a The Transit Lounge: Oh Morty!

Back in the Day: I had a quarter life crisis, headed to Osaka, Japan for the unknown–only to discover that a passport plane ride are not necessarily a ticket to escape. Some Years Later: Settled back in Oz, the man of my dreams ended up in Tokyo for work–which is how a passport and plane ride showed me home is where the heart is. And Now: Well as luck would have it, we are about to embark on Japan Mark 3, with a baby in tow and another on the way...

Oh Morty!

Hmm...It seems Gwynnie and her rockstar hubby Coldplay frontman Chris Martin are at it again.
Child number 2, a boy, has been named Mortimer.
I used to collect these lego type things when I was growing up, called Fabuland. Does anybody remember that? I think they stopped making it in the mid 80s. Anyway, Mortimer, as shown to the left of your screen, was a mouse and I think his story was that he worked on a boat. If I remember correctly, he even came with fishing gear. Anyway, I never liked Mortimer much. Compared to the other characters' lives he was kinda boring and I always made sure he fell overboard. With that kind of name, he sounds like he has one foot in the grave already.
What kind of a start in life is that for a newborn?

I have your Fabuland at Rye. I think Morty has different clothes on though. I don't like the goat. prefer the Hippo and Elephant.

I think the Hippo is Hannah and the elephant is Edward. I liked the bulldog police chief.

There is a different mouse with a yellow top and red legs - maximillian. He had a fast car and had it going on.
