The sun (shine) and it was a beautiful evening, so,I (open) the back door. Then the telephone (ring). I (go) to answer it and when I (come)back the ham wasn't on the table. I (look) out of the window. A cat (sit) on my garden wall and it (eat) my ham. What (can) I do? I (fill) a pan with water and I went quietly outside.
