Oh, oh, I am not popular with number 24. His name is Janco. He was excited to appear, his bits and pieces set out on the table. As he came together he knew something was going wrong but I think he just hoped I would fix him. As I painted his face I could see he was looking rather sad. “Poor Janco, what is your problem?” I gave him a lovely tall hat, but he didn’t smile, a little collar and a beautiful frottage suit, drew some nice button down his front…still no smiles, he even shed a flower tear. I gave him a nice blue background with happy ploshes then glued him on…oh dear…he was too long, he didn’t fit, he knew it was going to happen, I was too busy playing to see. Never mind I can cut his legs off, Oh,no, that is soooo cruel, I know fold them up! Poor Janco was very unhappy with me so he packed his belongings, picked up his favourite vase of flowers, his skittles and of course Bulu the bear. Even Bulu was shocked at what I had done. “Janco has never, ever had his legs folded up…not ever!” said Bulu.
I felt guilty but that was it, done, finished. I gave him a box of tissues, apologised, gave him a beautiful yellow moon, even gave him a nice pom pom on top of his hat and let him be. I am sorry Janco but I think you a cute with your legs folded. What does everyone else think? Am I really that cruel?

Nia and Donna both own lovely cats and of course Turkey is well known for their beautiful cats. It has rubbed off on me as when I was at my friends house I suddenly noticed their cat (been going there for years). Not sure if it was the new camera addiction or the influence of Princess and Habibi but I took photos of ‘Cindy’. Here she is:
She did lots of posing, so I will post some more another time along with some of her friends in the garden.
Cheers to everyone – yes I am using red.
