Look ......when you said that you had found us an all singing, all dancing oven to cook our sausages and burgers on......I had imagined something a bit more modern looking than this in mind..... And it’s no good you all saying that I moan to much...Because let’s face it......We haven’t even got anywhere to plug it into a power point......Oh I see.....We have to get kindle and fire wood to get it going...Well that sounds like fun.....But I don’t know about your idea Halo of using the chimney to send smoke signals to the distance lands across the waters that we can see on the horizon.... That you are all convinced that it is the USA.....( I am not so sure)..... But let’s give it a try......and see if we get any replies....But don’t forget whilst you are looking for replies, too keep a mindful eye on our sausages and burgers......As i don’t want burnt offering for supper ....

A Sheltie Valentine Day Message

I thought as today was Valentine Day, it would be a good time to head down to the waterside to send you a happy Valentine’s Day message in bottle.....Yes I know....It was a poor cheap effort......But as you well know......My lucky star had waned a little ......Making money a little tight for me at the moment.....But the CraZyGang were having none of it and flushed with their recent winning.....That when they got down on the water line and seeing my pathetic message in a bottle still hugging the shoreline......Insisted on spending money as if it was going out of fashion by buying you Red Roses.....Chocolates....Smiles......And Champagne..... To woo your heart in asking you to be their Valentine for the day XXXXXXXX.......Any takers!!!!!

Showdown Shelties
The night had been a long one.....Now we were down to the last game......And as the chips in the kitty grow forever higher.....Player after player have looked at their cards and folded......Until it was down to only two players left in the game......Granma Midnight and myself.......And if this game was going to be won on who was the most popular .......Then Middy was going to win this hands down as she sits there with all her passionate supporters around her, willing her on to win.....Keeping her most impassive poker face on and daring me to call her........But we all know that poker games are not won on who is darling of the crowd as I sit here looking at my three of a kind.....Yes.....That is what I said......Three of a kind......Three precious nines to be precise.......So why am I so worried as I look at the happy face of Grandson Halo......Or that look that Maysie-May is giving me, that is saying sucker....Or that lick of winning anticipation that Misty is giving.....But at least Molly is keeping a low profile.....So let’s forget all this negativity in my mind and concentrate on the game at hand......For although Granma Middy is showing a pair of aces in her hand, we are much too smart to believe that she has a third ace hidden which would wipe my three nines into touch and giving her the winning pot, Which she has promised to share with all around her.......So what do I do.......Do I fold and keep hold of what left of the beer fund......Or do I call her and go for broke and risk losing the beer fund completely ....Or end up winning the whole kitty with the treat fund money being all mine....(And no one to share with either)....Ummmm......I am going to call your hand Grandma Middy......as I just don’t believe that you have a third ace in your hand no matter how confident you and your supporters look!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....

As a foot note......Grandma Midnight did not have a single ace hidden in her hand......She had a pair of them....Giving her four of a kind......!!!!!!......And for all of you that feel generous enough to help me pay my gambling debts.....Please make all cheques payable to Steve Hall

The Conspiracy Sheltie Club

And Guess what.....I have not been invited to join This Conspiracy Sheltie Club today.......Which leads me to believe that I might be on today agenda.......But maybe i am just getting a bit paranoid in my old age......After all......We all believe in innocent until proved guilty, don’t we......So just why should I be getting so nervous for.... I have no idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One small step

Sorry, but this photo is not new......In fact it is as old as Halo is.....Which might give you a clue who it is......But here is the thing.......Like many of my photos.......It has never seen the light of day........Leaving myself asking why.....For looking at it today i am finding that I love the look of vulnerability..... As the pup, (still too young to have eyes open) struggles to retain the balance needed to take the first steps.....With Mum looking on in the background and giving all her will power as encouragement....Yet keeping a very close watch on the situation to make sure no harm comes the pup way......And I don’t know about you.....But I am so drawn to that little ear to see how dainty it is......Sigh......Well it’s time to put it to the vote CraZyGang .....Do we post this photo on the net or not....Ummmmm.......I take it that is a unanimous yes vote then.......And we hope that you agree with us Dear reader....

Eric Clapton plays all that Jazz !!!!!

When times are hard
And friends are few
And you need someone
To help you through
Just call my name
And I’ll come running to your side
Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid

I will be there
I will be there
I will be there

I will be there
(When you are lost, lost in the night
Nowhere to turn)
I will be there
(Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid)
I will be there
(When everyone that you believed
Still lets you down)
I will be there
(Don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid)

The words are not mine....... (More the pity).....But are by the legendary Eric Clapton......I personally cannot stop playing the song......And thought that this photo of Jazz looking so full of the joys of life as she runs to me fitted the words so well......Although I am sure that Eric had other ideas when he wrote the song.....But I am sure that he will not mind us using the words to explain why we love our dogs so much ......... and if you like to hear the song in full......Here is the Youtube link for you.....

Midnight Birthday

Midnight has got to the age that she no longer bothers to much with birthdays...And asked us not to fuss too much on this day......Ok Middy.....You’re the boss.......But behind the scenes a different view was been taken by the rest of the CraZyGang......And mark my words .....Like it or not......Middy is in for a few surprises and treats on her eleventh birthday.....And despite that warning foxie look she is given me, not to tell anyone (And that includes you dear reader) that it is her birthday is today.....But come on......You might have guessed that I would not be able to resist in telling you.....Even if I make sure that i tell no one else ......(Scouts honour).....But please.....You too have to promise, Not a word to another soul.......Or you and me will be both in trouble......Oh.....And one other thing before I forget......Happy Birthday Midnight from all of us here.....xoxoxoxox....

Sheltie Tracker

And there was me thinking that I had got clean away with my ill-gotten gain....... and was destiny to start living the dream high life to the full......But although I had wiped my trial clean......I obviously not counted on the doggedly tenacity and grim persistence of Officer Halo in following my trail left in the sand and tracking me down to my hiding place.....But as bad as things seem.....Things could be worse .......For although I might now have to share my triple stacker beef burger with him...... At least I get to keep the can of beer to myself as he none too keen on the stuff
