Cold Start!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Wasn't it blooming cold last night?

I had to cuddle up to Old Two Legs just to stay warm!

We didn't get up so early and managed to get down to the just as the sun was poking its face above Sheerness!

Blooming cold but just look at that sky!
 When we got into the car OTL said it was showing minus three! I suppose that means it's cold and to be honest, we didn't need an instrument to tell us that!

Now, being a woofer we just can't get our brains around the concept of 'Minus'!

I mean, One, two, three and any other number I can understand but 'Minus' doesn't do anything!

You have either got it or haven't, but you just can't have Minus!

The beach was frozen solid and the sand was as hard as concrete, so that means no rolling on the sand today!

We were OK in our Flying Jackets and OTL said we looked like Biggles and Algernon, whoever they are!

Come on, chocs away Algy!
 The lunchtime walk was better, the temperature had gone up and we had lost the 'Minus' thingy!

 In fact it was so good that we didn't need our jackets even though there was still some frost on the ground!

This is still hard enough for a landing strip Algy!
We had some fun woofing at the Two Legs when we went with OTL to do some deliveries and when we got back, there was some chicken waiting for us. So that was a bonus and better than the Scoff we were served yesterday!

The ferrets haven't been out for a few days now 'cos of the cold and wet. They are let out for an hour at at time for a rampage around the house and only get put back in their cages when they fall asleep under the sofa!

It's a good job we don't fall asleep under the sofa and anyway, it's much softer on top!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Not a day for swimming!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

Wot a day!

Our first foray into the wild weather was about seven this morning, a quick wee and back in doors.

Well, that's the normal thing.

Not today

Today it was 'Stick yer nose out, engage reverse and back indoors'!

It was horrid!

Old Two Legs got us all dressed up in our rain coat and dragged us...........I repeat......DRAGGED US into the car and along the Sea Wall!

I'm not kidding you but there were 'White Horses' than waves on the sea, all courtesy of a strong North Wind!

Well, it was us suffering and OTL was suffering as well. The rain drops were being blasted by the wind and even OTL reckoned that the rain drops had pointed ends and were designed to kill at twenty paces!

We didn't take the camera and anyway there was no way we would hang about while he was clicking away!

Back home we curled up on the bed until lunchtime.......................the weather was still same, cold wet and painful!

We didn't hang about!

Like this morning, we retired to bed and snoozed!

Another reason for snoozing, Doggy Scoff! Holly reckons we should change our eating house and get our food at the local restaurants!

The only problem with that idea is we don't have any money and these restaurants don't take Bonio Biscuits as payment!

We are off to rob OTL of some of his dinner, well, we got have some fun!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Snow!

Yo Woofers!

Us here again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Well what a knight we have had, yesterday The Missus came back from the village hall complaining about a sore throat and being 'Short of Breath'!

She retired to bed early but by the time we got to bed she was doing that annoying 'Mini Cough'.

That went on most of the night and she kept waking us up!

I think that a cough syrup is on the cards!

So, very early this morning Old Two Legs couldn't stand it and up he gets for him morning shower.

You know, it was so early that the heating hadn't switched on yet!

It's OK about getting up early but it also means we are out before it gets light!

Now a run in the dark is always fun but on the way down to the beach, it started to snow!

Well, it ain't Dandruff!
So coupled with the snow and the wind and the rain, Holly and I did the quickest 'wee and a poo' walk we have ever done!

Back home we got a rub down to dry off the wet and headed off to the bedroom for a snooze to catch up on our missed sleep!

OTL went into the office and let May and Eric out for a run and while they were taking a break by resting in the travel cage, OTL told them about the quick walk and the lightening quick poo!

Eric was laughing his whiskers off as OTL relayed the tale!

Wot a pair of potty puppies!
We waited until the sun came up before looking out of the window, the snow was still there but it didn't last too long and by the time the cars got to drive up and down the road it was melting away!

The first snow of Christmas!
We left OTL to get on with some work before heading out again for the beach.

On the way out we noticed that the snow had almost gone, but we sniffed the wind and Holly said there was some more of the white stuff on it's way!

She has got a good nose like that!

Sure enough, half way around the walk, the snow started again!

That was it, home was calling and a nice soft bed!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

A Day for Snoozing on the Sofa!

Hi Woofers!

We are back again!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Well, the weather man got it right this time, blooming cold it was this morning!

In fact the ferrets all decided that they would stay at home today and let us woofers out on our own!

We let The Missus take the small car up to the village hall on her own 'cos Old Two Legs said that he fancied testing the heated seats in the big car!

Both Holly and I tested the passengers heated seat and it passed the test!

There is nothing like a warm tail when you are sitting in a cold car!

There were no clouds in the sky so that means frost on the grass and on the sand and on the benches!

It also means the sunrise will have some amazing colours as well!

We made it before the sun today!
Both Holly and I had our 'Flying Jackets' so we were not too cold and the frost on the long grass kept away from our tummies!

It also means I can get a roll on the sand as well!

Coming back we stopped at the bench on top of the hill and OTL got all 'Arty' with the camera and took a picture of the bench top.

Trouble was, he forgot that the large aperture on the camera means a shallow depth of field and you can see the camera is focused up on the centre of the bench and everything else is 'Soft Focus'!

Well, you can see the frost anyway!
We decided that OTL had earned a rest and as TM wasn't around to tell him off, we enjoyed a DVD until lunchtime when it was time for a trip down the beach again.

OTL had been thinking about the bench and when we got to it he set up the camera on the bench with an aperture of F22, focused on the centre of the bench again and set the shutter release to delay for five second, placed the camera on the bench and stood back!

Click!

Now, all we need is a sunrise, a few clouds and some more frost!
OK, the bolt heads in the foreground are not in focus but the rest looks OK!

As he didn't have his mobile phone with him, he didn't have his program to set the depth of field but it don't look too bad!

We took a look at the program and at the settings, the closest focus is 65mm which would be just the other side of the bolt heads and the far focus would be 2.149m, that's why the ship is out of focus!

Oooo! Don't you just love it when we get all technical?

Tomorrow we are expecting it to be a little warmer so the ferrets can come out with us!

Bye bye for now!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Woofin' Cold and it's getting Colder!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

I don't know what it is like your end of the world but we are getting to realise that Winter is really here! I mean, we are sort of in line with the North Sea and any wind coming down there has nothing to bump into until it reaches us!

This morning it looked like it might be mild outside, like, no ice, no frost and the trees gently swaying in the wind.

Holly and I were well up for a run but Old Two Legs made us wear our 'Flying Jackets' as if!

Then he opened the front door................WHAT?

It was Cold and Damp!

It was more than cold, it was Woofin' Cold!

It's a good job we have a heater in the car!

We didn't hang about on the walk but it was OTL who was dragging his tail, taking photo's of the sunrise. It seems that the colour capture on this new box of bits is better than the old camera!

This is heading down the path towards the beach.
 We rather like the colours of the sky against the black of the trees.

When we got down to the beach, the sun was just over Sheerness so OTL rattled off a couple of shots before shouting to me to 'Get Up'! You see with that jacket on I do enjoy a really good roll in the sand especially a sniffy bit of sand!

Just behind I'm having a great roll in a patch of sniffy sand!
We didn't hang about too long and were quickly back in the car and heading for home!

We made sure the chicken was in the oven before sneaking off for a snooze under OTL's desk.

We had a visit from the accountant geezer and while he and OTL were discussing boring stuff Holly and I had our noses deep in a bowl of chicken!

Our lunchtime walk was equally as fast as the morning walk and OTL made a discovery, it seems that the new camera is not so quick on the auto focusing. He took a picture of Holly and I and the focusing wouldn't keep up with us!

Maybe it was because it was just too cold!

When we stopped at the beach you could tell it just wasn't the day for a swim!

No! I'll pass on stick chasing in the water thank you!
Looking at the weather forecast for the weekend, it looks like it is going to be cold and windy but all the snow will be staying up country. So, we won't be able to introduce the ferrets to the fun of diving in the snow!

Maybe later in the year!

See you all tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

It's missed us!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

It's been a bit Yuck today, well the weather has been yucky.

We have been lucky to have missed Storm Caroline who has been doing some serious stuff up in Scotland!

Down here is was mild first thing but it looked sad across the Medway to Sheerness!

Not the most interesting view!
 Eric and May decided to stay in Old Two Legs arms until they got to the top path mainly 'cos the grass was wet and their tummies are close to the ground! You know, there is nothing worse than a wet tummy!

Back home Holly and I retired to the bed while OTL got going on his morning jobs, poo shovelling!

Lunchtime came and OTL was studying the weather looking for a 'Window' in the rain that was managing to make everything wet!

The wind was picking up as well but not 80mph!

I just don't do rain!
 Holly decided that the best thing to do is to get on with the walk as quickly as possible especially as Fred and Wendy decided to stay at home!

Out of my way, Woofer coming through!
OTL was trying to work his camera but he hasn't yet got the idea how to make sure the focusing keeps up with  us!

We have decided that you had better turn off your sound 'cos the wind sounds horrid!


We have suggested that OTL needs one of those pointy type of microphones that he got for the video camera. So, he is looking on the Internetty to see what is available!

Now, you know Holly Chops has been suffering from a Grumbly Tum and OTL has restricted her food intake to just Brambles Biscuits, which she and the ferrets love!

Well, Holly got promised a big bowl of chicken providing her tum was better today.

OTL did some inspecting of the Poo Bag he used to clear up after Holly and said that it looks like she has managed to get over her tummy trouble.

So, there we were, home again and looking forward to a big bowl of chicken.

Well, we got a big bowl.................................of Doggy Scoff!!!!!!!!!

It was The Missuses fault, she didn't get the chicken out of the freezer early enough!

Doggy Scoff............Yuck.......YUck........YUCk...........YUCK, Blooming YUCK!

There will be no cuddles for her tonight!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

So, Where is the Manual?

Hi Woofers!

It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

It's still mild weather here in North Kent. Mind you, the lady on the TV says that it is going to get colder tomorrow and something about Storm Caroline doing something at ninety miles an hour in Scotland.

I'm glad we aren't in Scotland at the moment!

We have been helping Old Two Legs work out what all the buttons do on his new camera, some we know from the other cameras but there are one or two new ones, like, a big letter ' i ' that tells him the setting but he hasn't worked out how to change the settings!

We did suggest the obvious, RTFM and just in case you don't know, it means Read The Flipping Manual!

It's an OTL thing that the very last thing he does is to reach for the Instruction Manual and as there was no manual with the camera he had to go onto the Internetty to find a down load.

That was great, except that the manual is 384 pages long and he doesn't fancy printing it, so he has downloaded it in the form of a .PDF file and keeps scanning up and down searching for the next bit he doesn't understand, only sometimes he doesn't understand the technical answer!

So far we have got to take some pictures of the ferrets, Holly and I.

This sand is rather cold this morning!
 Holly and I found this strange sniff which turned out to be one of those worms the fishermen teach to swim!

I know it's not moving but that sniff could shift a house!
 Eric is getting fatter, furrier and whiter every day! Just look at that face!


My face may be white but my tail is still black!
 We had to take some stuff down to the carrier at lunchtime so our lunchtime walk was a little late which really didn't bother us too much.

OTL had found out how to work the movie buttons but first tried the 'White Balance' on the clouds over on Sheppy!

Clouds over Sheerness.
As we went across the football field he tried out the 'Movie' button! The only problem is, this blog only allows a certain amount of movie and of course, OTL exceeded the allowance! Maybe we will try again tomorrow!

However, try this quick movie that sort of worked in the camera but we are not sure it works on the blog!

Claws crossed, click on the button!


I seem to remember that we need to upload it to Yoo Toob, so if it doesn't work, don't worry, OTL will just have to RTFM!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

New Camera's Here, Almost!

Yo! Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

It seems a little colder today, well neither pair of ferrets were too keen to go for a swim or even run on the beach! All they did was have a little jog at the end of the walk!

Sorry to see Archie Babe has got to get his butt squeezed, still, it will be all ready for Christmas!

Talking of butts, Holly Chops has got the Grumbly Tum and Old Two Legs has got a great idea to help her get rid of it. Instead of going to the vet and getting the Bunger Upper stuff, OTL is saying that Holly's inside should have a chance to get rid of all the bugs inside her tummy by cutting down on her food intake, especially treats and nibbles and all the stuff she normally gets to put away in a day!

So, he has decided that she is on 'Strict Rations' for a couple of days to see what effect it has. Just the Brambles biscuits and water.

Poor Holly, she just 'aint going to like that one bit!

Mind you, OTL says that won't do me any harm either! Wot? No Nibbles? No Advent Calendar Biscuits? No Cheese and Biscuit after dinner?

Oh! Wow is me!

OTL was all excited 'cos his camera arrived and he has been all over it looking at the different buttons and stuff while the battery charges up. Only one small problem, the battery won't charge!

Onto the telephone to Nikon UK who did the expected thing, 'Wot? Are you sure? Do you know what you are doing?

OTL then went into technical speak and mentioned High Speed LED Flashing, Residual Voltages and other important sounding things. Result was he has to send the battery and the charger back to be checked and replacement given. So, he could be without a the camera until next week.

Luckily he had ordered a couple of new batteries from Duracell and they arrived today, so he is charging them up before sending off the duff battery and the not so duff charger tomorrow.

He got them to arrange for them to be collected instead of sending batteries in the post!

He has put one on charge and the other he put in the camera just to test the camera and check on the settings.

Freddy trying to get some snoozing done but being interrupted by a flashing camera light!
So, it's all coming together and it won't be long before we get some photos back up on the blog!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

The Washing Machine is here!

Hello Woofers!

The Gangs here! Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

It's been one of those 'Busy but Doing Nothing Days'!

You see Old two Legs has been messing about with bits of paper to feed to the accountant, I'm sure I don't know what he does with them, maybe he eats them!

The Missus has been playing with reams of paper and card that have been delivered ready for the Master Classes!

The ferrets have been trying to get in trouble.

Let me explain. You see OTL had to take the old washing machine out yesterday and that leaves a whacking great hole in the kitchen which, if you are small and furry, you can disappear into and ferret your way around the back of all the appliances in the kitchen. Now, yesterday it didn't matter 'cos the ferrets were in bed when the machine came out but today, there is a big hole and nothing to stop a ferret from having fun!

OTL and TM tried to block the hole up but little May made short work of finding a way through the maze of wire and stuff and disappeared under the fridge in a flash!

It was lucky that the bottom cover comes away 'cos once the ferret is in there, she could go all over the place and even fall asleep behind the cooker!

Any one for roast ferret?

So, the ferrets were banned from the kitchen and the water bowl and some Brambles Biscuits were moved to the lounge where OTL immediately tripped over them an soaked the carpet!

Water and Biscuits were moved back into the kitchen and ended up in the bin!

The machine arrived at lunchtime, just as we were heading off for a walk but the delivery lads were in a rush so the machine came in and the old one got taken away all within five minutes!

The afternoon has been spent on more bits of paper and the washing machine is in the middle of the kitchen floor!

OTL has just gone down stairs with a fist full of tools so we can expect some fun and games when he installs the machine!

We will let you know how it turns out tomorrow!

Bye for now!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Sunday, 3 December 2017

Busy Busy!

Yo! Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Wot a busy day today, we were woken up far too early by all the noise being made by The Missus getting ready for her Master Class!

Old Two Legs had his instructions, so, we were set for a busy day!

Down on the beach we had a visit from a reasonably new woofer on the block and she was a sort of cross terrier and spaniel type, crazy as they come!

First she started woofing her tail off and next she tried sniffing my butt without the proper introductions!

That was it, I let her have the full 'warning woof' with snarls and growls thrown in as well!

Soon sorted her out!

It was rather mild down on the beach and the ferrets both had a little dig.

Back home OTL sorted out our chicken but it was all cold, TM just doesn't do it the way OTL does and it wasn't even crispy on the skin!

Mind you, after yesterdays Doggy Scoff we would eat almost anything!

In our garden we have a plant that needs to be trimmed every autumn and this year OTL has left it a bit late but today he not only cleaned up all the leaves in the garden, he also filled two wheelie bins full of the clippings!

He also scraped a load of leaves off the top of the pond and even shoved the grass rake down into the bottom of the pond to get out some of the rotten leaves, PHEW! WOT A STINK!

I can see that soon he is going to clean the pond out and get rid of the stuff at the bottom of the pond, wild life or no!

After that it was walkies time and on the way out we stopped off at the village hall with Eric who wanted to say 'Hello' to Auntie Di!

Auntie Di says that Eric is her favourite and we reckon that is cos he has a 'Cheeky Face'!

Back home again it was time to disconnect the washing machine and drag it out to the front of the house to await the delivery men tomorrow.

It's amazing just how much muck seems to have gathered under the machine, including bits of smashed glass from when TM has dropped glass things!

Still, tomorrow will be fun when OTL installs it all and we get to see our bedding blankets being washed!

See you all tomorrow.

Oh, by the way, there were another three bone biscuits in the Advent Calendar, maybe they change the biscuits after the first week?

Luv,

 Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Saturday, 2 December 2017

It's all getting closer!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well now, out we went first thing this morning and it was almost balmy weather! I mean, like, NO WIND!

And I'm not talking about Holly's problem!

The sea was flat with barely a wave and at times the sun poked it's  head around the clouds!

Today The Missus pinched the little car to take all her stuff up the village hall for a Master Class. It really amazes us just how much she takes and then doesn't come back with more than three cards!

We had fun at home. Old Two Legs finally managed to clear a space in the lounge and set about putting together a 'set' so he can take a picture for us to use on our Christmas Card, like wot we always do each Christmas.

If you remember last year, OTL had to take three pictures and merge them together so it looks like we are all in the same place. Well. this year he had plans and that involved seven pictures!

We all went on, one at a time and did our 'Pose' !

It was so funny 'cos all the ferrets were worried about was food and were looking the wrong way!

Holly and I were looking at food as well, in the opposite direction!

You know, OTL used up two freshly charged batteries in his camera before getting some pictures that just manage to look as though he could work with them!

Wot do 'they' say?

Never work with Animals and Two Legs!

Too right!

Next we had to fill up the ink pots in the printer. I never knew there were so many different colours!
You know he has Nine colours in his printer, ten if you include white, which really is 'No Print'!

Once we get the nod from TL it will be back to the printer to run off a couple of thousand for our fan club!

Last year TM said she should start making our cards around July time but when we reminded her she said it was 'All in Hand'.

Of course it wasn't and now she will be working through the night for the next couple of weeks to get them all done!

We had a look and a nibble of door two, there were only three biscuits in our door, mind you, they were tasty which is more than can be said for the Doggy Scoff we got served up with today, YUK!

OTL has been reading all about taking photographs of plants and stuff using Ultraviolet Fluorescence Light Source! Looking at the adverts for the light source we find it is also used to pick out dodgy pound notes and dog wee on carpets!

I wonder if ferret wee will show up!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Friday, 1 December 2017

We get to look in the door!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, it has finally arrived, the 1st of December, the first day of Winter!

We were out a bit later today but it didn't help 'cos the wind was blowing from the north and it was COLD!

At one time I thought I was weeing icicles!

The ferrets decided to stay in the ferret bag and have a cuddle with Old Two Legs left hand 'cos it was like a hot water bottle! Mind you, OTL got them out as we got close to the car but they both rushed back to the bag and climbed back in!

When we got home they had a rampage around the house ducking and dooking all over the place and saying that the inside of the house is certainly preferable to a cold sandy beach!

OTL got confirmation that they had found a camera so he had to get his credit card out and pay the nice lady on the other end of the telephone line.

Poor OTL didn't know whether to laugh or cry so he just had a little snivel and a look at the instruction manual and in the end he cheered up! Now he has something to look forward to on Monday!

Lunchtime comes and there is blue sky outside but we don't get caught out on that one, OTL gets wrapped up in his big warm coat and pulled the ear flaps down on his woolly hat!

It was still cold but the ferrets decided to stay in the bag until we got back to the football field where the trees and bushes blocked the wind. Both Freddy and Wendy enjoyed a little jog across the field until they got to the car, it was then that they jumped into OTL's arms again and snuggled down until they got back into the travelling cage where OTL had put some big soft blankets.

Back home it was time for our treat!

Day one of the Advent Calender!

OTL made a bit of a song and dance getting the wrapping off and opening the first door, then there was the inside which was all sealed up as well! Finally we found out how to get in, poke it with your claw!

Inside were three little bone shaped biscuits looking the same colour as Choc Chip Cookies, but smaller and looking bone shaped as I said before.

They didn't last too long, Holly and I chomped them down in no time at all!

Now, what is behind door number two?

The ferrets offered to dig into the back of the box to find out for us but we reckon they might just have a nibble and then run off not only with the treat but both boxes!

We'll let you know tomorrow!

Bye bye for now.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Snow? Wot Snow?

Yo1 Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here again!

Hey! We were told it was going to get very cold and all manner of nasty's were going to happen to the weather.

Wot did we get?

A cold wind!

I mean, we were looking forward to rolling the ferrets in the snow and throwing Snow Balls at Old Two Legs and of course eating some of the snow, but not the yellow snow!

Clouds with sunshine poking through the clouds and a bit of a draught!

OTL has been busy today delivering stuff and having 'Meetings' and generally doing boring stuff!

Holly got into trouble, you see, OTL went out and left us to look after the place. Being such good guard dogs, Holly and I spotted a cat walking across the front of the house and we both jumped up at the window, unfortunately there was a net curtain between us and the window and Holly's claw got caught in the curtain and managed to tear it a bit, well, maybe a bit more than a bit, a big tear!

The Missus was not happy and told Holly off! Then, when OTL got back, she told him off as well!

It's good news that Archie Babes Grumbly Tum has got better. That Pro-Kolin is magic stuff, sets like concrete and dries in double quick time! Mind you, you have to be careful 'cos if you have too much you might explode!

Now, that would be messy!

Hey! Did you know that tomorrow is officially the First Day of Winter!

We have got our Flying Jackets ready in case the wind gets any colder and OTL is searching for his gloves.

The ferrets all have super fluffy coats but they still show off about going out in the wind! Holly and I reckon that they would rather stay in doors rampaging around the house instead of getting a cold blast up their tails!

It's OK for them, just think about us then, we are due for a trim soon, in time for Christmas and there is nothing worse than a cold wind blowing the wrong way when you got a 'Short Back and Sides'!

OTL is still on the salads and cold meat diet, so far he has lost 5Kg but he doesn't look any slimmer, his belly still sticks out and Holly says that it is bigger than Freddy's and Freddy is supposed to have a big tummy!

See you tomorrow, if we survive, Doggy Scoff again!

One good thing about tomorrow, we can open the first door on out Advent Calender, tasty or wot!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

OTL has a Surprise!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Wot a freezingly cold, wind up yer tail day it has been!

When we went out this morning the ferrets refused to get down from Old Two Legs arms until we were 50 yards from the car!

Even then it was a quick dash and as soon as OTL stopped the ferrets ran back to him, jumped into his arms and told him to 'Hurry Up'!

They can get so demanding!

Lunchtime Wendy and Freddy refused to wake up or even get out from under the blanket where they were snoozing! So that was it, just us and OTL to brave the North Wind!

When we got back OTL had to go out to do some work at a customers place, checking their radio system. When he came back we gave him the 'Woofers Welcome' with a big wet licking behind his ears!

There was some other work he had to do but half way through it he got a telephone call from Nikon!

Seems they have run out of rubber covers for his camera 'cos it is so old and they have stopped making spares for it!

Oh dear! OTL was not a happy puppy 'cos that size camera was just right for sticking in the ferret bag when we go out walkies and it also fitted the astronomy telescope just right. So, after discussions with the lady on the phone, OTL found that they offer reconditioned cameras at 'reasonable prices'.

Now OTL is fond of 'reasonable prices' but the first couple of cameras he felt were not reasonable enough to tempt him!

So, down the list he went and found a camera that would do what he wanted and at a price that didn't make him cry, too much!

So, the lady has gone off to make sure they have a camera in the 'Reconditioned Stock' drawer and she will send an email later next week.

OTL says that it will have to be his Christmas Present for this year but he says that we can have a go with it if we are good puppies!

We got chicken today! OTL has been promised a curry tonight, so that should keep us all warm!

Tomorrow they are talking about freezing weather and ice and frost!

Mind you, it's not all bad, they didn't say anything about snow!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Getting ready for Winter.

Yo! Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Now we don't think that Mrs Sue was playing the game by reading out the Christmas Shopping List before Christmas!

We were trying to keep it a surprise for The Missus!

Now, we wouldn't think of letting Old Two Legs know that he has a new pair of gardening gloves for Christmas!

It wouldn't be fair!

OTL decided to keep the washing machine on order 'cos the old machine that we have had for in excess of ten years is making a noise like a jet engine on full throttle!

We are taking bets on it lasting until Sunday when OTL has to dismantle it and put it outside for the delivery men to take away.

Now that Winter is almost upon us, the ferrets are all getting their Winter Coats. Miss May looks like a big ball of squishy fur! Freddy de Ferret has just got fatter and his fur has got thicker. Wendy seems not to have changed yet, mind you, she has always been a bit 'Puddneney' !

Eric de Ferret has had the biggest change. He has put on a lot of weight and his tail is the most glorious black and thick with hair. His face has gone from a 'Dark Polecat' look up to almost a Champagne Ferret look!

Of course, we had Holly singing 'Champagne Charlie Is My Name' just to wind Eric up!


If it spreads any further I'll look like Miss May!
Nowadays, when ever we see Eric he has his nose inside the feeding bowl. The Ferret Hobs always get fatter over Winter, getting ready for the mating season when the fight for control over breeding rights! Mind you, as all of the ferrets have been 'Done' there is no breeding, just getting fatter!

Bit like OTL really!

Food just seems to taste better when the weather is colder!
 Holly says that Eric could carry on and we could end up with a white ferret, just like Snowflake!

Only problem is, he doesn't have red eyes!

Do I look good or wot!
 It seems to be getting colder all the time, you can tell Winter is coming, in fact, according to Holly Chops who knows all this stuff, Winter officially starts on December 1st, so watch out, on the first it could snow and we may even get icebergs in our pond!

Yesterday we got a big bowl of chicken but today it is back to Doggy Scoff, you know a woofer could stave if he had to survive on Doggy Scoff!

By the way, we haven't got the camera back yet, OTL has used the big camera indoors.

OTL has been looking at some Christmas Clothes but can't make up his mind on what to wear for the Christmas Card, so it looks like it will be us Woofers again!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

We are in trouble and so is OTL!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

We have been working hard today, well, Old Two Legs has been and we have been keeping him company by staying out of the way and under his desk!

You see, yesterday we just happened to let it slip that OTL had got The Missus Christmas Present and it was going to be delivered soon. How were we supposed to know that someone would get in touch with TM via the Face Ache webby pages and let on that a new washing machine was due!

TM had words with OTL and sort of told him that she wanted a 'Surprise' Christmas present and not one that had been discussed and known about by all of her 'Mates' on Face Ache!

OTL hasn't said much today, well, he thought it was a good present but it looks like he was in trouble all the same.

We have now ordered up a new present for TM, in fact two presents!

We are not sure how he is going to wrap it up so you can't tell what it is but with a bit of packing from the Tesco plastic bags and some bubble wrap we should be able to hide it!

The second present we can hide by folding it up and putting it in a Tesco Plastic bag, she will never guess what it is!

Now, we don't want anyone telling her what she has got as it will spoil the surprise 'cos not everyone would gets a new ironing board and a silver cover for Christmas!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

TM is Home, Again!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

It was funny last night, not enough room for us on the bed, The Missus was taking up too much room!

Holly and I got kicked off the bed twice and had to go into the office to get a snooze!
Old Two Legs was complaining that the duvet had legs and was trying to move over the side of the bed where TM was sleeping!

It was a case of 'Up Early' 'cos there was a 'Master Class' on at the village hall so in the early hours all the lights were on and TM was clumping about in the store room and marching up and down the stairs!

Yep! TM is back!

It was dark when we headed off to the beach and both Eric and May said it was just too cold and windy to have a run and stayed in OTL's arms until we got close to the car park when they agreed to run the last hundred yards or so!

Lunchtime we were back down the beach and again Wendy and Freddy said they didn't want a run on the beach 'cos the sand was too wet and cold and the wind was blowing in the wrong direction, like, up their tails!

Freddy did have a run across the football field with Miss Wendy leading the way back to the car!

After dropping us and the ferrets back home OTL took the car up to the hall so TM can load up all her stuff then he had to walk all the way back!

We were looking forward to some nice Crispy Chicken but when we looked in the bowl it was Doggy Scoff!

Yep, TM is Back!

We think that OTL is trying to get in TM's good books 'cos he has just ordered up a new clothes washer for delivery before Christmas, maybe it is her Christmas Prezzie!

Now, Archie Babe, I don't think it was a good idea to miss out on a plate of gammon that couldn't fly! I mean, in our house there is a Golden Rule, if it's on the floor then we get first dibs, unless there is glass on the floor that might do us harm!

Archie Babe, you are getting too slow! How's a woofer going to keep his strength up on these cold days?

We are off to watch the F1 Racing now that TM is back and OTL is counting his pocket money to see if he can afford a new pair of socks next week 'cos the current washing machine has a habit of ripping the heels off!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

She's Back!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

Last night we managed to get all the crumbs up from the carpet and Freddy found a carrot end under the chair Old Two Legs likes to use!

I found a Teeth Cleaning Chew up in bedroom, it looks like the ferrets tried to hide it in one of OTL's shoes!

He would have had a surprise if he tried to put his paws in there!

Holly still had a Grumbly Tum and she managed to get OTL up three times last night but today, after a Grumbly start seems to be OK. We were out early for a walk and there was frost all over the cars so we took the big car 'cos that warms up quicker!

The ferrets decided that they would rather have a cuddle than a walk on the beach so OTL had an arm full of ferrets and didn't bother with the camera!

Mind you it was still too dark to take a picture unless you had a tripod to mount the camera on!

After the cage cleaning we headed off to collect Zoe and Paul who have been in New York for the past week 'Christmas Shopping'!

It's alright for some, mind you it might be a bit of a problem if we all wanted to go, just think of the paperwork!

We went straight to Heathrow and picked them up and took them back to their house where The Missus has been baby sitting while they've been away.

After off loading all the cases the car then got loaded up with all TM's card making stuff that when it all got put in the car there was very little for Holly and I!

Finally we were off and back home. We got stuck in a couple of traffic jams which were caused be too many people out shopping!

In the end we drove just over two hundred miles there and back!

TM seemed happy to be home especially as she had some parcels to open up, (Card Stuff) and tomorrow she is off to a Master Class up at the village hall so we can settle down to watch the F1 racing with OTL and big bag of nibbles!

We are still waiting for the Nikon Engineer to get a quote together so we reckon the camera has another weeks holiday before it comes back to us!

Tomorrow OTL says we will try to get the 'Christmas Card Photo' done, trouble is, he hasn't any plan yet and the ferrets don't help 'cos they keep saying that they don't to share the picture with each other! They can be a real problem sometimes!

I suppose OTL will be looking for Christmas Hats or Scarves or even a cardboard box of pretend snow, now that will be fun!

See you all tomorrow, TM has just cooked our chicken, don't tell her but she doesn't do Crispy Skin Chicken not like OTL does!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Friday and have we got some tidying up to do!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here again!

After our week with Old Two Legs we have got to get the house back to a 'Normal' state. You see, we have been having fun sort of not doing much about the Bonio Biscuit Crumbs and the other bits of nibbles that have managed to find their way into the corners of the sofa and on the carpets and in the bed and under the pillows!

Holly managed to hide two Teeth Cleaning chews under the duvet but the ferrets found those and hid them in the bathroom where I found them and hid them under my cushion in OTL's office where Holly found them and stashed them under the stairs where Wendy found them and moved them both to under the sofa!

So, you see, we got a load of de crumbing to do!

Holly Chops has not felt very well today 'cos last night she enjoyed a carrot that OTL had skinned for her but overnight she managed to be sick in several places and now, not only has she got a Grumbly Tum but she also has a Grumbly Bum and we are almost running out of cloths with which OTL can clean her butt!

Holly is a sad looking puppy, but it hasn't stopped her chewing on my Bonio this afternoon!

I can see that she will be getting OTL up tonight so she can go for a wander up the back of the garden!

Many, Many times!

We have been out delivering this afternoon and we had to stop several times 'cos Holly needed to 'Go'. It was a bit of a problem when there was a load of traffic!

Tomorrow we collect The Missus and bring her back but we won't be getting too close to her 'cos she has picked up one of those 'Children Colds' they are the sort that the children pass off but seem to reduce grown ups to a snotty gibbering wreck for two or three weeks!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

How many colours in a Rainbow?

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Now, we have been so busy today. We were up early this morning, mainly 'cos Holly Chops had a dream where she thought someone was trying to break in the house so she sprang into 'Woof Off' mode!

There wasn't anyone really and Old Two Legs had to get up and have a look out the window and go with Holly downstairs to the front door which Holly thought had been ripped off it's hinges!

It was all quiet, so back to bed we all went but at four in the morning we didn't go back to sleep and instead we all took it in turn to tell jokes!

We were out early for our walk and it was a good job we were 'cos there was a storm cloud chasing a rainbow down the River Thames.

Now normally there are reckoned to be seven colours in a rainbow but, as Holly suggested, there were two others, Infra Red and Ultra Violet!

Hey says OTL, I've got an Infra Red camera and so he tried to catch it by clicking away when ever the rainbow got brighter!

Mmm, not exactly in your eye colours!
 We carried on walking back to the car and the rain started to drip down and the rainbow came up a bit brighter and closer.

Still not mind blowingly interesting!
 Further on, just around the corner from the car park it looked a lot closer.

On the left of the rainbow you can see a band.
 If you look on the left of the rainbow you can see the red band and after that there is a darker band, Infra Red?

On the right of the colours you can see violet but we can't see anything else.

As a bonus, there is a second rainbow forming further to the right.

Exciting stuff hey?

We got home just in time for a delivery of stuff that had to be delivered today, so we all piled into the car and set off to South London.

After delivering it all we headed back home but stopped off at Purley Way where there is a massive grassy area next to what used to be Croydon Airport. OTL reckons he can remember watching the planes landing and taking off. Holly was interested in that and asked if the planes had two wings and a canvas covering over the fuselage and wings!

It surprised Holly when OTL said that he could remember some planes like that but mostly they were aluminium!

You know OTL is really old!

Crispy Chicken again today, OTL got the chicken bits out of the freezer last night!

We were glad to see that Archie Babe still has his butt!

Why do you have to give an arm full of blood before you have an operation? Can't be much good those doctors, our vets don't need spare blood, they just dive in and out and it's all finished in no time!

See you all tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Pheew! It's getting warmer all the time!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!

Have you noticed how warm it is? We all had to stop for a drink in the car on the way out and the way back!

That includes the ferrets as well!

Miss May has been playing with the settings on the camera and now reckons she looks like a 'White Beach Shark'!

It's a May Type White Beach Shark!
Poor Eric looks just the same really, you see he doesn't really reflect too much Infra Red light and ends up looking like a Teddy Bear in Soft Focus!

Back home May decided she would head off to the sofa for a snooze while Young Eric played 'Chase The Ferret' with Old Two Legs. It's a game where OTL grabs Eric as he rushes past and turns Eric onto his back and tickles his tummy, which makes Eric laugh his tail off!

Then, when Eric is allowed up, he rushes over to OTL and 'Bong's' his nose on OTL's arm and runs away again!

They both think it is a great game and it goes on for about thirty minutes until Eric get too tired and hides under the sofa or OTL has to answer the phone 'cos a customer wants to order something!

When Little Snowflake first arrived OTL used to take her to the beach and let her have a run around off the lead. He would squeak the rubber ball and she would chase him on the beach and once she got him, she would climb up inside his jacket and down his arms and fall out at his cuff's!

They both thought it a great game.

When Freddy heard this he wanted to have a game off the lead but he said he wouldn't chase after OTL!

The only problem is that nowadays there are too many woofers on the Sea Wall and a ferret on the loose might be just too much of a temptation for a woofer, especially some of the terrier type of woofers we see!

Maybe when we are on holiday and on that big beach and The Missus is around as 'Backup', we might have a go!

Until then......................


These leads don't 'arf rub on your nose!
 Down on the mud flats we often see some Little Egret fishing for crustaceans and we wondered if the IR camera would do anything to its body, just like Miss May.

Unfortunately OTL only had a 35mm lens but when we zoomed right in on the computer there was no difference to the bird either through the camera or using our eyes!

Everything is affected except the bird!
We are really making little Piggy's of ourselves, as you know, yesterday OTL brought two packs of chicken bits and he has promised to cook them up today. Yummy! Crispy Chicken Skins again!

The only down side is that tomorrow we will have to have Doggy Scoff!

Still, it was good while it lasted!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

It's Crispy Chicken again!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

This morning there was a spectacular sunrise, it was almost a total coverage of red sky and a little bit of countryside.

It was so spectacular that Old Two Legs stopped by the side of the road and took a picture.

It was all glorious up till then, 'cos we just had to look at the result on the camera.

Wot a disappointment!
 If only we had the normal camera! Still, we had to make do with a B&W Infra Red effort!

Down on the beach while OTL was trying to get Eric to have a run around instead of sitting on the sand shivering, Holly and I had a great time rolling about on the sand!

We just LOVE SNIFFS!
 Back home it was snooze time while OTL played around on the computer trying to make it look like he was working hard!

Lunchtime the temperature had climbed a few degrees and even Freddy had got down from OTL's arms for a run along the beach.

Miss Wendy was having a good time digging holes in the sand and chasing Freddy!

OK, where is that big lump of a ferret, I want to bite his tail?
The tide was in and the sea was it's normally grey and brown looking but using the IR camera you could pick out the sea weed that normally we would not have seen!

Is that Sea Weed or Ice Bergs?
Miss Wendy got fed up with chasing Freddy and started on OTL! She would come running up and jump onto his boots and start climbing up his trouser leg!

Can you imaging what he would say if Holly and I did that?

Quick, gissa leg!
OTL went shopping today at the local Co-op and half way around remembered he didn't get the chicken out of the freezer, lucky for us there were some packs of chicken bits in the chiller so Holly and I are guaranteed chicken today and tomorrow, which is better than that Doggy Scoff we had the other day!

Now OTL has worked out how to do Krispy Skin Chicken Holly and I are really looking forward to our meal tonight!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Freddy gets Stabbed and we see another Strange Bird in the garden!

Hello Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

We had a super snooze last night, The Missus is off baby sitting and there was no bouncing or snoring or getting up a three to make a card!

Old Two Legs didn't move nor did Holly Chops and I'm sure I never moved either!

Well, I woke up in the same position I went to sleep in last night!

Down on the beach May and Eric decided that it was just too wet and the rain wasn't as comfortable as cuddle in OTL's arms!

Come on, let's rush him and crawl into his pockets!
 Back home OTL cooked our chicken and even managed to make the skin all crispy!

Holly and I finished both bowls off in no time!

With full tummies there was only one place to go, up to bed!

We woke up at lunchtime ready for our run down on the Sea Wall and as the tide was in both Freddy and Wendy decided that it would be fun to have a paddle in the sea!

Freddy getting ready to dive into the sea!
 Freddy ran down the beach but stopped just before the water came crashing up the beach! Freddy put his brakes on and managed to keep dry, except for his paws!

It's not as cold as it looks!
Back home we had half an hour before Freddy was due to see the vet and as we headed into the kitchen for a nibble from the biscuit bowl we spotted a Sparrow Hawk sitting on the fence looking for the birds that gather on the feeders in the garden!

Before we could get the camera our he had flown away.  Freddy called out that there was another bird by the pond and he called it a Frog Hawk 'cos it was looking for frogs!

Freddy doesn't get out in the garden too much so we had to explain that what he saw wasn't a real bird!

Freddy's Frog Hawk in Infra Red!
 OTL did a bit of Fiddly Diddly and turned the picture into an Infra Red B&W photo!

Even after a bit of Fiddly Diddly it still looks cold!
All those leaves were a yellowish orange colour but in IR we wouldn't know!

Well, Freddy got stabbed and the vet says he need not come back for another three years! Lucky Ferret, Holly and I are still on the yearly dose!

Miss Wendy went with Freddy to hold his paw in case he got scared but after a slurp of Ferretone he didn't even feel the injection!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

A Day of Running Around!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here.

We have had a busy day today. You see The Missus is off for a weeks baby sitting and rather than drive herself she told Old Two Legs he had to take her!

Something about not liking motorways or getting lost in the back roads!

This means that we had to get our walks done at double speed and that is not good when your trying to have a wee!

We are still playing with the Infra Red camera and getting some really strange results!

How about this one?

Miss May looking like Snowflake except for her eye!
We tried to get Eric to change colour but he just stayed all B&W no matter how we tried!

Back home it was all rush and tear to get the cages done before heading off to the motorway.

Now, as normal, the back of the car was stuffed full of card making gear with just one small bag for a change of clothing. Is she going to do washing of her 'smalls' every day?

When we arrived there were the three monster woofers charging around, so OTL left us in the car while he unloaded everything. Then it was our turn to get a walk in the park for a wee or two before heading back home.

We got home in time to collect Fred and Wendy for their lunchtime walk but Freddy was more interested in staying cuddled up in OTL's arms 'cos he was a little cold!

Down on the beach OTL took some more pictures and this time he had a little fiddly diddly on the computer but not enough to set the world on fire!

No Fiddly Diddly!
 Looking out to sea there is no Infra Red being reflected of anything so it all reverts back to B&W.

Wot? No IR?
Today it has been Doggy Scoff, not exactly the meal we wanted but it filled a hole and we may survive until tomorrow when there should be some chicken!

Off to bed now, the eye lids are feeling heavy and we are in need of a cuddle with OTL!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

A Seriously Lazy Day!

Yo! Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

We love Saturdays, Old Two Legs leaves all his bits of paper and the 'Work Computer' alone, cleans the cages out early and spends loads of time playing with the ferrets. Holly and I get a chance to catch up on our sleep by taking over the whole of the bed, stretch out and wrap ourselves in the duvet!

So today it has been a 'Nothing Day', you know, no work, no customers, no suppliers and OTL gets robbed every time he gets near to any nibbly type food. You know, biscuits or chews or a Marmite sandwich!

It will be a week or two before we get the camera back from the Service Centre, so it is all Black & White Infra Red!

Today we have not done any fiddly stuff to the pictures, these are just as they come out of the camera, except that we have cropped them for size.

What is interesting is the first shot of Sheerness docks comes out in B&W and shows no sign of Infra Red rendering.

Sheerness Docks on a chilly November morning.
 Next shot is of Miss May who is officially a 'Silver' coloured ferret but the Infra Red makes her to be almost an Albino, except for a tiddly bit of black hair between her ears!


I know it's a bit fuzzy, it was cold and we were shivering!
 On the beach it looked really cold, I mean, real Artic type of weather and the Infra Red picks out the plant life and the shells on the beach and turns them white.

Then it picks out the IR in the sky as well!

I don't care, it still looks like snow and frost!
 The water is normally a sort of grey and brown colour but the IR picks out the reflection from the sky making it look like a reddy brown colour.

Looks more like the colour of OTL's tea!
 Really, IR comes into it's own on sunny summer days and it all gets exciting but as it is nearly Winter we will have to get our thinking tails on to make it more interesting!

We heard OTL on the phone today to the vet, Freddy is due to get his Distemper Jab on Monday and OTL says that he will have to take the Ferretone with him 'cos the last time he was stabbed the vet had difficulty getting the needle through his tough skin!

An armour plated ferret!

See you all tomorrow and with a bit of luck it will be another Seriously Lazy Day!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Infra Red and Frost!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Do we have red muzzles or wot?

You know that parcel that arrived sniffing of Archie Babe? Well, it's not a prezzie!

We have been told that it is a Woofer Advent Calendar!

So, Thanks Archie Babe and we will be lining up on the first day of December to open the first door!

Now, we told you about Old Two Legs camera, and today he dug out the Infra Red camera and he has been trying to remember all the settings!

Well, it,s different!
First thing this morning there was a layer of frost everywhere and the windows in the car were all covered with ice!

Even the Sea Wall is cold!
 With the Infra Red camera all the green grass looks white and frosty but the grass was really frosty, In fact May and Eric didn't really get down from OTL's arms until we were up by the bench on the hill!

Do you think it will warm up by lunch time?
 Back home there was a big bowl of chicken which we soon demolished and went off for a snooze while the ferrets had their morning rampage.

At the lunchtime walk the sun had come out and the frost had disappeared but the camera made it look like the there was loads of frost still around.

Little Wendy on 'Frosty Sea Shells'
Freddy stayed cuddled up in OTL's arms until we got back to the football field then he got down for a run on the grass.

Freddy doing his exercise!
 Holly and I went off sniffing the field and even though the frost had gone, when we looked at the photo it made us feel cold!

Just wait until the snow arrives!
 Being Friday we decided to finish off early and get all the stuff down the Post Office and the carriers.

If the weather is kind to us we plan to do some gardening with OTL 'cos he has got to finish off the 'Wild Life' patch at the bottom of the garden. There is also all the leaves to clean up as well.

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
