Sigh......

Poor old fat cat, didn't pass muster.  So I had to take him apart, disembowel him a little and re-assemble him into a curled up sitting position.
I do hope he proves satisfactory this time round. 
Do you notice the very old album cover he is sitting on?  Many moons ago I bought a record player so that I could dig out all my old vinyl records and listen to them again but the player itself only had a tinny internal speaker that sounded like...well, those old portable record players of my youth.  So I bought some speakers...only to find they only had one jack whereas the player had two holes.  So I bought a splitter jack from good old Amazon and prayed it would do the job and hooray, it did! So now I am re-discovering the joys of Caravan, plus many more, and being amazed that I still know the words to songs I haven't heard in years and years!
Daisy here is nearing completion - hopefully she will be done by the end of the week.  Such a cute looking dog, I am enjoying drawing her.

Cool you managed to make it work. Next time you have a technical question like this, ask me and I find out from my in-house technical wizard. :-) Guess what, I saw Caravan life this summer... LOL

Love the little dog, she looks good already. xoxo

I thought I recognised that album cover! There is nothing like vinyl is there, I'm so glad I kept my collection, so many people dumped their records when CDs came out, but I love my records, and still play them. (Amazing how the words remain in one's memory, I can still sing along with most of Thick as a Brick!)

Sybille,
Wow, Caravan must be ancient by now, it was an old album when I bought it in my teens!
Gretel,
It didn't take much to remind me and I've been singing 'Golf Girl'in my head all day....

Sorry, have to say... Caravan who ?I haven't a clue who they are, I must have led more of a sheltered life than I thought :-) x x x
