Well, it's a Beach but not like we're used to!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty the Monster back again!

I must say, this good weather has lasted a very long time and with only one hiccup when Storm Hector passed us by!

We left little Miss May at home this morning 'cos of her bad eye. Eric didn't mind too much 'cos it enabled him to have sniffs in places she wouldn't want to sniff!

She is very particular where she sniffs, unlike Eric!

Today Old Two Legs got back into line regarding when to clean the ferret cages and the ferrets had left just a little more poo than normal 'cos OTL was a few hours over the normal twenty four hours cycle!

Down on the beach the tide was out first thing but I planned to have a swim at lunchtime but the tide was still coming in up the beach and to be honest, there was some scum on the front of the tide that even I thought was a little too mucky to swim in!

It might be a bit mucky, but it's home!
 Looking back on the holiday, that beach and water was just great but it's a long way to go for a swim!
Trouble is, it's so far away!
 Another thing is the grass, like it is almost the same colour as it was in Scotland, burnt! Mind you, with the amount sunshine that is burning the grass and the lack of growth, you don't need to mow the grass so often!
Yep! Looks the same as in Scotland!
 OTL took the camera out today and managed to find some Soldier Beatles on the thistles along the grass path.

Before too long we expect to see the Dragon Flies out and zooming about all over the place!

When that happens, OTL says that he may go off to Stodmarsh to try photographing the big dragon flies!
It's that time of the year again!
 Today when we let Wendy and Monty out for a morning rampage, there was not the hostility from Wendy and OTL says that spending two weeks in a smaller cage has forced them to be a little friendlier towards each other.

Mind you, that didn't stop Wendy from having a little squeak now and again!

They will end up being friends once Wendy gets over loosing Freddy!

See you tomorrow!

The Grass has Grown!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are, all back safe and sound!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty Babe!

Yes, late yesterday we arrived out the front of the house and it was still there, in one bit except for the smashed urn in the back garden where we also found a cats collar!

We reckon some pussy cat got beaten up good and proper while we were away!

The garden and pond look lovely and there were flowery stuff growing out of the cracks in the path. A patch of poppies have sprung up at the bottom of the garden where Old Two Legs laid down a bed of stones to keep the weeds away!

There were loads of letters and emails that have needed to be sorted and that's what OTL has been doing today, plus, Miss May had to go to the vet 'cos she has an ulcer in her right eye that is rather sore. She had to be left with the vet so they could have a close look and it took a whiff of gas to knock her out enough for a close inspection!

As normal, OTL came out with a bottle of jollop to put in her eyes twice a day and a bill to pay off the national debt!

We also got an email advising that Holly and I are due for our Vaccination and Healthcheck towards the end of July!

More money!

Down on the sea front I rushed into the sea for a dip at lunchtime but it wasn't the same as Scotland and the water tasted a bit muddy!

All today OTL has been 'Engineering' to get some of the orders out that arrived while we were away.

Holly and I have been enjoying some snoozys while all this has been going on and The Missus has Glynis and Uncle Alun arrive in time for the Kent County Show!

We always enjoy going to the show, the sniffs are fantastic and some of those poos are the size of mountains!

Off to see if dinner is ready, see you tomorrow!

All back together now!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran it's us again!

Well now, yesterday we cleaned the caravan and waved the vacuum cleaner around to get rid of all the sand and grass and Brambles Biscuits plus whatever else has fallen on the floor!

The caravan was all tidy ready for The Missus to arrive, only problem, she was many, many miles away and so was the car!

The hire car had been making a bonging sounds as soon as you got over forty five miles an hour, it's been driving us and Old Two Legs potty!

Well, yesterday OTL was looking under the bonnet and decided that he really didn't know what he was looking at or for, I mean, it was all computer controlled!

So he decided to shut the bonnet and he did with just a little more force than you would have expected the bonnet to be shut.

Off we went heading for Glasgow first to pick up the motor.

At or around sixty miles per hour there was no bonging sound, a firm closure of the bonnet had 'de-bonged' the car!

All it needed was a firm hand!

Well, when we got to the car menders we were told that the car was still being worked on and would we like to wait? OTL got permission for us woofers to come into the air conditioned waiting room where we got loads of attention, strokes and a bowl of chilled water!

As they were doing the MOT, they found that one of the suspension springs was cracked, so that was another little surprise for OTL!

Finally, the bills were all paid and off we went heading now towards Dumfries where TM was sitting in a country hotel, sipping coffee and munching on little pastries while waiting for us!

We kept on getting messages from her, like, 'Are you here yet?', no sense of time, that's her problem!

Well, to cut a long journey short, we got back to the caravan around twelve thirty, a little tired and in need of a good snooze!

McHolly was so tired that she didn't bother with her dinner, it was just too much effort!

Not me, I was starving and soon was ear deep in a bowl of Doggy Scoff' and didn't even come up for air!

The next morning even McHolly was still tired but decided that a morning snooze before dinner was the best cure!

Just a quick snooze of an hour or so!
 Me on the other paw decided that a dip in the sea chasing sticks would wake me up!

The only problem is that I tend to over do it a bit and found out that it got rather cold the longer I stayed in the sea!

OTL decided that I was shivering too much and we headed off for the caravan for a rub down with a Doggy Towel then a snooze in the sunshine in the window of the caravan!

After a while, me bits get a bit chilly!
 This afternoon the awning comes down and then we will be ready for an early start for Gretna where we have been promised, Plawn Clackers, Plawn Balls, King Plawns and Bolly, well OTL and TM can have the Bolly!

Now, as Auntie Sue has come back from the Isle of Wight, did she see any red squirrels? We have heard that they still survive there!

Archie Babe, stay away from the fox poo, it can be habit forming!

See you tomorrow!


McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran.

Sunday is for relaxing!

Hello Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran back again!

What a lot is happening to us this year! As you know the car has a sore spot and is getting fixed plus The Missus just 'Had' to get to Dumfries yesterday so she can do the Master Class for all the Ladies Wot Craft!
I must admit, it was a long days driving, all the way from Campbeltown to Dumfries and back again!

We had several stops on the way and one was at a place OTL had visited when he was into climbing Munro's, in fact, at the time of the visit he was with his Mate Miffy (Married to the Cat Lady) and they were looking for a bird called a Dipper.

They didn't see the bird but Holly and I had a wee each, so that made up for it!

We did see some ferrets, well, they looked like ferrets but McHolly took a close look and said they were otters and on top was an eagle, a Golden Eagle.
Well they look like Ferrets to me!
McHolly and I wandered off down the park a bit until we found a good place for a wee, it was almost the best wee of the day!
Ohhh! I really need this!
 On the way back to the car we passed the eagle again and after close inspection, we reckon that the things on the bottom were indeed Otters. Still, otters are the same family as ferrets only bigger!

Bet they do fishy poo!

Off we went and after a long time we got back to the caravan in time for another wee and some cold chicken.

McHolly was up all night with a Grumbly Tum and of course OTL had to get out of bed, get dressed and take her out. This went on until three thirty when McHolly was all poo'd out!

Mind you, I felt a little grumbly today so I made sure when we went out for our walk, I washed my butt in the sea!

If I wiggle my tail it washes my butt as well!
 We met up with three big woofers who came over for a sniff  but they didn't stay long!

Be Warned, I've got a grumbly tum, so if you know what's good for you, stay away from my butt!
McHolly Chops has such a way with words!

Most of the time we have the beach to ourselves and can do what ever we want, including falling over into the sand!

Oops! Fallen over again!
 Trouble is, Old Two Legs can soon spot when McHolly has been shoving her nose in the sand again!

It was an accident, honest!
Mind you, today has been wonderful as far as the sun goes, I mean, as Holly said, 'It Just Don't get any better than this'!

Perfect, just perfect!
We are off tomorrow to pick up the car and TM, with a bit of luck!

Bye for now!


McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran!

Why does it happen to OTL?

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran back with you!

Well, yesterday we didn't get to put a blog up, sorry, blame Old Two Legs for that!

We got a 4x4 Mercedes car which OTL just loves and he reckons it will do him until he can't drive any more! Problem is, the car and engine work very well but the car is full of sensors that monitor wot's going on.

We got sensors that monitor if the wheels lock and then the computer takes over and lets the brakes on or off to bring the car under control. Then it has sensors that monitor the quality of air going into the engine and makes adjustment to the fuel/air mixture to make it all efficient and sweet smelling!
The engine is stuffed full of sensors to make sure everything is doing wot it should at the right time.

A wonderful engine, just crappy sensors!

We keep getting sensors breaking and that was the reason we had to get the car off to Glasgow and the Mercedes men wiv the correct spanners to fix it!

OTL had to get a transporter down to the caravan site to load up and drive the car and OTL to Lochgilphead where it was loaded onto another, larger transporter and onto Glasgow.

On the way, OTL was in deep conversation with Mercedes, the RAC and Eurocar to try to get everything to click together!

Well it was a 90% success, hire car arrived on time, RAC got the car into Glasgow on time. The Mercedes people said they could fix it, but not until Monday!


You can imaging The Missus getting her knickers in a twist!

So, OTL is going to drive her over to a hotel near where her Master Class is taking place so she won't be late, then, on Monday the car should be repaired. So, it's drop off hire car, pick up our car then pick up TM and back to the caravan.

All told it just lengthens our holiday by two days!

Now, we don't mind that too much and on top of that we get to drive around is a sporty Mercedes while and enjoy the sunshine that is covering the Mull of Kintyre!

Today, OTL felt a little tired and spend some time seeing if he could get a ferry across tomorrow but found that the only sailing was at 07:00hr and didn't return until 17:45hr or summat like that and any way it was already booked!

There is another double ferry trip that takes in the Isle of Arran was abandoned as being the weekend there would be too many visitors and a space couldn't be guaranteed!

So, it's back to circumnavigating the Firth of Clyde and landing in Dumfries the long way around. About 250 miles there and 250 miles back, a whole 9 hours excluding traffic jams!

We will sleep well tomorrow night!

Today we had one of those Micro Lite Hairyplanes land on our beach! I mean, it didn't even have permission to land!

Mind you, it didn't crash, it just sort of belly flopped onto the sand, came to a halt and its wing drooped to one side!

It was a good job there was no one on the beach!
 There was plenty of sand for him to land, the tide was out and the sand was quite hard!
No, not Barbados, it's Carradale Bay!

 Holly had a close look at the Micro Lite and reckoned she could fly it with no problems, it was only the matter of finding a helmet that would fit her!

Now, Holly reckons it should have a jet engine instead of a propeller!
 Hey! Wot about this then? This is the super duper hire car that OTL has to drive.  The SatNav is like a big TV screen and you operate it with a round sort of computer mouse, OTL hates it cos there are no instructions in the car on how to set it up, so it is all 'Trial & Error' with the emphasis on Error!

It's OK but it would never tow the caravan!

It's OK but OTL says he would never buy one!

OK, that's all for today, a bit long but we are wondering just why is it that we always have a 'Challenge' for OTL when we go on holiday!

See you tomorrow!


McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran.

We go on an Adventure!

Hi McWoofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran back with you again after a fun filled day!

Last night it poured down but we didn't mind 'cos we were tucked up in bed snoring our tails off!

When we did awake it was all sun shine and balmy breezes!

Old Two Legs was up early cleaning the ferret cages while Holly and I stayed on the bed keeping out of the way 'cos first thing in the morning those ferrets just go completely potty!

When the ferrets are loose then this is the safest place to be!
 After all the jobs were done OTL asked if we wanted to go on and adventure?

Does a dog go Woof?

Off we set heading up the beach until we came to the small river or as they say up here, 'A Wee Burn'

Mind you, looking at the colour we thought someone had poo'd in it! That was until OTL told us it was the peat that made it that colour

Looks good enough to have a paddle in!
Once we had crossed the burn, we came across a sign post telling us what to expect at the end of our walk!

Dunno wot the Co-op or a Whelk has got to do with the walk!
As we climbed up higher through the ferns and grass we could see the whole beach and the camp site laid out before us!
It Looks Brill in the Sun Light!
There were loads of ferns along our way and at times McHolly and I couldn't see where we were going! OTL had to lead us as we hung onto our lead to make sure we didn't fall off the edge and land on the rocks below!
We should have brought our Ice Axe and Crampons!
 As we got higher we came across peat bogs and rocks. It was good fun dancing across the rocks and we didn't fall in once!
We had to be careful but in the end we made it across!
Finally we made it to the end and there on top of the highest point was what is called a Cairn, that's wot they call a Highland pile of stones!
The idea is that you add a stone to the top when you visit!
OTL says that he has added many stones to Cairns when he was climbing Munroe's, so not to miss out, we put our rock on top.

So, right at the top we placed our rock and we have called it ...........

There is is, right at the very top!
 Well, once we had got up there, telephoned The Missus to look out of the caravan and wave at us, we headed back down. This time OTL let us off our lead 'cos he reckons by now we should be careful enough not to fall in and bogs or off the cliffs!

Come on, I can sniff the way!
 OTL let us go in front to lead the way but we lost the path and had to make our new way down!

Well, this looks like fresh sheep poo!
As we passed the burn again OTL shoved McHolly and me into the burn to wash off all the peat that had stuck to our legs, McHolly didn't want to go in the water but OTL persuaded her in and she got not only her paws but her tummy wet as well!

It was a long walk back to the caravan and after a bite to eat, we fell asleep and were soon snoring our tails off!

OTL included!

We just love adventures!

See you all tomorrow!


Hi McWoofers!

A Plastic Bin Overload!

Hi McWoofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran! back with you again!

Well, Holly Chops has been sticking her nose in places she shouldn't and as a result, she got the 'Grumbly Tum'! You would have thought that after all that money the vet took off Old Two Legs Miss Holly would be a bit more careful!

Around five this morning The Missus was forced to take Holly out and Holly proved she got the 'Grumblies'!

By the time TM got back,she had the grumblies and it was all Holly's fault for digging her out of the caravan when she could be designing cards!!

OTL got it in the ear as well and as a punishment he was told to take TM into Campbeltown so she could do some 'relaxing shopping'!

So, off we went for our morning jog along the beach and both McHolly and I sort of 'Fell Over' and had to wriggle to get up again, OTL didn't see it that way, spoilsport that he is!

Oh Dear! I've fallen over again!
 Of course being so close to the ground when we fell over means we can spot the oddities like this thing.
But wot is is Precious?
 Maybe it is a Water Nargle Egg? McHolly wasn't too sure and said she would look it up on the Internetty Thingy when she got back to the caravan.

Unfortunately that wasn't going to happen 'cos we all got bundled into the car and off we went to Campbeltown!

TM did her shopping it the 'Nickle & Dime' emporium which is one of those shops that will sell everything accept food, but they did have some sweeties for sale!

Out she came with an arm full of Bits & Bobs while OTL had to carry these plastic boxes of differing sizes. OTL says it reminds him of a quotation he once heard, it goes something like........

Big Boxes have little boxes upon their backs to bite 'em
and little boxes have smaller boxes, and so ad infinitum!

Well, TM now has loads of boxes in boxes in boxes in boxes!

Back home McHolly and I were getting a bit hungry, I mean, we didn't have any breakfast and our little tummies were doing a rumble you could hear a mile away!

TM got the idea and cooking commenced, right up until TM decided to go to the car to count the boxes again and the smoke alarm went off.

Now, that alarm is loud and on top of that it emits a sound that goes right through you!

When it first went off I shot over OTL's shoulders and hid behind him while poor McHolly stood transfixed to the spot!

What the Woofin' 'eck is that?
It seemed that the world was being invaded by bleeping electronic things! Of course, when TM arrived back, instead of removing the item off the heat that was making the smoke alarm go off, she instead tried to silence the alarm by taking the battery out!

OTL did suggest she look to the cooker and the six foot flames that were sucked out of the caravan roof by the extractor fan!

Things do get exciting sometimes!

This last week or so we have been on a diet of either fish, rice and boiled carrot or chicken and rice and boiled carrots and to be honest, they are quite tasty.

It looks like we will be on them for some time 'cos McHolly Chops has got to loose at least one kilogramme!

I don't but am going along with McHolly as a sisterly gesture of support. The only thing I miss is the choc chip cookies and the shortbread and the twigglets and jumbones and all the other Doggy Treats!

Now we know just how poor Archie Babe feels when he is deprived of his favourite nosh!

I can't wait until she gets rid of the kilo then I can go back to a proper diet of choc chip cookies etc!

See you tomorrow.

Sally's Walk!

Hi Woofers!

It's McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran! back with you again!

Well, today has been a sunny day with just a little cloud but so far, no rain, but the forecast says there is a chance of rain before midnight but by then we will be tucked up with full tummies and snoring our tails off!

Back to today.

First thing this morning The Missus took Holly and I out for a walk on the beach, there was no one about at all!

We got back just after Old Two Legs had fallen out of bed and was staggering into the shower!

He decided that he would take Monty and Wendy out for a walk after finishing cleaning their cage but before taking May and Eric out!

Of course being ferrets they had a great time digging holes in the sand!

It's about the only time Wendy doesn't attack Monty!
 Mind you, Monty doesn't let his guard drop, Wendy has a habit of creeping up on him and giving him a quick nip behind the ear!

Now, where has she gone now?
 OK, all together now..................................SHE'S BEHIIIIND YOOOOOOO!

We don't have that trouble with May and Eric, they sorted out ages ago that she was in charge!

Don't stray too far dear, I don't want you getting lost!
On our way into the caravan park down a long and winding track there are some signposts pointing out foot paths that form part of the Kintyre Way which is a walking path for those hardy Two Legs who want to spend their holidays marching the pathways and tending blistered feet at night!

One of these paths also had a sign saying 'Sally's Walk'. Last year we saw this but never explored the path 'cos it was so warm and the sea was so inviting that we just didn't have the time!

This year we decided to investigate!

Leaving The Missus 'sorting out' her card making stuff we set off.

Now as I said before, this is part of the Kintyre Way and most of it is on the flat, so no mountains to climb!

To be honest, it is more like a forest path with a few flowers on each side of the path and tree lined in other parts.

A nice gentle path lined with flowers which set OTL's hay fever off!
There were patches of pine tree plantations which seem to fall over as a result of storms rather than harvesting!

Here be Nargles!
 Where the trees were scattered all about in a 'Natural' way, there were many different broad leaf trees including Oak, Ash, Silver Birch and Beech.

The path wasn't very wide but it seemed well kept, however, we didn't see any rabbits!

It would be OK if we could get off these leads!
OTL said he couldn't let us off the lead 'cos the were fields with sheep and lambs munching away on the grass. You think they would get fed up with grass, I mean, us woofers only eat grass if we get a tummy upset!

We got back to the caravan and OTL then took us down to the beach where we got to get off the lead!

I managed to get we half way up my tummy while Holly stayed up the top of the beach sniffing the dried sea weed!

What ever turns you on as they say!

Not sure what we got planned for tomorrow, TM said she wanted to get some more plastic boxes, Holly reckons there will not be enough room in the car for use AND the boxes!

See you tomorrow!

A Long Walk Along The Beach!

Hi Woofers!

It's McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporan! back again!

Well now, being today is Fathers Day we decided to leave Old Two Legs asleep in bed for an extra fifteen minutes! Then we jumped on top of him and gave his ear a massive big lick!

After the Ferrets got their cages cleaned out and they had a rampage around the caravan we got another run on the beach. OTL had the Throwing Stick and a new plastic ball from the ferrets toy box, we had a super game of Chase the Ball!

Being plastic and a bit heavier, that means it went higher and further than that tennis ball!

There were some Nelly Fish on the beach but smaller that the ones we saw the other day!

Holly Found a dead starfish, we knew it was dead 'cos it was cold, brittle and stiff!

Ere! Me legs fallen off!
I had a deep paddle in the river and I was looking for the salmon that were supposed to be travelling up stream. I didn't see any at all, so that means we have got cod chops today!

All I want is a little fishy on my little dishy!
Being on holiday has it's benefits, like, we can bully OTL into taking us for a walk any time we want.

Once we had enjoyed a little snooze McHolly and I did out 'Walkies!' and off we were again!

This time we went right down the end of the beach, across the stream and up into the rocky bits!

Holly got all big and brave and suggested we take off over the rocky bits and up to the top of the mountain!

Hey Lads, I go this good idea for an Adventure!
OTL and I had a look at the path she was planning on taking and decided it would be too slippery on the seaweed and rocks, so, this time McHolly Chops Got out voted!

Not on your Nelly!
We headed back along the beach and got a little ahead of OTL, in fact he was miles behind and to give you an idea just how far we were ahead, those two spots on the beach, well, that's McHolly and McMe!

McHolly Dog and McMe!
After we got back to the caravan, it was the ferrets turn for a run but MacMay and MacWendy decided they would pass on this walk and instead retire to bed.

Not so Monty McSporran and Eric de McFerret, although they didn't go out at the same time, they did get their run on the beach and through the grass!

Eric De McFerret McFerreting in the grass!
Eric started off on the wet sand but after a few moments the water seeped through to his tummy and then he was off like a cat with a woofer up it's tail!

Next It was Monty McSporran who was out for a little rampage. He started off in the grass, got carried down to the wet sand and rampaged all the way back to the caravan!

This is just great, a rampage through the grass looking for McNargles!
Monty reckons the best bit is when he reaches the sand and gets to dig as bigger hole as he wants, only he still hasn't got the hang of supporting the timbers that hold the roof up!

OK, here comes Mort MacSporran hunting for Nargles!

Mort just loves digging in the sand as much as Miss MacMay!

This afternoon the rain came back, well more of a drizzle than heavy rain but that gave us an excuse to have a snooze on the sofa!

See you tomorrow!


McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporran!

Shopping Day Today!

Away The Noo!

It's us back again, McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporan!

Well, we woke up to the rain crashing down onto the caravan roof, wot a noise!

You know, it even woke Old Two Legs up and he can normally sleep through The Missus sorting out her craft stuff, and that makes a lot of noise!

We headed out for a walk first thing, complete with our rain coats on and to be honest, all we could manage was a wee!

After the wee it was straight back to the caravan and onto the bed that was still warm from when OTL had been snoozing!

It rained for most of the morning and when it did stop we got a walk with OTL but only just across the road way, a quick wee and a poo then back to the caravan at top speed!

The shopping trip into Campbeltown was a bit boring, we couldn't get out of the car 'cos there were double yellow lines everywhere and OTL didn't want to get a ticket, unlike the locals who were under the impression that double yellow lines were reserved for parking on!

We didn't get any treats, no doggy shops! A Co-op and a funny Tesco's bolted onto a garage we found but as much as we asked, no Annette TL could be found!

Back home there was a 'Window' of no rain so we went out for a run on the beach and OTL brought the ball throwing stick. I twas great fun chasing the ball but I got carried away and gave the ball a good Mullering!

Needless to say, the ball is not feeling very well, in fact it felt like it was going to pieces!

A Chewing Good Ball but it's now dead!
Well, to add insult to injury, the rain started again and off we went back to to caravan! When we got through the gate Holly and I caught the sniff of a rabbit and rain or no, we were after it like a rat up a drainpipe!

We didn't catch it, the rabbit disappeared into gorse bush and that was it, nothing to look forward to except a telling off from OTL!

The rain had started to ease but we could see on the horizon, a big squall of a shower heading our way!

It's going to get wet again!
 Sunshine had been promised for late this afternoon so we might get a run with the ball throwing stick 'cos OTL has found a ball that just about fits into the stick!

Claws crossed we won't get too excited and chew this one up!

See you tomorrow.


McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporan!

The Day After The Storm!

Away The Noooo!

Here we are again, McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporan!

Well, wot a couple of days we have just had! Very strong wind and rain by the bucket load!

After all the, this morning when we checked, there was just one awning stake that had been pulled out of the ground!

It is still cloudy here but not too cold. I think we might get a couple of days dry weather before we get some more rain to wash the dust off the caravan!

Today The Missus has decided to slosh the glue about and has been making a terrible mess everywhere! You know, I have been having difficulty finding a place to snooze!

How am I going to roll over?
Mind you, Old Two Legs purchased, at great expense, one of those ball throwing sticks. It's just great! It means he can hurl a tennis ball for miles and Holly and I go tearing after it!

We had such a game this morning and even Holly managed to pinch the ball from me at one stage!

We had such fun that at eleven thirty I pretended I had the Grumble Tum and was in urgent need of a walk but as soon as we got to the beach I started to jump up at OTL doing my 'Throw the Ball' dance.

The big problem was, in his rush to get me and my Grumbly Tum out, he had forgotten the throwing stick!

I will have to reduce the 'Urgency' next time!

Still, we had the whole beach to ourselves and I even went in for a paddle!

Don't you just hate crowded beaches!
 All the ferrets went out to the beach, Wendy and Monty were not too impressed but May and Eric had a super time ferreting in the grass after racing along the sandy beach!

Ferret racing on the beach!
 This afternoon there were a couple of showers but we didn't mind, let's face it, we don't come to Scotland for the sunshine!

Tomorrow it looks like there is another load of rain arriving, so we will be going out in the car down to Cambletown to do some shopping, who knows, we might get some treats!

We were glad to see Auntie Sue has managed to control her iPlod Internetty Thingy Wottsit, we were getting worried she had fallen off the side of the world!

See you all tomorrow.


McDaisy, McHolly, Miss MacMay, Miss MacWendy, Eric de McFerret and Monty McSporan!
