There is far more gain in dressing as an ant than I thought . . I wonder if I might be in breach of my Community Order.

@Ronnie 2¢: So long as you don't disturb the ant hills you should be OK Ronnie.

Good evening Curly,
Happy people spread throughout a pleasant atmosphere. A beautiful photo of a relaxed atmosphere. People who can not laugh, should go into the basement. Read my story from Tuesday. Perhaps, it encourages you to laugh. I wish you a lot of fun and health, incl. your family. Dear greetings from Christel
