Sunday 29 July 2012: Chip
This is Chip! I love Chip.
He's our neighbours dog, but he isn't always around. When he is, I get ridiculously excited and sing the Chip song, which goes like this: "chip chip chip chip chip chip chip chip chip chip!" etc.
Today I had the pleasure of playing ball with him in the courtyard, and stroking his soft ears. When he first saw me, he was excited and rubbed up against me, standing on my feet.
Chip has a sad history of abuse, but I won't repeat it here. He has had years of a good home, and he's happy now.
This morning was Book Group at Looking Glass Books. We discussed Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury, which most of us liked (apart from Cat, who had this violent reaction: "Hate it. Wanted to lock that boy in a cellar and leave him there.") , There was much hilarity, mostly because of MsK's fear of Ghostbusters.
Thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments yesterday! You're all wonderful creatures.
