Today marks two important birthdays for me

The first is that of my dear and very loved friend up in Sydney, the Goanna. I have known her since, I think, 1971; and have loved her from about a fortnight after I met her. Goanna is forthright, honest, amusing and VERY good at her chosen profession (which she keeps saying she’s not going to do any more …).

The second is that of Mr B. Bettong, NWT*, who turns the magnificent age of 1 ! (Goanna is a bit older than that.)

“Wot ?”, I hear you cry; “I see no Boodie !”.

Ah, but you have to look closely. In fact, really, really closely … Zoom in on the cat-scratching pole, about half-way up, and there you will see – his whiskers !    :)

But I shall provide a better view, albeit still a little restricted:

wherein can be detected signs of his breakfast. Is he not adorable ?!!
