Rommel, the desert fox

"Rommel,the Desert Fox" is a volunteer entertainer in the Schoemans' guest lounge most nights.
He's not tame, he's awfully timid, but he can't resist the offer of a plate of savoury meat chunks.
At the sound of a whisper he's off like lightning, but flash lights and camera clicks mean nothing to him.
His girlfriend waits outside and will never come forward, but he never forgets her and every few minutes
he chooses a choice bit and takes it to her.
