    Beautiful capture Eyal – It reminded me of my friends wall hanging..goes like this-
    The gingham dog and calico cat
    Side by side on the mantal sat
    The gingham dog said Bow Wow Wow
    The calico cat said Meow Meow!
    An hour later or so
    The place was littered with gingham and calico!

  • Very funny… Thanks Sal for the poem and the smile….

    As Sally Green says, in the Uk they’re called tortoiseshell.
