Fred is here with the special chimney and the three-part ladder. I'm really worried about him because he was so shaky when I gave him the usual mug of tea before starting. The tea was sloshing everywhere. "Are you sure you're okay to go up there?" I asked him. "Right," said Fred. His hearing is gone as well. Anyway, the cardinals will have to wait. We had dibs on Fred's special chimney rental first.
