Hi, let me introduce to you... Steve and Holly!
Steve Mason is one half of the enthusiastic and committed husband and wife team that run the pet shop and veterinary practice above. Holly trained as a vet in a nearby college where she met Steve as he did his animal welfare certificate. Steve had been planning to open his own pet shop and when the two fell in love (awww) they decided to get married and settle in Lego Planet. Steve has all sorts of animals from fish to dogs, cats and even cute bears! Holly looks after Lego Planet's animals, great and small. She runs regular surgeries out of the clinic and will also make house calls if the animal cannot be brought in.
Hi all, good news everybody! After a lot of meetings (and copious Custard Cream Biscuits) with Larry, he agreed to let me have a purpose built photo studio for the bio photos, etc. There was a lot of confusion previously (or perhaps it was concern) because I used to have to take all the shots in the alleyway behind Mick's ARC (scary place).
You can see me taking a few test shots with my Legonon 810-5D camera fitted with a new 4.8mm stud mounted lens, equipped with two 10mW spotlights. I was very quick to have some of my recent images mounted and displayed on the studio wall too. The studio also has interchangeable backdrops, a makeup table and a selection of props. This demonstrates that power of biscuits should not be underestimated!
Rosie Grady is the daughter of Clare & Reg L’ego who used to own the little cafe off the park. When she was a young girl she visited the city to see the Lego museum and whilst there met dad. It was love at first sight. Rosie is my mum. Dad is a truck driver and due to the work is often away for months at a time. She found looking after me and my brother Ted (who you've met at the cafe) quite the handful but when my little sister Sam was coming along the decision was made to come back to Lego Planet.
Although technically the only B&B in Lego Planet, it is still the best place to stay when you visit here. When Grandma Clare & Grandpa Reg won the lottery, they bought a big yacht – The Dolphin – and embarked on a nautical retirement. As we had grown up and left on our own brief adventures at college and the city, she decided to open the B & B so she wasn’t so lonely. It is a fabulous place, clean and well decorated. Lit with state of the art lighting and very comfortable beds – I know first-hand! Breakfast is included in the stay and if you’re willing to eat whatever is made you can join us for dinner too. All in all it’s the best accommodation in town!
Rosie was stood on the steps to her house talking to Leo the postman. 'More bills I'm afraid Rosie.' She just smiled at him, 'Not to worry Leo dear. I've got some visitors coming for the grand opening of the art gallery this weekend. I'm sure it will attract more people once our Larry has covered it in his paper.' She waved at me and Leo did too. That's my mum, always positive. I can see the first of her visitors laden with bags walking down the street. I had better go and help!
In an undisclosed location in the shadier part of the planet a new establishment has just been opened by Mick. Tired of living in a region where other legolians think that their opinions matter, Mick is putting his specialised education in acrylonitrile butadiene styrene recycling to good use. All types of 'Attitude Readjusters' are available, many of which would only need to be used once of course hence the option of hiring. For obvious reasons you cannot hire the dynamite! Bearing in mind the purpose of the shop I would recommend that you do not enter with any kind of attitude, Mick has a less than zero tolerance. On a positive note, he has won 'Strictly Come Shooting' 7 years in a row and also enjoys cake decorating, though that will be another story. So, if you feel like a bit of excitement in your life pop along, only open between midnight and 2am as his day job as a traffic warden takes priority (be careful where you park)!
