OTL hates computers and networks and..........

Hello Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret again!

Today has been an educating day, you see Old Two Legs has been on the computer trying to get the printer to talk to the network.

Now, because OTL has found some new names for the computer and network both the network and the computer are showing off and have stopped talking to OTL!

You know, I'm right glad I don't have to talk to computers!

It was cold this morning and we had to put our Flying Jackets on over our normal harness, it was OK until we sat down on the frosty grass while we were waiting for OTL to finish talking to four....... yes FOUR Two Legs who were taking pictures of the sun rise! It's not on, that is normally OTL's job!

Mind you, a good snooze soon put us to rights but OTL still had the network to sort out!

Lunchtime there was only one woofer, other than us, and we said hello and of course it was all over OTL like a rash!

We let her off 'cos she is only four months old and has yet to learn her manners!

Can I have a cuddle!
 Holly said that Honey, that's her name looks like she will grow up to be a pretty woofer!

OTL crouched down and Honey got her tail tickled and her tummy tickled and then behind her ears!

That was fun, can you do it again?
It's a good job OTL has more than one computer or we would never get a chance to do my diary each day!

Mind you, Archie Babe must have problems when his access to the Internetty is restricted to the Telefonic thing!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Getting back to wot things should be!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here!

Last night was great, we snoozed on the sofa and then jumped onto Old Two Legs lap for another snooze while watching the TV.

We managed a little thievery when dinner arrived and finished it all off with some cheese and biscuits!

We know how to live!

The Missus was up early, as normal and she woke everyone up, including OTL!

We were out before the sun was up but because of the lack of wind, clouds and on top of that, there was ice all over the windows!


Before the sun!
 What was super was the colours across the River Medway across to Sheerness.

Just look at that!
 We reckon that was a real fuzzy photo but OTL says it has atmosphere!

Holly said it still looked cold!

During the morning OTL managed to get the computers to talk to the network and the network could see the all the computers!

Even OTL admits he doesn't know what he did to make it all work again!

I rather like the idea of a pencil, and a sheet of paper, well it won't crash and loose all the info!

Mind you, it takes longer to write it all and then you have to do a speel chuck!

Eric and Wendy have been out rampaging around the house. Eric did a rampage around the shelves in TM's store room and scared the tail off himself when he pushed a big plastic sheet off the shelf which then crashed into the step ladder and made a terrific noise!

It was all sorted out when he got a cuddle from OTL!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret

Gone!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here!

They have gone!

We get our sofa back and our own food bowls and treats and cuddles from Old Two Legs!

We can get onto The Missus lap for a cuddle without grumbling at them to clear off and Eric says that he is expecting to have the run of the house tomorrow morning!

OTL has been playing with the printer trying to print some pictures but one computer doesn't want to talk to the network where the printer is and refuses to talk to the network where the other printer is stored and on top of that the program that holds the picture has decided not to allow anyone to use the printing program that has somehow been wiped from the other computer!

Couple that with the mobile phone being a right pig to update with all the files from the old phone that doesn't work and the contacts list is about to land up on the Space Station where it reckons life is a little less fraught!

And you think you got aggro!

We reckon that tomorrow OTL will have fixed it all and be back to square one!

Cross your claws!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

Finding Sniffs!

Hell Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret, Louie, Oscar and Alfie!

It's been a bit of a snoozy day today. First thing this morning the Tesco man arrived and there was The Missus getting into a tangle trying to get dressed before opening the front door.

That gave us all a chance of a quick woof and then back to bed for a snooze until Old Two Legs fell out of bed!

This of course means that TM had to come out in the dark and cold walking Louie on the lead while OTL had Oscar and Alfie on the other leads.

No photo's this morning but at lunchtime we managed to sneak it out so that we have a record of sharing sniffs with these hooligans!

Thes post is the best start!
 Then we introduced some of our other woofer mates wee!

OK, here is Bert and Boris and Ollie and Big Sid and the other one is Barney II
We let them get on with it and a bit later they picked up more sniffs but this time it was an old Ferret sniff Eric had left behind a week or two ago!

Hey! We found some more!
Just for a change the sky was blue and the wind had dropped but OTL still wouldn't let us go on the beach 'cos the tide was in and he didn't want the Hooligans falling into the sea!

Shame!

Looks just right for a dip!
 We met up with Alfred and both Oscar and Alfie had a sniff and said hello!

Yeah, we are new here as well.
 OTL said that the Hooligans were behaving themselves and other than getting the leads tangled, they were good little woofers!

OK lads, get in line or TM will tell you off!
OTL spent the afternoon playing on the computer trying to get the printer to talk to the program that controls the printing colours but so far a sunny day looks like a midnight stroll along the Sea Wall!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret, Louie, Oscar and Alfie!

Five Woofers out Walkies!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret, Louie, Oscar and Alfie!

I tell you, being invaded by a bunch of hooligans can be a bit fraught!

We have been getting the 'Pecking Order' sorted and I think we are almost there!

Last night Holly and I got the best spot and the three hooligans got their beds in the bedroom, but on the floor!

A very peaceful night, no woofing, no grumbles and we were up as normal at five thirty, well we were but Old Two Legs made it last until six fifteen!

The Missus was supposed to come out with us but at the last moment decided she should hang around to get the Tesco order which left OTL to take us all walkies in the dark!

There was no real problems, Holly and I were off the lead, as normal, and the rest were on their own individual leads.

One thing about these woofers is they are used to having a poo in the garden rather than save it for when we have our walks which only means that OTL has some shovelling to do after they go home!

We got back home to find that Tesco's still had not come, it's tomorrow that he is supposed to arrive!

You know what  that means? Yep, OTL is out on his own tomorrow morning, again!

Lunchtime was better, we were out in the sunshine and the wind! Still, we introduced the Hooligans to some of our sniffs and they enjoyed a run through the forest. Louie and Oscar managed to slip their harnesses but OTL got them back in and although Louie ran off, he came back to OTL's call, well done that pup!

We didn't take any photo's cos five dogs and a camera was just a little too much, maybe tomorrow when we have settled down!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret, Louie, Oscar and Alfie.

A Sun Rise and Three Intruders!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here!

Well, what a change from yesterday. Overnight the wind has dropped and the temperature has gone down and the frost has arrived!

You know we even got to put on our 'Flying Jackets' just to keep the chill out!

It wasn't a heavy frost but it did turn the grass white and on top of that, the car windows were full of ice!

Just imagine what it would be like if that were snow!
We were late in getting up, it was Old Two Legs fault, he over slept and who were we to wake him?

The good thing was that we got to see a sunrise! Now we haven't seen one for ages and it made a nice change to see the sun creep over the horizon.

Looks like a Turner painting!
OTL says that the docks at Sheerness was where the ship The Fighting Temeraire was being towed from and that Turner must have set up his painting stuff on the Isle of Grain!

Of course, OTL just had to take a shot of the trees, well, it wouldn't be a sunrise without them!

Sun and Trees.
Lunchtime came and although there was a breeze it was sunny and a lot warmer than this morning.

One thing we noticed, with the exception of a couple of trees, all the leaves had dropped and the trees were all but bald!
Ready for the snow!
It was late this afternoon that the three hooligans arrived, Oscar, Louie and Alfie. Little monsters they are, they had a go at marking their territory but The Missus explained that weeing up the curtain was not the thing to do!

We all had a run in the garden and although it was dark, none of them fell into the pond, still, there is plenty of time!

Holly and I will have to be careful about our food, the three of them are right little guts and I can see I won't be able to leave my bowl of scoff unattended!

I'm not sure where they are sleeping tonight, I mean, there is just not enough room for OTL, TM, Holly and I let alone three hooligans!

I'll let you know what happens tomorrow!

Bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret, Louie, Oscar and Alfie.

Black Friday?

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here!

It's not been a bad day today, we were out early and Old Two Legs managed to catch a sunrise, well not the sun but more of the pre-glow of the sun, if you know what I mean!

Not the best but we haven't seen one for ages!
It was good to see the colours and although the sun hadn't got up it made a change from those horrid grey sky's and rain drops landing on your nose!

The Missus was getting all excited 'cos the F1 Racing is on this weekend and she has no plans to go out glue slapping up the village hall or even visiting other glue slapping events!

That also means we can't get onto the sofa with a big carrot and chew our way through the carrot during the race!

She just hates the carrot crumbs all over the place!

Lunchtime we met up with a couple of woofers we don't often see and would you believe it, they are smaller than Holly!

.......any smaller and you could be a ferret!
They were both a bit yappy but so it Holly and I have also known to voice an opinion now and again!

We left them to it and headed off down to the beach where the tide was almost all the way in but the waves were gentle so, no big sloshing stuff over the Sea Wall!

We keep on seeing adverts on the TV about 'Black Friday', I really don't know what the excitement is all about, if everyone waited a bit longer they would have the 'January Sales' or a bit longer and there is the 'Spring Sales' then of course there is the Summer Sales' and those are followed by the 'Back to School Sales' which are just ahead of the 'Grand Autumn Sales' and those are followed by 'Black Friday'!

OTL says it's a trick to get everyone to buy stuff and is as a result of the Two Legs fear of missing out on something they never knew they wanted but because it is supposed to be price discounted , they really aught to buy it! The syndrome is called FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)!

I suppose it's a bit like feeding time, you know, two bowls of food, mine and hers from the same pack but hers is better tasting just because it isn't my bowl!

It works with a chew chopped in half, yours and mine but I want yours 'cos I'm sure it's tastier than mine!

See, it's not only TL's but woofers as well!

FOMO is all in the mind!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Same Old but not so wet!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here!

Today the ferrets were let out for a rampage around the house. They haven't been out since last Sunday and to be honest, they were going a little 'Cage Crazy'!

Every time Old Two Legs walked past the cage, Eric would be there with his claws clamped around the bars and shaking the cage for all his worth!

He wanted out for a run!

Well, to day he got it and both he and Wendy were dooking their tails off and chasing each other over and under the furniture plus jumping onto OTL's back for a cuddle and tummy tickle.

The weather wasn't brilliant but at least the rain held off while we were out down the Sea Front.

Not the most exciting vista!
Lunchtime we arrived to find the tide was right in and slapping the Sea Wall for all it's worth. The sea shells were being washed right up to the Sea Wall and even over the concrete steps!

No, I'm not going in there!
While we were sorting out the sniffs three tiddly woofers came past and as we had met them before, we exchanged sniffs and OTL got a howling big woof as a greeting. Trubble was, the 'Woof' sounded more like a gargle with custard!

It's not a woof, it's my Party Trick!
Now, there are some Two Leg's who think it is smart to dress their woofers up in all manner of rain coats and woolly jumpers and it is so EMBARRASSING!

I mean, how could you do this to a woofer?

Come on OTL, I need a cuddle!
OTL took pity on this woofer who not only got a cuddle and a tickle behind the ear but was allowed to give OTL a lick on the nose!

Well, we all felt so sorry for them!

OTL has been out most of the afternoon working so Holly and I have been sitting by the bedroom window watching out for him to return.

Friday tomorrow, the weekend is nearly upon us, with a bit of luck we may get the ferrets out for a run down on the beach!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

This week it's one long Monday!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here!

Wot a day! It started off with Old Two Legs getting up all of fifteen minutes late so that when we went out for a walk we had missed the 'Window' in the rain. Needless to say, we all got wet!

The morning was spent snoozing in the office and listening to the ferrets complaining about not being let out of the office for a rampage!

We've had a Two Legs in this week messing about with the kitchen cupboards.

All morning it has been raining but at lunchtime the rain had stopped!

Off we went, with our rain coats on, just in case and when we got down to the Sea Front, it was raining!

You can tell how wet it is out here, OTL has got his wellies out of the shed and is using them when he takes us out!

So, we have had three days of wet and damp and it looks like it will remain like that for the next few days!

Holly says that we could get the longest wet Monday this year!

Unless of course it carries on being wet and damp through next wee as well!

While OTL was cleaning the ferrets cage, he put both of them in the small travelling cage and they both snuggled down together and looked out of the cage at OTL rushing past with shovel loads of ferret poo.

The funny thing was, Eric was on the bottom and Wendy was on top of Eric, resting her chin on Eric's head, they looked dead cute!

We have been listening to OTL talking on the telephone to his mobile phone 'Service Providor' cos his mobile phone has gone wobbly.

It sort of goes like this, 'Hello, is that sales?'   Yes how can I help you?  'Well I got one of your phones and it has stopped working, like it won't switch on' Oh I'm sorry about that, what is your phone number?  '07777 777777'  OK, I have it here, ummmm, sorry I can't talk to you. 'wot?'  No, err, sorry but you have been with us for twenty years and have attained the distinction of being a Premier Customer.  'OK who can I talk to?'    If you dial 191 there is someone who can talk to you.  'How do I do that, my phone won't switch on!'  Umm, if you look on our website they have contact details.  'OK, I'll look on the web site'      Off he goes only to find the web site is shut down for maintenance and won't be up and running for a day or two!

It's a good job OTL keeps his old phone in the drawer, at least he can swap over the sim card!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

We got visitors this weekend!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Well, unless we didn't know better I'd say that today is Monday but Old Two Legs says it's Tuesday and it's just as miserable but at least the wind has dropped!

Now, as you know, us woofers are in charge around here but we caught OTL and The Missus discussing visitors that are supposed to be staying with us for a couple of days.

WOOFERS!

I mean, we know them, they are those three hooligans that live with Auntie Jane and got a super garden where you can poo or wee where you want!

Well, if they come here there will be no pooing in the garden and if there is any trouble we got a pond we can circum navigate with out trouble but these hooligans have already been in pond trying to run around it!

Local Knowledge is a distinct advantage!

Mind you, we have got to take them out with us down the Sea Front but that's no problem 'cos they will be on a lead each while Holly and I will get our normal rein free walkies!

A real miserable morning.
 Mind you, we can show them a good path with sniffs they would have not sniffed before!

We secretly call this 'Sniff Alley'!
 This afternoon, on our walk the sea looked really strange, like a painting sort of!

We can't make up our minds which is the better one.

A view from Grain looking out to sea.
 This other one is definitely one that could have been painted!

We think this a sort of  'Inpressionist' type of painting!
 We asked wot an 'Impressionist' type of painting was and OTL says it is a painting that gives an 'Impression' of something, so, wot are these then?

A Seaside Storm Impression?

You know sometimes it's best we don't ask questions cos we don't understand the answer!

Bring on the hooligans, we're ready for them!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.
