In need of your support
'I'm really not happy about this,' said Captain Bill.
'Well I think it'll peel off,' replied Norma.
'No,' said Captain Bill, 'I meant about this whole business.'
'You mean Cow Island Monday?' replied Norma. 'I think it sounds like a wonderful idea for fans of Cow Island to do their bit to help bring Cow Island to a wider audience and also be in with a chance of winning a quite wonderful prize which will include original illustrations from this very blog!'
'You're reading from a script aren't you?' said Captain Bill.
'It's just notes really,' replied Norma. 'But the point is the Great Pencil would like to ask all our fans to do something on Monday to help to promote us. They could just tell someone they know or tweet or blog about us, anything really, just to help to spread the silliness a little wider.'
Captain Bill stopped and looked at Norma.
'He's not...he's not trying to get the readers into double figures is he? I mean ambitions a fine thing but there is a limit.'
'Now that's not kind,' replied Norma.
'Hmm,' said Captain Bill, 'I suppose it could work, but it'll need careful planning, Monday's blog will have to be a 1st rate affair, there won't be any room for anything that's less than the very best we can offer...who's doing it?'
'Annie,' said Norma.
'ANNIE!' mooed Captain Bill.
COW ISLAND MONDAY......REALLY, YOU NEED TO BE THERE!
