No. I have not gone and got a massive pretend tattoo & moko. I'm kinda saving that one.

I have bought him a tablet . Let's see how long it takes for him to work out how to use it.

Sure. No disagreement. It was specified because that's where the quake was. It was just a statement of affection for a country and people I know and have spent a lot of time with, at the same time as I live in another country where those very same people are often looked down upon, treated poorly in person and in the media by people who know little to nothing about the place, and where the President calls them criminals and rapists. So I provided a little friendly counterbalance.

Maybe just hop into bed and get out again?

I'm about to hop in but have no intention of getting out again for at least seven hours.

I can't keep track of what time of day it is there, or even what day it is.

This is different to the reports after Harvey and Irma. there were talks of how much money people are going to be making working for double , sometimes triple pay. This is not a charitable way of thinking.

I love the albatross I do.

M'lad Tumanako still has not fledged. Neither has his pal Foster.

It will be soon. Any day now. Then gone for approx 5 years before hopefully returning, against stacked odds, to find a mate .

At night you can hear the penguins too.

Are you getting the needy emails? "SultanofSwing, you have not updated your profile in 8 weeks, 7 days, 5 hours, 32 minutes and 56.98 seconds. Why do you not love me anymore ..."

I flick through from time to time, but the mobile app is cancer these days and it always looks like it's missing posts. Meh.

Until I saw and read your FB updates, I didn't know that 'fledged' was a thing. I thought baby birds were called Fledglings and had no reason to educate myself.
