No No this is not a Political Comment. Simply the time that the UK SPRANG FORWARD with the clocks. The start of spring me thinks. The past 2 days have been glorious plus 18 C or 64.4 F. Very warm for a March Day in the Highlands of Scotland.
To show my family and friends that I too can spring forward it is time to remove the winter growth:
With the hair loss I have lost a further 1.5 Lbs YAHOOOO.
Suddenly on a quiet afternoon The extremely loud doorbell rang out. 3 Dogs Barking and going crazy. I went to the door, where the neighbour was standing outside. Stephen said to me Do you know the Llamas have escaped from the paddock. I said no. He said they are headed up the hill to the woods. I quickly laced up my boots and set off up the hill. (very steep)
What to do, Shall I lasso them and hope they don’t drag me up or down the hill?
The farther I climbed the hill the more they ran up the hill. Darkness was creeping into the highlands.
I had a bucket of Llama treats with me BUT they were not interested. DARKNESS Fell. I came back down and decided that Daybreak would be better for my search. Next morning 0515 I look from the bedroom window no Llamas. Getting dressed boots on I once again headed up the hill. I climbed a 1/2 Kilometer with no sightings. So I decided to Stop, stand still with treats in my hand. Yahoo after about 10 minutes 2 of them peeked from the tree line. I held their treats out and slowly 2 came to eat from my hand, Killarney and Rocco. Dennis stayed in the trees. I walked back down the hill slowly giving the 2 a wee treat as I led them back to the gate. Safely corralled in the pasture. I saw Dennis. I held my hand out he spat at me. I spat back (as it says in the Llama handlers book) He scarpered off about 10-15 paces turned and looked at me. I held my hand out and he approached. I stepped out of the gate as he passed through. WHEW Wipe my brow 3 renegades captured. Ah the life of a House sitter.
What a bright beautiful Sunday so far; The rooster has crowed, the chickens released for a day of foraging. The dogs out for a short walk to do their business. Both Dogs and Cats fed. I am now sitting reading the news with a coffee. I was saddened to see that the GREAT CHUCK BERRY had passed away at 90 years. A good innings as the Brits say. Farewell and Rest in Peace, you added much happiness and joy to my life. Also to your zillions of fans throughout the years. Farewell and joins those rockers at the great gig in heaven. I leave you with one of the Greatest Tunes ever, Johnny B Goode https://youtu.be/ZFo8-JqzSCM
As for Pilmuir we are all Happy that Isla has returned from her double hip replacement surgery, she is recovering well so far. She must wear a cone until her scar is healed ( poor girl) but it is removed for feeding and her other bodily functions outdoors.
I will keep you updated on Isla’s recuperation.
When I opened my e mails I found a photo of my best Amigo Limey WIlliams Sleeping again? ? ? ? ? ?
