What was that I hear you ask? Well Lippe came to stay with us, like my person his trip to the US was delayed so they already had lots in common, in his case it was delayed by the ash cloud though not illness. Well because we were all at home and he was waiting for flights to resume we were lucky enough to have his presence in our home for more than 2 weeks. As soon as Lippe arrived from Jazzy's house we know that we were going to have a fantastic time with him, he had hardly got through the door before I gave him one of my special big Kolo HUGS! and he hugged me right back.
Lippe wasted no time in making himself at home, he inspected the plants in the garden and then rushed up to the kitchen for a cup of his beloved tea with me and Leroy and a Thornton's chocolate and everyone who has ever had a Thornton's chocolate will agree that he has great taste.
Anyone who hasn't been following Lippe's adventures should visit My friend @schnille's blog http://mookiepig.blogspot.com/ where Mookie has been recounting all of Lippe's adventures with his various hosts and to see more of my adventures with Lippe you can see my Twitpic pictures. We had a great time with Lippe and found out lots about him, who would have thought he was such a keen gardener and climber?
He climbed all the way up this chimney pot to smell the flowers in there little did we know what well developed climbing skills Lippe would demonstrate in climbing trees and sitting on our 4th floor balcony, not just the balcony but the edge of the wall around the balcony. Then there were Lippe's legendary eating skills, pizza, ice cream, anything you care to name Lippe will eat it even the giant hot dog. Have a loot at Lippes adventures here on the Isle of Wight at Twitpic http://twitpic.com/photos/Kolo_Martin. Well we didn't expect to be here in England in mid April but if we hadn't been we would never have had the chance to meet Lippe. Today we all feel a little sad that he has left us but we are so happy that he came to visit and hope he will feel that there is more to see on our island so that he will come back one day because we have lots more to show him.
So, yes you don't always get what you expect in life and that can be disappointing but sometimes you get something great that you didn't expect and that is wonderful.!
