I took three full drawers of oddments back to Suburbia Somnolenta with me.
Mr CJ, Del and Della, Charlie and Karl were gathered on and near the bench in front of Mr & Mrs CJ’s house. I showed them some old photos, from my schooldays, that I was taking away. Mrs CJ joined us after a few minutes.
Just about the last thing I did before leaving was find the key to the bureau in my bedroom. When I left, the CJ family were no longer to be seen; I suppose they had gone indoors for a late lunch.
