I gotta tell this story.

I'm sitting in the kitchen playing guitar, doing my best to ignore whatever it is the fellas are doing behind me.

I love the talking. Nicola, my Diva is a Lynwood and the talking is almost shouting at me, long wooooooos wooooooos with a loud whoooop at the end and all the time she is either walking backwards or sitting with her head in the air and if I pretend to talk back she goes on longer like she is having a conversation with you. Her son does it to his owners and walks backwards and they follow and he leads them out into the garden to play, cheeky devil.
