Office al fresco, what the heck does that mean? Miss Penny speaking, it means Susan has moved her office outside on the balcony. It’s pretty cool watching the windsurfers and sailboats on the river except when our upstairs neighbour chucks a bucket of water on their balcony, I’m not kidding it’s like a waterfall, not that I’ve ever seen a waterfall I’m repeating what Susan said, except I’ve omitted some unsavoury words. Psst! Oh yes, prim and proper Susan can swear when she gets mad, I have to cover my delicate ears. Back to al fresco. I like to peer through the hole and watch the people on the ground; they look about my size from up here. The breeze is nice and cool as it flutters through my fur. Well, actually there is no fluttering at the moment; I have matts. Not the kind you step on, but the kind that twists and knots in my furry coat. Susan tries to
brush me but I’m naughty and won’t stay still. Well, it tickles and pulls and hurts when she gets to the matted undercoat. Do you know what she does next? She snips with the scissors; she snippety-snips through the matts—now I’m lob-sided. I look a mess and the groomer can’t see me for three weeks. If Susan keeps snip, snipping I’ll have no coat left and you know what that means. Buzzzzzzzz! That’s the sound of the electric clippers as the groomer shaves me naked. I tell you I am not looking forward to that. But for now I’ll enjoy the Office Al Fresco and watching Susan write, although she’s not doing much these days. Of course, she should be in
England preparing her mother’s 100th birthday party, but this corona thing is still around so she can’t go and is trying to arrange things within the British corona guidelines from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s not working too well and poor Granny is so disappointed. I feel so sorry for her. This bl**dy corona thing! See, even I’m swearing now. I’d hand you over to Susan, but she doesn’t have much to say. It has been a stressful week so maybe I’ll just sign off. Maybe you could just have a look or a read of one her books, she’d like that. Stay safe, everyone.
