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.
