Hi Lily!

Lily is almost through here probationery period now having mastered the toilet training almost perfectly. She's probably staying but of course don't tell her that.

However there are still one or two issues, notably :

1. After I plant grass seed in the garden, whenever I go to check it there is a bed of lilies.

2. She has tried 4 different anti-pull harnesses and either escaped from or ignored all of them.

3. She still has to travel in a bucket seat in the car.

4. She has issues with horses. Today we encountered some sort of travelling horse event on the back lanes and she went mad every time a horse got near us. She does this funny squeeky talky voice which I have been racking my brains trying to place, then all of a sudden it came to me where I had heard this ridiculous sound before:

According to Betty, I look like Sweep.

He does a better Stevie Wonder impression, though.

Our Cindy used to pull like mad. She never got there any quicker!

Is she any good at Scrabble?

Did you say probably - did Oz hear you say probably?
I think you might 'have issues' with a human shaped life form about 20 times bigger that yourself.
So let's have some commitment please.

I get mad every time I encounter a horse and lie around in flower beds.

I have a horse with dog issues... I've told him time and time again he's a herbivore but he'd really like to eat one.

Geoff: You should tell Betty she looks like Su! Just be thankful she didn't say Mathew Corbett.

Dave: Better than me. Who isn't?

Kaz: Ooooohh! Handbags!!!!! I think the Lilster is fairly safe in the order of chucking out - she's just behind me!

Betty: So I've heard! 5 years in the blogosphrere have sent you a bit doolally!

Ziggi: Perhaps it's because she's French then?

I don't think you're making a reciprocal allowance for her natural existentialist inclinations. These problems would disappear if you too rolled in the flower beds, 'barked' at horses, escaped, etc.

Or is an anti-pull harness a sort of chastity belt?

Rog said...

Christopher: This is Norfolk. We still do all those things, although I have recently stopped pointing at cars.

Lily is something of a free spirit isn't she. Maybe it's her French tendancies.

Rog said...

Hotter: I would say Oui Oui but Lily might get the wrong idea!

I adore Lily. If ever she tires of life chez Oz, send her to me. I will let her bask on the vegetable seedlings and pee in the Sage's car as much as she wants.
