Steve is a character and a real people's person. When you visit his art shop in the small shopping center, you are regaled with stories about the valley and happenings all down the years. One of Steve's famous paintings of meerkats, shows a Jack Russel standing up exactly like the meerkats.
Muthi. Steve and Estelle's 21 year-old Jack Russell posing exactly like the meerkats in the above painting
On Thursday we visited Steve and Estelle at their home just nestled under Cathkin Peak. Steve took me and Grant (and a visitor who'd just booked into their accommodation) on a quick tour of the caves.

Another cave lower down on Steve's property. They were expecting the Ambassador of Cuba that afternoon
Although we'v "met" Muthi in Steve's shop, this week it was wonderful to see him in his own environment. We were visiting at midday and Muthi, like any self-respecting ageing gentleman of 147 years, was just getting up out of bed!
Returning from viewing the caves, we saw Muthi tottering onto the lawn
As I bent down to pet him, he rolled over for me

HAPPY SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
