OF US TOGETHER - AS THINGS SHOULD BE!
Tiisi, Flash and Faris
the last website update I intimated that I was handing the responsibity
for updates on life at Cranstal over to our latest addition and that
was truly my intention at the time.
something of such magnitude has occurred that a personage as immature
as Noor is most definitely not equipped to cope with reporting both

TO OUR GOLDEN BOY
have lost Mr Flash. None of us can believe that he is no longer part
of our lives. Tiisi is bereft as once Shala had left us she became

little Noor now has no-one to ‘speak Swedish’ to her
at times of crisis (normally of her own making of course!).

the middle of the room – watching everything rather uncertainly

his arrival Chez Cranstal but within a few hours it did not matter.
He promptly became a Cranstal very much under the sheltering wing
of his grandmother Shala whom he adored from the moment he met her.
It was mutual. And as in all fairy tales featuring a young and golden
prince we all lived happily ever after……………………….
years later - one January lunchtime - Mr Flash and Mr Faris went
off out into the paddock as they did every day for some ‘man
time’ together. This was when they ran
