Stop the clock.  Turn back time.  There are days when we wistfully remember when the milkman drove his wagon through the streets and the mailman called a celebratory hello to neighbors as he walked his route.  

Newly retired Mr. Albert Cleghorn lives in just such a neighborhood.  He's waking up to a new life.  What will he do with his day now that he doesn't have to go to work any more?

On this day he discovers a seal pup alone on a rock  and decides to bring it home with him.  He and his gallant lady friend, Miss Craig, work very hard to find this lovely seal pup a good home.  The good hearts of the two friends remind readers that the world can add up and things can be right and fair.

A nostalgic look at kindness, love and caring for others.
