17th December

imagesCAYVNOTJMy cat had to go to the vet today for his annual check up. Final score: Cat 1 Vet 0. The poor man may still be mopping the blood off his arm. So, in his honour, today’s quote:  ‘Some people say man is the most dangerous animal on the planet. Obviously those people have never met an angry cat.’ (Lillian Johnson)

Today’s book is poetry, just for a change. While it should really have been Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, to fit the theme, instead I’m choosing T S  Eliot’s  The Wasteland. Now I don’ t pretend for a second to understand it, but it thrills me every time I read it. And without it, Wendy Cope would never have been able to write the amazing Wasteland Limericks
