Wullie Campbell (Agnes’s dad) returns from the war to find a strange baby in his house, and a high-end pram.
- “the baby’s pink arms reached out to him, like it knew and trusted the deep well of goodness from which Wullie Campbell had sprung.”
- “She had never let Mr. Kilfeather kiss her, she felt she had to tell him that.”
Wullie takes the strange baby out in the pram. Neighbors hear him whistling all the way down the street!
Self rushed all her errands today (even forgave that young Asian woman in the bright blue compact who cut into her lane and gave her the most WICKED side eye — you can bet self leaned on the horn, the loudest bleeaaaeat she could manage. It’s amazing how rude some people can be) just so she could grab her book and read further about Wullie Campbell and the strange baby and the high-end pram and Mr. Kilfeather.
Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
