We go hunting Brass Monkeys!

Hi Woofers!

We hope you are keeping warm!

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

Well, here is a 'First' for us, the village has been cut off from the world due to large piles of snow.

Old Two Legs said it happened before, in 1988, thirty years ago and we were described as the 'Beleaguered Village of Allhallows'!

Well, we ain't beleaguered yet, but it's getting close!

We have kept to having a walk in the local fields but the wind gets to blow straight in off the sea and when the cold wind, plus the snow and the freezing temperature combine, it's blooming cold!

It's just too cold!
We had a run down to the bottom of the field and a race back! Of course we beat OTL all the way back home even after Holly stopped at the Poo Bin for a wee!

You know, I would wee in the bin if I could get my leg up high enough!
Back home we were dumped into the kitchen sink and washed down with warm water to get the snowballs off our legs and tummy!

The laptop has a program that keeps a watch for 'Nasties' that could damage the machine and this morning the warning light came on and OTL had to do a complete scan of all his hard drives! Well, that took all of the morning to do and he had to work on just one computer rather than two!

He was telling us about a brass monkey set he had inherited from his father. It's three monkeys sitting together. One has it's hands over it's ears, the next hands are covering it's eyes and the last has it's hands over it's mouth.

OTL says that it is supposed to say, 'Hear no Evil, See no Evil and Say no Evil'. Well, holly and I laughed our tails off when OTL said that with the weather we are having it could be 'What was That? I can't Look and OMG, They've dropped off'!

Lunchtime we were still laughing as we headed off down the field again, sniffin' to see if we could spot any Monkey Bits!

No, that's yellow snow not Brass Bits!
 I just couldn't resist a roll in the snow even though I had my Flying Jacket on!

You don't get to do this very often!
 All this snow once every thirty years is enough really! Roll on Summer and a splash in the sea!

A look across the golf course!
 Holly did her trick of finishing her wee and deciding that home is the place she wants to be!

I'm all wee'd out and in need of 'De-Snowballing'!
That was it, back home to a warm paddle and off to bed for a snooze!

So, we didn't find any Monkey Bits but maybe tomorrow 'cos the snow should still be here for a few days. The Missus has cancelled the Master Class this weekend but plans to do it again later this month.

Now, we are off to see what OTL has for dinner!

See you tomorrow!


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