OTL is in The Poo, TM is not Happy and the ferrets are showing off!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Grumpy Freddy de Ferret!

Oh dear! it has been one of those days when not matter what he does, Old Two Legs manages to get it wrong!

It started this morning when he let May and April out for breakfast and April did a little 'Marker Poo' in the corner. OTL, quick as a flash leans down to pick up the poo with the very handy 'Poo Shovel' when May comes running over and gives him a playful nip on the arm.

'Oh Golly Gosh' spake OTL jumping back. In his haste to get out of the way of May, he managed to flip the contents of the Poo Shovel into the air where it circumscribed a gentle arc, returning to earth where OTL's hand was waiting to catch it!

Splat went the poo, Sh**! spake OTL, that's right said May!

May was rolling on her back laughing her tail off while April was just too busy slurping the milk from the Doggy Bowl on the floor!

On our walk the wind was blowing the cold stuff about and we all decided to 'Get a Move On' and get back home ASAP!

May didn't think much when she was told to 'Hurry Up' half way through a wee!

Can't a Girl have a Wee in Peace?
Back home we left OTL to get on with his stuff while Holly and I went off in search of breakfast, we found it, caramelised ox heart!

Well, it was more than caramelised, it was like chewing old boots! The Missus blamed OTL 'cos she was busy on FaceAche telling the world that the latest video was located in the wrong place!

Seems OTL hit the wrong button and sent it to my account instead of TM's!

OTL doubly in the poo this time!

Lunchtime was not any better for OTL, there he was, trying his best to get us all out for a walk in the sunshine when the sunshine went behind a cloud. The wind was still cold and was blowing right up the ferrets tail!

Couple that with the missing ferret leads and yoke!

OTL had left it at home, so, the only thing left to do was to loan our lead and yoke to the ferrets so they could get a walk!

They were not too happy about that and when you look at the photo you can see it was a bit 'Over The Top'!

We're Ferrets not big Woofers!
First Wendy would stop for a sniff and Freddy would be dragging her along the beach, then Freddy stopped for a wee and Wendy would pull him off his paws!

In the end Freddy started to howl and say his legs had fallen off and if OTL didn't pick them and Wendy up he would report OTL to the Ferret Rescue Centre!

My Paws, My Paws, I can't feel my Paws!
That was it, OTL picked them up, Wendy and Freddy got a lift all the way to the car!

Back home again and Shona, the Landlady OTL and Alun stayed with on Orkney sent an email with some pictures of the Aurora last night.

OTL was not happy and is now talking of making another trip up there at the end of this year!

If only OTL could see the Aurora down South!
I must admit, it does look super and even TM said she wanted a print of it so she can make a card!

OTL said that he is on the last bottle of Highland Park, an Orkney Whisky, so that is a good reason for going back!

Yeah! Right! I can see TM letting him out again!

See you all tomorrow and keep up with the snuggles Archie Babe, when these TL's are all snotty they need extra care!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.


  1. Evening little maties down there by the seaside with the cold wind. Well Daisy, I think you've done for my mum, she's having some sort of fit, she has tears rolling down her cheeks and is laughing so hard she is trying not to let her tummy split. Now, I consider OTL to be quite lucky when things are taken into consideration, thinking of that marker poo and the shovel going arm over elbow above OTL's head, things could have been a lot worse. The poo or the shovel could have hit him on the noddle and caused a severe concussion, so all in all it was very lucky that he caught it in his hand. Now I think Miss May summed it all up very neatly. I'm pleased to note that the kerfuffle didn't cause Miss April any anxiety and she carried on drinking her milk. If it was as cold there as it was here I don't blame you for cutting your walk short, I'm most surprised though that Miss May didn't have an icicle hanging from here rear end. I was very sorry to hear that Mrs TM over did ox heart and I hope your teeth managed to stay intact whilst you and Holly chops did your best to chew it. I've been reading Mrs TM's comments on faceache and I've put a couple of my own on there, she has been warned that I won't be giving her any sniffy licks when I next see her if she isn't kind to uncle OTL, I mean us chaps have got to stick together. Miss Wendy and Freddy do look a tad small for that lead and yoke, I can understand them being a bit miffed when one pulls the other along just as they're getting settled to do a wee. Poor Freddy, he really is deserving of an Oscar, I reckon he's a better actor than Lassie. I hope he soon got over his grumps. It would be nice for OTL to go back and see those lights and top up his supply of tipple, shame it's a bit more than a day trip and you would all miss him so much. Maybe Mrs TM could be persuaded to let him go if he brought her back another Doris jumper. I've got my mum home now for a few days so with all my snuggles she should get over her snotty nose and sneezing soon. I'm off to the groomers in the morning, I'm not happy, I've just managed to get some new sniffs since my mum bathed me last week. These TL's just don't appreciate the work involved in finding the right sniff, then getting the right sniff in the right place ...... it's not easy. Have a lovely evening all, snuggle up to OTL and let him know that some of us think he's a better cameraman than on the telly. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr (that wind nearly blew my tail off today) Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Weather Warning: You had better enjoy yourselves on Tuesday, the lady on the TV said we are in for a "Wet and windy Wednesday", don't say I didn't warn you, I don't want any grumbling from you Wednesday evening!!
    Poor OTL was right in the poo, did TM manage to wash all the ferret and doggie blankets without sending the TV Producer down to the waters edge with two or three big stones? Maybe TM was trying a new recipe for Caramelised Oxheart for when she next hosts a dinner party, I am sure that I am doing something that evening. It has been cold today but your Diary warmed we up as I laughed and laughed, we have been clearing out our Motorhome ready for the Big Swap on Friday. We never knew we had so much in it, now we have to keep it around before sorting out what really needs to go back. I saw all those colourful skies on TV, I bet OTL and Alun are so disappointed that they missed them, they looked really special. Have you been drinking this Scotch as it is running out, perhaps Freddie has been having a quick slurp for breakfast. Have a not too cold Tuesday and watch out for flying poo. xxxxxx
