The photo above shows Bertie at his most dictatorial, following a freak accident where his typing paw got squashed underneath a ball of mozzarella while he was reordering his cheese cellar. The bad news is that he is standing on my keyboard telling me exactly what to type and what I need to say and how to structure my sentences and where the punctuation comes (it is a deep and abiding wonder that we have been able to work together for as long as we have, given our very different positions on the Oxford comma)- the good news is that all he can do is stamp his feet and squeak a lot if he doesn’t like what I am typing because there hyu ewf kewdaskml8u,m zcx asddsakjlzvx8967hjnmjpokn. OK, OK, I’ll do what you say- just stop stamping on the keys, and my fingers. What comes first? Oh yes, the joke… two medical-ish ones for today-

A small Dorset mouse send this question: Bertie, my lovely (in my best Darset accent) it might be helpful to let people know where they can obtain the cards for Beat the Street. I believe Morrisons are providing them, but not sure who else is part of the scheme. Chèvre the love! Bertie is, he dictates, very amused by the pun there- and is keen to say that Emmbrook Post Office and Wokingham Library also have cards to collect. Enjoy!
Here is the Parish Report for 2020, with more to come, once Bertie has remembered which safe place he put them in…
