Left holding the baby

It was one of those brilliantly clear, crisp Winter days in Upper Snodding, and on the occasion of his 65th birthday, after years of devoted serviceLord Rupert’s Estate Manager,  Simon,  is handing back the keys to the Volvo 760.

A fine meal has been prepared in celebration,  culminating in the presentation of a magnificent cake, festooned with inextinguishable candles.

One might’ve expected such a trusted and devoted member of staff to receive the time-honoured retirement gift.  But no.

Lord Rupert had gone shopping for the present,  but unfortunately he’d got sidetracked at the Cattle Market.

Which explains why Simon ended being given the gift of a groundhog!
