  1. What a balm for the soul Soppy Sunday is. Wouldn’t it be lovely to wake up an see no 1’s wee face off a morning? Just loved those cute wee coos though I’m not sure about having one that close to my face a la No 7. They might be cute but they attract a lot of flies! No 21 is awfa cute but a wee bit grey looking round the edges. Mainly they are various shades of red/orange though they is a famous albino one that needs to live in captivity forever due to the danger of skin cancer. She’s called Alba but she’s from Borneo not Scotland! She’s a feisty wee one too!

  2. Tris, pic 13 shows Loch Garry with the Rough Bounds of Knoydart beyond wreathed in cloud. It’s a favourite view of mine when travelling north in the western Highlands – I always stop to gaze and marvel.

    1. How observant of you. I don’t know.

      I think this lad is in a zoo in Australia, so it might need an old Australia hand… Quokka, Kangaroo?

      But if Ed or Tatu knows…?
