Home visit: Remy


Despite this day’s sluggishness, we ventured out for an appointment. We visited Remy the one-eyed old boy , aka Toby, and his family. Thankfully, the weather held. It was an enjoyable visit and a great chance to know Toby’s family better – I could barely remember who was whom that first time!

This is the old boy himself. Looking good and as characteristically calm.

Old habits die hard: Waiting for a chance to slip into the kitchen. (He was later found on kitchen premises and he had an accomplice – Milky)
