all about gerald

Whenever Patsington and I spy an amusing animal, one of us will always say, in a very serious voice, "ah, look, there's another of Ju Ju's friends." And then we give the animal a name, usually a very prosaic one. A few months ago, we took the alternative route home from the bus stop and spotted a hilarious-looking fluffy white dog sitting outside a house.
"Oh my God, it's Ju Ju in dog form!" said Patsington.
"What do you think his name is?" I said.
"Gerald," said Patsington, without missing a beat. And so Gerald he became.

I always look out for Gerald if I take that route home from the bus stop, because he's just so incredibly fluffy and funny-looking. But this afternoon I was on my way home after a delightful lunch with barsine, and I passed Gerald's house. And imagine my amazement when I saw not one Gerald, but THREE!

Yes, apparently Gerald is one of triplets. I burst out laughing when I saw them - it was such an unexpected sight. I wonder have there always been three of them, and I've been seeing a different one every time? Or perhaps Gerald's siblings are merely paying him a visit? Who knows? All I know is that the three of them together is almost too fluffy for words....

Gerald is Ju Ju's only canine chum so far, but his new siblings don't have names yet! Some of her other imaginary friends (who include an owl, a preposterously fluffy goat we saw on the news, a fish, a thing that looked like a pantomime cow that we saw in an ad in the vet's, and a dormouse) are called Lionel, Muffles, George, Fishington, Bu Bu and Hoots.

I should add that they're the only ones I remember - everytime we see a funny-looking animal we decide it's one of Ju Ju's mates, so the list is endless!

We call them the U-U's (pronounced ooh-ooh)! And Ju Ju is indeed their leader...

Can I keep a miniature version of you and Patsington in my pocket? You're so adorable!
