The Moose, the Gargoyle and the Ogopogo

Look what arrived today from Canada to join Kelly’s menagerie.

Here they are introducing themselves to her “gargoyle” which is ageing gracefully under the maple in the garden.

The moose is one of a pair and the Ogopogo is a miniature interpretation of the creature from  Lake Okanagan in British Columbia.

The Gargoyle has been awaiting Kelly’s return for just on 2 years and he looks pleased to have company.

What Do You Know?

Christmas is fast approaching. This will be my younger granddaughter’s first Christmas. She is nearly walking and I’d say by Christmas there’s a fair chance she’ll be up and running. I guess her sister Eloise will have to arrive at the Christmas tree faster this year to see what the jolly, old fellow has left. I reckon if Caitlin was talking as well by then, her first word would have to be “mine”. Watch out, Eloise!

What Do You Know?

Oh, dear, what do you know?
Young Caitlin’s about to get up and go
On her two, little legs, she’s ready to walk
Why, very soon she could even talk!
She’ll be into everything, I kid you not
And telling us all just what is what!
