29 and 3/4 Shades of Grey!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, it's the end of the year today and we are all getting ready for next year. We have sent Old Two Legs several SMS' and at least a dozen emails reminding him to change the date to 2018!

Not that he will listen, he'll be OK until February then he will forget and slip back to 2017!

This morning it was raining when we went out for a walk and the ferrets managed to stay under the blanket and go back to sleep while Holly and I headed off to the beach.

When we arrived it was still raining and OTL decided to leave the camera in the car 'cos it's not waterproof!

When we got around the corner the rain suddenly stopped! That was it, off we went sniffing and woofing and enjoying a run down to the beach.

There was no sun but the sky was full of grey clouds, in fact we haven't seen so many shades of grey in the sky!

Back home it was a relaxing morning with The Missus getting good results on some newly designed cards she has been making for display at a show in the U.S.A.

She has shown them on Fachache and she says that 'it's gone potty!'

We reckon the Master Classes will be fully booked for the next six months!

Lunchtime came around and as it wasn't raining OTL reckons that it was time the ferrets got some fresh air. Freddy and Wendy said they would rather stay under the blanket but before they could run away they were transferred to the travelling cage!

Off we went and the rain held off all the time we were down on the beach. Miss Wendy enjoyed a scamper but Freddy was chasing OTL calling out for a lift!

It was still cloudy and Holly reckons she could count twenty five shades. Freddy sat down and gazed skyward and announced that there were in fact twenty nine and three quarters shades!

The bit that was three quarters was where two clouds had merged and created three quarters of a cloud while the last quarter was almost black!

Tonight, Holly and I have got bets on whether OTL and TM will stay up to see the New Year in or retire to bed when the bottle of Bollinger runs out!

Happy New Year to you all!


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