Introducing a new addition to the forum cactus clan:
I met him yesterday on my way home from work, and was struck by his star quality. So, just like in the song, he came home with me.
I very much wanted to name him after a popular ELO and Violinski man who hasn't yet been honoured with a cactus namesake. But I remembered that Timeblue had bagged the name "Spike De Albuquerque" for future use.
Then again, there's no rule saying one ELO man can't have twospiny namesakes...
So it's hello and nice to meet you from Michael De AlpineCacti.
Thanks, Timeblue, but Mr De AlpineCacti seems quite happy with the name he's got, and I think it suits him. Besides, we've already got Spike Commander the cushion in residence, and you don't want too many Spikes in one household. 🌵
At the moment Michael is sitting on the window sill with Richard, Mik, and Bloom Violin while No Cause For A Llama chats to them. Probably telling them all about his lovely Nieve....again...♥
A thousand apologies for missing the forum debut of Michael de AlpineCacti, not sure how it escaped me but I'm most pleased to welcome him into the spiny brotherhood. What a lovely cushiony shape he is, plainly this is a trick to lure unsuspecting fleshy parts near his prickly bits, classic cactus tactic there
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
