Congratulations to Princess Anne's daughter, Zara and her husband Mike Tindall, on the birth of their daughter.
As I calculate it, the score is now even:
Princess Anne has three (3) grand-daughters...
The Red Cardinals have three (3) grand-sons..
Whose move next?
and Michelle Obama turned a radiant 50!
Michelle has been rather quieter on the fashion front over the past year...
However, her lovely red ballgown from the 2013 Presidential Inauguration, has just been put on show at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington.
Defying the continuing insane heatwave, Mr Cardinal and I sallied forth to visit my Dad at the Old Folks Home. Dad loves shopping, and the kind carers regularly take him to a local flea market.
This is how he is decorating his room..
Every time we go there is another little birdie..
So that's where she gets it from, you might be thinking.
And you would be right!
Dad's favourite treat.. Cappuccino!!
The Red Cardinal Garden of Neglect has all but given up.
However, I found a few of these old stalwarts bravely putting on a little show.
Mother Nature perseveres..
Expecting 39 deg.C hereabouts tomorrow..
I may spend most of the day in a cool Shopping Mall.
Have a good week
