I called into Murray tonight, I suppose I keep hoping that the Lindens have put it back the way it was, but it’s still very peaceful and quite boring. However, you do get the odd character who makes it worth a visit. I met a rather large black rat there today, and his name is Drakebel Alvord. When I first spotted him he was amusing himself by swinging his head about in time to a little tune he was humming to himself. I’ve always liked rats, find them very agreeable animals full of charm, so I started talking to him. I wasn’t wrong, he turned out to be a very nice, friendly rodent.
He reminded me of our little furry friends Jerry and Squee, who used to dance around in Murray, they were always full of life and fun. Drakebel gave me a copy of his song and dance routine, which I accepted and although I declined to dance there and then, to my amusement, he carried on without me. I did worry that he looked a little deformed because his tail seemed to be in the wrong place when he was dancing, but he assured me that it went back where it was supposed to be, once he went back on all four pink feet.
Drakebel was good company and I hope he comes back to Murray to see me, I gave him a couple of pictures to take away with him, to remind him of our time together in the oh so peaceful, but boring Murray.
