First let me say Mavis thinks I am stark raving mad. Today was Louis exam day. He is a bit nervous. Which is natural, but I’ve reassured him that he will be ok.
Every morning when I take him up the lane on his early morning walk I talk to him about all sorts of things, Recently we have discussed black holes and the singularity.
Life out in the universe and ancient civilizations. So he has a lot to take in. He recently did well in his maths and English exams . He got 5 A grades so I was pleased. So this morning after a short revision we set off . It was a bit damp under foot but bright and sunny. Traffic was light. So I told him he had 30 minutes to answer the first 10 questions from the moment we stepped outside. As usual he trotted ahead. I asked him all his questions and gave him time to think about it. When it was time to turn round and walk back I could see that confident stride. Tail was held high and his jaunty pad with the occasional look back at me showed he was confident of a pass mark.
He leapt through the open door to greet Mavis again. So I said have you told mummy the good news. She said well did you pass baby. I said he has passed with flying colors. Soon he will have to leave home and go to university. He could get his phd.
Now life has settled back a bit. he is asleep after his ordeal but I am sure he has a smile on his face.
Did anyone watch the Great Fire Last night. I was left bored. I expected more. best bit of soap news was that bitch is still locked in her tin box and jay and sam wont be letting her out anytime soon. Now its dingle against dingle.
Later a trip out and a bit of shopping. We seem to have got out town back now the summer season is closing.
Also out there walking was a group walking a little dog. The young man with the dog was on his phone. ” Yes Its arranged he is going to the re home assessment centre on monday. I have not told my little girl yet. I dont want to do it but I have to.”
Thats all I heard but how sorry I felt for that little dog padding along in oblivion that in a few days time it will be dumped into a new home . What we put our pets through. I just thought it was appropriate today after louis graduated.
