dear readers, my boy and himself have taken up online computer games. they sit in my boy's room at their respective machines, running through tunnels and slaying gremlins. when herself went in yesterday evening they made their characters wave at each other! it is most surreal. my boy has already managed to drag proceedings down to a smutty teenage level. he proudly showed herself how he had been on a quest to find some odd sort of berries and that in return for completing this quest a lady character was going to bake him a pie and take her blouse off. as he says, computer games are so educational...
and some other news which has had me leaping about with glee - i am going to have a puppy! not me personally you understand. that would be a first for medical science even if i had not had my wedding tackle removed. no, this puppy is going to come and live with us! as you know, i love puppies. they have a real sense of fun and make me seem really grown up. i so enjoyed taking young rokit under my wing and teaching him a few tricks. its a pity he had to go and live in london, although i gather he is now something of a media star.
our new puppy is called dave and is also a lurcher. he was named after my boy's taxi driver. the little chap is the son of a lady lurcher belonging to the kind man who originally rescued my now sadly departed lady friend. dave is one of 8 puppies. when i heard this i was rather alarmed. while one puppy will be sheer joy, 8 might be a little too much for an old codger like me. but i was worrying unduly, dave's brothers and sisters are all going off to other homes.
we are off to fetch the little chap on saturday, so i will post some pictures of him as soon as we get back. wish me luck!
