Bald as a Badgers Butt!

Hello Woofers!

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

Wot a Day! 

It starts off at four thirty this morning when Old Two Legs dreams he wants a wee, gets up and sleep walks into the clothes cupboard and wakes up not knowing how he got there and wearing a coat hanger like an ear ring!

He didn't have too much giggle juice yesterday, honest!

At the proper waking up time, six fifteen, he woke up and knew where he was, in bed, not the cupboard!

Overnight is was cloudless and there was a layer of frost/ice on the windscreen so there was a delay while he scrapped it all off and warmed up the motor.

The sun was getting up and the moon was still hanging around so OTL waved the camera at the moon, just for fun!

Moon over the car park!
Walking around the football field we headed off towards the sea front and spotted our favourite shot.



Pre Glow, Tree, Bench and Poo Bin!
I mean, It just don't get any better!

As we headed back to the car park the sun was still hiding beyond the horizon and the moon was still hanging about!

Hand held camera shot, not bad!
When we got home OTL got the hair cutting stuff out, you know, scissors, shaver, shampoo, water and the air blower to dry us off!

Holy wast the first and OTL spent a long time getting rid of the clumps of hair that Holly suffers from. They seem to grow on top of her paws and under her arm pits, of which she has four!

Well, OTL brushed and snipped and brushed and snipped and in the end managed to get rid of every one we could find. I'm sure there may be a few small knots but OTL will keep a watch out and who knows, he may have got rid of them all!

Well, after that the next is a wash and hair cut which Holly is never a great fan of getting done but in the end OTL felt she was bald enough to get down from the table and come and show me!

We woke Eric and Wendy 'cos we heard that Rosie was up the village hall so at lunchtime we headed off to say hello. OTL was presented with a couple of extra large iced fruit cake, the sort he loves, so we know what he will be eating this weekend!

We headed off for our lunchtime walk and both Wendy and Eric came along as well. As we crossed the football field we spotted a Grain Rock on one of the benches, so, not having the camera OTL used his phone to capture the rock!

Yep, that's a Robin on there!
 It was a bit windy down on the sea front and both Wendy and Eric decided they would stay in the ferret bag until we got to the forest and although Eric was OK with that, Miss Wendy decided that the bag was not only warmer but safer!

Back home it was my turn and since I had got rid of all the hair knots last time it wasn't too bad and a lot quicker than Holly!

OTL put Holly in the office and shut the door cos she just doesn't like me getting attention and she missing out!

Now that's OK but when the door is opened, POW!

She does get so excited!

We are going to offer to help OTL demolish that cake!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

Doomy Day Today!

Hello Woofers!

We are back again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

As you would have known, Plawn Clackers and King Plawns went down a treat yesterday and it was helped by a bottle of Bubbly The Missus was given for Christmas!

Holly and I made pigs of ourselves and OTL indulged in a stack of Shortbread and some of his Giggle Juice!

We all slept well and although OTL sort of rolled out the side of the bed last night!

In fact we slept so well we were late in getting up!

Not that it worried us 'cos we could hear the rain bashing on the window pane which gave us the excuse to duck down under the duvet for a a few more snoozes before we had to get up!

As you would imagine, the rain was still splashing down so there were no pictures of sun rises or pre or after glow!

Holly, being a bit of a pudding has got thick hair that sometimes gets clumped together, so, today OTL sat Holly on the desk and started to snip out the lumps.

Holly was not pleased and wriggled and wriggled and wriggled to try to escape the scissors clacking away!

When OTL starts to do this Holly knows that soon she will be getting a wash and a hair cut!

I think it is tomorrow!

I'm not too bad but if there is time I reckon I will get a short back and sides as well!

Lunchtime came and went, all windy and cold and we were glad to get back home to a warm cushion under the desk in OTL's office.

Tomorrow  TM is off to her Glue Slapping Day in the village hall with her mates so there will be plenty of space for OTL to get the table out with all the straps and stuff for holding a woofer in place while getting shaved!

Holly calls it an Instrument of Torture and spends all her time wriggling around so OTL can't get to the bit he wants to shave!

That doesn't make OTL too happy with Holly and he spends too much time turning her back again to the position he wants her in only to find she has moved again while he picks up the shaver!

More news tomorrow!

Bye Bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

How Old?

Hello Woofers!

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

OK, we got it right this time but instead of sitting on top of Old Two Legs we jumped up and down on the bed and sang our Birthday Singing Song until he woke up!

We helped him open his presents and as you would guess, most of them he could and will drink!

A little late in going out for our morning run, we didn't take the camera and of course, there it was, a super pre glow before the sun got up that lit up the clouds and looked very dramatic!

Back home we got Eric and Wendy out for a run around and they both helped OTL sort out his presents. They also found the soft chicken strips that OTL had brought for us all!

Holly and I woofed them down while Wendy hid hers in her bed while Eric sat there chomping away at the chicken he held between his paws!

Lunchtime walkies was better, no sun rise but we did see a rainbow over the local church!

A Rainbow without rain, is that called a Bow?
The clouds looked interesting over towards Southend but the sniff of Kebab had blown away from us, so, no serous sniffs!

Not a sniff to be sniffed!
 On the way back to the car we spotted another Grain Rock hiding in the crook of a tree, so, OTL being OTL just had to take a picture!

OTL says he is going to try his paw at painting rocks, trouble is, he isn't too good with small rocks so he may use a house brick and a 12" roller!

Slightly weather beaten but still here!
 Now, tonight we will be having the Chinese Take Away so it's Plawn Clackers tonight, plus all the other stuff!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

Ooops!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret back again!

What a windy night we had last night, one of our fence panels was blown out of the end of the garden. Old Two Legs was supposed to put it back today but he has been too busy working, poor lad!

Now, Holly and I had some fun this morning, we both woke up and decided that we would sing our Birthday Song to OTL before he got up.

Holly jumped onto his chest and stuck her nose against his while I curled around the top of his head and stuck my nose into his ear and the pair of us began to sing.

Well, we had hardly got to the second line when he woke up and says that his birthday is TOMORROW!

We did feel a little silly, I mean, singing it a day early!

Holly says that we will have to think up a new song and a way of delivering it 'cos he got spoilt by us this morning!

Our walk first thing this morning was a damp affair, we left home in the dry, well, it wasn't raining but when we got to the Sea Wall there was a rain cloud over the top of us an, 'Splosh' down it came and we all got wet!

Lucky for us lunchtime came and although the rain forecast showed rain over the top of us, OTL said he spotted a 'Window' in the weather and off we went about a half an hour earlier than normal and.....

OTL's Window!
 See, OTL manages it sometimes! The blue sky was over Southend but it wriggled it's way across the Thames and shone on us for a while!


Mmmm, I can sniff Kebabs from Southend!
Eric had decided to stay in bed with Miss Wendy so it was just Holly and I who had a run along the beach.

It's great fun running up and down the beach and digging our claws into the sand as we run!

Holly found a sniff and enjoyed a roll while OTL was jumping up and down telling her she way a 'Smelly Mutt!'

I need a roll in the sand!
We have gathered OTL's birthday cards in a pile under our bed and will give him them tomorrow and thanks to Archie Babe for the Digital Car, Holly and I have had a look at it and think it's great! We will forward it to OTL tomorrow morning!

The Missus says that as it's his birthday, we will have a Chinese Take a Way tomorrow evening and she will share her bottle of bubbly with him!

Well, as long as Holly and I get a share of the Plawn Clackers and King Plawns!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

We're Back!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret back again!

Did you miss us? We missed you!

It was all Old Two Legs fault, on Sunday he was messing about with the computer and it took offence and went into 'Wobble Mode' and refused to load programs!

He only gained control when he uploaded a Windows 10 Update!

He reckons the Windows 10 has a mind of it's own and he says it hates him!

Mind you, the way he talks to the computer it's a wonder it even switches on!

Sunday it still wasn't doing wot it should but he couldn't spend too long playing 'cos we all had an appointment to visit Alun and Glynis for a Birthday visit and a meal!

You see it is Glynis Birthday today and OTL's Birthday tomorrow. So, all together now, just for Auntie Glynis, on the count of five and a half................One, Two, Five 1/2

Happy Birthday to yoooo
Here's a Bucket of Poooo
Two bottles of Wee Wee
From Holly and Me!

We had a super time pinching some Plawn Clackers at lunchtime and listening to tales of when OTL and Alun used to play together when they visited their Nana and that was a long, long time ago!!

Then they left Holly and I to guard the house while they went off for a meal!

A right bunch of Hooligans!
Alun tipped the restaurant off that there were a couple of birthday celebrations and the waiters came marching through the restaurant singing 'Happy Birthday' to the pair of them!

Mind you, the song was not as good as our one!

They couldn't put all the candles on the ice cream cos you would end up with a Tsunami along the table!
Today we got up early cos the weather man says we will get rain and wind soon. Now we know that it's January and rain and cold and wind is normal but we shall be all tucked up in bed while that lot goes on, we're not daft!

It was later on this afternoon that the computer let OTL open up the programs and stuff, so it is all back to square one!

We hope!

Holly and I are planning to wake OTL up early tomorrow, just to wish him a Happy Birthday and Holly says we should let the Ferrets out as well and we will all jump on him to wake him up.

I'm sure he would like that!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

Snoozy Saturday.

Hello Woofers!

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

We love Saturdays, normally we wake up late, which seems to last all day!

Today was a little different, Old Two Legs woke up early, as a result of The Missus crashing about, and he fell out of bed around five thirty!

As soon as he falls out of bed I rush over to where he was sleeping and dive under the duvet which is all warm and snugly!

Today TM is off to her village hall crafty day slapping glue and glitter while OTL takes us out for a stroll around the Sea Wall and through the woods.

Back home Holly and I headed back up to bed while the ferrets had a rampage around the house and getting into as much trouble as they could!

Miss Wendy, being a little older than Eric, loves to pinch the Brambles Biscuits and slurp the Ferret Milk and shove Eric out of the way!  Eric gets his share when Wendy sets off to have a snooze in the Pinny Box which is a warm place to snooze!

Eric and OTL play games with a hand towel. OTL throws it over Eric and he rolls onto his back and grabs the towel in his paws while at the same time OTL tickles Eric's tail!

What with OTL laughing and Eric dooking his tail off Holly and I have a terrible time trying to get some sleep!

Lunchtime Wendy was still fast asleep but Eric was rattling on the cage door and soon he was into his harness and the travelling cage and off we went to the Sea Wall again.

By now it had got a bit colder due to the wind blowing in off the sea and it took some time to get Eric out of the bag for a walk!

As we entered the woods Eric wriggled himself out of the bag and down onto the ground. In the woods the wind had dropped so he could snuffle his way around the dead leaves and the undergrowth.

We went past the Grain Rock that was still sitting in the fork of the tree! I wonder just how long it will take for some Two Legs to see it!

This afternoon OTL was still playing on the computer trying to put together a proposal for one of his customers, dead boring really but it keeps him out of trouble!

When TM arrived back this afternoon she brought in some sausage and chips from the local fish shop. Holly and I had great fun making sure that we got our fair share of sausage!

So, that's it for today, a lazy, snoozy day with the prospect of another snoozy day tomorrow, with a bit of luck!

Bye, bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Getting ready for the weekend!

Hi Woofers!

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

The Missus is getting ready for the weekends Glue Slapping! Mind you, this weekend she is heading off to the village hall with a pack of face masks!

We for start won't be looking in, they might all be getting high on some new glue!

You just can't trust them to behave themselves!

As normal, it was as black as it could be this morning and we often lost Old Two Legs in the dark.

It was better at lunchtime but the clouds were all dark and foreboding, let's hope tomorrow is better.

Spring is a coming, honest!
 Remember that Grain Rock we repositioned the other day? Well, it is still there in the tree where OTL left it. I suppose that everyone is walking past looking at the ground and not up at eye level. Mind you, OTL is six foot two inches so I suppose you would have to walk along looking up!

Look, two birdies sitting in a nest!
While OTL was waving the camera about, Holly and I headed off towards the car, only we took the wrong path, even though, there was a super sniff coming down the path!

Yeah, I know he is calling but this sniff is so juicy!
 This afternoon they went off shopping and left Holly and I to guard the house which was OK but we were glad when they came back 'cos that means we may get some treats!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Archie Babes Eight Today!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret here on Archie's birthday!

I see that Archie has had a couple of Sing Song Birthday wishes already so we will have to add our effort to the pile!

OK, in Nine Seven Time................

One, Two, Ninety Seven!

Archie Babe is eight today,
Nice things to him we will say,
So, 'Let's sniff your butt', as we're passing
Happy Birthday all day!

OK, that's not too bad!

We hope the weather has been better where Archie lives 'cos it's been rubbish down here!

Black clouds, a little rain, and a potty woofer woofing at Eric!

No pictures today, too wet and too dark and we couldn't find any more Grain Rocks!

Eric came out with us again but because of the rain he decided to stay in the 'Ferret Bag' which was just as well 'cos a potty Collie came up to Old Two Legs and started woofing at Eric which scared him. OTL put out his hand and showed the Collie his palm and said, in a voice we know as 'Listen To Me'!

And said 'NO!'

That was it, he backed away and although there was some grumbling, he backed off and left us alone!

That sorted him!

I reckon we should wake Miss Wendy tomorrow 'cos she hasn't had run for a while.

OTL clipped Wendy's claws this morning so a run on the concrete will round them off!

Let's hope Archie Babe has had loads of nibble treats today, well, an itchy butt once a year is allowable!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Another Grey Day

Hello Woofers!

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

We were hoping to get another sunrise like yesterday but to be honest we were unsure it would even get light!

So, with the camera left in the car we carried on along the path in the dark looking for a place to wee!

Lunchtime it was light and as he was making such a noise in the cage, we decided that Eric should come out for a run along the sea wall!

To begin with Eric refused to move but by the time we got to the beach he was galloping along sniffing all the sniffs and even started to dig a hole!

Just for a change we went along a new path and found a new Grain Rock! It had been placed on a concrete lid and covered with old leaves!

OTL inspected it and saw it was a small picture of a couple of birds in a yellow coloured nest.

Getting ready  for Spring?

A new place for the Rock!
 Just before the gate we spotted another rock and because we didn't have a camera, OTL had to use the phone to take a picture, mind you he was a bit wobbly!

A Wobbly shot!
 Let's cross our paws that we get a sunrise tomorrow and a few more Rocks!

Now, put your thinking collars on and get into gear 'cos tomorrow is Archie Babes Birthday! So, we want Happy Birthday Songs that rhyme with words like ee and oo!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret!

A Sunrise!

Hello Woofers!

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

We did it! Yes, we got down to the sea front just in time to see it!

The Bench!
Well, OK, not just the bench but the pre glow of the sunrise and the sun rose at 08:04hr!

It would have been a while before the sun crept over the top of Sheerness but the pre glow is always dramatic and in fact we reckon it is better than the actual sun rise it's self!

Getting better but we can't hang around!
 Old Two Legs reckons that it won't be to long before he will be getting out the big camera and a bigger lens.

We still reckon he is a big show off!

You can tell everyone is back at work, OTL has been bashing  away on the computer 'Processing Orders'.

Mind you, that gives us plenty of time for a snooze under the desk!

The undergrowth is growing all ready for Spring.
We saw a Grain Rock the other day but as much as we have looked, it has gone!

Grain Rocks with legs?

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.
