the big guy and i

here i am taking a stroll in the park with the big guy...

Big Guy
in case you wondered, the big guy is not brian (although i can see why you might have thought that!) but a statue in crystal palace park by david wynne of a(nother) gorilla inspired by one of the london zoo's most famous (but now long gone) inmates – guy...

pet peeve

i'm a bit miffed at the moment: firstly because brian is always so busy i never get a chance to get on the computer and do a bit of blogging; and, to make matters worse, he and david swanned off to oxford last friday and left me behind!

in an attempt to make up for the disappointment of missing out on my annual trip to the groves of academe, they bought me back a 'pet'...

New Pet

his name's 'cheshire' (which is odd enough and even odder when you think he comes from oxford) and he's turned out to be very dull company since in the middle of a conversation he'll suddenly disappear – occasionally (and this is very disturbing) leaving just that cheesy grin behind.
