The north and the south faces of the tower carry the decoration of two former Hong Kong governors coats-of-arms. A relatively large memorial cross which was unveiled in memory of the fallen soldiers of the First World War can be seen next to the cathedral.

This richly constructed major centre of Hong Kongs Anglican Christianity is open to the public daily from 7am to 6pm.

Did someone say Ham?

Did someone say Ham?

When I got home from work today, I went into the bedroom and found the little guys playing with some of dust bunnies in corner near my comic book boxes. I startled them as I came rushing into the bedroom. They get a little jumpy when I do things like that. Being so small and all they can easily be squished.

Anyway I told them how much you all loved their photo from yesterday. They were wondering what I was talking about so I explained. You have to understand, although they tend to get into alot of things, turning on the computer and finding their way to my account, etc. Is not so easy. They did not smile or say anything. Just bounced around the the floors. "Is that it?" you might be wondering. Of course. They are Gummy Bears. They cannot talk silly. 😛

I told them how I wanted to take some more candid photos of them and before I could say more, they all go rushing on over to the dresser and start climbing it. Well as you can see for yourself, they decided to climb all over the Eiffel Tower that sits on the dresser. I told them to be careful and what do you know. They ignored me. Again… and look what happens. The poor little Red one got his foot stuff and is now hanging upside down. I stopped shooting and had to help him out.
