The Pillstons have Company.

Myrtle with sons Lester and Laman

It has come to my attention that the Pillstons of Shepherd's Lane have visitors. Paul Pillston’s divorced sister Myrtle and her two lay about sons Lester and Laman have come for Spring Vacation from Dibley in the Downs.

Myrtle is the cook at the Knight Arms Cottage, a bed and breakfast establishment found on Dibley’s High Street. Myrtle is quick to tell you about her specials. Her pride and joy is her secret recipe for Bangers and Mash. We’re told it is legend among the Knight Arms regulars.

Lester and Laman are students at Dibley’s village school and do reasonably well considering their handicap. Myrtle says they are learning disabled on account of their father. It appears he passed his tendency to lay about and do nothing to his sons. Myrtle avoids disappointment by not expecting much from them.

The Pillstons plan on renting a room at the Kicking Donkey Pub on Thursday for a small family reunion and invite all friends and relatives to attend. Paul is extending a special invitation to all of Cloverdale’s unmarried men between the ages of 35 and 60 to come to the party. The first drink of the night will be on his tab. Myrtle will cook Bangers and Mash and Lester and Laman promise to bathe.

A special Cloverdale in the Shire welcome to Myrtle and her family!
