Maisie Mercury


Maisie Mercury was banished from the School of Gods to Earth because she was badly behaved. She was set a number of tasks by Jupiter, the chief god. She was doing well , but she didn’t realise her school teacher, Somnus,  was trying to sabotage her efforts so that she wouldn’t return to his classroom.  She returns in  other stories where she is put in charge of new wishing well,  and another time a crystal ball, but again a rival tries to strip her of her post.

  1. Just for the record, the first of the ‘Maisie Mercury’ titles as listed above started in BUNTY 1451 (November 2 1985). The third ‘Maisie Mercury’ title listed above ended in BUNTY 1742 (June 1 1991). All the mischief in the latter was in full colour.

    As a more or less irrelevant aside, the singer featured on the rear cover of BUNTY 1734, which alerts the reader to the serials beginning the following week, one of which was ‘Maisie Mercury’, is Belinda Carlisle. My late friend Billy Nicholls used to fancy her something rotten, but I couldn’t see what he saw in her. Lesley Anne Down on the other hand was a different kettle of fish.

  2. I am reliably informed that apart from SPAR, there are hardly any small shops still open here in Hayle. McColls deliver my ordered copy of ‘The Guardian’ by 8.30 from Monday to Saturday, and my grandson, Jordan, will always do an ASDA shop for me if I ask him nicely. Mind you, one of these mornings he might just ask me to look after his four-year-old daughter, Ava, till he gets back, and that child is a bundle of energy. I think I’ve only been down the town three times since March 17th. I did go to the local pharmacy this morning for some medication, and they were insisting on all individuals in the queue staying about eight feet apart, and when you eventually got to one of the three windows, you had to tell that receptionist who you were, and then go back to where you were until someone called out your name to go up and collect your blister pack. You couldn’t talk to anybody because even if it looked like you were going to approach one, they would instantly move away. I’m glad I drove down there as I couldn’t get back home quickly enough. While I was out, Parcelforce had left a large package at my side door. It contained fourteen novels for girls that I had ordered from one eBay dealer, so I was able to spend a pleasant half hour checking them for missing pages or other flaws, before noting their titles in my lists, but they were all intact. I am reading a shedload of books these days, and when I get weary at least I can FaceTime Lois for a pleasant and sensible chat, which I did just before lunch. The lazy mare was still in bed, but to be fair we had quite a long conversation. Stay at home, friends, and stay well.
