Griff's logic about the jigsaw puzzle gift is as follows, "you eat until you are fit only for forty winks and, if you awake in adequate time before the next meal, too heavy to walk, you play with the jigsaw." He promises a more personal gift next time.
He's enjoyed singing in the choir. His middle age is approaching meaning he can usually only manage one helping of dinner and a puff on the pipe, instead of two helpings.
He wishes her a Merry Christmas.
