Well, I'm taking Eugenie out to tea this afternoon and so I'm getting in training. Herein you will receive a redneck's lesson on appropriate teacup etiquette. You will surely find this most helpful on those occasions when you happen to be dining out in Ritzy company.

Oh, and there's a song in there somewhere too...a lovely tune that featured in the film 'Monkey Business'. Perhaps not the most politically correct song for an insulin dependent diabetic to be trumpeting!!! In any case, Eugenie is sweet enough for this ol' cat. :old:

Thanks for watching everyone, blessings :)

I smiled from the beginning till the end. If you could sing and play your way through every day, there would be no worries ever.

That is one sweet song, I love the personal touches you gave it mate, really nicely played.

Cheers Cam. I think this song is one of the sweetest discoveries of the year so far for me. I'm gone on it. :)
