    Just to make you all jell/jelous (sp?) I have just got out of our Portugese pool, 38 degrees water temperature. Now cooling down after our 9th consecutive day of lovely sun and another forcast for tomorrow. Then it's pack up and back to UK who I understand has been having some decent weather too. Maybe I have missed UK summer now - they tend to be short and fleeting.
    Had a fantastic time Saturday night at the village fiesta. :trompet: Traditional dancing stuff. :boogie:
    Considering booking same place for next year and getting the whole two weeks.

    French fries are called chips, as in oven chips, fish and chips etc. The only time I call chips french fries are when you buy them from McD's or wherever, but even then the proper name for them is 'chips' ;)

    Yes, an elevator is a lift.

    No (well i don't, anyway!), I say 'house.'

    The thing that really amazed everyone when i was on holiday in Spain (and these were people from Britain, but had different accents) was how we said that something was "on't table" instead of "on the table." They thought it was hilarious and kept asking us where things were just say we would say, "Oh, it's on't table" :-\

    And, while (whilst) my family lived in Canada (Saskatoon and then Surrey, BC primarily, Nancy. Toronto for a month) we always asked people to say: *There's a mouse in the house get it out.* To which they would respond: *There's a moose in the hoose get it ooot.*

    They are great! Splendid hens - he had a lucky escape from the fox then, was it disturbed or did he manage to run away?

    Quite a lot of the brown hens are ex battery. They look soo good. Their beaks are funny tho where they were clipped poor things but they are so adorable.

    huh, I went out for a meal last night and fetched back a henny bag of leftovers. I always ask for one as long as no chicken on there but I dont order that anyway. They all came running this morning and looked like something off a runway ww2 style as they all took up into the air to race to be first. Soo funny. Then they nearly bowled me over. But they enjoyed all the leftover salad and chips and pasta. cool

    It amazes me what they eat; Onion was running round the garden with a long strand of spaghetti trailing behind him like Isadora Duncan, hotly pursued by Livia and Gravy. Even though there was a dish full of it on the patio for 'em. Perhaps Onion managed to find The Best Bit...

    Why is there always a Best Bit? You pass them three identical grapes, but oh no, one is always more special than the others...!

    I think we're just stupid; it seems soooo obvious to the chickens which bit is The Best Bit...!

    When I put their fresh food in the cage, Patrick will always grab a bit, scoff it down, then run down to Molly's dish to take the best bits back to her dish, then stashes the best from her dish in the box on the bottom of the cage. (Which Molly then goes down to eat!) Funny little sweetie pies!

    ellie dog
    Ellie (it's hard to get a good photo of her because she is scared of the flash on the camera, so the pics always come out blurry)

    Domino with the massive mound of grass my dad gave her!

    Domino in the garden, great photo as you can really see her 'special' ears - they are always like that, left one up right one down

    Oh, also, that green furry thing next to her is her 'Bed Buddie.' It's supposed to be a piece of broccoli with a manic grin, I bought it for her after Patch died to keep her company. It is quite scary looking, but she seems to like it.

    I had a rabbit with ears like that; I called him Biggles, because he reminded me of a WW1 warplane...that was when Bits started coming round as a young cat, to play with Biggles.

    CC, was Biggles the same type of rabbit as Domino?

    Tilly was actually just jumping off the 1ft wall, but you'd think it was 10000000ft high the fuss she made over it! :-\ :D

    Red those are all wonderful pictures. Thanks for taking the time to post them! Does Feli eat cucumber? Ellie looks like she might share a distant relative with Holly. That was sweet of grandpa to make that house for Molly. I think the photo of Milly with the plants in the background an cool lighting is another one of those shots of your's that could win an art contest. Nice.

    Well, I know that when you are keeping tadpoles cucumber is a good food to give them, so i thought i'd try some with Feli! :bigsmile: Thank you Diane :blush: :heart:
