There's Chicken and There's chicken!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake, Miss April and Miss May back again!

It's another fun Monday! Well, for us woofers it is! Old Two Legs has got to go out and do some work this afternoon, well that's what he had planned. We think it might involve climbing all over as building to get to an antenna, but he won't know until he gets there!

Holly says that she thinks it just might be a cable connector that is needed but we will have to wait until he gets back tonight!

We are still trying to get used to this messing about with the clocks. Why can't we send them all back to the shop and then just use the sun, you know, get up when he sun get s up and go to bed when the sun goes down!

OK, I know the summer days will be longer but the weather is good then and we won't mind the longer days!

Down on the beach the sun was up but hiding behind the clouds. We saw young Curly the Curlew out on the mud looking for his breakfast.

Curly looking for breakfast.
While Snowflake was messing about in the sea weed, Holly and I sat on the beach and speculated on the finer points of roast Curlew!

Think it tastes like chicken?
Snowflake spent some time trying to dig up a stone from the beach but she couldn't move it at all. It took OTL to solve the problem.

The stone is buried in concrete!

Why won't it move?
Heading back to the car we saw Kelly hovering above the undergrowth. He was looking for his breakfast as well. We stopped for a moment to watch him but unfortunately he didn't get a mouse of vole. It just goes to prove that a Kestrel isn't always successful!

We kept OTL at home until lunchtime when the Page 3 Girls got all dressed up in their harnesses ready for their rampage on the beach!

The sneaky pair snuggled down into OTL's arms and didn't open their eyes until we got to the beach!

It was fun watching them wake up and after a while, they scampered off towards the Grass Path. Mind you, they did try to get OTL to carry them up to the path!

OK, what about a little carry and then we walk?
Back home OTL left with his tools and a couple of parcels and we didn't hear anything for an hour when he telephones through saying that the road off the Hoo Peninsular is jammed solid with cars and lorries. It seems that there has been a fuel spillage and that has closed the only road off the Peninsular. OTL had been sitting in the traffic jam going nowhere!

We are expecting him back 'cos we have heard that the road is going to be closed for a little while yet.

So, Holly and I are going to sit at the bedroom window and wait for him.

So, bye bye for now and see you tomorrow.

  1. Hmmm, sounds like Holly has been watching OTL very closely with his work, is she training to be his apprentice? I really agree about the clocks, all I keep thinking is, is it scoff time yet. Waking up when the sun comes out and going to be when the sun goes down sounds like a brilliant idea to me, Daisy, I think you should be prime minister. Love the picture of you and Holly discussing the curlew taste, I can see Holly chops licking her lips. Poor Snowflake, she could have been there all day trying to move that stone, good job OTL found out it was set in concrete or they'd both still be there. Those page 3 girls are lazy little bodies, fancy not waking up until you're on the beach and wanting a carry back to the path. Poor OTL not being able to escape, never mind at least he can stay in the warm and get cuddles from you until the roads clear. Have a lovely evening all, hope the muggings are good, I better go see if it's scoff time yet. Love, licks and wags from little Arch xxxxxxxx

  2. Love the discussion picture with Hollys' tongue licking her lips at the thought of roast curlew but I ton't think there would be much taste as it is too small. A pigeon would be better but stick to chicken they are easier to catch as TM just picks them up from the supermarket and cooks them. So OTL still hasn't done his job which means he has to leave home again and hopefully get along the road. Why does Snowflake decide to chose a rock that is set in concrete, silly Snowflake but at least OTL was able to put her straight before she did herself an injury trying to move it. Tomorrow I am going to Bexleyheath to talk to people about chocolate so that should be fun and hopefully I will get some samples. xxxxx
