About Little Sophie again, our neighbour's youngest girl. A most delightful and spirited child who delights in beating me at boardgames, cards etc. Every now and then I introduce her to another new game only to suffer more defeats. She keeps asking me to teach her backgammon but I very, very rarely lose at this......I'm dreading it, another defeat is staring me in the face :D:D

Best wishes to all who enter here and very best wishes to those who comment.

Alas my friend....Ian will never recover; at least the acceleration of his condition is relatively slow, so we hope to have him with us for a few more years. Thank-you my dear friend for your thoughts anyway........I will get around UF on 'visits' and post again when time permits. Take care of you and a safe journey back home to India when that moment arrives. My very best wishes to you as always Avi.......

I must remember that....'best of teachers' that's priceless.....Bob's going to get that with both barrels on my next defeat (sometime tomorrow, I think). Bob and Brian with parents Sarah and Adam are spending Christmas Day with us this year and Mum Sarah has warned me that Bob (angelic little Sophie) has got some diabolical schemes up her sleeve with the target being me......HELP!

Thank-you my dear friend Doyle. All the best

Very nice! I like the lighting, the background and her expression. I find it strange though, that the light is so soft looking at the catchlight in her eye. I don't get the title.
