'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

Me-now-views is the weekly 'less speak more peek' page where I share some of my background through pictures only.


A selection of shots of the darling "J's"- Jade Dog was always keen to have her photograph taken.  I swear she was a vaudeville star in a previous life!  
Jasper Cat just didn't care...

  3. Adorable, both of them, but the first picture of Jasper is SO precious. "Now? Before I'm out of bed?"

    Wish I had some photos of Lindy as a puppy, but of course that doesn't happen when you adopt an adult animal.
    We still call her "baby puppy" anyway.
