This is about as far as our camera goes.
It's Venus. At the moment looking out a window of the cottage to the West, there she is clear and bright... I have to admit she does look like a bright star, we all know the difference between a star and a planet don't we ?
VENUS IS A PLANET..............
It's became a family joke about the star called Venus over the years that we have lived here in Devon, or at least since the boat trip around the bay..
Forgive me, I have to relay this story.
One night on a Summer's boat party a few years ago, a woman behind me,trying to impress the whole boat about her knowledge of the night sky..... ( I was closer than most so nearly choked on the drink in my hand, I was probably driving, so my drink on that night was non alcoholic).
Oh, look, there is the star called VENUS !
The star, called Venus ?
Maybe better leave it there.... I know Mark is laughing as he reads this because he was there too and overheard the conversation.He probably thought his mum would never tell it........... I have ...... aren't mum's great ?
I've been reminded that no one has seen bears on here for a while...
It's red, white and blue year, so I have been working on it.
Mark and Becca brought me 2 meters of red, white and blue material from Brighton a few weeks. Now how is it that my kids know what I love best............ ?
I'm working on how many things I can make with 2 metres of material.
I work in yards and inches and meters and cms. I'm not clever enough that both my hands can work independently on their own accordingly and both do different things............ Wish they could, but I have been working hard on two metres of material. Hands work when they can !
There would be a time Freya used to close her eye's as I took her photo, she would disappear....WHAT a
Camera Queen she now is !
Freya was invited to an adolescent check up from our vet last Tuesday. She is nearly a year old.
20th May, how can time go by so quickly..?
Our visit to the vet nurse in Totnes didn;t go as well as it should have but we smiled.... delete that... I didn't,
I tried hard. hummmmmm.
I love my other half, not just because he used to visit Battersea dogs home and park his real ambulance in the vet ambulance bay, but he has seen all and knows all... hum... don;t I just love him for it..Never brought a dog home from Battersea though.. I am still waiting..... He still has time...
The only thing the vet nurse couldn't pick us up for on our visit to the surgery in Totnes was the fact that Freya had been spayed and micro chipped.
Other wise according to the vet nurse we the worst ever and bad dog owners !
A bit like that star called Venus .......methinks !
Considering we have both loved and cherished our pets, dogs /cats/rabbits/hamsters/snails(don't ask about the snails) guinea pigs.... what ever comes along in wild life for a very, very long time (not telling you, cos it will tell you how old we both are)...
I forget to mention hedgehogs, rats, pigeons, birds of all descriptions... any stray mouse (FRANKIE DE TABBY'S)
There are times when I really admire my blogger friends and the work they do, LISA your my star .......
Lisa is a vet nurse.. I promise I won't add a smilie here. Lisa's blog is so guarded that I can't give anyone a link....TRIED HARD FAILED !
For all my other blogger friend's out there you all have your own special talents.
Most of all, you all, keep me sane ... smilie coming :-) X X X
Freya was out and about n Cornwall yesterday.
This photo of Freya Rose Blossom is the best yet I have ever seen.
It reminds me of other Al Freskie days,
Freya is different from Ames. Just as it should be...
I read a while ago that at one time there were only 7 Cavaliers left and the ones we see today are all descended from them... Freya isn't a Cavalier King Charles like Amie, She is pure Cavalier.. there is a difference...
You can find FREYA ROSE BLOSSOM over at her blog the
CATFLAP CAVALIER... as usual ....
We have busy weekend ahead, what ever your up to, hope you put your arm around your special four legged friend and know how lucky you feel that your part of their lives............ COS EVERY DAY COUNTS x x x
For you and for them x x x
