Meet the Arnold's
A week of wintry merriment is over. Lovely overseas visitors have come and gone. All that is left are lots of lovely memories... and the Arnold's.
Now Mr Arnold was created one afternoon when the temperatures rose just enough to enable such creative activity. A lantern was also made, to give him a bit of light through the dark winter nights...
... while he kept a beady eye on the house, making sure all was well with its inhabitants. But already after one night he told us that house watching was rather lonely activity, and that he sure would appreciate some company.
It was decided that his wish should come true. After all he was not asking for the moon, was he now...? So without further ado... meet Mrs Arnold. I can assure you we now have one happy couple to keep a watchful eye on our property.
I have enquired how long they plan they stay, but they really could not tell. They might be gone overnight, they said, if the wind turned southerly and the temperatures rose. Yet again, if the cool weather continued, they just might hang around for quite some time.
Whatever they decide to do I have assured them that they are welcome to stay as long as the please (weather permitting... ;-)
