Afternoon all. Glad there is some sun about. We've had some here and I'm hoping it will at least stay dry for this afternoon's dog walk.

Frank, nice to see you here pottering. I'm sure you'd have enjoyed Olympic fortnight when some of us were spotting and conjugating new verbs - to podium being just one of them. It was positively heartwarming for an old pedant such as wot I are ;- )

I too was all eagrness to hear about slug-repelling on GW last night then left disappointed by the lack of information and suggestions. One photo of a slug-up in a brewery is all I remember seeing. Perhaps you are supposed to whack them with a sheaf of papers.

I have always loved greengages and would really like to grow my own. I've been doing some research but, if anyone has any experience or advice to offer: rootstocks, varieties, care and problems, I would value it greatly.

Many thanks

Flo

What a beautiful boy, Glyn. I love cats too but can't have one with my dogs - two of them are great chasers.

Very wise not to do pets, Kate.

Glyn, I sympathise, at least Pepper can't jump on the dressing table!

Becks, it's years since I had a MIlky Way. Enjoy ;- )

Jo, gute Fahrt (yes really, I checked!!!)

Yes, Geoff, he thinks he's top dog - but, in fact, I am. We have the occasional argument about that but I win because I can pick him up. So glad he's not labrador size!

I'm off out now so you'll be gone when I get back. I'll try and get the rain over this way while you pack the car.

Have fun. Missing you already ;- P

He has his moments but he's 'dogga non grata' at the mo. after waking us up at 2.20 am barking and not stopping. He spent the rest of the night in the car!!!

Gary, dogs are pack animals and if their owners - the rest of the pack - aren't around, it can be very upsetting. However, dogs that are used to going to kennels from time to time, can have a bond with the people there and like going. My sister's beagle leaps out of the car and rushes in to greet her old friends when she goes to kennels.

Flo, were you tearing pages out of the hymn books during the service to keep the kids amused?

No, not quite that naughty. Photocopied orders of service were plentiful!

Jean. when your moth has babies, may I have one please? I've never seen a cuter insect.

Becks, I have a Gizmo dog, called Pepper. He bears a passing resemblance to that moth, I think ;- )
