A Day the Carnival Came to Town!

Hi Woofers!

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

We have had a fun day today!

First of all we met up with all the lads down on the beach and I mentioned that Holly had an enormous tongue.

Young Dylan asked if it was as long as his?

Just for fun I can stick it in my collar!
 Holly was amazed at the size of it and Dylan said that it sometimes gets in the way when he is eating his dinner and he has to be careful he doesn't chew on it!

Nah! Mine is bigger than yours!
 All the time Holly and Dylan were comparing tongues, Miss Wendy was digging a trench using just her nose!
Just like Holly, yer stick it in and then shove!
 On the way back home we ran into the Grain Carnival Parade.

There was the Fire Station men who were running around in their Fire Engine squirting water over everyone!

OTL was taking pictures and saying that you don't often see villages doing this any more 'cos of the 'Health & Safety' rules nowadays!

The start of the march!

Of course 'The Committee' has to get in on the act!
 There were other groups doing different things like dancing and judo and football and stuff like that.

There is nothing like a 'Boogy Down the Street'
 There was one float with the Miss Invicta Two Legs who were waving at everyone who would wave back!

Oh! Look! There's OTL, lets wave at him!
The road was shut off for a whole hour while the parade passed by. It wasn't because it was a big parade but but the parade went all over the place blocking up all the roads in the village!

The Missus enjoyed her day up at the village hall at their 'Crop', so we had a bit of peace and quiet and even got to watch a bit of TV, well, fall asleep in front of the TV!

Tomorrow we have no plans yet, we will have a chat with OTL later and make plans!

See you tomorrow!

  1. Evening little maties down by the seaside. Wow, you have had a fun day. Now why weren't you and Holly chops in the parade? I mean if they have good looking TL's they need good looking FL's and wot better pair of good looking FL's than you and Holly chops with the big tongue. Now I hope that Dylan and Holly weren't kissing with tongues, I would get a bit jealous about that! Miss Wendy sure can move a pile of sand with her little nose. Good to hear you had a siesta in front of the telly this afternoon. Pleased to hear Mrs TM enjoyed her day at the crop. We've had no excitement here so far but the Battle Proms are on at Hatfield tonight and there's rumours of the Red Devils and fireworks and a Spitfire going over so we'll probably hear them even if we don't see them. Mind they best watch out cos my mum has to get up at 4 tomorrow so they best not wake her up or she'll give them devils and spitfires. Well now, I spose you heard the news, my poo that my mum was collecting and taking to the vets, only had poo, no gold nuggets, on the one paw my mum was pleased to hear there were no nasties but on the other paw she reckons we could have done with a few gold nuggets. Ah well I'll just have to keep sending her to work. My boy is off work tomorrow so I'll be doing boysitting duties in the morning, I'd better get an early night cos he's hard work. Have a lovely evening all, I'm off to put my paws up. Hope you get some decent muggings. Hope Izzy's mum is continuing to do well. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxx

  2. The procession looked good, it is nice to see this nowadays and thankfully the Fire Brigade weren't called away, we went to a Lifeboat open day in Queenborough and they were called away before they started! That certainly is a big tongue, I take it that .Holly came in second, that's a pity it might come in useful. Good news all round it seems, Izzy's mum making progress, Archie no gold nuggets but also no nasties and TM managing a super duper day at the crop. Not been exciting here, cooking, washing, ironing and Michael washing up, pretty much humdrum, never mind tomorrow is another day. xxxxxx
