That smile of hers, so warm and friendly, suddenly gave him the courage he needed, and he said, "Mrs wifey, please will you marry me?"
"Why, Mr Adam!" she cried. "I didn't think you'd ever get round to asking me! Of course I'll marry you!"

Mr Adam got rid of his teacup and the two of them stood up and embraced warmly in the middle of the room.

"It's all due to Alfie," Mrs wifey said, slightly breathless.
" Good old Alfie," Mr Adam said. "We'll keep him for ever."
The next afternoon, Mr Adam took all his other tortoises back to the pet-shops and said they could have them for nothing. Then he cleaned up his living-room, leaving not a leaf of cabbage nor lettuce nor a trace of tortoise.

P.S. I expect you are wondering what happened to little Alfie, the first of them all. Well, he was bought a week later from one of the pet-shops by a small girl called Roberta Squibb, and he settled in down in Roberta's garden. Every day she fed him lettuce and tomato slices and crispy celery (but he seemed to prefer the dandies) and in the winters he hibernated in a box of dried leaves in the tool shed.

That was a long time ago. Roberta has grown up and is now married and has two children of her own.She lives in another house, but Alfie is still with her, still the much-loved family pet, and Roberta reckons that by now he must be about thirty years old.

And now we can open the thread up for comments by those brave few who've made it to THE END.
Thanks to all those who've viewed it here and in the Cold Dark Room.
And thanks to all those who helped out in the photos or helped take them.
Most of all thanks to my dear wifey without whom this would not have been possible.
And lots of thanks to Tidgy, the teapot and, of course, Alfie.
