Tommy should have been called ‘Bang Bang’; he belonged to friends of mine, was asleep in front of the AGA till he heard the larder door opening. The slowest stretch ever ensued until he opened just one eye at the very end of his stretch as if to say “Is there anything coming out of that larder that might take my fancy? If so, could you possibly fling it my way?!” So why did I call him Tommy? No idea!
