Hi Majeekahead,

This M 'Lionel Fortesue' must have some lomarifolia or media in it.
I am unfamiliar with this one, but so many new hybrids have come along.

In your profile you mention the word "chuffed." That too I am umfamiliar with. I also understand your work profile.

Having to deal with a boyfriend and a monkey must take a lot out of you. Is it a chimpanzee? How do people react to your monkey? I once had a client and he had rats. They always rode on his shoulder. Many people had a problem with that. Actually they were very good little pets.

Hi holly, the trellis is brown and the fence is green, not sure i am brave enough for purple, - maybe just the picture colour? LOL Oh Skyline, bless ya, 'chuffed' means very happy with, and as for the monkey, - well the boyfriend, was some sort of lazy, messy, grumpy baboon actually, that farted a lot and scratched his privates, lol - and he is now 'ex', as for the monkey mentioned, well reffering to my 3 1/3 year old little girl, she does take after her father in some ways, but luckly has her mothers traits in most! - but yes manages to keep me busy most of the time, i think a real monkey would be far easier to look after! lol

OOPS, I just learned not to check a photo while leaving a comment. Somehow it disappears on the return.

The word chuffed or chuffles? What is the origin of it CH -- chuckles.

As to your other comment -- I understand. Men can be that way sometimes. Never me! I cut my claws every month and do trim the whiskers. Lydia, my employer still chides me on much. So I gather I have a way to go. She did give me a haircut a few months ago. Can't even remember what the occasion was.

I checked on your picture of her. Two very beautiful gals.

lol no 'chuffed' short for 'chuffed to bits' which is an expression over here that means, really happy with - suprised you have'nt herd that one before. and to be honest, Brookes dad and i actually get on ok now that we don't live together, dispite his anoying ways as a boyfriend, i have to admit he is a good dad to Brooke, and at the end of day that's the most important thing, so thankfully we are able to work together as her parents insuring that she has a stable upbringing, which i am 'chuffed' with lol
