Do you know where your pets are tonight?

My friends jack russell used to watch nature programmes, until the big lion came on, at which point, she hid behind the sofa.

Over the years, various animals have different reactions.

The cats would usually be found on top of the boiler in the kitchen (default winter mode)

Blacky the alsatian x labrador would be in her basket with some music on.

Sally the heinz 57 would get into a bed and burrow down under the covers.

Sheba the collie x alsatian would sit at the window and watch.

Next doors Dalmatian would run up and down the garden,barking back at the bangs.

My hellebore shooting star already has flower buds. Should I cut off all the leaves now?

Porridge for breakfast sounds good.

Is it really bonfire night already? My brain is still on summer time.

Some of the bulbs I planted in pots before I went away are already up. Dahlias are still flowering. No frost here last night.

Lots to do today. See you later, folks.

I spent a lot of time stuffing floating bags in my BCD pocket to protect the turtles. I drew the line at the sanitary towel next to the anemone fishes.

I've been on liveaboard dive boats in Papua New guinea, where the boat, with its engines, and water makers, and electricity, and refrigeration, had more modern amenities than the entire Island we were moored up against.

I've seen Kids in dug out canoes who did not know how to unwrap a chupa chup.

Kids who marvelled at a cold can of coke and shared it amongst six so they could all experience a cold drink.

A teacher who cried when we gave her a bag of assorted pens and crayons for her children.

I'm very grateful for what I've got, and thankful for electricity at the flick of a switch, and clean water that comes out of a tap.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
