DJ - plaited!

Only A Carrot!

Yes - that's all he has had this morning - one carrot ... and a cuddle!

As I walked towards his field, the heavens opened, and combined with the wind we already had, it wasn't the nicest of walks!  As I got to him, my phone rang - Toni - saying that she didn't want to ride ... so I gave DJ his carrot and a cuddle - and walked back to the house to dry and have a coffee!

I have just got back - and the rain is easing, but the wind isn't - so, DJ will have a good day in his field .... chasing his tail - or Conrad's if that gets boring!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL MY FRIENDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE 1930's 1940's, 50's, 60's and early 70's !

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads of bacon and processed meat, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes or cervical cancer.

Then after that trauma, our baby cots were covered with bright coloured lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets or shoes, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.
