Some of us who are getting on a bit will remember Albert Ramsbottom and his difficulties with the lion. I decided that the little lad should have a life and have written several pieces in the manner of Albert's creator, Marriott Edgar. They go down well at the groups Free Spirit Writers visit and entertain. In order to write about Albert in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, sometimes Albert is the original Albert, and sometimes he is Albert's grandson, also called Albert. You have to use your imagination to work out which one's which.
