Whoops on Wednesday...


We finally got our sliding door repaired today.
When the strange men left, we found this:
WHOOPS!
(the rollers had collapsed, as well.)

Tankfull Tuesday


It's 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday here, so we're posting on Tuesday.
Look what we woke up to:

 Yep, RAIN.  It's not loads of rain, and not supposed to last most of the day, but it
should be enough to fill our little water tank.
 Hence the TANKFULL pun.
 (some mornings we're so sharp we almost cut ourselves.)

There has also been a low rumble of thunder:
(Exhibit A)


And as we're on Level 2 water restrictions, it isn't even our day to water the garden..BONUS!
It isn't enough to break the drought, but every little bit helps.
The small town to the north now has a no showers policy,
we dogs, naturally, want to do our part by not having baths!

Frightening Friday the Thirteenth

Bella's turn to see Dr Mervyn.
Bella doesn't like the Vet's.


All the usual examination things okay,
But, she has a lump on the end of her tail.
It is an old cyst with old pus and some 'unidentified cells' in the mix
so it'll have to be watched to see if it grows larger.



Bella was very happy to leave.

Woeful Wednesday on Thursday



Yesterday, after a big walk at the river, we came home 
to no electricity.
(The electricity company had sent a letter saying the power would be off from 9 to 4)

SHE went out for a day at the zoo,
and we were left at home.

SHE saw:



 And we stayed at home all alone.


sleeping hippo

 And we waited.....

 Two playful elephants having pushing contests.
The critically endangered Eastern Bongo
 We slept.
Mother and baby otters looking for snacks.
And we waited....
SHE saw lots of other things,
Siamang Apes, Gibbons,
Wild African Dogs, Przewalski's horses,
Galapagos Tortoises, Eland, Persian onagers, barbary sheep,
camels, assorted Australian Animals and
then stopped to get some Chinese food for lunch.
While we waited....
FINALLY SHE came home and we expected an
afternoon walk; but SHE wanted to rest and went to sleep!

UNTIL the power came back on.
(We did have some of the rice with our dinner.)

No Mischief Monday

That's right, no mischief to report this Monday.
Roxy stayed away from the rotting 'roo.
Dui only had to be on-lead once at the river for a short time.

This is as bad as it got.

Bella

Roxy and Dui
And that grass just brushed right out.

Of course, the weather turned cold with a freezing wind, 
so the peeps made us leave early because they were cold.
They'd be warmer if they chased each other around and under the cars, like us--instead of just standing around.
