Simply Grand One Man Band "Uno" today!

Uno is growing like a weed, but is balking at eating on his own, as he wants to stay at the "milk bar" a bit longer! Maybe I'll wait until next week when I return from NY to spice up his "gruel" a bit with some extra special goodies, so he might find it more appealing!

Uno is 4 weeks old!

The birthday boy again!
