Jingle bells Jog Fun Run, Nelson

As a fun run Christmas event, both my daughter Nyle and her husband Shane, entered in the Jingle Bells Jog. Shane jogged and Nyle powerwalked. most people wore some kind of Christmasy articles to make the whole thing more jolly.

They both had a lot of fun, as did all the other participants. It is not often that they can both compete together, in any way at all. That's them with the Santa hats on. After the 5KM jog they rested a few moments, then ran the 5km back to their car.

You Are a Sphynx Cat

Some say you're part monkey, part dog, part child, and part cat.

You're unique and mysterious enough to seem a little otherworldly.

You're so hyper active that you almost literally climb the walls.

You are also devoted and loyal. But you demand a lot of attention in return.

Our new chair.

Soon after we moved into this nice new home we decided to buy ourselves a nice new chair. We specially wanted another lazy-boy type chair as they are so comfortable, but some are so heavy you can't move them around easily, so we saught out a lightweight model that was still very comfortable, and asked the company to order us one in a maroon coloured leather so it would fit in well with our other furnishings. The order was placed, overseas somewhere, and we were told it would take a while to have it made as we wished. We didn't expect it would take more than five months, but it did.

The new chair was delivered and unpacked and placed in position in a nice sunny place. next thing we know our two cats came flying across the room, jumped up on to the seat and settled down. They said "This chair is ours, thankyou." and have made it there own as much as possable ever since.

Big Raisin

We have 2 beautiful cats, Big Raisin is a Maine Coon Cat, or so we have been told. We just know he is a long-haired black cat with personality. He has the bigest fluffiest tail, just like a squirrel tail we think. Raisin and Porsche are very good friends, playing together all day long, with never a cross word between them.
Raisin is now about 16 years old and still going strong, though he is not as active as he used to be and no longer catches birds or mice like he used to.

Porsche, our Siver Blue Burmese cat, is such a happy cat, notice the big smiles. She is all grown up now. This was her favourite chair, but we have moved home and no longer have this old chair so she is still finding good sunny places to sit and dream.
