Prayer for the Return of the Jumble to the Boxes Till Next Time

Jumble that is donated for charitable purposes has but a short time in the daylight.

It is spread out on a table in the porch. It is offered to passers-by. It is ignored, and then once again departs into darkness.

And so we consign this jumble to its boxes, old books and tea towels; souvenir thermometers from Malaga and unneeded mug-trees. In sure and certain knowledge that they'll be taken out again next month.

Anybody want to buy this "Magpie" annual from 1977?

    Until they have garnered so many chips, cracks, scratches and tears from the repeated packing and unpacking that they can't be given away with a pound of tea, in which case some morally feeble member of the Jumble team will weakly put in a donation, take them home and give them decent burial.

    Take it from One Who Knows.
