What's in a name .. ? and baby ducklings
A visit to the guinea pig house in the afternoon and Agnes was nursing 'Ginze.'
A big discussion opened up between Agnes, Harvey and Finn about her name.
Finn asked me, 'danella how do you say this guinea pigs name?'
It's spelt 'Ginze'.
I told him, 'Well Finn, some people say 'Ginze' (like the 'g' sound for goat) and others say, Ginze (like the 'j' sound in jump). I call her 'Jinze'.'
Finn replied, 'So do I' and Harvey joined in and said, 'I do to'.
Agnes paused for a moment, looked at her furry friend, lifted her head and with all the love in her heart said, 'Well I'm going to call her Belle.'
The last little creatures we saw today were three very new baby ducklings. So sweet and golden yellow ...
