Beginning ~ with a command


 "Come along, come along, everybody."  Mrs. Gallsworthy clapped her hands.  "We haven't booked the hall for the whole week."

Mavis and Dot ~ by Angela Petch, 2018, fiction (England)

Two eccentric ladies form an unlikely friendship.  Mavis and Dot — two colorful, retired ladies — live in Worthington-on-Sea, where there are charity shops galore.  Apart from bargain hunting, they manage to tangle themselves in escapades involving illegal immigrants, night clubs, nude modelling, errant toupees, and more.  And then there’s Mal, the lovable dog nobody else wants.  This story is a gently humorous, often side-splitting, heart-warming snapshot of two memorable characters with past secrets and passions.

This sounds like such a fun read! When I get older I also hope to go on weird adventures with a best friend, shuffling around throughout our retirements! I hope you have a lovely start to the weekend and do drop by my Friday post if you have the time! - Juli @ A Universe in Words
