    It seems like the time to share :) Any story with an animal twist would be particularly exciting!

    Of course, I have one ;) :D :D

    Some years ago, my then husband & I were preparing for a six hour trip to see my in-laws for Christmas. We took time with careful wrapping of the gifts, packing of the car - including a nice clean cat box for Razzle; the large black cat who was coming with us. Ready to go, Razzle in his halter and leash, we got in the car - where he promptly attempted to use the cat box before we were even out of the blasted driveway. In my view, he could wait. So I cleverly tied him to my seat belt and he settled down to sleep on my lap.

    Three hours later, the first warning I had was a loud *pfhhhht* sound, immediately followed by the high velocity emission of what I can only describe (to borrow Joanne's phrase) as runny poo. Such high velocity in fact that it caused Razzle to spin in several 360 degree rotations - effectively coating everyone in the car (except himself.) Fortunately, my husband had the presence of mind to get the car pulled off the freeway without crashing into anyone.

    My daughter-in-law is not amused with her golden lab , Big Mama" who has gotten into the storage room and chewed up the artifical Christmas Tree and decorations. We all love " Big Mama " anyhow. Someone forgot to lock the door and the wind blew it open and she decided to come inside and explore things while the family was at school and work. They also have a Pekingese, " Ying-Yang " and he looks cute with his little Christmas scarf around his neck. The sweetest pet story I have is about the year our Siamese cat , " Princess " had six kittens on Christmas Day. We were sound asleep and she had those kittens on our bed .

    Just a few! The first one that springs to mind was when I first learnt to drive about 15 or so years ago. I bought a VW Polo, 2nd hand but in fairly good condition - clean and tidy that sort of thing. We decided to take the boys to some motorcycle racing and set off for a day out in the sunshine. About half way there my youngest, who was about 5, suddenly announced he felt sick. Was it a bug, travel sickness, too many sweets? I pulled over to see if he was OK and offer a plastic bag just in case! He assured me he was ok, even though he looked pale. Just as I turned around ready to drive on he said "I think I'm going to be .... bleaghhhh" and promptly threw up all over him, the seat, the floor etc. I couldn't believe the volume of it until I realised he'd been sat in the back drinking pop - fizzy 'red' pop and had drunk most of a 2 litre bottle which was now covering the rear of my car. "I feel better now!" he announced - so we mopped up what we could, drove on, and the sun dried his trousers. We had a great day out but the car smelt sickly sweet for so long afterwards! ...

    Until my ginger tom cat escaped his box on the way to the vet and "sprayed" in it. Yuk! Had to sell it after that!!!

    Actually someone crashed into the side of me but a guy bought it for £400 and did it up for his wife. The smell did fade a bit, and I bought a new airfreshner!

    Probably wise! I take breakfast to work with me and my milk spilt in the back of my current car last summer, so that stunk all year! And my husband wonders why I don't want to spend much on replacing it!!!

    We went to Ireland a couple of years ago. It was the first time I had ever flown and I was terrified. It is (thankfully) only a short 40 min flight, and I had a window seat next to my hubby with my son and his (now) ex sat behind. From the minute we got on the plane he talked. Incessantly. About anything, and everything. What he could see out of the window, what was in the seat pocket, where we'd go in Ireland, what he did at work last week, was I scared, what if we crashed, on and on and on. When we landed and were able to leave our seats everyone stood up and my husband turned around to our son and said "thank god for that, you've finally shut up". Everyone in the seats around us burst out laughing - they must've been thinking exactly the same!!!

    The year after that we went to the Isle of Man and took him with us again (you'd think we'd learn wouldn't you?!) We decided to walk up the last bit of the 'mountain' (more of a hill really but bloomin' steep!) and he went on ahead and dodged behind an old brick building. He soon came running back to us (bearing in mind he was 18 at the time) with a sheep in hot pursuit, obviously annoyed that he'd pee'd on her mountain!! The following day we walked along a lane next to a field with a big stone wall. He decided he'd moo at a cow in a field, so the bull moo'd back. So he moo'd again - and the bull did too. He moo'd a third time and the bull decided to chase him the length of the field! Good job that wall was there or he'd have been a gonner! Wonder what he was saying?!

    Not really a holiday story , but kind of funny.... my aunt and uncle had a little pug, Prissy. Uncle Arthur loved his custard pies and I guess Prissy did too,,, as she got on the table while Aunt Delphia was in the pantry and she ate the center out of the pie. As dogs mouths are supposed to be cleaner than human mouths... aunt Delphia mixed up more custard and put in some shredded coconut. Uncle Arthur was the only one to eat the pie haha very funny and he told my aunt it was the best pie he ever tasted. I do not think she ever told him why it was all fancied up.

    They had a daughter, Jimmie Dee , six years older than me and she entertained me with little games that she made up. One was the shoe game. She said that we would look for different kinds of shoes and each had a meaning. White shoes meant angels were around, red shoes were lucky, etc, but if you found cowboy boots it meant that the devil had come to take you to Hell. Her older brother was not aware of the game. One day he put his cowboy boots on the stairs to dry and I found them. I was screaming and crying. I was only 5 years old . If there is any truth in cowboy boots being connected to hell ... I am on my way ..... I own several pair of cowgirl boots in different colors ... even a white pair and a red pair. I wear them to strengthen my ankles. One pair is so worn that the soles are paper thin.

    We went in some caves in Greece where you were taken through on a punt, and it was beautifully atmospheric and eerily silent; they apparently have trouble getting guides to take the punts through, as there is a long-held belief that the caves were the entrance to the Underworld. We sat back to drink in the silent beauty of the stalactites...then it started.
    "Dad it's dark in here dad innit are you scared dad because I'm not but you could hold my hand if you were dad and anyway I can swim and even if there was some pirates in here in the dark we'd be alright because I can fight them because I'm not scared even if that thing looks like a ghost but I know it isn't because they're not real like pirates are but I could fight Captain Hook because we saw that film so I'd know what to do if he jumped out dad so don't be frightened because I'm not..." in one ceaseless flow until we hit daylight again. I think the child must've been breathing through its ears, because it never stopped to draw breath. So much for silent majesty of the underworld - chance would've been a fine thing!
