Here we are, back again!
Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!
Well, wot a time we have had over the last few days! Remember that Old Two Legs and Cousin Alun headed off to Scotland to visit the Culloden Battle Field just a couple of days before the 'Real Anniversary'. Well the had an eventful trip up to begin with. When they got to Stafford the car decided to break one of the ABS sensors which, as you all know, has something to do with the brakes and with no brakes, serious things can happen!
So, they pulled into Stafford and found a Mercedes centre and managed to get the car in for an emergency repair. It took about four hours to get it all done and soon they were back on the road again, with OTL's credit card a little deeper in debt!
Alun was thinking of using his credit card, but Auntie Glynis told him off, so he didn't!
|She has said I can't have it!|
OTL and Alun decided to visit Fort George, which was just down the road and this has often been seen on the TV, so a visit was a rare treat!
|It's a long walk to the Guard House!|
|Now, what we need is a sunset!|
|We can almost hear the Bag Pipes!|
|One of the markers where the bodies of the Jacobite's were buried.|
|In the battle there were only fifty of the Loyalist killed.|
|Jacobite battle losses were over one thousand five hundred, many more were hunted down and killed after the battle.|
While all this battle field visiting and history lessons was going on, Holly and I couldn't play on the computer 'cos there was no password on the laptop. We thought that OTL had forgotten but no, it was because he was changing ISP and chose the time when he was away for it to change over and get all sorted. So, now he is back, ISP has settled in and 'POW' it's all working and even the email is there!
Yesterday OTL told us he had spent twelve hours driving, nearly seven hundred miles to get back home.
Of course, when he got in we gave him the 'Woofers Welcome' and dived into his bags to see what presents he had brought us! TM got some special 'Celtic Knot Steel Stencils' for TM and for Holly and I, we got some Smackeroos Beef strips which tasted great!
You know, even the ferrets enjoyed them as well! Well, we had to share them 'cos there wasn't too many ferret type presents in Scotland!
On the way back they came down the A1 road 'cos there was terrible traffic hold ups on the M1 and M6 which held them up but coming back the road was busy but no traffic jams!
Today we had the children and grand children visit and to collect their Easter Eggs!
Now, I'm not too much into small Two Legs, especially ones that want to chase me or keep pulling my fur. I get sort of scared and tend to woof at them, so OTL had both Holly and me under his 'Protection' and cuddled us. I must admit, I did have one 'woof' when little Megan made me jump, but, no damage, to me or Megan!
So, now OTL is back, all he wants to do is sleep! It will be an early night tonight, after a small slurp of Single Malt from the new whisky glass he purchased from Culloden Visitor Centre!
See you all tomorrow and OTL says that chocolate is not good for woofers, so we have got to stay away from the choccy eggs!
Bye Bye for now!
Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
