    An impressive list! I suggest you put a link to this post in the sidebar.
    I am still hoping for a link to something which gives a brief outline of who’s who in your zoo. Name, age, sex (if not obvious), occupation and main characteristics.

      Eish…not sure how to do the sidebar thing?
      I’m working on Gertruida’s profile, maybe will post it over the weekend. Then, as an ongoing project, I’ll tackle the characters one by one. However, a synopsis remains a good idea..I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for reading.
