Hi evfurry..well Dad is home at last ..he was gone for 87 years..seriously we had to help Mum with everything..it was nuts!
Dad spent his time away learning more about Road Rescue for the SES..for our friends overseas that stands for State Emergency Services.
These are the peeps you call when..a tree falls on your house or car..when you are flooded out and need rescue or sandbagging..when you are trapped in a vehicle and need to be cut out..also animal emergencies..such as we saw with sweet Pedro the weekend before.
This weekend Dad was again using things called the Jaws of life and other tools like big giant can openers..they practice on cars in different positions..on their roof..their side or around a tree..
The cars they use have been impounded by the police for hoon driving..so some good comes from being a bad driver..you are stopped from killing or hurting someone and your car is used to learn how to save those in accidents.
So Dad has lots to study but we are super glad he is home anyway..so glad that when he walked in in his bright orinche onesie as he calls it Forrest got super excited..Dad took his hand out of his pocket and dropped and ear plug..Forrest was thrilled to eat the ‘treat’ Dad bought home MOL..
So let’s see what is new..well Dinnerminzt has been working on that box still that Mum’s studifice chair came in..now Mum put two holes in the top..Dinnerminzt has been gnawing for Australia..and ..well we think soon she may have a bit of an accident herself!
Can you see how thin the cardboard is between the two holes! MOL..now i am not being mean but..Dinnerminzt is no featherweight..you know..so soon..well..she may need the Jaws of life..just sayin..thin ice indeed…
Dad and Mum have all but finished the veggie garden..Forrest has taken a keen interest in it..might be the pong of mushroom compost MOL..
Now it is fenced off to keep the boys safe from eating compost..no snail pellets or dangerous chemicals are used but still we try and keep safety in mind here.
So far Mum has planted Cauliflower,Red Kale,Golden sweet Beetroots,Silverbeet,Brussel Sprouts, and Rhubarb..she has planted seeds to sew later of Turnips ,Cavolo Nero,and a special green cauliflower called Cavolfiore..also some cornflower seeds and Delphiniums..
She still has to water as the rain is not really here much..but Dad is setting up a special watering system along the fence behind the veggies and all Mum has to do is turn a tap and they will go on!
Mum needs to give Twerker the scarecrow a new shirt and a head 🙂 Dad also put some hooks up on the fence for mums stakes..so she does not have to trip over in the barn 🙂
Mum and Dad used all the old red stones that used to be where our lovely grass is now and put them down on weedmat as paths between the garden beds ..they just have a bit more to do and that will be finished..
So Mum is really happy because she almost has as much veggie space as she had at our old house..and it is close to the house for easy access and the fence means the bunnies can’t eat the veggies..
And that bit of pretty garden is coming along..this bit was the part that hurt Mum’s wrist..this was all like concrete before she broke it up by hand and then filled it with great soil and compost..soon the whole length of this along the veggie garden will be done..Nice job Mum..
Anywho on to me Pickles..well..Marbles beat me up again the other day..Mum came to my rescue and straight away i said thanks with some biscuits..
Why she was wincing and gritting her teeth i don’t know..MOL..Marbles has been a bit more cranky than her normal self..Mum is watching her in case she is unwell..she seems ok..just cranky..
Doc and Forrest took Mum for a nice walk to see the roos…Mum said her shoulder got discombobulated whatever that means but i think it means the boys saw roos MOL..she tried to do a selfie wIth them but they were both looking for roos..poor Mum…
So that is our mixed on Monday..have a great week friends and Mum will help us catch up with you all as now she has Dad home she can share the work..boy anyone would think Mum had 9 demanding pets…oh that’s right she does..MOL..
Paw pats Pickles xx
