hero is locked in a garden shed. Long story, he was
caught stealing a turnip by an older lady, she was
tough, long grey hair and whiskers. Don't get me wrong
there was no man handling involved, rather it was the
arrival of the older lady's daughter which put a shock
in the circumstance, and it was the older lady's
suggestion he hide in the garden shed. He obliged, she
closed the shed door and she latched it.
there are several ways to introduce our hero to the Welsh
Language. It always sounds beautiful, made for the mists and
the poet, and the older lady's daughter did have sharp words
for her mother who was outside in her dressing gown, no
shoes on her feet, frigid morning at the end of February.
Not a word of the younger woman's crystal language did our
hero understand, but the reply was in English, "I'm eighty
two and I'll wear shoes when I want to."
