Comrades - these last few months have been so busy I hardly know where to start!
I have been back to the Motherland where it all began and have just returned from Germany!
It all started with a dead letter drop, for those who are not skilled in the art of espionage a dead letter drop is a means of communications between agents and their masters without the need to actually meet.
I have several secret drops which I visit on a regular basis. They have been empty for a good while now, but recently I was reactivated and my life once more became very exciting.
In the old days we would use all sorts of places to leave messages, all pre planned and thought out, and some of us old school spies still use them. Yes, we are still about!
However, in this day and age it is far easier to use electronic means of communications.
Very simply we use an email address, both handler and spy have access to the same account. You compose an email and save it to draft. On no account would you send it. If you do then the powers who watch over us may well see it and take a closer look at your activity.
By leaving it in draft format, you can read and delete without it going through the web. It is that simple.
Anyway, I digress! So what have I been up-to?
I'm afraid Comrades, that is a State secret, but just when you expect to lead a quiet life you are suddenly thrust out into the light once more.
I must say it has been fun, Hamburg is an interesting city, full of surprises, some good, some not so good.
I managed to meet some very old friends and it has been good to catch up Vladimir, oh how we chuckled at the way the USA has elected a Гребаный идиот !!!!
It is a shame we could not spend longer together, our friendship goes back many years and is as strong now as it was back in the early days.
I may now return to refine the art of making bespoke "Beard Oil" for the more concerning Gentleman, who appreciates, fine wine, cigars, women and a beard that a bear would die for.
