    Man made Animals. C'mon, add yours?

    Yesterday at Town my brother discovered a very irresistible fluffy bird. Scroll down to see, a masterpiece of nature:smile:
    I decided i needed the very rare bird and now it is the very unobtrusive and very entertaining pet on my desk.

    Thought you may get a smile out of it just like i do everytime i look at it:biggrin:

    This morning as I was counting sheep I encountered a very rare type. I've been thinking this sheep would be very economical.

    Have you got any rare animals to share?

    Brady, this sheep spotting of yours is a good omen! The waters must be receding from around your place.:thumbup:

    Is there a flock nearby?:biggrin:

    I can't say that he's rare.

    I've known him for some years, he was my late Mother's, he's mine now, at least he's easy to look after and he's house trained (most important) :smile:

    Back when I was 11 I made myself a little man. Mum showed me how to use the sewing machine and away i went. I made everything from the hair down to the shoes and trendy glasses! With mum's coaching of course.


    Grandpa loves Mu-43.com, and he's browsing the forum right now.

    Brady, Grandpa seems to be living in a different era, apart that is from his laptop :smile:, an interesting and well planned diorama.

    I guess Grandpa's Box Brownie is the most advanced technology on show, apart from his laptop that is, he's going to need a darkroom and a scanner now :smile:

    No matter how much grass the goat has in the paddock I always find it in the garden eating exotic plants.
