what we've been doing

As I mentioned in the last post, there isn't much happening around here that isn't painting or cleaning. Over the last month, everything has been moved in and out of the house at least once.

Here we are, hanging out on the back porch - trying to stay out of the way and not get stepped on.

These daggy looking steps have now been painted charcoal grey and look much better. Ah, the power of paint.

Here is a photo of us helping Neil celebrate winning this big trophy. Seems he was the one who rode his motorbike the most over the year. He was pretty pleased with his win. To me it just meant he had zoomed off without me too many times!

We don't blog so much these days, but we always read everyone else's posts. Kay says it's the only cheerful, non-political news she gets these days (except when it's about one of our friends crossing the bridge - then we get a bit teary and sad). So everyone, stay happy and well!


  1. Don't you two look smart and clever on your garden patio! Congrats to Neil with his motorbike trophy...maybe he could get a sidecar for Airedales!

  2. Wyatt took the words right out of my AireMouth. A sidecar would be perfect so you girls can go along too. Congratulations, Neil!

    Love ya lots,

  3. Congrats to your Neil! We didn't know people were awarded trophies for riding their motorcycles. Maybe because they save on gas?! Good to see you both again. OH...Hootie started agility class in January. He isn't the best at it, but seems to be coming along.

  4. Great to see you around! Congrats to Neil..we are with Wyatt & Mitch. How about a side car for you two?

  5. That's smart to stay away from the paint. Every time I paint, it seems one dog or the other gets painted, too. How does that happen?
    Congrats, Neil; that's a fine trophy.

  6. Nice garden, nice trophy! We don't understand why you couldn't help paint though. A little spilled paint never hurt any Hooligan! AAARRROOOO!!

  7. You guys look great supervising all the changes going on right now. Neil looks very happy with his trophy and his handsome hounds!

    Take care
    Violet and company

  8. Hey Ruby and Gracie, you look so happy there. Glad you'll soon be back up here at the beach. Check out Tidda's blog, as we've got baby news coming.
    There's a lovely photo of the expectant Mum.
