Sunday Selfies.


Me and my mum were taking a walk in one of the fields and I found a piece of plastic that had blown in the wind.


I told her it would be a good place to take my selfie.


I thought I had better have a quick wash first.


Oh, I forgot to look at the camera!
Mum said I shouldn't really take it on the dirty old bit of plastic though...


so I sat in the grass and took another one. I had to use the timer for this one.


She didn't say I couldn't have a nap on it afterwards though.


You can see more selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.

Sunday Selfies.

It's time for me to take my selfie and I really think I am too tired to do it.
Of course I could always do a better job to it if I get a scritch or two.

Oh that's better, some nice chin scritches.

Oh yes, tummy tickles too! I'm sure I can manage a selfie now.

There we are! Now I can go back to sleep.

Friends, Ships and a Tractor.

Mum is posting more of her photos again this week from when carol and Barrie came to stay. After visiting Dartmoor and Cornwall they stayed local on the third day and went into Plymouth. Barrie had said he wanted to see the ships in the Royal Naval Dockyard. Mum said the best way to do that would be with a boat trip, so that is what they did.



The  figurehead of Prince William seen on the approach to the Yard.
They were in luck because there were quite a few ships in the yard.


HMS Ocean,  the navy's flagship which is a helicopter landing craft.


The frigate, HMS Somerset.
They also walked around Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican which is the old part of Plymouth.


Then it was back home and more cuddles for me.


I haven't forgotten! Now for the photos of Barrie and Carol driving my dad's tractor.


Barrie went first.


Yikes! Don't run us over!!


Next was Carol. Yes, that is my dad's legs in there. he was making sure she was okay driving it.


Don't think he need have worried, it looks like she had fun.
That's all the photos from their stay. I hope you enjoyed them.

Sunday Selfies


It's time for my Sunday Selfies again and I felt well enough for a walk in the field so decided to do it there.
This is no good. The sun is shining on the lens.


A bit better but still not good enough.


Getting better.


I think that is the best I can manage today.

Eric's Day Flashback - Let Me In!

This week the flashback comes from October 2010 and is called:

Let Me In!

Would someone let me in the window please.

MUMMMMMMMM!!! I said let me in!

Is anybody there or do I have to wait all day?

About time too! Yes, I know I could have come in through the door but I wanted to come in this way. Any objections?

Anyway I've changed my mind now, I'm going out again.

Another Day with Friends.

Do you remember that I told you that Carol and Barrie came to stay with me and my mum and dad for a few days? I was going to post more the next week but then I had a big setback with my health. I am feeling much better now, and so here is the next post at last.


I often take my mum and my dad for a short walk and I invited Carol and Barrie to come along as well.


I told them all that they could go out again for the day as long as they played with me first, which they did.

Their second day out was Dartmoor and the surrounding area.


The first stop was Tavistock and they walked along the river by the weir.


Mum says it is very pretty there and nice and peaceful.


You meet some strange people there like the three wise monkeys!

After that they went to the Farmyard Cafe at Wotter and had an all day breakfast.


Then it was on to Burrator reservoir.


This reservoir supplies drinking water to Plymouth and the surrounding areas.


On top of the dam.

From Burrator they headed off to Buckfastleigh and the Butterfly and Otter Sanctuary.


There were turtles in here but mum said they didn't come out well in the photos so she didn't use them. One butterfly flew to close to the water and the turtle snapped it up double quick!


As well as the butterflies flying around, there were lots of chrysalises hatching.


This black one was big......


but this one was a whopper!

Then they went outside to see the otters.


These were two young ones that got most of the attention from everyone.


They were having a lovely time playing together.


When they left there they went back across Dartmoor via Widecombe in the Moor which is where my dad was born. Then back to Princetown where they had an evening meal in The Plume of Feathers pub.
I was glad to see everyone when they got back because my food dishes were getting low!

I haven't forgotten the photos of Carol and Barrie driving dad's big tractor. They will be coming up next week.
