Missing in the Post – Seen somewhere ?
I was prompted to write to Digamextra after someone mentioned post going to the wrong house and a mystery parcel.  About three years ago I posted a painting to someone in Vinuela and it never arrived.  Just wonder if anyone has seen this painting displayed anywhere as I’ve always wondered what happened to it.  Margaret mariordan at aol dot com
