They will never believe we are Aleksandr and Sergei unless we act even more like meerkats, you know! Fake Sergei, bring me smoking jacket!!

I really really love the pink spot on "Sergei"’s nose :-P

    A superb capture! ~ Judy

  • Hahaha, yeah :-)

    A colleague got someone to make a Christmas card with Aleksandr in the jacuzzi and it said “Sergei, Baubles!” I thought it was very clever :-P

    I do love otters more tbh but they were acting JUST like meerkats as it got to their lunchtime :-P
