The Tale of Persian Jim – Ink and Watercolour Pencils
Persian Jim was invented by my eldest son, John, in 1987 when he was nine years old. PJ could be described as a very unkempt, meddling, moralising moggie who spent his time putting the world to rights instead of grooming himself. We used to sit and write wee bits of poetry describing his adventures, the epic being The Tale of Persian Jim. In it, PJ considers that humans should stop discarding and wasting so much food perhaps eating “less” food instead. John came up with this unintended and humorous last line in one of the verses. We still tease him about this. PS He says that I don’t have the nerve to post this. O Ye of little faith!
