This Diary is the centre of his life, where he records all the goings on. His family of pets is growing and includes Dogs, Cats, Pigs and Ducks. Each one of them he christens with a meaningful name along with a surname explaining their linage. His favorite is Pantaleao, who follows and embarrasses him and climbs into his bed on cold nights. His family has a high turnover of cooks and bearers with Gabru the head cook providing much joy and stability.
