Around and about in the last week or so

Cherubs around the fountain, some real and some imagined.

A view from Corrie Street, with the harbour and peninsula way in the distance.

Early morning in the Lower Botanic Garden.

Grandstand at Mosgiel.

Living in this region is such a pleasure. I need lots of air and lots of space.

The Phantom 31: Our baby... a girl?

It's unusual for The Phantom to become overly excited. On those rare occasions, you can be sure it has something to do with Diana.

Now, if he is not merely excited, but overcome with joy, there must be something very special going on.

He has to leave for the jungle the next day, and of course he wants his gorgeous wife to accompany him. He can't wait to tell everyone about their baby.

Diana has big responsibilities in her job at the United Nations, and she can't just drop everything to go with The Phantom. She will have to give the appropriate amount of notice before taking maternity leave.

However, in the midst of all this good news and the making of plans, there is something The Ghost Who Walks has not thought of, and he's in for a shock...

I'm not sure I've ever seen The Phantom look so dismayed!

The Ghost Who Walks is in for even more surprises later on; but, for now, this is just about all he can handle!
