What had happened to the writer’s bag?
After I had had lunch at a village pub, I looked for my bag. I had left it on a chair beside the door and now it wasn’t there! As I was looking for it, the landlord came in.
‘Did you have a good meal?’he asked.
‘Yes, thank you, ’I answered, ‘but I can’t pay the bill . I haven’t got my bag. ’
The landlord smiled and immediately went out. In a few minutes he returned with my bag and gave it back to me.
‘I’m very sorry, ’he said. ‘My dog had taken it into the garden. He often does this!’
