Can you dig it?
I urge my friends list to take a look at the first two pages of Old Silver-Grizzle the Badger by E. T. Seton, because I suspect that many of you will be as delighted by the idea of a dirigible badger as I was. A small cheering thing.

The rest of the book is lovely, but mostly nothing to do with badgers, dirigible or otherwise.

(Thank you all for your kind & helpful comments on my previous post. You are all Better Than Badgers.)

Good iconisation.

Although I was thinking of a badger-themed airship, temporarily forgetting what 'dirigible' actually means, and that in that context it's merely short for 'dirigible airship' ...

I urge you to google for, "A badger with a mission."

Ah yes! I think someone else pointed me at that recently & I never got round to looking at it... will have a look, thank you :)
