McDaisy, MacHolly, McMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret, and Monty MacFerret Here!
We have had a super time up in the Highlands, we have observed several different types of rain.
There is the Dribbly Sort, that is the rain that runs down your neck and gets under your collar and gets cold as the wind blows.
Next there is the Misty Rain, that is the stuff given off by the low clouds as they come in off the mountains and make you wet all over. Normally a good shake gets rid of it but if you brush up under a bush or some Two Legs tries to stroke your back, it then goes right the way through to you skin and that gets cold again!
After that comes the Steady Rain, that's the stuff that comes down and soaks you to the skin, no messing about, it washes through any rain coat you may have on and travels all the way to your tummy and down your legs, not a very nice rain!
Another rain is the Blaster Rain, this rain is normally coming at you horizontally, it comes from the sides and the back but the worse one is from the front! It's the rain that you can follow a rain drop that smacks into your nose and because of the force of impact, runs up your muzzle, over your eyes, around your ears, down your spine and launches it's self from your tail with almost the same force as when it landed on your nose!
We especially don't like that rain!
Mind you, the best rain is the one that is down wind and running away from you leaving loads of sunshine!
Now, we love being up in the Highlands, loads of new sniffs and especially the sights. I mean, we have seen plastic Seals outside the Sea Life Centre but no real Seals inside. Then there are the 'Out of World visitors. If you look carefully, you will find them all over the place, even down south where we come from. However, we saw this tourist posing for a picture and Old Two Legs was ready with his camera!
|How do I get a postcard back to Vulcan?|
|Can we send this by SMS or maybe WhatsApp?|
You just never know what you are going to meet!
At the moment we are sitting in the caravan in Gretna, The Missus has wandered off to the Co-op to get some Doggy Scoff for us tonight, however, Holly and I know there is a Chinese around the corner, so Scoff will be the last on the menu!
Plawn Clackers and King Plawns Tonight!
We arrived in the pouring rain but since we have been here the sun has come out and it's dry every where!
Next is a trip to the Designer Centre, OTL will have a look for some new winter trousers while TM will be looking at the Craft Shop!
Tomorrow we will be off at seven in the morning, nice and early so we don't hit too much traffic , being a Monday and all that!
So, we will see you tomorrow night, providing of course we don't hit any traffic jams!
Bye bye for now.
McDaisy, MacHolly, McMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret, and Monty MacFerret!
