Fifth Photo and an Award

We were tagged by C from Millie's Place to do the 5th photo meme. This is what you do:

Open your file folders (pictures),
click on the fifth folder,
and then the fifth photo,
Post the photo to your blog and describe it.
Then tag 5 other bloggers.

This photo is of our Beans in front of The Vatican. They went there on a Mediterranean cruise in 2006. It was not long after mum had broken her leg and she was on crutches. She didn't want them in the photo, so she was leaning against dad and he was trying to hide them behind his back. You can see part of one behind his leg.

We tag : Sunny, Derby, Mickey, Princess and Pierro, and Jeter Harris.

Also thanks to Patches and Nemo for giving us the Proximidade award.

We have had this award before and passed it on to others. If you don't already have this award and you visit us regularly, please take it for yourself.

Several of you asked about the flowers yesterday. Yes they are crocuses. Even though we have had the coldest winter for twenty years, (we think that is right, we can't remember for sure) the Spring bulbs have been coming up early. The crocuses have been up for over a week and the snowdrops came up in the middle of January. Dad even saw primroses before Christmas.

Tummy Tuesday

When we go for walks, I always have to come here on the dirt and roll. Mum sez 'Eric, why do you always roll in the dirt when we come back?' I don't answer her cuz I don't know why I do it, it just feels good.

Mancat Monday

It is a nice sunny day, just right for taking mum for a walk. We'll have a good sniff in the grass.....

......and chew on it.

Eric: Oh no! She's got the flashy box again. I've got to move fast before she takes my photo.

Flynn: Huh! Where did Eric go?

Oh there he goes walking along the edge of the field.

You can see the track we have made where we always walk in the same place.

Flynn: Hello! Who's been here digging out the hedge? It's probably Mr. Badger or Mr. Fox.

I'll just have a quick look over the hedge and see if I can see who did it.

Flynn: Nope, couldn't see any one. Come on Eric, let's go back and rest on the field roller.

This is a nice sunny spot, what do you think Eric?

Eric: Yup, I could sit here all day and soak up the sunbeams if it wasn't so cold.

Flynn: Well you can stay there if you want to. I'm heading for home to see what's to eat.
It might have been sunny, but it was very cold and we had to floof our furrs to keep warm.

With all the snow everybody has been and still are getting, we thought we would have some wild flowers and sun in today's Friday Flashback. So here it is:


It wuz a nice sunny day, well no it wuz a furry hot day reely, so I deesidid to go furr a walk in the woods where it would be cooler.I looked furr Flynn to see if he wanted to come too, but he wuzn't around.

I heard a noise in the tree, but it wuz just too hot to climb up it. I just went a little way to haf a look.

Hello Mr. Squirrel, I can see yoo on the branch. Yoo better fink yerself lucky it's hot and I can't be bovvered to chase yoo. I fink I need to go to the stream furr a drink.

Oh hello Flynn, I wondered where yoo wuz. Yoo must haf been sleeping down here to try and keep cool. When I haf finished drinking I'll tell yoo about my walk and the squirrel I met.

See my Back.

Eric: It's been quite sunny today and not so cold, so I enjoyed my walk in the fields looking at the snowdrops on the way.

Uh-oh, there she is and I just know she has got that darned flashy box with her.

She knows how to spoil my walk. I will just turn my back on her.

You still there? Take that flashy thing away will you.

See my back? Well, that is what I think of you and your camera mum.

Flynn: Don't worry mum, I will face the camera for you, because I am your handsome little man.

We had been out walking with mum again as the weather has improved at last. We stopped to rest by the horse trough and then had to have a rassle. When Eric realised mum had the flashy box he stopped, then walked away. We enjoy our rassles but he hates that flashy box.

Mancat Monday

I've been helping dad to move bales of straw from the barn to the little shed with his little tractor. This tractor is a Ferguson T20 and is often known by people as the 'Little Grey Fergie.' Although it is very old, nearly as old as dad, he still uses it on the farm for different things because it can get in places his big tractor can't, and when the fields get very muddy in the winter, the little tractor doesn't make as much of a mess.

Easy on Sunday

We need to take it easy today because we had to do a lot of catch up on Saturday evening. We lost our AOL connection midday on Thursday and it meant we couldn't even post our Valentine's cards or enter the contests in time. Luckily we had scheduled our Friday Flashback post. All we could get from AOL was a pre-recorded message that they were aware of the problem and working on it. At least we are back again now two days later .
