FOOTNOTES: The mat inside the front door having resounded to the almost daily thump of gardening magazines and seed catalogues arriving through the letter box, I had decided to save them up and go through them in one fell swoop, aided by Chaplin who sat on the discarded ones, thus avoiding them sliding off my desk. He has taken up permanent residence next to the phone and within easy paws reach of my laptop keys. I always know when lunch is imminent, when I am working, because a velvety paw will languidly stretch across and rest gently but firmly on my left hand, preventing me from typing. Appetites having been satisfied, I am then free to resume, watched by Chaplin, until he falls asleep. I gathered the remaining gardening catalogues and went outside to see what would be suitable for where, made my choices and returned inside to order by phone the few items I needed. Gently easing Chaplin’s bushy tail from where it was wrapped around the base, so I could dial. Sound asleep he never even opened an eye, but purred slightly as I finished the call, replaced the receiver and put his tail back where it had originally been. All was right with his world, and for once all was right with mine. Have a good week and go safely.
