some friends kidnapped me and took me out for an early Birthday dinner. They wouldn't let me take a picture of them so all I got was this picture of my soup. I think it had potato, some kind of cheese and lager in it...very tasty!

Can you find the head? :)

We bought him a bigger bed but he still loves to squeeze into this one.  Sometimes his whole body hangs off it and only his back legs are on it.
