I think I've fallen in love with Bertie (sorry girls, you are still wonderful and snuggleworthy too!)

Glad to hear the op went okay, and that your mum's shoulder is not playing up too much. My surgery this summer meant that I had a bit of a nightmare battling with the whole "don't do too much" situation. Lots of hugs for you all!

White front tootsies, Posy! She is also a bit podgier than Poppy! Actually, they both look as though they've been down the coal mines. I think the slightly cooler weather has made their grey tips and bits spread and darken!

Bertie is planning on being boss-pig, Flo the ever-sage mother-in-law, Poppy his floosie-type-wife, Posy his bit of fun-sister-type, and Pansy his sort of great-aunt-someone, the kind of someone you would go to when you need a little tlc, or a kindly pat on the head top!

Bertie would like you all to know he is pretty much fed up with everything at present. He is eating though so it can't be all bad!

Posy is beautiful! Other than Bertie, who is your bossiest? I'm curious--often a sow ends up being boss pig.

Thank you, auntie JaneDoe, I am rather beautiful, I agree! We are not a bossy lot, unlike a certain Great, great aunt Mavis Mittens - or so we've been told!

We are all feeling very sad today. A very good friend to many has left us, and while we are only too grateful to have known and loved her, and we know she is now free from pain, we miss her already.

Pansy was a especially fond of BugsMom.

This is just for you, Auntie Joan -

Seeing as it's National Poetry Day here in the UK we have all been absorbed in (or rather on) our poetry books!

Here's Flo pontificating on the Owl and the Pussycat!

Image

Young Bertie is too small to read so his Daddy read to him from our favourite tome.

Image

We think he liked it!

Image

And here's Pansy using her not inconsiderable weight to keep a pile of books in their place!

If you can pop back later we may honour you with another photo, and also we have an exciting announcement to announce!

I agree, that would make a beautiful calendar picture. I love those bookends!

That is fabulous! Definitely calendar worthy! I do have a picture of yours picked out but maybe we should consider this one? Or at least slip it in somewhere?

Looking forward to your meeting with VIP Poppycorn!

Haha! Thank you!I wish I'd used the proper camera now. I grabbed my phone camera before they, and Ian, ran away in fright!

Terrific picture. I LOVE it.

Going to have to look for a copy of The Hums of Pooh.

Himi twin bookends are perfect for any calendar.

Make sure to check for any Bertie-sized lumps in Poppcorn's pockets when she leaves!

Yes, I would definitely do a headcount before Poppycorn is allowed to drive away! (not that we could blame poppycorn at all)

Due to having to fit in such a lot of cuddles we totally forgot to take photos!

We were all security tagged to ensure poppycorn couldn't accidentally sneak off with one of us in her pocket!

Well, the important thing is that you were not whisked off to places unknown!

p.s. any chance you could send a copy of the bookend guinea pigs to test out for the calendar?

Your admirers have spoken!
