Getting Over The Day After!

Hi Woofers!

It's us again, ten years and one day old!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Yesterday was a blast, we had loads of treats and nibbles and we were up reading all the good wishes that came in on the Internetty in fact, we had so many nibbles that this morning Holly Chops had the Grumbly Tum!

Maybe next time she won't be such a Piggly!

This morning, as we were getting ready to go out for a walk, Old Two Legs spotted a bright light gliding across the sky, a lot slower than the Airy Plane that normally fly up the Thames.

So, grabbing the camera he took this picture and after zooming in on it, we decided it was a plane!

An OoEfOh or a slow flying Airy Plane?
 It was still dark when we got to the beach but by using a very ISO setting, OTL was able to get a shot of the morning light before the sun got up!

This is number two shot and it is just a blurry as the first but at least you can see the sea!!
Even at lunch time Holly was still complaining about her tummy but the ferrets kept taking the micky and told her she shouldn't have been so greedy!

Mind you, even I didn't fancy a game of chase!

If you want to play chase, then chase your own tail!
Something we noticed, it's half term for the local mini Two Legs, so, there they are, playing on the beach and charging all over the place. Then they spot the ferrets and it's all 'Can I stroke them?' and the normal questions.

No one takes any notice of us, we don't get strokes, we have to sit and wait until they have all finished. To add insult to injury, the ferrets creep up and tell us to 'Get a move on!'

One day!

So that's it today for us.

OTL has been up the ladder clearing the gutters out ready for the winter wind and rain so we are set up for the bad weather!

It looks like we got Doggy Scoff tonight so I can see us doing some serious mugging ahead of us!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

It's our Birthday!

Hello all you Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

We are ten years old, that's Holly and me, Daisy Dog!

Now Holly and I can't really remember being born but we must have been happy!

Today, being a Special Day, Holly and I have made up our very own birthday song, it goes like this,......
Happy Birthday to us,
Let's poo on the bus,
Have a wee on the carpet,
Happy Birthday to us!

After our morning walk which was very dark, in fact so dark that Old Two Legs didn't even take any pictures! Well, we got back home and had a look at the comments from yesterday, only to find that Archie Babe had got all excited and left us a Birthday song! Both Holly and I learnt the song straight away and have been singing it all morning and we even got OTL to tell us to 'Belt Up!'

Archie Babe has managed to wind up OTL without being here!

Good on you Archie!

Now, The Missus passed on an electronic birthday card that shows a range of jungle animals having a birthday party. OK, no problems there, in fact it is rather good, except, you have to click on each animal to make it do something. Well that should be OK but when we clicked on the animals, one by one, they did the action accompanied by a raucous fart!

We LOVED IT!

The ferrets have been singing 'Birthday Songs' as well but we don't speak Ferret, but they assure us that they are both rude and smelly!

Trust a ferret to do that!

We also got a Birthday Message from Google!

We reckon OTL had something to do with this!
Mind you, being famous like wot we are I'm sure that Twittwer, FaceAche and the rest will follow later today!

Lunchtime we were out with Monty and Wendy, sniffing all the sniffs and OTL didn't tell me to keep out of the water!

Mind you, I didn't go in 'cos it looked a bit yucky!

Tempting but not enough and anyway, OTL is looking!
 Never mind, it didn't stop us from having a good sniff and a roll!

After you with the sniff Holly Chops!
Miss May sort of woke up late afternoon and asked to go out for a walk on the football ground
behind our house. She had a walk and several good rolls in the grass but after a while she decided it was just too much and crawled up into OTL's arm for a carry home!

Still, she got her run and a sniff!

We have had a big bowl of chicken, freshly cooked which I must admit, went down like a greasy rat down a drain pipe!

Following that we had the Jumbone Treat and later we even had a teeth cleaning chew!

I didn't eat all mine 'cos I'm saving that for later this evening or even tonight before going to bed!

Well, we have had a super day and a big woofing thank you for all the good wished and we will look forward to next years party!

Bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Another Lazy Day!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

I don't know about you but today has been all sunshine and balmy breezes!

The Missus got up early'ish this morning and she managed to wake everyone up. You know, lights being switched on and off, crashing about in the 'store room' and marching up and down the stairs with her hob nailed wellies!

We were not amused!

It ended up with Old Two Legs getting up a whole ten minutes earlier than normal!

Down on the sea front the sun was still sleeping but we did see the glow in the sky and because there were no clouds it looked gently dramatic, if you know what I mean!

When OTL first got up it was still dark and when he looked out of the bedroom window he could see the Orion star cluster, all lit up like a Christmas tree!

Here comes The Sun, in about half an hour or so!
 We didn't mind 'cos at that time in the morning there were no other woofers around and young Eric could run and play where ever he wanted to without worrying about woofers with big teeth!

Mind you, that is not what happened when we went out again at lunchtime.

Being a Sunday, and sunny and not raining, we had all the tourists marching up and down the sea front. There seemed to be woofers attached to each of the tourists and OTL had to keep his eyes open and be alert for any dangers.

In fact we were all alert, you know Lerts can be just as troublesome as Nargles!

I got all sneaky, you see, OTL was watching all these tourists and strange woofers but he was not keeping his eyes on me and I did a 'Sneaky' on him.

I headed off to the beach and had a quick 'Deep Paddle'. Honest, I was really looking out for these Lerts and it was a good job 'cos we don't want any trouble with Lerts while the ferrets are having a sniff in the grass!

Me, being sort of A Lert!
Back home OTL has been 'Manufacturing' and packing things up ready for the carriers tomorrow. After he had finished, Miss May started rattling on the cage door, that means she wants to go out!

So, leaving us in doors, he took May out over the football field for a run around. Well, May can't really run too far, had a small wander and a roll in the grass, then she has a carry with OTL, then she gets down for another roll and a run, after which she goes back for a carry and then another small run and a roll.

After all that, she stays in OTL's arms and they head back home for a snooze, May that is!

We spent the rest of the afternoon watching the recording of F1 Qualifying, all ready for the race tonight.

I've just seen the food bowl...............Doggy Scoff again!

See you tomorrow and don't forget, we want loads of songs!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Lazy or Wot!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret back with you again!

Well, today has been one of those terribly busy days when we seem to have done nothing in particular and taken a long time doing it!

Our morning walk was dark and just a little chilly, not that Eric worried about that, he stayed cuddled up in Old Two Legs arms for half the walk and ran all the way back to the car stopping only for a wee and a sniff!

All we could see was the lights over Sheerness and the first glow of the sun and it was thinking of getting out of bed!

OTL had to use a very high ISO in the camera to get the picture.

I must ask him one day what an ISO is!

Sheerness by street light!
When we got back home The Missus had already gone off to the village hall so Holly and I headed for the bed for a snooze while OTL got down to shovelling poo out of the ferret cages!

After the chores, he was back onto the computer transferring files from one computer to the other.

Dead boring if you ask me!

Lunchtime walk was better, well at least we could see where we were going!

Holly and I wanted to go down on the beach but OTL said we had to stay away 'cos Holly can't behave herself and after ploughing up the sand with her nose and getting sand in her eyes, she would have to go down to the vet and get eye drops and watch OTL cry as he handed over his credit card!


Looks inviting but not good for Holly's eyes!
 Back home again to some nosh, chicken, freshly cooked this morning. Holly and I ate half each, saving the remainder for later tonight!

OTL had a bite to eat and then we all fell asleep in front of the TV while watching the F1 practice!

Not that it was boring it was just, 'uneventful'!

After watching the recordings OTL went off to the computer again to transfer some more data.

I did say it was boring, right!

So that's it today, busy doing boring things, maybe tomorrow will be better.

I know Monday will be fun 'cos it will be our birthday! Yep! Holly and I will be all of ten years old!

We will be expecting loads of birthday cards and loads of emails saying 'Happy Birthday' and Archie Babe is going to compose a really rude song, just for us!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Something Different!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

As you may have noticed, it's Friday!

Old Two Legs has had a lucky break, he managed to get the computer to do what he wanted it to do without without it falling over and pretending to die!

Mind you, there were moments of 'Re-naming' the computer!

I never knew a computer could have so many names!

This morning was just too dark for photos and the sun hadn't even got out of bed, never mind poking it's nose over the horizon!

Young Eric enjoys the dark, you see he is almost invisible in the dark 'cos his hair is black and very dark brown, so, all we see is a flash of black heading for our legs!

At lunchtime Monty and Wendy were out with us and there was no hiding in the grass and jumping out and shouting 'BOOO'!

Holly was getting all philosophical and questioning the existence of Nargles!

Holly reckons that as we have never seen a Nargle therefore it goes that there are no Nargles. If there are no Nargles then where did the name come from and why is it that so many times we hear everyone mention Nargles and on top of that, how do we know the spelling is correct?

It could be, if they exist, they are called Nargulls and that's the reason why we have never seen one 'cos we have been looking for Nargles!

I really don't do Fillysofficals so I just look interested and nod when she looks at me!

I've been thinking...................!
 Now, while Holly has been doing her Fillysofficals, Wendy and Monty were having fun in the grass. OTL caught Wendy trying to get up the steps and falling back onto her tail!

There's never a ladder around when you need one!
 It was lucky for her that OTL put his hand under her tail and gave her a lift up!

One the football field both ferrets just love a good run on the grass. Providing there are no woofers around, both ferrets think it is all great fun!

Hang on, I've got to get my breath back!
Tomorrow The Missus is up the village hall with the 'Girls' sloshing the glue and glitter. Now normally TM makes a Tea Cake the size of a tea tray and she never brings any home.

Now today she decided to make a sponge cake with cream and jam in the middle, well, that was the plan.

Holly reckons TM has been watching too many of those 'Bake Off' programs, you know the ones that seem to get 'Soggy Bottoms'!

So, determined not to get a soggy bottom, TM wound up the oven so you could melt iron in it!

In goes the sponge mix and off she goes to mess about on her mobile phone.

A little later the smoke alarm goes off and we all rush into the kitchen to view the sponge cake.

You will be pleased to know that there were no soggy bottoms. The tops didn't have any Duck Ponds but rather they looked like burnt out volcano's!

The bottoms were flat and about the same consistency of iron manhole covers!

Tomorrow TM will be taking some Tea Cake up to the hall!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret

It's that Computer Again!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here again!

Us woofers have been benefiting from Old Two Legs reading the Stephen Hawking's 'A Brief History of Time' only this is the third time he has read it and still he is mystified on several points!

We reckon he has also learnt some serious descriptions of our computer!

Judging by what he has been calling it today we don't think E=MCquite covers it!

If it were me I'd learn how to use pen and paper!

We were up early again this morning and discovered that The Missus was still in bed!

Most unusual!

OTL got up and found that the downstairs light was still on, so that means TM has been up 'Getting Inspired'!

When we went out we got inspired as well, Eric said he could hear Nargles and I'm sure I heard something moving in the grass!

Wossat?
The computer naming carried on all morning and in the end TM said she couldn't stand it any more and rushed off to the doctors surgery to get her ears syringed out!

That left us having to use the big car to get down to the beach with Wendy and Monty.

Monty was dashing about while Wendy had her head in the grass having a good sniff for monsters!

Monty reckons he saw the monster but before he could jump on top of it, it ran away!

Well, I did see a monster but it ran off as soon as it saw me!
Now, we all think that when OTL or TM goes to have their eyes sorted, they should take Monty with them and get his checked out!

Today we have got chicken instead of Doggy Scoff but the only problem is, we got scoff tomorrow!

OTL is still playing with the computer so we will leave him to it and head off to see what nibbles there are in the kitchen!

With her ears all washed out, TM can hear us coming down the stairs!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

Five cats?

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret.

It's been a funny old day today. The Missus overslept by a couple of hours, Old Two Legs said it was the booze!

We were out good and early as well but we were still up before the sun poked it's nose over the horizon.

At the point where we turn back to the car OTL took a picture of a ship leaving on the morning tide.

Steady as you go Number One!
We told OTL that we were getting fed up with missing the morning sun but he said that the clocks go back in a couple of weeks and we can have as much sun as we want!

Mind you, we will be getting an extra hour in bed!

As we got back to the car, we looked back to see the sun shining on the clouds and aeroplane vapour trails!

Roll on the end of the month, an extra hour plus a sunrise every morning!
 Of course, lunchtime Monty was all for sunshine and getting up an hour later than normal 'cos at the moment he doesn't show his tail until eight thirty!

Mind you, OTL says that when he grows up he'll be a 'Ferret of Leasure'!

Down on the grass he was having a great time hunting, there were slugs and snails but after a sniff decided that were not for eating and then tried hunting mouses and shrews instead!

That slug sniffed like a load of woofer poo!
 One thing they both do is to try to keep up with us as we walk along the grass path. Unlike that hooligan Eric who thinks it's funny to try to give us a nip!

These two just like to keep up with us and of course, if Holly and I get involved in a good sniff they will wander on a bit then sit down to wait for us!

Yep! They are right behind us!
 Now, we had some fun this afternoon, you see OTL had got some new cable to connect the com[outers and the Internetty Modem together. We sort of misheard what he was saying and so we though that he had brought in five cats!

Well, he said he had some Cat5 cables!

Just wait, one day we'll get him with our Sub Woofers!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

The Sun is back!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

What a difference a day makes!

For instance, The Missus stayed up an hour later than normal watching the final Harry Potter DVD. That means she will wake up an hour later than normal which means.............we get longer in bed to finish off our sleep!

It also means that Old Two Legs gets woken up earlier and that means...............we get down the Sea Front before the sun gets up!

Now, this is not on!
 We don't mind walking in the dark but you would have thought the Sun could have woken up to say hello!

Little Eric was ferreting around but had only his nose to guide him. Holly suggested that he borrows OTL's head lamp but after discussion with OTL we decided that battery would be too heavy!
 
Can you make the flash a bit longer?
Eric decided that it would be a good excuse he could use when he ran into the back of us!

I'm coming to get yooooo!
As we headed back to the car, the clouds sort of parted and we could see a bright patch but nowhere near where the sun should be!

Maybe it's a Yoo Ef Ho!

It was much better at lunchtime, the clouds have been blown away and the sun was out making everything warm again!

Monty and Wendy were enjoying a good ferret while Holly and I said Hello to a woofer we hadn't seen for ages!

Monty then had a good idea!

If we closed our eyes then ran into Holly or Daisy would that be a good excuse?
 Well, he tried but as he got close I told him I could see his shadow and that I was feeling very hungry and could just fancy a Ferret Sandwich!

Yeah? Well I just fancy Woofer on Toast!
We all had a good laugh 'cos Wendy and Monty are not like Eric and have never given us a nip!

Back home we all headed off for a snooze before dinner.

Yesterday we had Doggy Scoff and OTL had Curry.

We don't like scoff and curry in not my favourite, so we had to starve all evening until we took a deep breath and finished off the scoff!

If the weather is going to be the same tomorrow, we are going to get OTL out into the garden.

That will teach him!

Mind you, we may get chicken tonight, but that won't get him out of trouble!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

It's WET!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here on a wet Monday!

After all of the super weather we have had this year, it looks like the 'normal' weather is back. Over night we were woken by the rain drops on the window and the dripping of the water, over the gutter and down onto the window ledge!

It didn't help to have The Missus bouncing around in bed and kicking both Holly and I off the bed!

As normal, it was pitch black when we went out for our morning walk and the rain was just finishing.

Old Two Legs decided to leave the camera at home 'cos he didn't want to get it all wet. It didn't matter 'cos the sun stayed behind the clouds and to be honest, there was nothing to see at all!

Eric was doing his favourite trick of waiting for Holly and I to catch up and then hurrying us up to get back to the car before it rained again!

Lunchtime the rain had eased off so Wendy and Monty were out with us. Monty walked all the way from the car, across the football field and all the way down to the Sea Wall. It was at that point he went looking for Nargles!

I think I've found one, I'm sure it's a Nargle, I know it's a Nargle!

 After a good ferret around and a lot of snuffling he lifted his head and said.........

It's run away!
That's the trouble with Nargles, they always run away!

Looking at the weather forecast, we should be getting some better weather over the next few days.

On our way around the walk today we met up with a bird watcher who complained that he hadn't seen any geese on the mud flats and I must say that the Brent Geese normally turn up at the end of September and the Canada Geese are normally here by now.

I reckon all the geese have stayed on holiday 'cos the weather has been so warm this year!

So, have a look at the area where you live to see when the winter birds arrive!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

OTL has got out of weeding!

Hi Woofers!

The Gangs all here, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Last night we had some fun. It was a couple of foxes playing out the front of our house that woke Holly  and of course if Holly wakes up then I'm awake as well!

We looked out the bedroom window in time to see them wander off, well, what do we do now?

Tell Old Two Legs!

Holly and I jumped onto OTL and we both gave his ears and shoulders a good licking!

He was delighted we woke him and he gratefully mentioned his thanks and told us to woof off!

We know he was only playing and so we gave him another lick!

So, there we were awake a whole thirty minutes earlier than normal!

Of course, down on the Sea Front it was still dark and the sun was somewhere over the Mediterranean but it didn't stop OTL from clicking away with the camera!

Any earlier and it would be stars in the sky!
Now, yesterday we were showing off out glittery bits and poor Eric was all non-reflective, not today!

Eric found if he kept his eyes open there would be a bit of light bouncing off his eyeball!

OK, not as flash as our glitter but there was a little light there or as OTL says, a Twinkle!
We think that Eric wants to grow up to be a Sheep Dog. When we are out with him he spends all his time 'Rounding' us up and making sure we don't get lost!

Holly says he just an old fuss pot but it's nice to know he cares about us!

Get them up, move them out, get them up Rawhide!
Now, on the other paw Monty and Wendy are more interested in 'Ferret Sniffs' and leave us alone to get on with Woofer Sniffs except when Monty joins Holly and I in a Sniff Lesson!

We will be glad when Monty grows up a bit. He still has trouble with the steps and although he does get up, it is still a struggle!

I swear these steps are growing!
 Holly says that she gets a little bored waiting for Monty and Wendy but it's still better than having Eric chasing yer tail!

Wake me up when they get close!
 Monty does enjoy the grass path and the sniffs and he has taken to hiding in the grass until Holly and I pass and at that point he jumps out!

I bet they can't see me!
 This afternoon it looked like rain, so bang goes the weeding!

Maybe next week!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!
