Now THAT'S my kind of holiday. Eat, sleep, Eat, sleep.....and so on. Those don't look like the foodables that my PUs eat but I would surely like to gulp them down. Mom would nibble to make sure she liked them before she'd gulp, although the bananas in a pancake got her droolin'.

Enjoy your fantastic fun holiday and I will try to find time to take a peek at those earlier posts that I missed.

Big Brown (((HUGS))) to my two beautiful Malaysian ladiez and to your Mum too!!!!

Woofs and slobbers,
Chester ;0=)
