Sir Thomas Grey has the right idea. Sitting outside in the cool of fall, enjoying all the beautiful colors. Of course, if I was there with him, I’d be enjoying a hot coffee and a gingerbread cake too! I first met this colonial cat when visiting the basketmakers at Colonial Williamsburg. At that time, their shop was located behind the George Wythe House. Mr. Grey, as they called him, would make his way around the yard, coming in and out of the shop as he pleased. When their location for the day changed from in the shop to outside under the tarp in the backyard, I found him curled up in a basket taking a nap. Then when visiting the backyard of Bruton Parish Church, he had made his way to this bench, probably a favorite quiet place of his to enjoy the day. Yes, Sir Thomas Grey has the right idea.
