The Haunted Bed

I will return to the shaggy dog story I was telling youse* yesterday. To refresh your memory you might like to take a look at the picture of Bert lying in bed surrounded by his menagerie. Most unhygienic but there you go. Is anyone old enough to remember a band called Three Dog Night? That was a Native American term for a very cold night. Since Danny died Bert has noticed that Rosie and Danny don’t like to sleep on the bed. Rosie happily sleeps under it but not on it. The cat won’t go near it nor will Paddy. Bert is convinced that the bed is haunted and the ghost of Danny keeps the others at bay.
