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.

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.
