Inkadog, you definitely have your work cut out!! So sorry to hear your lost your lovely Deedle - cute name, btw.

Dean the green-fingered, obviously!

Black cats traditionally travel thus, don't they?

Thank you Kate, I think I could even suffer footie if it meant escape from the zoo ;- )

Will be interested in your solution, Becks, I'm a great one for 'make do and mend'.

A Hurricane just flew over my garden, sadly camera was indoors. A much better view of it than at the Air Show yesterday!

Heyy!! Good going Becks. Best of luck with anchoring.

After dog walking and keeping Kit company while watching Paralympics (bet you didn't know kittens were into sport) I thought I'd have a bit of a tidy and hoover round. However, Pepper-dog put paid to that by coming in from the garden having been frolicking in the pond; he looked like a walking mud pie so had to have a bath. He leapt out at an early stage and shook himself so the whole bathroom was spattered.He's now having noisy play fights with Maisie dog because water turns him into a complete gremlin :- (
I want to move in to Kate's animal-free household. Now, if possible.

Many thanks Bookertoo. I shall indeed tailor the drinks menu to suit the feeders ;- )

Bookertoo, I think you're right to wait until the colder weather, I bet your caged fat-tubes will be popular then. Last winter I was given fat-balls that are encased in little green nets and took the nets off to make it easier, I thought, for the little birds. I had them in a feeder which is a spiral of strong wire.  When I spotted a squirrel reaching in and grabbing handfuls of the food because he couldn't get his teeth on it, I decided to leave the little green nets on after all. That spiked his guns!
I like your idea of making the food in tube shapes to fit the peanut feeders, I'll give that one a go.

Or Twinkle for short, Glyn. What a great idea! If no-one claims him I'll have to pass him on to a rehoming centre, much as I'd like to keep him. Unfortunately my two younger dogs have very strong chase instincts and would shred him if they got their paws (teeth) on him.

Your lazy day sounds terrific. I have much mess and mayhem to deal with, it's been building up for a while now and I can't let it get any worse.

Thick head, Dean - what sort of Chinese takeaway was it?   ;- )

Becks, I would have said definitely not sun all day or the plants inside will roast. Your situation sounds pretty good to me.

Kit finally kept still long enough for a few


piccies. Here's one.

Raining here :- (

Becks, my Dad was just the same. He always had just the bit of wood or random item that you needed and would come and help - even if you were 100+ miles away! He had 5 girlies to look after!

Glyn, we went to Bournemouth Air Festival today hence the trudging. Wish I'd thought to put a sandwich board on OH advertising Found Kitten. Actually I'm hoping he's not claimed for a few more days as I have my niece for two Teacher Training days next week and I know she'll just love him.

Dean, I shall certainly be larger when OH gets back with Chinese takeaway especially as we had fishandchips only a couple of nights ago. Still, after a tiring day trudging back and forth along Bournemouth seafront, we think deserve a no-cook-no-wash-up meal.

Kit the cat is still in residence. I'm trying to get a decent piccie but he won't leave me alone.

Amazing how fast time flies in ForkLand! I've only been absent an afternoon and an evening.

Off to the Bournemouth Air Show today. Full cloud cover at the mo. Hope it clears by 12.30 or it may have to be a taxi -ing display. (I tried taxing and taxiing but neither looked right. Gary's the participle man - may I have a judgement?)

Have fun one and all.
