Mr Arthur has the key!May 30th, 2011 by Chung Fu Magic Teddy Bear
So …. Mr Rick is confused and troubled. He cannot get to the postbox to see if there is any post because he has lost the key!
This happens lots of times – get key, get Gwen, get post, get busy somewhere else and then FORget key!
It could be in trouser pocket, or on Granny Westhorpe’s welsh dresser, or in the Barn with the bluetits, or … UP MR. ARTHUR’S SLEEVE!
How? Why? Mr. Caerthan thinks it is a stitch up – Mr. Rick framing Mr. Arthur, but I know better than this. That Mr. Arthur is chuckling under his breath as he looks to the sky in innocent bear-wonder. Not so innocent, I think!
Mr. Caerthan is too trusting …
Actually, Mr. Arthur is just being helpful, and surprise surprise I knew about it all along! Yes! I did!
What happens is this ….
Mr. Rick is confused and troubled. He cannot get to the postbox to see … but you know this part already. Some time later, he is in time-for-bed, still confused, still troubled, when he sees the key under the cosy secondhand longjohns at the foot of the bed. It all becomes clear.
He has got key, got Gwen, got post, got busy somewhere else and put key in pocket of trousers. The key falls out of the trousers onto the bed and is lost in the cosy secondhand longjohns. Ta dah!
At this point I am busy unwinding Mr. Rick from the long day, and so rather than Mr Rick get up to put key in safe place,, Mr. Arthur puts the key in safe place into his jumper. Chung Fu has NO sweater or I would have done so myself.
So, nothing untoward going on in Pistyll Gwyn, and everybody is happy.
Mr. Rick – go to postbox!
