Thank you John, Klaus and Jutta for your kind comments and likes. You may know that T.S. Eliot had a book of poems entirely dedicated to cats! Best wishes, Rosa.

It is a lot for a small village. We often see churches that appear to be in the middle of nowhere and wonder if the plague wiped out the whole village. I'm getting better thanks Ian...can't wait to get some energy back! Not as sunny today as it was on Thursday! Cheers, Rosa.
