All the things in our house that we can't bear to, but
which have no current use, are kept in the spare bedroom. Every spring I plan tothe room so that when visitors from faraway places arrive
home unexpectedly I can offer tothemfor the night.
I never seem toit. It doesn't seem to matter; we still have
a lot of visitors. Wemy parentsnearly every Sunday; friends and
neighbours oftenat any hour of the day and night, and all the cats in the neighbourhoodour
garden on their way to explore the rubbish dump at the end of the street.
Can anyonea system for making sure
there is always enough food and drink in the house to refresh our guests?
