There were never enough prison guards, there never would be, so they spent most of their time banged up in their cell, just the two of them, roommates by chance, friends by choice.

They read a lot (Zane Grey, Elmore Leonard) and from time to time spoke a lot.

They discussed many things including sealing wax and cabbages and kings, but mainly about snow, Walrus because he loved skiing (he had been a contender for the Olympics), and Carpenter because he once killed a man and it was the blood in the snow that gave him up.

Different strokes for different folks.

  1. Dear Computer Prinsloo,

    Long time no see. 😀 Did they ever figure out why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings? Strange duo, the Walrus and the Carpenter.

    Did they shuck a lot of oysters as they talked of cabbage and kings?

    They locked him up for skiing? Murder, yeah, no problem. But for skiing? That’s harsh.

    It’s all about making it work, isn’t it?

I'd love to read what you think ...
