My uncle took me on a trip to Italy over the summer. There, I met a mouse one evening on the Rialto bridge. I asked its name.

"Gertrude," it replied.

"Like Stein?" I asked.


Here is Gertrude with her fiddle. She played a song for us for a quarter.

By the way, *deviantetienne evidently came across a cellist rat on the Canal Saint Martin, and was so charmed when he found out he and the rat had the same name that he drew a sketch of the fellow. I would like to tell Gertrude of the rat, as I think she would be charmed, but I don't know when I'll be back to Italy...
