I think we got away from the storms!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, we have been keeping an eye open out of the window and the sun has shone for most of the day so far.

Looking at the weather radar, we have seen thunder storms all around us but not over the top of us!


The temperature is dropping and the barometer is dropping fast, so we may yet get a drop or two!

It was a different story this morning, the ferrets were late in getting up and it seems that everyone was half asleep!

We went out for our walk and instead of the ferrets looking out of their travelling cage window, they both climbed inside the cuddle cup and fell asleep!

are we there yet?
 Once they were out of the cage it didn't take too long for May to wake up and start ferreting but April wanted to stay in the ferret bag until we got to the beach!

Once on the sand she had a little scrape of the sand then decided she would get back in the bag until we got to the grass path!

I really can't get in the mood today!
Back home it was 'Up Market Doggy Scoff which both Holly and I polished of in no time at all and then settled down for a snooze until lunchtime.

It was still sun shine, no sign of a cloud, never mind a storm!

We were a little early on the beach and the tide hadn't come in yet and it was all still mud instead of waves!

I suggested that we could dash out on the mud and meet the tide but Holly said that Old Two Legs was just too close and anyway, there was no way she was getting her paws muddy!


Sorry Sis, you are on your own today, he is just behind us!
 On the way back to the car we looked at the power station chimney and the tree smaller stacks from the gas powered station next to it.

Holly says it looks like a Daddy Chimney out for a walk with his children!

Come along kids, keep up!
 Freddy and Wendy had fun diving in and out of the tall grass and at one point Wendy came rushing out of the grass saying that she had lost Freddy!

Where's Freddy? He's gone!
What we didn't tell her was that Freddy had blagged a ride in the ferret bag by pretending he had a sore paw!

Back home OTL had a cunning plan!

He has been thinking about this for some time.

We had got hold of an old stone jar and had put it in the garden expecting the mouses to make a home in it but after a couple of years no mouses had set up home. So, next plan is to make it into a water feature.

OTL reckons if he drills a hole in the side of the jar, attach a pipe to where the hole is and connect the other end of the pipe to one of the water fountains then water would fill the jar and trickle out of the jar and back into the pond!

Then it would look like the jar was keeping the pond full of water!

So, today he started and the first thing that happened was The Missus started to tell him he was doing it all wrong and the jar was in the wrong place and it was leaning over too far and..........

You know we think OTL should go and see the Two Leg vet person 'cos he suddenly went deaf!

He drilled the hole in the side of the jar and attached the pipe to it and plugged it into the water pump. Then just after he had got it all ready to go and was about to plug the power lead in, the sun went behind the clouds and the pump stopped working!

Now we will have to wait until the sun comes out again to see if it all works!

See you tomorrow!


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