It's a Blue Moon, sort of!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, what a day, we've been out at the crack of dawn looking for UFOs in the sky and we thought we had one but the camera never lies and it was an aeroplane heading for Heathrow!

It might be a OoooFOoo!

Then it got closer!
We got home to find Holly's eye was getting no better, even though Old Two Legs has been washing her eyes every day. They were still sore, so, a telephone call to the vets and an appointment made for late this afternoon!

Lunchtime it was Eric and May's turn to go on a run about but Eric decided to stay in OTL's arms until we all got back to the football field. It was only then that he agreed to have a little walk across the field.

There were a load more Mole Hills and Holly said that it wasn't Moles but rather Ferrets wot made the mounds!

Eric got all upset cos he was being blamed for something he hadn't done!

No, it weren't me, Honest!
 It was Holly who pointed out that if there was some misbehaviour, then the normal culprit was Eric and he shouldn't get too upset 'cos it was his own fault!

OTL said that it couldn't be Eric as the mound had been pushed up from underneath, so it must have been a mole and not Eric!

Eric was pleased with that explanation and told Holly to 'Woof Off'!

When we got back home and put the pictures up on the computer we decided that the picture of Eric showed him in a good pose. So, OTL enlarged the picture and her we are.......

Eric de Poser!
 Now, we had seen on the news that there would be a 'Blue Moon' in the sky tonight only we wouldn't see it!

The moon is very close to the earth and today the earth will be between the sun and the moon. The sun will still be able to get some light on the moon by shining through the atmosphere and that will make the moon look red.

It's called a 'Blue Moon' 'cos the alignment of earth, sun and moon only happens 'Once in a Blue Moon'!

On top of that, when the sun, moon and earth all line up, it will all be below our horizon, so we wouldn't see it anyway!

So, the moon will be red and not blue and we won't see it and we don't think that is fair, so, Holly has been working on a picture OTL took of the 'Blue Moon'!

There's your Blue Moon after all!
We are off to mug OTL 'cos he has got Pork and Egg Pie tonight, with salad, so he can keep the salad while we have the Pork Pie!

Bye, bye!


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