    Wow, congratulations, Antony. I love your posts and in dark days they have cheered me up. Because of my autism I don’t go out much for fun, so it’s nice to see all the lovely things you do.
    The post about gay animals reminded me of the lionesses who have manes. Have you heard of that? They could be called transgender. It’s fascinating.
    Be safe and big hugs, Andrea xx

      Hi Andrea,

      Thank you for the kind comment. I’m glad my blog posts bring some light in the dark days we are living through at the moment.

      I’ve never heard of lionesses that have manes before. Could they be ligers? A Liger is a cross between a Lion and a Tiger.

      You keep safe, big hugs, A x
