One Boy and His Dog

I have just started reading Eva Ibbotson's final book. She had only just finished correcting the proofs when she died in her sleep aged 85. From what I've read so far, and also from the reviews this book has garnered, I'd say she died on top of her game. I'll tell you more when I've finished reading it.

Then repeat all of the above a few more times.

Bert, Ernie and Rubber Ducky.

There's a petition going the rounds to have Bert and Ernie get married on Sesame Street. Some people might not approve, but it seems to me that anyone getting married should have a song, especially someone on Sesame Street. I decided to write a duet for Bert and Ernie, just in case.

Bert:'You and me and rubber ducky/Ernie we are oh so lucky/Always together in all kinds of weather/We were meant to be.'

Ernie: 'You and me and rubber ducky/Bert, you're right, we're oh so lucky/We're getting married 'cos we're feeling plucky/We were meant to be - You, Rubber Ducky and me.'

I know, it might sound like a threesome, but it's not. Rubber Ducky is only their toy, not a real living breathing puppet.
