Ermine street

Lucy is having a fag break outside Catty Library when she notices something coming down the pavement.

It's a ferret.

It pauses to look at her and then scampers off in the direction of the post office.

What business could a ferret possibly have in a post office?

Seems like he knows something she doesn't know....he paused to pass on his wisdom and then thought better of it.......

I expect he was posting early for Christmas.
BTW when I was a child I had a ruched, red velveteen cloak with a real ermine collar. God knows where it came from.
