  1. I love the telegraph or telephone line in the back ground. All of the details are charming. The window of the house hints at a tidy home with fresh baked bread. The goats horns are so big but his eyesshow the affection his has for his friends.

    1. Billy Whiskers Junior is every bit as cute and sweet as his Father – a bit naughty as goats are. I like this one very much – it is so normal with such nice details!

    1. It is a water tower – I like that too! Nobody has commented on how the little girl looks – everything else is sort of “normal,” but she is a bit strange.

  2. So the chums were dog, cat and goat and, when they travelled on, they hitched a ride on the train, I suppose? Love the bucket underneath the downpipe, ready to collect rain water from the roof.

    1. You have figured out the three chums – you are so careful! Thanks your your attention and for your comments – nice! There are many lovely details in this illustration – so much talent went into this.
