Two Needing Homes…..

kit-01 kit02These two kittens need a home or homes. They are both boys who are lovely and tame and friendly. They have been raised by hand since their mummy disappeared when they were 4 weeks old (when the photos were taken), so they are especially affectionate. They are now 8 weeks old and totally gorgeous. They will be wonderful purry companions. To come and see them,

please ring 665 415 901. They are between Velez Malaga and Vinuela (no track).



Jumping the Gun !

A Report in the Spanish Press(Think Spain) dated 15th September states Holiday Makers and Tourists arriving at Malaga Airport has seen them standing in Line at Non-European Passport Desks only to be turned away an re-directed to The European Passport Only Channel.    You couldn`t make it up.

If friends/relatives are visiting you, tell them not to follow the sheep getting off the plane but go to the right channel.       After all, until/whenever UK leave the European Union, we, the British. are still Europeans.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
