Threescore and five years ago my mother brought forth, in this sceptred isle, a new life. Born in a century tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage.
Now as I enter the sixth act of life, tis time to empty the last litter tray.
( I could have made this a Christmas quiz. Answers: Abe Lincoln, JFK and Bill from up the road in Stratford-upon-Avon.)
Or to put it another way, in January 2013 I’ll be 65 years old, and taking my pension.
In many ways I regret closing K-Wood Cattery, which has been my life for the last 24 years. I’ll miss my guests (some more than others) and I thank the customers who have supported me over the years.
For anyone who wishes to get in touch with me in the future, I intend to keep my current numbers for a while. However it seems that as a residential BT customer I have to revert to analogue ’phone lines. If my current number is unobtainable try adding 302 (sum, not concatenation).
