As mentioned by Harlow in a comment on the previous blog post. Red Caps can be found in many other countries other than Ireland. They relocate along with their human companions and maintain their fine traditions by keeping the same dress code and customs.
Harald and Freda in Dorset, England.
Now, here is a good example of a Darby and Joan type who have been partners since the beginning of time. They are Harald and Freda. The latter is responsible for ensuring that her relations are all well dressed and because of this I received a message from her meant for Hazel. I will share it with you all and ask that you pass it on, just in case you meet up with him first.
"They, Harald and Freda, really enjoyed his adventures and are glad he is getting on so well in Ireland. However Freda is a little concerned that Hazel is a bit tipsy as his hat is rather crooked in several photos. She says she will make a nice new warm felt one for the winter."
We move now to a Spa town set in the heartlands of the English countryside to meet Thorn who is Hazel's learned brother.
Thorn's speciality is keeping the young humans entertained and assisting them in their education. The knowledge that they acquire from him is very different to that of normal human education.
Thorn demonstrating the uses of the trampoline which he says can lead
to flights of another kind and magical realms,
depending upon intuitive capabilities of the student.
Tractor driving is not one of Thorn's ideal pursuits,
as can be seen by the fearful look on his face,
it is however a favourite with his pupil who has been enamoured with tractors ever
since driving a Massey-Fergusson on his holidays in Ireland.
Here the learned Thorn excels at chalking the alphabet and numbers
in an effort to assist his pupil in the arts of literacy and numerics.
Balance in all things says Thorn!
"If only the young fellow would stay abed more
often I would get time off to go visiting
my friends who live in the local parks."
As you can see in the photos these small creatures get around so don't be surprised if you spot a small red cap bobbing through the grass near you!
