With Halloween at Castle Greysquirrell over, Darrell had started moping around the house saying that he was missing Hugh ….. and wondering what he was up to etc. etc. etc.etc. etc……………..
….. until, in the end, I said “Darrell, for goodness sake just phone Hugh and see if he is free for you to go and stay with him for a couple of days!” And with that Darrell was gone! Hugh was free, train tickets were booked and suitcases packed!
Within three hours or so Darrell and Hugh were reunited! And Hugh, like all of us was embracing his fuzz and supporting Movember!
He was also sporting a rather splendid cross about his person that Darrell just couldn’t take his eyes, wondering if he too ought get one too while he was away, lest he should look not look de rigueur enough.
“Oh Darrrreeell, one cannot be too careful at this tide of all Halloween, when all zee spirits are aroused and there is an ill wind and chill in zee air ……..
…… but I am a little afeared that in doing zee spooky pumpkin thingy I may be breaking zee hallowed codes of zee Halloween, so I wear zee cross as a protection …..
I have also brought a little extra of zee garlic to protect us from any rogue vampires that may be roaming zee streets of Notting Hill tonight and knocking at our door ….. !!!!”
At that Darrell broke into the most humungous fit of “zee” giggles that made him laugh so hard Hugh had to fetch a paper bag for Darrell to breath into to get his aforementioned breath back …… “Oh Hugh” he gasped “I have missed you sooooo much and your showbiz ways you almost had me believing you! What are you like?” Happy Days!!
