I am sure that ewe'll agree that what follows below is a visual treat.

I went for a walk with my boy...and I decided that ewe would all like to see two of the post boxes we walked past !

Yes indeed, even whilst spending some (American accent mode) "Quality Time" with the offspring I was still thinking about my chums here.


ENJOY !

On my morning/evening walk (20 minutes each way), I see 8 or 9 post boxes. Do I win a prize?
