               From the Dragons’ Den

George writing:  Val is at home cleaning her windows. She says that it’s either that or she will have to have new glass fitted.

Idris warned us recently that there was to be a ‘Grand De-cluttering’ and he thought that it might be a good idea if we stayed well hidden within the confines of our basket so that we wouldn’t become de-cluttered along with anything that didn’t seem to have a proper place.  So, we could only watch through the wicker of our basket as this grand occasion took place.

Val de-cluttered our cupboard a day early as she was sorting out what she needs to order in the way or art/craft items or other intricacies that are, apparently, essential to the continuance of Little Dragons.  If you could have heard her knees creaking as she delved into the rear areas of the cupboard, it would have made your hearts bleed.  We know that she has a bit of a ‘thing’ about everything in the cupboard being in its right place, so, as she has been heard to declare, she can open the cupboard even in the dark and find exactly what she wants, knowing that it will be in its right place.  Although, she has also been heard to say that it is very unlikely that such an occasion will ever arise, but we think we know what she means. 

Anyway, on the day of the G D-C, several people turned up to help and they had a great time sorting things out and tidying things away and making everything tidy.  I heard someone say that people who visit our church often remark on how well-cared for it is and how nicely things are set out.  So, it is worth all the effort to keep it looking nice and keeping everything in places where they can be reached by those who need them.

Uncle Sam, Idris and I now feel that we can safely venture forth and we know that, in an emergency, we can easily dive back under cover as, unless there is evidence of sabotage, we, like Val, should be able to leap into the cupboard even in the dark, as we are confident that everything will be in its proper place.  Such exciting times we live in!

Oops.  Need to sign off now as Idris is calling a meeting.  He is, no doubt, up to something!

Best wishes, George, Uncle Sam and Idris
