But wait, there's more

Lewis Jaffe, blogger at Confessions of a Bookplate Junkie, is the proud owner of this exquisite meerkat bookplate crafted by British wood engraver Andy English. Andy's site has plenty of examples of his work to make you drool.

The picture reminds me a bit of our place yesterday, when I had the pleasure of three extra kiddies for the day. You'd think with five kids running around it would be a noisy exhausting day. Quite the contrary, it was remarkably quiet - they spent all morning playing hide-and-seek, and were so effective it was practically silent. The afternoon they spent outside building forts, chalk drawing the footpaths and gardening, as it was a stunning Dunedin winter's day. All I had to do was feed them occasionally. Easy.
