September Tell Us About It

Recommended Posts

Hello September. My favourite season is coming soon :)

 

Ruby has gone down the pencil museum today as the UK Pencil Society is having an exhibition there and she is the Chairperson of the society. She is just going to sit and watch others do the donkey work of unwrapping and hanging the pictures. The US Pencil Society apparently sent her flowers after her surgery and though they showed up as being delivered and signed for they weren't delivered here or signed for by one of us. How awful of someone to take them in and keep them. I have my suspicions as to where they are but have no proof so will leave it there.

 

It's a bit overcast and gloomy here today but warm enough to leave the doors open for Archie's innies and outies.

I think humans should hibernate for the winter.

 

Yantan, years ago a work colleague's son got married and the bride & groom sent surprise flowers to both mums on the morning of the wedding.

 

My colleague's flowers never arrived and she didn't find out she should have had them for several days - when her son asked about them.

 

When she checked with the florist she was told they had been left on the doorstep.There were only two houses in the square where lived but her neighbour denied all knowledge of them. Nobody else would have passed the door.

 

Had a walk round Pitlochry today. It was busy with tourists. It is the place to go with a dog. Most cafes and some shops advertised 'dogs welcome' and many shops had water bowls at the door.

 

There were so many dogs of all sizes there you could have held a dog show.

 

Just shows the trade that places that don't allow dogs lose.

Or more likely shows the trade they would lose if they allowed my dogs in lol. I would love to be able to sit in a pub garden and have a relaxing drink or lunch at a pavement cafe. Never going to happen with any dog I've ever had. Dunno why, no matter what socialisation things we do we have never had a dog that is calm and well behaved in that situation. I know we tend to adopt 'problem' dogs but we do put in a lot of work and get huge improvements in their behaviour but have never actually got to the stage we can sit and relax in a busy public place without dogs adding to the noise. Not a huge loss in the grand scheme of things I know but I can understand why retailers wouldn't want us on their premises.

Never say never, Eve! We've had dogs of all sizes and breeds, my papillon Revel was fine in a pub or café, but he was the only one until our present girl Candy. Dylan our lurcher disliked other dogs and would have had a go at them, Rosie cav got bored sitting and would have barked her head off, but Candy is good as gold. Her only vice is she does like to sit on the seats, rather than the floor, but if I put my jacket on the seat then there are no complaints.

 

This may be akin to blasphemy, but I don't get all the fuss about Aretha Franklin. I've never been a fan of hers, don't think her voice was anything exceptional and am baffled by the three days lying in state blah blah blah. She was a singer, not the ruddy Queen!

My home town has been voted the most dog friendly town in the UK several times. Some people who live here resent it and are very anti-dog and always writing ranting letters to the local paper. Of course we get some badly behaved dogs and/or owners here, belonging both to locals and visitors, but the vast majority are good. Anyway many places welcome dogs and you can take your dog into a lot of shops here and many pubs. There are usually dishes of water provided all around town by businesses and individuals and of course we have loads off walking opportunities for them where they can go off-lead.

 

We have been to Pitlochry with George and Archie a few times and totally agree with you black magic. There are some lovely woodland walks just on the outskirts of the town that the boys used to enjoy too.

Been lovely here too. Great walks with the dogs this morning then worked in the garden for a bit this afternoon. Totally forgot to put the beef in the slow cooker so we had ham and cheesy layer spuds for dinner. Will have the roast dinner tomorrow instead.

 

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend xx

Stayed at home today as car did not start. It was not running well yesterday so decided to take it to garage tomorrow. I may have to get it recovered there rather than driving it. Wispa didn't object too much about missing walk as it has been so hot. Not workable to walk her round the village due to quantity of pedestrians with dogs, cyclists on pavement with dogs, people with mobility scooters and dogs. Unless I went at 2 am.

We considered going to Chatsworth country show, looked at the weather forecast and decided against it! Far too hot to take Candy, I feel sorry for the dogs who were probably taken there, not much shade.

 

I nearly jumped out of my skin somewhere after 5, really really loud aircraft noise so went outside and the Lancaster bomber came right over our house! It had done a fly by at Chatsworth, impressive sight I must admit although the Germans probably didn't think so, back in the day.
