TM gets a surprise and May gets a visit to the vet!

Yo Ho Woofers!

The Lads are back, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy ad Eric de Ferret!

Well, wot a day we have had!

We were up a little late this morning, Old Two Legs over slept and I must admit that I was enjoying being tucked up close to his back, all nice and warm!

We headed down to the Sea Wall and noticed that the customs ship had finally gone off chasing Pirates!

There is was....Gone!
Back home we settled down to a little rest while OTL de pooed the ferret cages but that had to wait a little while.

Miss May and Eric were upstairs in their cage when OTL opened the bottom door and the pair came charging down the ramps and corner levels until they jumped into OTL's hand and charged off to rampage around the house. Well, that's wot normally happens but today Eric was first out and Miss May came charging behind, except today she fell off the bottom ramp, not very high but she went crashing onto the cage floor and did a sort of forward roll and landed up on her back!

Of course OTL picked her up and gave her a cuddle just to make sure she was OK.

Then down on the floor she went and headed towards the top of the stairs when the front half of her body sort of fell over to the left. OTL picked her up again and did a closer inspection but there were no bumps., bruises or broken bones! So, she got put down and off she went down the stairs but this time she was being very careful. Not May fashion at all, normally she flies down with her paws hardly touching the carpet!

This time it was one step at a time!

Down stairs she started off towards the kitchen when her back half of her body fell over. She stopped, got her back end in line and off to the kitchen.

OTL doesn't like it when us woofers start acting out of the ordinary, it normally means trouble!

So, just after the vet was open, there was OTL and May explaining to the vet what had happened. Fearing problems like a mini stroke or brain damage or something like that.

The vet on the other paw thought that, after a thorough inspection, she decided that the fall off the ramp might have twisted or hurt her somewhere and the falling over was the result. So, May got an injection of some anti-inflammatory jollop and a cuddle!

OTL got a big bill and instructions to 'Keep an eye on her'. So, that's what we are doing but a ferret sleeps about eighteen hours a day so as you can imagine, she doesn't do too much walking!

Now that all happened first thing before OTL and The Missus were supposed to go out for lunch at the local Beefeater with number one daughter and her partner.

Lucky for them they managed to get to the restaurant in time and headed up to the top level of the restaurant.

There, hidden under the tables were all TM's children together with their children (TM's Grand children) and even their children (TM's Great Grandchildren)!

As an added surprise, Uncle Alun and Auntie Glynis were there as well!

Wot a surprise!

TM was tickled pink and everyone had a super lunch.

There was only one problem, us woofers were left at home and when TM and OTL arrived back home they didn't even have any doggy bags!

Auntie Sheila had dropped in to let us out in the garden for a wee and make sure we didn't get into trouble!

As if!

TM says that there were loads of woofers commenting on FaceAche and asking after Miss May. A BIG thanks to all for taking the time to send hugs and kisses!

So, after all that, we are heading off to bed for an early night, we just can't take all this excitement!

See you tomorrow!

Friday is fun!

Hi Woofers1

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

It looks like everyone is on holiday today, loads of cars parked up that normally would have gone off to work!

Mind you, it does mean we get to drive down to the beach without being run off the road by coaches and trucks coming in the opposite direction!

Down on the beach the customs boat was still at anchor, so they haven't caught any pirates yet!

Still waiting for Black Beard!
We stood for a while but it still didn't move so we left it watching the ships go past, maybe lunchtime it will sail off towards the horizon!

Old Two Legs spent the morning messing about with 'Paperwork' so we got a chance to have a super snooze!

Lunchtime OTL got our rain coats out of the cupboard, so that was a bad sign!

Walking in the rain is not one of our favourite things!

We got down to the football field and it was still raining. I did some jumping up at OTL to remind him to get the ball out but the last time we saw it was inside the car, I was having a chew on the yellow bits!

Finally OTL dug the ball out from under the seat, locked the car doors and threw the ball across the field.

I chased after it.

OTL walked a little way towards the shore.

I walked the opposite way, deeper into the football field.

OTL turned and mumbling something under his breath set off in hot pursuit after me!

I picked up the ball and headed further into the field.

OTL mumbled some more!

It went on for a little while and in the end even OTL was laughing at the situation!

Holly on the other paw got fed up waiting for us to finish the game and had a poo right in the middle of the goal posts!

OTL spotted that and collected the poo just after finally getting the ball off me!

It was the same game on our way back to the car, throw the ball, chase the ball, chase Daisy, throw the ball, chase the ball, chase Daisy!

Wot Fun!

We loved the tale of Archie Babes walk and being woofed at by a mini Bozo. Next time threaten to eat him, that normally works!

See you tomorrow!


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

Watching for Pirates and Smugglers!

Hi Woofers!

It's us again!

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

We have noticed that there seems to be more container ships heading up the Thames towards the Gateway Project than a few months ago.

The Container Port at Thamesport doesn't seem so busy, there isn't the number of trucks hauling containers across the Hoo Peninsular, maybe they are all going up the Thames to off load?

With all this extra traffic we have seen the customs boat off Grain, waiting just off shore. Today it was parked just beyond the low water mark and mixed with the sun rise it looked rather dramatic!

Keeping an eye open for  smugglers!
 Just for a change the rain kept off today but it was still too clod to take the ferrets out for a walk and to be honest, they said they would rather stay indoors having a good rampage!

Rampaging wears you out!
 Lunchtime we were back down the sea front and Old Two Legs had brought the tennis ball so we had a game of chase. That is, OTL throws the ball and I run after it, then I run off down the field while OTL chases me trying to get the ball back so he can throw it and I run after it, then I run down the field and.....well you get the idea and it does help him stay fit!

Catch me if you can!
 Down on the sea front we saw that the customs ship was still on station. We have seen it in the past, moored at anchor, then, without any warning, suddenly took off and headed out to sea!

Not today, it just sat there watching the ships go past!

Enjoying the afternoon sun!
Back home we spent the afternoon snoozing 'cos OTL was busy getting the orders all packed and down to the carriers.

He is such a busy little OTL!

Let's hope we get some sun over the weekend!

See you tomorrow.


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

A Wet Wednesday!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, The Wet Woofers, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, today has been a Quiet Day 'cos we were up early and it was raining, not much, but there was rain falling out of the sky!

Being early means it is still dark and there wasn't a sunrise to photograph!

So, we were left with a little bit of blossom to try and make a master piece out of!

If you half close your eyes you can just make out the Moaner Lisa!
Looking across to Sheerness wasn't any better, in fact, not very exciting at all!

Did you know there are scorpions over there on a wall!
Heading back to the car Holly spotted a couple of rabbits in the picnic area and gave chase. Soppy Holly has no chance of catching them but she tried and just ended up being out of breath!

One day, just wait, I'll get you one day!
Lunchtime it was horrid, it was raining and we had to wear out rain coats, Old Two Legs didn't take the camera out with him 'cos he said that it wasn't that water proof!

Back home we had a bowl of chicken each and that was followed by our treat of a Jumbone Chew!

Let's hope tomorrow is better!

Bye for now!


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

We have a Killer in our garden!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a fun day!

We were up early again this morning 'cos Old Two Legs was hoping to catch the sunrise but although we saw the sun, it wasn't big, nor was it bright!

Ten seconds later it disappeared!
Then he got all interested in a bit of rose bush that was and is now just one branch sticking up in the air!

It's a good sign, one bud and two thorns!

The early bud!
 Over on the mud flats we could see the Oyster Catchers poking around in the mud looking for .....worms!

Must not talk with my beak full!
Back in the football field  OTL was throwing the tennis ball and I was chasing it, then I'd run a bit further away and try to kill the ball and strip it's cover off!

Rats, I didn't see him coming!
 That was it, back home for a snooze and a bowl of Doggy Scoff!

The Missus was sloshing the glue and glitter all over her creations when out of the corner of her eye she spotted a Sparrow Hawk on the garden fence ripping a mouse apart!

Yep! The Sparrow Hawk sat on the fence and ate the mouse including it's tail!

OTL got the camera out and clicked a few pictures of the bird after the mouse had been devoured!

Eric was trying to climb up OTL's leg to see the bird, so OTL lifted him up and the Sparrow Hawk saw him and you could see what he was thinking!

OK, send the ferret down and I'll eat him as well!
Looking at the bird, we think it is a youngster, maybe last years fledgling and it loves our garden 'cos there is always loads of sparrows and finches hanging around the feeders, instant food source!

Four Ferrets? Sounds like a whole weeks nosh!
 We are going to keep an eye open for that bird 'cos we reckon he might get ideas above his station and try eating us!

See you all tomorrow!


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

TM is Twenty One.............Again!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, it's happened again, The Missus has woken up to find she is another year older!

I mean, just how many times can you be Twenty One?

We cannot say just how many 'cos she has threatened to 'Sort Us Out' if we dare let the secret out!

Mind you, we all have to wear welding goggles when all the candles have been lit on the birthday cake!

Now, we have been working very hard on this, so, sit down and when you are comfortable, we'll begin!

Happy Birthday TM,
Ten Twenty One's a Good Game
Drinking Booze from Yer Wellie
Will get you a bad name!

There, and not a mention of a Wee or a Poo!

We got chased out of the house and landed up on the sea front just in time to see the sun crawling up over the horizon.

Not a big splash of colour but not bad for March!
 A bit later we spotted some Brant Geese flying low and close to the water. Had OTL had his telephoto lens he might have got closer to the birds!

Eyes Left, OTL on Parade!
 We had some fun at lunch time, Eric and May came out with us for a walk and they both found ferrety sniffs and proceeded to roll in them!

A Good Sniff and some Warm Sun on your back, what is better?
 Holly and I thought that was a great idea but OTL was too close to us so we had to wait until we got to the football field.

Once there we ran onto the pitch and both had a super duper roll!

Twin Rolls!
 TM has been spending the day looking at the loads of birthday cards that have arrived. There was even one that didn't have who it was from!

It was two poppy sort of orange flowers, lovely card but who sent it?

OTL said it was him but we know he was telling porkies!

Tonight we plan to have a Chinese Take-A-Way, so it's Plawn Clackers and Plawns and Flied Lice and anything else we can snaffle!

Of course, there is always the bottles of bubbly chilling away in the fridge!

See you tomorrow!


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

Snoozy Sunday

Hi Woofers!

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

I tell you wot, this mucking about with the clocks certainly messes up you day! I mean, the time when we should be waking up is replaced by a walk along the sea front and times when we should be chasing Flogs in the pond is taken up by snoozing!

Trust the Two Legs to mess it all up!

Down on the sea front it was almost the same as yesterday.........Grey!

Oh! Look! Sheerness!
 When we parked the car in the car park there was a motorcycle covered with a motorcycle tent thingy. Now this is new, we don't get motorcycles covered up and left overnight. We looked around to see if there was anyone camping on the sea front but there was nothing to be seen!


We left the bike and headed off for our walk. On the way back Old Two Legs spotted something in the water, just off shore.

OK, Wot is it?
 Lucky for us OTL can zoom in and enlarge the picture, clever or wot?

Look! A Bozo in a Boat!
Now, we are not sure what he was doing paddling his canoe on the sea when there is so much mist around but there are some strange TL's visit our sea front!

Hey, talking of Bozo's, lunchtime we were walking along when this big mean looking bozo woofer with a bad attitude came up to OTL.

Holly and I legged it and left OTL to sort him out but OTL knew this woofer and the woofer just loves OTL!

Why is it that all the big ugly looking Bozo Woofers love OTL?

Come on OTL, tickle my tail!
 His owner was keeping Bozo on the lead 'cos she said he was just too friendly!

Yeah, Right, rather you than me!

Glad to hear that Archie Babe can reduce the number of pills but the sharp needle every month sound very brave!

See you all tomorrow, providing we can wake up in time. OTL says it takes him all summer to get used to the clocks going forward, just in time for when they go back!


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

A Dull, Wet, Windy Saturday!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, we blame Archie Babe it's his fault!

Not only did he get a shampoo and shave before going to the vets but he splashed pictures all over FaceAche showing wot he looked like!

There was The Missus holding up a picture and showing it to Old Two Legs!

That was it, off he went to get all the ironmongery from the shed and the shower was prepared and the shampoo and scrubbing brush got ready.

First we went off for our morning walk, there wasn't much to see, in fact, there was nothing to see at all!

Well, that's where Sheerness should be!
 We stood there for a while and Holly did come up with the idea that we should have a roll in the mud to make the forthcoming bath worth it.

Unfortunately the tide was in and it covered the mud, so bang goes that idea!

We should have been earlier or maybe we could hang about for a few hours?
 Back home the ferrets were on strict orders not to spend too long rampaging as we needed the kitchen and bathroom!

First Holly was plonked onto the desk top and photographed, OTL says it is the 'Before'

Before and she reckons it looks OK to her!
 Then she got the full works, shampooed, depood and shaved to within six millimetre of her skin!

Of course, she showed off and danced about trying to escape but OTL had put the straps on and she was stuck!

She got the full treatment and ended up looking like this!

Looking Good Miss Holly!
 After the walk at lunchtime it was my go in the shower and I got the full treatment as well!

We didn't do a 'Before' and I really didn't want to do an 'After' but OTL managed this shot!

Just wait for me to find a really stinky sniff to roll in!
I stood the electric shaver for a couple of seconds but OTL knows I throw wobblies when he uses that, so he had to do my haircut with the scissors, not as 'balanced' but the scissors didn't scare me too much!

We plan to have a relaxing night tonight and tomorrow it will be OTL's turn to have his beard shaved and his hair cut.

Holly and I are going to share the job between us!

See you tomorrow!


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

Sunshine, for a little while!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, today it's been a day of two halves!

The first half was all grey and dismal! Not that we were dismal, we had a good run about the bedroom and bouncing on the bed, then Old Two Legs got up and took us out for our morning walk!

We missed the sunrise and only caught a brief glimpse of the sun climbing up into the sky!

I know it 'aint much but it is the sun!
 Back home again for a snooze after a woof at the postman!

We have heard on the radio that the clocks go forward this weekend so we may just catch a sunrise or two!

Lunchtime the sun was out so at half eleven we headed off to the football field. OTL had the tennis ball with him, the one I like to kill and skin!

He threw it and then kicked it and of course I chased it and then ran off down the field and refused to give it back to OTL!

Down on the sea front we headed for the beach 'cos it was all sunshine and blue skies!

That beach looks inviting!
 Normally OTL keeps us off the beach 'cos Holly loves rubbing her face in the sand and that gives her a sore eye which in turn gives OTL a sore wallet!

Today he let her go onto the beach but Holly got all excited and, yes, she nose dived into the sand and ended up with a face full of sand!

I see Sand!
 Back to the football field and another game with the ball. This time OTL was teasing me rotten, he pretended to throw it one direction and off I went like a rocket only to find I was chasing fresh air!

I turned around to see him throw the ball in the opposite direction!

He can be so sneaky!

There was the time he pretended to throw it on way and then the other and then in another direction!

That was it, I rushed up to him and jumped up and nearly shoved him over!

Throw the Woofin' Ball or I'll bite your kneecaps!
We had a good game but Holly just sat there watching 'cos here eyes were getting sore!

Back home OTL washed her eyes and got rid of the sand and then he put some more ointment in her eyes to get rid of the soreness!

Tomorrow it's haircutting time, well for Holly anyway!

I'll get OTL to take a photo!

See you tomorrow.


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

A bit of a Grey Day!

Hello Woofers!

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

It is still 'Grey Clouds' down on the sea front and this morning wasn't really made for photographs!

We met up with the Lakeland Terriers who were their normal noisy woofing ways!

Holly and I just stood there giving them the old 'Hairy Eyeball' but they still carried on woofing but they were moving away from us!

If they were any closer I'd twist their tails!
Old Two Legs works in the office and Holly and I have sleeping cushions we gently snooze the morning away but come lunchtime we have to tell him 'It's Time' to go walkies again and once he has cottoned onto what we want, we are off again!

I love it when he realises what time it is!
Today the sun was out but not very visible! Just for a change we were let onto the beach and the first thing I did was to have a roll!

OTL kept close to Holly Chops 'cos she likes sticking her nose into the sand and digging a trench!

That gives her a dose of Conjunctivitis and normally costs OTL a fortune in Vet Bills!

So, not wishing to spend all his money OTL made sure Holly kept her nose out of the sand!

Remember, sniffs only!
I found a tennis ball in the car and OTL put it in his pocket, so, when we got to the Football Field he threw it down the field and off I went, chasing the ball.

Now, I don't to this retrieving thing, I'm more of a 'Chase and Kill' sort of terrier!

I chased and then sat down to do some killing! OTL had to chase me around for a bit before I let him have the ball and then worried the heck out of him until he threw the ball again.

Then I killed it again and started to skin it!

Just stay there until I kill you!
Back home Holly and I were given a good brushing to get rid of the knots in our fur ready for a bath and a fight with the clippers!

I think that will be done on Saturday 'cos The Missus has a Master Class on Saturday and maybe even Sunday, so two little woofers could end up clean and bald!

I'm not sure what is for dinner tonight, yesterday it was Ham Salad (OTL's Slimming Meal) so tonight it may be Gammon Salad or Bambi Burger or even Steak and Salad!

Claws crossed!

See you tomorrow!

Holly works it out!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now, you know how clever Holly Chops is? OK, we know that she is a bit of a 'Piggly Pup' with her liking of food, but, she does sometimes come up with good idea's!

Yesterday was the other 'First Day of Spring' and a few days ago we were thinking that we had seen the last of the sunrise colours over Sheerness.


Holly Chops has been thinking!

Old Two Legs gets up at six to take us out for our morning walk and all we see of the sunrise now depends of the Fiddly Diddly things OTL does with the camera controls.

A Fiddly Diddly Sunrise!
 Now, what would it be like if OTL got up at five?

Would he see a colourful sunrise?

We reckon he would be on a winner. More than that, the clocks are going forward so we will be getting up a whole hour earlier!

Holly says that we will get some more sunrises for a month or so!

Clever little smarty pants woofer she is!

This morning we missed the sunrise but still ended up looking at the blossom.

It's Spring!
 We also found some more blossom brightening up our walk through the bushes.

We think this is Gorse!
Lunchtime we were down the Sea Wall again and the sun was shining and there was a gentle breeze blowing, wot a change from this morning and a few days ago!

This is better!
 Just for fun, Holly was dragging her tail sniffing the sniffs, so, OTL and I had to wait on the bench until she decided to join us!

Now that the sun has arrived, OTL warned me that the time is getting close when we will be getting a shampoo and set!

...but I'm getting to like this 'Hairy' look!
See you all tomorrow!


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

Tuesday, 20 March 2018

It's the first day of Spring and I try a Three Legged Wee!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well lads, we have been out today and can confirm, it's a bit warmer!

It's also still windy but there is no rain!

Old Two Legs was up later than normal and we ended up bumping into some of the early morning woofers who we haven't seen for a while.

OTL also spotted some Hawthorn Blossom on the tree by the side of the path down to the Sea Wall.

Spring is starting!

When we got down to the Sea Wall the sun was well up but OTL went all Fiddly Diddly with the camera controls and managed this shot.

Not the most colourful but full of drama!
Holly is suffering from Conjunctivitis again and it's lucky that OTL got two tubes of stuff for her eyes last time she went to the vet. So this morning we had some 'Eye Washing' which Holly hates, then after drying her chops OTL squirted the stuff into her eyes.

After that is was down for a snooze before the lunchtime walk. However, we got interrupted by the delivery man bringing OTL's new mobile phone, nothing
fancy or expensive but it was free, OTL likes free, it's one of his favourite prices!

Unless he is doing the selling, then 'free' is a foreign language!

Lunchtime we were off again and this time we parked up by the football field, the one with the moles!

In the distance we could see a couple of woofers and a Two Legs walking across the field. Suddenly one dog stopped, looked our way, then came tearing across the field at top speed!

It was that Bozo woofer who has fallen in love with OTL and insists on giving OTL a big welcome whenever he sees OTL!

Yo! OTL!
 He ran around OTL three times and then legged it back to his TL.

As I said, he's a Bozo!

It was still windy down on the beach and this time the tide was in.

Just little white horses!
 Now, remembering what Archie Babe said about weeing down yer leg, I decided to try waving one of my legs while weeing.

It didn't work, the wind was coming in the wrong direction!

'ere! My leg feels all warm and wet!
Holly said that only boy woofers stood on three legs and they were always being messy and us Lady Woofers should stick to four paws on the ground!

My leg's gone all wet and cold now!
So, that little experiment went all wrong!

See you all tomorrow!


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

Monday, 19 March 2018

So, where is the sun?

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, I don't know about you but we thought that it was going to be warmer today, I mean, those weather people where right about the cold front but they have got the warm front wrong!

We were out early this morning and headed down to the sea front. No one else was around and the way the wind was blowing we didn't expect to see anyone!

There wasn't much of a sunrise either, maybe the sun was too cold to get out of bed!

Not even a glimmer!
The wind was blowing us along the path and to have a wee was a bit dangerous 'cos the wind was trying to blow our wee onto our legs!

Damp doggy's or wot!
That is hardly worth looking at!
Last night there was supposed to be a big Aurora lighting the night sky but down here there was clouds, clouds and even more clouds!

So, no pictures of Aurora over Sheerness today!

Lunchtime Old Two Legs had to go to the dentist for a checkup and you know what that means, yep, back he came, all poor, skint and snivelling!

The dentist has done it again, what was supposed to be just a checkup has turned into 'A little remedial work'!

Let's hope that will make him forget about our haircut!

Crossed claws for warmer weather!

See you tomorrow.


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

Sunday, 18 March 2018

It's a bit chilly today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, after yesterdays fun and games we were wondering if today the snow would all melt and it would get warmer.

The snow is still here and the wind makes it a bit colder than yesterday!

Ho Hum!

Although there was very little snow landing on us, the roads were one big ice rink around here. We didn't even go down to the sea side 'cos Old Two Legs didn't fancy driving the car. You see, we are normally the last place to get and salt or grit when it snows and there are a number of rather dodgy spots when ice gathers and they just happen to be where there are ditches on both sides of the road!

So, that was it, we got a walk over the football field and across the field!

When we got behind the trees it wasn't so bad but once into the open it felt like we were going to get our tails blown off or frozen!

We have still evaded the dreaded wash and haircut. Can you imagine us with 6mm of hair in this weather?

So, we had to put up with being brushed and de tangled and OTL is still telling us that as soon as the weather changes then out comes the electric shaver!

One thing about the wash is the drying, you know, that jet powered 'Dog Blaster'.

We got some ear protectors delivered and OTL is expecting us to wear this thing over our ears to help reduce the 'Scary Bit' when he dries us!

I tried it on this afternoon, I was not impressed!

OK, this is one side!

And this is the other side!
 Then, just for a change, OTL took the small Hoodie off me and put the big one over my ears!

OK, it's bigger and it comes half way down my neck!
You know, I could wear this as a scarf over my ears when we go out in the cold. Together with my Flying Jacket I'd be right warm!

Well, it would keep my neck warm in the cold wind!
 OTL took it off me and I managed to get back under the desk and onto my bed!

This is much better and I've got my ball as well!
So, that has been it for today, windy, cold and snow on the ground, just a dusting but still blooming cold!

If the clouds part tonight we may see some Aurora in the sky, but being so far south it will be low on the horizon, so don't expect miracles!

See you tomorrow!


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