        Unwilling to accept that there is “no more” wheat for him this morning, while on shore leave between stream patrol duty shifts, Charlie unsuccessfully tests his theory there may actually be some hidden in my gumboot.

        This investigation was then followed by his going round unfilmingly behind me & sticking his head in both pockets of my vest, before giving up, shutting up, and settling down alongside me for a nap. Gotta love this little guy. He’s such a trier 😀

        • I have just assembled a new pedestal fan for my bedroom, and put a little pook sticker on each blade so that I could see them flying around-but the blades go too fast and the pooks are invisible. Oh well. The little pooks look nice when the fan’s not on.

            Bluebelle is currently invisible, unless you look very carefully. She’s sitting on a brilliant little nest, but she’s cleverly pulled down & woven foliage around & over it. She only pops in for a feed once a day, & only after the boys have gone – because she’s sick of them & their carry-on!

            • I wish that you could have seen the two who used to run on the hills across the road….she was always running away from him, but not so fast that he would think that he would have no hope of catching her. Every so often she would look over her shoulder to make sure that he was still there. Too funny.

    • Love me done H A P P Y.
      Yay

        Splendid Phantom! I quite enjoy this track, but unfortunately whenever it is played on the ‘wireless’ at work, the ‘village idiot’ prances about singing, but replaces the lyrics “Burn one down”, with “Rub one out”. And dances accordingly. I’d get upset with him, if it wasn’t so funny to watch… 😀

    The best of the old, & the new. This is the ‘studio version’ of Tool covering ‘No Quarter’, by Led Zeppelin.

      Classy Trav! I wouldn’t have guessed you were ‘that kinda girl’, LOL. Personally, I like my music ‘heavy’…

      • You do, I find something to like in most music, and my taste varies through the day as my rhythms change. Tonight I’ve been listening, among other music to another favourite Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp in C Major (2nd Movement). Reminds me of my Dad

          That was nothing short of splendid Trav. ‘Heavy metal’ generally involves five or less individuals playing in harmony, but that one involved many more. At our wedding, my ataahua wahine & I, engaged the talent of a ‘harpist’, who not only played what she was supposed to, at the right time, but also enjoyed ‘playing about’, in between. Which is the ‘mark’, of a true musician. If one ‘feels the music’, filling ‘the gap’ between songs involves little effort.

    Late enough for me. The ‘productive work binge’ will be at day 13 tomorrow. With a little luck, I might get to enjoy day 16 at home. I’m praying for rain, as I’d prefer not to mow the lawn, on my ‘day off’… 😀
