Oh the heat, the humidity....we are all melting as if we are Wicked Witches!!! No house on top of me needed. At. All. Harki and Peri have taken to the paddle pool as if they are canine Thorpedoes and the actually like being misted with the spray bottle.
Yesterday they were invited to the cafe on the corner, very posh, very cool, for afternoon tea with Miss Darkside, Ms Stash and Sandra D. They brought them Schmackos!!! Despite this there was whining and panting and needing to be near us. I took water and Peri's tin dish, but there was a big bucket of water provided, and The Labradors felt very welcome. They had treats and water and shade and ever so many pats. The Labradors are cute: and they know it!! Harki was an angel and clever Peri carried her dish all the way back to the car!! A good time was had by all the grownups too: yummy snacks and real tea and amusing conversation.
We have other presents too, from Katie and Penny!! For The Labradors: tasty Lamb treats and tennis balls so good the other 24 have been spurned!! And for me the most beautiful silk and Irish Breakfast tea!! I drink lots of tea in the hot weather. Obviously we are all very spoiled here!!! I think I might knit this scarf. It will be green goodness personified.
Now I have a list of clicky links. The Internet has been awash with disgruntled users lately. The 'Blugger" fiasco, where it decides you can't comment, and my blog apparently wreaks vengeance in a similar way at times. It is just like the VHS/Beta debate writ internetally large. Why can't all the blogs just get along???
Want to vote in the Macquarie Dictionary's poll?? Go ahead!!!
How about the new Australian version of Monopoly?? Voting starts on January 8th.
Food for thought? Whether you agree or not with the opinions expressed, we are definitely living in interesting and nervous times. I feel more than a little paranoid.
There are still people making a difference. I promised I would link, so here it is.
MrsDrWho's new kitten, Cleo!!! Gratuitous Cat Photos now, what is the world coming too?? I am her Auntie 2paw, so I am allowed to indulge her.
Tomorrow or the next day I will have more photos of things I have made. I can also write up The Block of Chocolate sock pattern, no worries, but I expect I should finish them first!!!
