Wrong number

Wednesday 31st October 2012
Autumn on the fells
I answered the telephone in my usual way: "Hello...Bellingham Rectory".  The voice said "Do you do red-eyed tree frogs?"  After repeating himself once, the caller realised that I was puzzled.  So he asked "Do you sell amphibians?"  In the current weather we are all amphibians and I was reluctant to say he had the wrong number as I like to think that the Church will try to give any help that people request.  But this time I had to admit myself beaten.
