Free to good home ...

This morning there was a loud knock at the door. Upon opening aforementioned door, this is what I found.Quel surprise! I called Dunc to 'come and have a look at this'. We both stood agog. Before you think we are 1. running some kind of baby racket 2. Live in a converted church or 3. Run a workhouse and feed children gruel before sending them off to make carpets in dark factories or 4. Are looking to expand our brood (cough, splutter, guffaw) ... this is my beautiful nephew... and hiding around the front of my house was his mother, my youngest sister... and in my family we LOVE surprises. Giving and getting... and this got me a doozy ... she's here for A WHOLE WEEK. Grand. Arlo welcomed his cousin in the best way he knows how ... STACKS ON!!!!!!!!
