    Yes, I understand this appellation. Little Willie, athirst for gore, nailed his peanuts to the floor. Mother said with humour quaint, ‘Willie, don’t! You’ll mar the paint.’ He is a wee sweetheart.

  • LOL,thanks.

    The original line was ‘nailed the baby to the floor….’ Makes Mother’s rejoinder more understandable, eh?

  • Hmm,I prefer the revised edition

    This is so cute and the staments and poem by S. are fantaxtic. I am still laughing.

  • I know,she is a card,and full of verbiage of the best sort.

    Excellent capture, I too use the Tamron. Unusual colouring on his tail and ears.
