Archie and the Moleskine

I’ve often heard it said that owners begin to look and act like their animals. Well, Archie is becoming more and more sociable. In fact, he sulks noticeably if we don’t go to the bar for an aperitif, an activity which Lesley, Archie and myself now enjoy togther, though he has yet to actually buy a round. He has also always liked playing with plectrums and pencils. So I suppose this was the next logical step……

What about?

As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti 

That’s from ‘Africa’ by Toto.

It’s no use, he sees her, he starts to shake and cough, just like the old man in that book by Nabokov

A classic by Sting from ‘Don’t stand so close to me.’
