Break the skin of civilization and you find the ape, roaring and red-handed.


While journeying through the magnificent north west coast of Tasmania (the greatest coast in the known universe), we happened upon one of the world's great rail journeys: the Orient Express Don River Railway!

As you can see, Ezra spent a portion of his trip working on his dimples.

The eyes have it in this one. Thanks for the memories. Those boys of yours are the most loving/lovable children I have ever been with.

Kris said...

As one of your two actual children, I take exception to that!

Sue said...

Hahahahahaha....good one, Kris!! Pay that! Poor old Roddy, it's the Alzheimer's...he has forgotten how adorable you and Jason were! Especially you, Kris! I still remember all the cuddles you would give me when I was living at your place! You would sit on my knee all night watching TV with me. And Jase taught me all about cricket that summer I was there...he was so patient with me!!! I will always cherish those times.
Having said that...Ezra is a mighty fine looking boy and looks like an angel!!

Ez is looking breath-takingly gorgeous in this one. His cherubic face, such angelic smile and those gorgeous dimples are going to break a lot of hearts, I guess.
Luv to him and Henry....

My apologies my son. Your mother pointed out that I had forgotten my own sons. I haven't! I however am living in the present and not the past. My comment applies to today, not thirty something years ago. For that, I am extremely sorry. However. Those boys of yours are the most adorable children I have been with in I can't remember how long.
SORRY, for the impression that I have forgotten my own two loving sons. Roddy. Your loving father.

He is a real cuty. And, like Roddy said, the eyes make it special.
Nice to read that you enjoy riding the train. It's great for kids.
We are in Ecuador, planed to go by train, but most routes are canceld. Main transport is by bus now.
Great rail journeys, I suggest: from Istanbul to Teheran (Trans-Asia-Express), from Calicut to Delhi, from Urumqi to Beijing

Sue, he is just a cruel person.

Kris said...

Yamini, Indian hearts?

Kris said...

Roddy (2), BAH!

Kris said...

Carola, are their chickens in the carriages, or does Hollywood lie?

Kris said...

Hallam, I blame the baby Jebus.

Kris said...

Tania, no, that's Ezra, not Jen.
