Up in the mornin'.........

Out on the job......
Barkin' like the devil at our prey......
But that lucky ol' sun....
Ain't even getting up until after 6:30 a.m.

Scottie skirt--0

After a summer of river, sand, clay and burrs, Bella's dreadlocks
became too much!  She is the first of 10 scotties that had to have 
a crewcut.

Thank you, Ernie.  I love you!

Monday Mischief.--even though...

it's Tuesday here.
And yes, there is a reason Dui is featured.
Dui has had a VERY disturbed morning.
Firstly, a huge truck arrived to put 8-tonnes of 
gravel base on the section of the yard we're having
crushed granite put down.
The driver had to wait to find out what was happening.
Dui was frantic, barking and screaming his disapproval.
Then the porcine Jack Russell from next door who
belongs to the Mysterious Ray, went walkabout. (more like waddleabout)
She walked from garden to garden, inciting him
to further screaming.
Finally, the man with the 8-tonne load left
mumbling something about having his tyres detailed.
SHE took us for a run--not to be confused with
the early morning walk--to tire Dui out.
On returning, there was a huge pile of (SHE hopes)
crushed granite blocking the driveway, making it 
necessary to park on the street.
Dui was beside himself.  He tried to launch himself
out of the car, but was caught by his ear.
Finally, all leads on, dogs could be brought inside the gate.
Then the postman came...another bout of wild barking.
At the moment there is calm, the porky JR is next door
barking non-stop, and Dui is resting.
There may be a return of the digger this afternoon to spread the granite.

HER Story....The Passport

The time had come to update the passports.
(SHE is a dual citizen so needs two.)

Both expire about the same time.
Photos were taken last July and one renewed.
As there was no rush to get them, the other put off.

SHE arrived at the Post Office, with old passport, photos, application and of course, money.
Not having read the small print, missed the
'photos older than 6 months cannot be used as ID.'
The cut off date was two weeks ago.
As the photos were not much different from the 10-year-old
expired passport photo,  SHE wasn't worried.
SHE had to have new photos taken because they were 2 weeks over the 6 month limit, to be put on the  new 10-year passport!
Does anyone else see the craziness?
The new photos look just like the 6-month-two-week old photos
except for winter vs summer clothing and the amused look.

And we weren't even allowed to BARK!
