A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

Watching the game . This is Molly, a kitten we temporarily adopted from the SPCA animal shelter. She was one of three amazing kittens who gave us a huge amount of pleasure while we had them. It was very hard to give them back when it was time for them to go to their permanent homes. . I want to inform my loyal readers here too that as from today I am taking a 'blog holiday' for a while. Thanks for your following and support. I hope to return later. - Dave .

A local pilot with his tiger moth aeroplane with 'smoke' gave a short aerobatic display recently at a microlight meeting. As we live nearby I was able to get this photo.

Squirrel Resting.
This came to me today as part of an e-mail, funny photos. I decided to share it here.

The Castle, Tirau
The castle above is really a Doll and Toy Museum. It sits on a hill overlooking the southern approach to Tirau township in the Waikato, south of Hamilton. The second picture shows a scene with the dolls arranged to make up a setting; ladies busy in a kitchen with the baby playing on the floor. There are many such sets with dolls representing a whole range of activities inside the Castle.
Jill, my wife, and I have visited the Castle at least three times and recommend this for anyone visiting Tirau, New Zealand. .

Stuffed Toy.
Jill likes stuffed toys. This is some sort of cat.
I sometimes take a liking to some of the stuffed toys as they often have amusing expressions, which says a lot for skills of the makers of the stuffed toys.
I remember as a kid we were taught at school how to make these, but I don't recall ever being very successful. Somehow I think I might try again one day though.
