Floyd - shoulda called him Houdini (and Insiders)

I missed Insiders. Marr? Erk, didn't miss much, huh? Misha.

WTF is the mob with the chess set? Good grief... only caught parts of it.

Okay, the reason I missed Insiders was... I crawled out of the crypt at about ... late*. I'd heard some funny noises outside, but thought that I must have been dreaming.

When I walked through the family room I saw something flash through the grass. I put the kettle on and went to say "Hello!" to Floyd.

Okay, the rope is coiled up next to the dogbox, under where it's tied. Oh-oh!
I whistled, I called. Up from the long grass comes the wet Wonder Woofer. He had muddy feet from the dirt and jumped up on me... as he does. (I encouraged him.)

He had a run and several games of playing "you can't catch me" with me, but I didn't chase him.

Later I looked at the rope and the dog clip had pulled through the swivel thing which is tied to the rope. So, that's several different ways he's got off the rope.

I have to go out today for lunch with MDFD because I forgot to give her the pumpkins I had for her the other day, so I'm meeting her at a pub up the road for lunch... I need to get a clothes airer and one of those things that you put your stuff on and hang it in the shower from the junk shop near the pup.

By the way, David Marr thinks he's got a grip on the Mining tax... and then he displays he hasn't.

A milestone slipped by yesterday... I passed the 12 months "not having to get up at 5am to beat the traffic to drive to work" marker. Yay. So, why am I not up to speed with the mowing, etc? I blame my shoulder.

OMG, Marr criticises the government for the waste of money advertising their new health proposals. Okay, it's finished now, I have to do stuff around the house - hang out the sheets (they'll never dry), and maybe put the electric blanket on the bed in case I need it to warm the bed up for me.

*I even went to bed early, but I've been exhausted lately and decided to get as much zuzzes in as I could.

kae, hope you don't mind but sent a photo of my last two dogs to your email address, but forgot [senior moment] to put my name on it.
Good to hear about Floyd again, he is so full of fun.

kae said...

It's not there yet, and I have to go out...
You did use the gmail address on the blog? kaeqld.

Merilyn said...

Yep but it had a large Q! Enjoy your lunch.

Egg, they have got to keep gays happy.
David must be kept amused.

Look, I'm a firm believer in the philosophical concept of "Gay Marriage".

After all, why should the poofs be happy all the time?

kae said...

Merilyn, it hasn't turned up yet. Maybe it was too big for gmail?

kae said...

How about you just email me at that address and I'll see if that works?

Merilyn said...

Kaw look under willy not robbie maybe there.

kae said...

when did you send it?

Merilyn said...

Just sent email off under willy [husband's commputer as it has the photos on it] but just a note this time so see if that comes in.
Sent photo at about 11.35 am S.A. time in that region anyway.

kae said...

No, I haven't received either of them. I sent a test message to myself using the kaeqld at gmail dot com address and it worked...

Replace the at with the symbol and the dot with a full stop.
arrgh!

Merilyn said...

kae said...

Success.

I love Floyd, Kae. Hearing about his antics not only amuses and entertains me, it also reminds me why I have cats...thank you, give him a big smooch from me, please!
