Charades at Badger House

‘Close To Me (1990)’ – The Cure

Maggie wrote to me today.  I have got a fluey cold and don’t feel too good.  Needless to say her letter cheered me up greatly.
This afternoon I went to The Angel – empty of familiar faces.  So I got on a bus and headed off to fulfil my invitation to visit the Flowers family at BADGER HOUSE.  On the bus, I saw Legs, who is apparently moving to London – or so he hopes – where he thinks he has work as a security guard.
At BADGER, I said my hello’s to Siegfried and Annette and Stan’s older brother, Cliff, whom I was meeting for the first time.
Eventually, Stan, Michelle, Russ and his fiancée Rebecca arrived.  Together, we ate tonnes of curry and several desserts.  After this, we had an evening of charades that went on very late indeed.
