Singing for Mrs. Pettigrew-Teaser Tuesday

What a lovely holiday it has been. Something  very special about having an extra day off. Tomorrow is Tuesday and back to school.Ugh!   Graduation project must be done-check.  Inventory and state reports need to be done.  No more classes to brighten my day. Reports cards need to be done.  Lots of quiet time with paper work will fill my day!

Without further ado Teaser Tuesday is waiting...Should be Reading has all the rules posted so you too can play along.

Cherry sat with them by the fire till it died away to nothing.  She longed to go, to get home among the living, but the old man talked on of his family and their little one-room cottage with a ladder to the bedroom, where they all huddled together for warmth, of his friends that used to meet in the Tinners'  Arms every evening.  There were tales of wrecking and smuggling, and all the while the young man sat silent until there was a lull in the story.  "Father," he said.  "I think our little friend would like to go home now.  Shall I take her up as I usually do?"  (44) 
 Singing for Mrs. Pettigrew; Stories and Essays from a Writing Life by Michael Morpurgo

Why is it I can never just pick two sentences.. the whole quote works so well for me.

Great teaser! Yes, it would have been difficult to find a place to cut that one. Haven't heard of this book, but it sounds interesting.

My teaser.
