Boswestblog Goes on (Brief) Sabbatical

Boswestblog will be on sabbatical for the rest of the month, while urgent literary and other matters are attended to.

In the interim, we present this special compilation of the “Boswestblog Top Ten” - as chosen by YT (no, not Air Togo, the Yukon Territory, or yellowTab) - for your perusal.

Peruse, peruse!

“Haiku For Ben”

by Gus Ferguson

Just like New Zealand -
it’s so nice to see the odd
