The Friday Flashback.

This is another Flashback to February 2010 and it is called:

ON GUARD!

Dad keeps the straw for the horses beds in a shed behind our garden hedge. In the winter the mousies and sometimes ratsies try to get in to eat any corn left in the straw. When they do that, they chew through the cords that hold the straw bales together, then when dad tries to lift them up, they break. That makes him say words on the Bad Werd List.

We help him by sitting on the straw bales and keeping a lookout for ratsies and mousies.

You have to sniff the straw to see if they have been around lately.

To make sure we don't miss them, we take it in turns with one of us looking up and the other looking down. We think dad is very glad of our help.

We don't has any straw bales in barns, but we has Mice and Voles and because we lives in the country, we has lots to kill so they don't gets into the house or the garage.
We does a great job, well, Kozmo does.
