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....
