The mother however, still finds me hideous. I try to look pretty and stay out of her hair, but just the other day as I was minding my own business on the balcony, she came out to hang up the the laundry. She saw me and got quite startled. She laughed it off of course, but I could see on her face that I nearly gave her a rat-attack. I know she doesn’t think highly of me. I overheard her telling her husband that I am not very photogenic.
On the bright side, I have been enjoying the Manchego cheese here in Spain. The cheese is heavenly! Whenever I place a morsel of it in my mouth, I am swept away by adoration and gratitude. Little by little, I feel as if I am transforming into Una Rata Española.
Here I am relaxing on the beach. The children made me the king of their sand castle. Well, that is it for now.
Warm regards to all,
DeSilva the Rat Fink
