We gotcha! by aldwarke
We gotcha!
OK! You see to his ears and I'll look after his teeth.
Was she beautiful, the girl on the till
Or was it the freshness of youth that glowed
From her cheeks and the brightness of her eyes,
Perhaps even her wavy flaxen hair
That made me look as she counted tickets
For bargain buys I’d saved for weeks and weeks?
'Got your own bags?'
'Need any help with packing?'
Just another supermarket girl.
And then she smiled at me.
Discussion over. Yes, she was beautiful.
     Christmas in the West
     A frenzy of food and drink
     Courtesy of third world
The school prom, a spectacle of colour,
Froth, finery, silks and tuxedos.
Meanwhile, the wistful waif from the sweatshop
Pressed her ghostly nose against the glass,
Looking in to see the undreamed happiness
She had enabled on six pence a day.
The school Prom
An extravaganza of conspicuous consumption.
A fifth baby hedgehog has now been rescued. Named Hermione from Harry Potter. All are putting on weight on a diet of mealworms and odds and ends. Hermione as the name suggests is female. She has had to be housed separately because she attacks the males.
I learn more about hedgehog behaviour every day.

Friday 24 October
The fifth and smallest baby hedgehog is not doing too well. She was fending for herself for too long outside. Elizabeth is feeding her with a dropper and hoping to pull her round. The others are steadily putting on weight.

Sunday 26 October
Hermione, the latest baby hedgehog died last night. Others still doing well. Hermione had been out in the wild too long and must have suffered the effects of cold and malnutrition.
 Sunday 2 November.
we are now down to the original three hedgehogs that were rescued in good time. Weight is the critical factor. Like most animals they are subject to worms. Our vet doesn't know the right dosage for hedgehogs or even the right medicine. However the survivors are doing well and putting on weight.
Heathcliffe  and one other have now reached sufficient weight to hibernate. They are now in suitable boxes in Elizabeth's garage.
The man at the Hedgehog Rescue Service has had an old boy for some years. It's blind and has three legs only but still lively. Never say die, eh?
