Dance of The Dead

    Number 6 must suffer from cold feet, no I don’t mean he’s lost his nerve or confidence, just that he sleeps with his socks on! He can  make even the act of putting on his dressing gown appear a gesture of defiance, but he didn’t put his slippers on as he did that morning during ‘The Chimes of Big Ben,’ His dressing gown is the same, but he has a light blue pair of pyjamas this morning. Perhaps his darker pair are in the wash. After all he does have two different blazers, two of everything in fact, one on and one in the wash as the saying goes.
    Number 6 generally shows by the way he puts on his dressing gown that he’s woken up in a bad mood, or is annoyed about something. That morning of ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ the loudspeaker was getting on his nerves, that and the fact he couldn’t turn it off. So he placed it in the refrigerator, and he instantly felt better having scored a small victory. But this morning Number 6 was annoyed for a different reason. They had conducted an experiment on him before he’d even got out of bed!
   There they are, citizens parading in the piazza, all getting excited about Carnival. Just a minute! As the Butler looked down on this scene, there were two chaps in wet suits, frogmen, they cannot be seen now, what happened to them? I can only think that when no-one was looking they dived into the free sea and escaped the village that way!


Be seeing you
