Oh no, thick thick Snow

So it was an inch or so.

Everything is relative.

Hate, hate, hate the stuff......although everywhere did look very pretty this morning.......

Our front garden

And the back

The ducks didn't seem to know what to make of it....there was that eerie silence from them again today. I have to wonder if they are still missing their brother and sister? They must have emotions mustn't they?

So to ease the gaps we let the 3 little ones in with them in readiness for integration.

Ebony is so funny......he/she is the BIG one amongst the tiddlers and goes in to the big ones with this attitude. She soon gets put in her place. The Pecking Order. There is no malice at all - just a little nip that seems to say 'There's the mark and you just overstepped it Squirt'. We love to just stand and watch the interaction between them all.

Observation came in very useful today too. We had decided to choose a mate for Dot. But he chose himself. We looked out at one point and there they were in the small guinea pig hut together. Awww.....

So we collared him and ringed (rung?) him so that he didn't get sold by accident.

Name.

I was keen on Charlie. He's a drake so it would be Charlie Drake. You have to be over 40 to appreciate that. Or google him.

Steve had the brainwave of Dash. Dot and Dash. As in morse code. This seems appropriate as Steve once worked in comms. So Dash it is.

And guess who couldn't resist singing 'Dashing through the snow.....'?!?

*****

There has been more music here today. I really didn't realise how much I had missed a keyboard. I have been working on The William Tell Overture (The Lone Ranger according to Steve) and The Hall of The Mountain King from Peer Gynt (Alton Towers). The kitties initially scarpered again but returned, so perhaps they have firm musical tastes? Who knows how these animals function?

*****

In my relentless quest to find amusing pictures and/or words I stumbled upon this. Which is neither funny words or pictures. It is a thought provoker. It is also one of my philosophies in a different format. At the end of the day nothing really matters all that much. so quit worrying.......

See what you make of it........
