Biography of Humphrey

For quite a few years Humphrey was put away in a dark and dusty attick in an English semidetached.

This was not what he had imagined when he lay in the craddle next to his sister, but all the same - that was his life for a long time.

So when he finally got out he licked the light and the sun - and he never got into the house until the sun disapeared behind the green hills.

This are some years ago and more or less he has caught up on the need for sunlight, allthough he still sits in the front of the cabinet.

And to protect him a little from the sun he always wears his tricot.
