Stamps rested for a few days and enjoyed the views from our garden, and the sitting among the colourful primula flowers in the sunshine.
and he also enjoyed sitting with our two boy cats in the hidden garden. On the left he is sitting with Rappy, and on the right with Rappy and Jet.
Today, Saturday, we went to Malton Market and Stamps met up with the Market Manager Dave, and with two of the regulars there, Keith who has the Tea Wagon and Eleanor who has the yarn and jewellry stand.
While walking through the market a little spaniel pup became very excited on seeing Stamps and wanted to make friends, Jim patted her on the head and scratched under her chin but unfortunately her owner got rather annoyed with the pup and dragged her away shouting at the poor little dog.

We have enjoyed having Stamps stay with us, and apart from his mishap trying to use the steel boule as a football, I think he has enjoyed his stay with us too.
