    Actually I did mean to say fluff. Flub seems to only be used in America.

    Yes, indeed. He is a very far-thinking and concerned person. He always has been, since he was a little boy. He made a comment in one of his more recent speeches that being the Prince of Wales is not a position it is more of a predicament. He is in his early seventies now and can never retire. Life as a senior member of the British Royal Family is very difficult. they have very little private life.

    That is the reason why I don’t like movies that are made from live plays or musicals. I much prefer live theatre. Perhaps it is just Americans who don’t like Cats; T S Elliot is very English.

    Why is there so much negative feedback about Cats. Cats is a musical play featuring the poems of T S Elliot. It is generally performed by young girls who are ballet dancers dressed up as cats and most of them sing the songs as well. The original Cats production was by Andrew Lloyd Webber and it was a world hit. It is generally favoured by woman and young children. T S Elliot wrote amazing poetry; if you have ever read any of them you may begin to appreciate them. There are a few private schools in South Africa who have Cats as part of the syllabus for the senior students who are taking art and drama.

    The principal must be wondering how much stranger Calvin’s stories can become.

    Oh dear, perhaps they should have given a little more thought to this. Now Michael is going to have his nose put out of joint. :(

    Perhaps Opal didn’t speak very clearly. Many old people fluff their words a bit, especially if their dentures don’t fit very well. :)

    Yes, indeed, at the beginning of January we were having 14 hours of relentless sunshine. My step-daughter and her husband visit from Paris in the middle of their winter, just so that they can soak up some sunshine.

    Yes, precisely, Harry has never completely recovered from the grief of his mother’s death. He and his brother were very closely bonded to their mother and they saw how miserable she was living in the goldfish bowl that is the British Royal Family.

    This is one of my favourite strips. :)
