My son's "friend" Dad Rat accompanied me to school last Thursday morning. Really my rat, but on long term loan to The Young Master, Dad Rat is one of 14 or 15 Ikea rats in his possession. The rats usually reside in a pyramid on the sofa in the upstairs TV room. I know. I know. Don't ask.
The other shots illustrate, or course, the attire for last Thursday.
Most interesting, is the vintage New Yorker necktie, which features Eustace Tilley and dates to the 1960s. A longtime subscriber to the magazine The New Yorker, how could I resist? I picked it up on Ebay two or three years ago.
