Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)



she’s got me fixing her muddles again. she seems to think that i will have more luck with posting pictures…

firstly, dinah is pleased that some people like bats and she hopes that one day everyone will like them. but we all know that there is no such thing as a perfect score…

and the confession is that the pictures of shona bat were really pictures of a leather- and – faux-fur bat made by our friend shona. who also is batty for bats. shona usually hangs on a curtain rod in our living room. the bat, silly, not friend shona. mind you, friend shona is sometimes very funny…

dinah supported the bat box scheme in england and had a box somewhere in essex. i think she called it effing forest. or maybe she said there is not much effing forest left where bats can roost.

i am an australian so i do not know about these things. i do know about the critters we had at our other house. a lot of critters. hawks, eagles, owls, possums, parrots, lizards. sometimes, they stayed with us a long time. sometimes, we made them well and let them go. and sometimes they died. except the possum who lived in a cupboard in the spare bedroom.

sammy, the cat-before-me, used to catch mice for the owl. the owl had to live with dinah because he flew into a windscreen. which seems a dumb thing for a smart bird to do. here is a picture…no.

clever as i am, i cannot make the blogger work today. perhaps, when she returns from school, dinah can do it.

but now, as i have this all to myself, i am going to read my own favourite blogs. i have heard that there are things called short cuts and they sound most tasty…
