Boris Has Landed
Do you remember that Jim and I bought a crazy table some time ago? It was so heavy that the lad down the road, Danny, had to come and help us move it into the barn for storage. Danny always gives things names and thus the table became 'Boris'. Jim and I managed to get it up onto the motor barrow and drove it to the back of the house. We then manhandled it into the sun room. Oh, he looks just splendid!
A closer view. We put him on one of my rugs to protect the floor.
An atmospheric Boris
Evening Boris - taken by Jim just now.
Well, isn't he 'different' I think the word is? It seems to be carved out of the bottom of a large tree. I always thought he'd look good in the sun room. I'm aiming for an Eastern/Moroccan look. We've been discussing curtains today. Of course we still haven't the skirting boards in yet and we have to paint the walls and ceiling, but we already have the paint for that and the rest should be finished on Monday.
Just a quick photo of them both in front of Billy Boiler! I called them so that they looked up. They then decided to have a fight and I had to break it up. Crazy cats.
Buster had his dinner in the porch then disappeared again and hasn't returned yet. Bad dog. He spent most of yesterday out with the pack of motley dogs. Michael the farmer owns 2 dogs just like Buster and we used to hear them circling the countryside all day. They passed through here and there were about 6 dogs all together! Now we hear a familiar, somewhat higher howl amongst them - Buster! I'm sure he has no idea what they are supposed to be doing - but just loves the running about, smelling everything and howling like crazy!! He was exhausted when he came in and slept all evening - after he'd cleaned himself up.
Is it usual for dogs to clean themselves? Buster licks himself rather like a cat does. Did he learn this from the cats or do other dogs do it? I don't remember any of my previous dogs cleaning themselves.
Strictly Come Dancing is on at 6.50 and the competition is really hotting up. My favourite programme of the week and it's even better on our new, larger television.
That's about it for today. 10 minutes to blast off. Happy Sunday everyone. xxx
