MMP you made me laugh when you said you passed the phone to the parrot. I've asked my dog to 'speak' at times when these phone calls come in but he hasn't got the vocabulary of your parrot.

Really sorry MMP.

Vets fees are horrendous nowadays. They have such posh surgeries and staff to pay that they have to charge huge amounts. Why are animal drugs so much more expensive than human ones? My son had exactly the same steroid after he had a bad allergic reaction as my dog.

We used to have a vet near us and he worked out of the back of a van in his drive. You drove up in your car and waited until he came to see you. He didn't have computors or nurses but you felt you could trust him. There were queues every morning. No appointments just wait your turn. He never charged for children's pets or wild animals brought to him.  Sadly he's retired now.

Hope all goes well for you MMP

Glad I haven't been wandering arround during the night. It's worrying when you can't remember where you've been.

Sorry if I seem to be wandering about. When I checked I was where I was supposed to be just up the road from Verdum near Perranporth but I had disappeared the other day. Perhaps I'd been abducted by aliens. I did have some weird dreams about little grey men and woke up with two strange marks on my neck.

Good afternoon all,

Welcome Pamela. You must be a lovely lady with a name like that.

I managed to put myself on the map yesyerday but on checking I'd disappeared. Who nicked my balloon? Back on now.

The daftest thing you've done in your garden

Quite a daft thing to do. I made an 'island' out of a pallet with milk bottles underneath for bouyancy as Monty did on GW a few weeks ago. I think my grandson was hoping I'd fall in.

It wasn't me who did a daft thing but my MIL who was staying with us in between houses. She was making a stew and asked my daughter who was about five at the time to bring some onions in from the garage. She brought daffodil bulbs instead. The stew tasted fine but my young son didn't eat his so the dog got his share. Within about five minutes the dog was violently sick and one after another we all followed suit. We realised what had happened and rang the doctor who laughed and told us to drink plenty of milk. There were no lasting effects but I did hear that someone had died after eating daffodil bulbs. My MIL and dog are no longer with us sadly but we often laugh about it now.

Good morning all,

Just listening to Radio Cornwall from Helston. Never been to Flora day but my children used to dance through the streets of Perranporth when they were in junior school.

I'll also pinch out my cosmos today, Chicky. They were really lanky last year and I never thought to pinch them out. Will also plant out tomatoes in the greenhouse today.

A bit of rain overnight but is dry now.

Enjoy your day all.

I'm only 22 Fairygirl as I told my grandchildren last year thatI I was 21.

He doesn't look like Simon Cowell, Dove. He wouldn't let the equine dentist put the gag contraption on so we had to give up. He was rearing and kicking his legs out and one of us was going to get hurt. She said the only way to do it was to have a vet sedate him but because of his age they might not be prepared to do that. Animals do cause a lot of worry. I told my daughter that when she puts me in a home to make sure I can't even have a budgie.

Good morning all,

The best time of the year. It's lovely to see all the trees coming into leaf. It's a bit cooler this weekend so still reluctant to get some things out of the greenhouse. I've had the sweetpeas outside for a few days so might plant them out today.

I've got two retired shetland ponies. (Can't teach them to moondance unfortunately) one is having his teeth checked this morning. He didn't seem too interested in his food  on Wednesday but has been fine since, so being an old pony,about 30 years old, wondered if he had problems with his teeth. I hope he doesn't want veneers or tooth whitening or he'll look like Simom Cowell.

Have a good day everyone.
