  9. Lovely with spring spronging over here at the moment, I almost did something similar but for lack of time. From little acorns mighty oak trees grow alright. I think that every time I look at my son!

  17. Hmmmm... I wonder if Bob Dylan was reading that bit from Lewis Carroll before he wrote "My Back Pages"? "Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."

    Great take on the theme!
