    " It was good that he found someone that he could share all he wanted to do with, like waking up in the morning, having tea, resting in the summer sometimes...oh, and then in the winter, turning on the opera very loud and singing to it. And it was funny that he put "Tabby" on his mailbox too, to tell the mailer that he had a cat. "
