Wonderful Wednesday!

Gen-Chan: Well it was our Tuesday that was wonderful, but who's counting, right?

It's always nice to have friends drop in for a cup of tea, but when the friends are dropping in from Melbourne, Australia, it's a real cause for celebration! Our long-time blogging friends may remember Ms. S and Mr. S, our very first house-sitters who started looking after The Poupounette Gang well before I was born. In fact, the first time they house-sat, it was just Tommy, who was nine months old, and Sen-Chan! Since then, they have been true friends of the Gang over the years. It was Mr. S who taught Tommy to bring the ball back when it's thrown. And Ms. S looked after our sweet Yuu-Chan with such tender loving care when he was ill.

So, they were in the midst of a whirlwind trip to Italy and France but found the time to drop in for a cuppa to catch up on us!

The Beebs, whom they have known since he was knee-high to a grasshopper, was the first to investigate (or is he reading that newspaper article that says "Boys"?)

Of course, he couldn't resists a big cuddle from Ms. S!

I decided to try out Ms. S's lap and it was most welcoming!

The others were around too but #1 didn't manage to get any more pics. Tommy never stops moving when he is excited, and the girls are more discrete about coming forward. Still, we all really enjoyed seeing our faraway friends! They are still talking about maybe moving to France for good, so we are crossing our paws!

  14. That is so awesome! My mom and dad just got back from abandoning us and they went to Melbourne Australia. They said if it weren't for the horrible quarantine of pets, they'd be tempted to move us all there! Whoa.
