A dream of squeaky

Standard

I was in another country. NZ I think. I was staying in a house with two women who were much old than me. Then mother eas there. he house had a woden floor. I was trying not to annout these people in that pokey house. It was unlovely and I do not recall the view. Not sure what I was doing there. Then mater said I was a Ganymede. She said it slowly and deliberately. It was notn quite ana ccusation. I was docile and responded in a measured manner that she was mistaken. she kept repeating it. we had discussed such conduct at the duke;s head yesternigth with the chums who showed up.

Laer I thoyght of a small man with a very dense warm brown beard. He was known as squaeaky n account of his rasping voice. He served foul beer. remers had compaliedn about such a chap in kent in 1994. Remers nonetheless drank the horrid beer. I awaoke and laughed myself silly at the name Squeaky remidned me of sequaky ave the very slender bald chap in dukhan.

later I was upin the thorne. had been dressed up as dracual playing with Fridays child. then he looked in 0 loo door was open. buni and bu came in. came too close. disliked being crowded. someone beside me was crowding me in reality. bu pulled a wooden partition out to guard my dignty.

going to the house. I feel a tad gauche that I shall spend time in saddler’s place.
