Sunday Curry

Grey skies over the village this morning

I'm cooking a chicken and mushroom masala for lunch, it's only 8 points on fatclub!
This morning I dropped off the Flower Show schedules to the new people of the village. Each schedule has a " Welcome to Trelawnyd" letter. I noticed three households are couples with young children which is nice.
I bumped into "Med" who has just had his varicose veins done , he was rather sore " down below"
" I feel as though I've done 24 hours in a brothel" he admitted
I told him I wouldn't know how that felt!
I also stopped to gossip with the neighbours. The subject matter of our conversation was the new owner of the plot of land  behind the cottage. He let slip to me in the pub on Friday night that he was going to be living in the house he is about to build with his 17 dogs! 
He knew I rented the church field and rather surprisingly wanted to be allowed to sub rent it to exercise his pets ! I told him no...not with sheep and cockerels on the field......we will see where this development leads us....
Off to bed now for a bit. After tonight only six night shifts to go before I leave!
I see I have lost four followers! Trump bashing is having it's effect!
Oh dear hey ho

  2. I can't figure out Trump followers? If you listed all his deeds and mistakes and gave any other politicians name they would be furious but Trump followers refuse to admit they made a mistake voting for him even if it ruins their own country? Hard to admit they fell for a charlatan I suppose!

    1. I think it has something to do with the human failing of not being able to admit to a mistake.
      But every time someone says they voted for him .. it ... I remind them of what a mistake they made lol

  3. 17 dogs is a hell of a lot of dogs. Is it a kennels place they are building? I would get the prof to hurry up with that job hunting.

    1. I agree. My own husband voted for him and now doesn't want to hear any news about him. Would never admit he was wrong. Only says politicians are all crazy and yet Trump isn't even a politician.

    3. I didn't vote for Trump but I didn't vote for Clinton either.
      But do we know the people who left were Trump followers ?
      For me my party Democrat, ( do not vote a straight party ticket) has let me down for so many years, that I can see why many "Deplorable" ( what Clinton called me ) who live in the uncultured fly over states (me) would finally have enough. Too bad it happened this year or any year.
      Just saying......
      cheers, parsnip

  6. Your idyllic cottage life might be coming to an end; perchance the catalyst for a move elsewhere.

  8. SEVENTEEN DOGS???? Do you have municipal bylaws about how many pets a person can have inside the village limits?

    1. Where I live you can not have more than two dogs.
      17 would be zoned a shelter and a big no in a residential neighborhood. As NFA said to noisy !

  11. Hi John :) You can bash Trump, I don't care, I live in Canada so I'm considered too neutral, lol...consider me a new follower. That's why I want to move to the woods, far away, so I can have seventeen dogs!! :) Right now we have three, but I definitely want more. :)

  12. Seventeen dogs? Is that allowed? I think you'll be moving house soon.

  13. My next-door neighbor STILL has her Trump sign in the yard. Also a sign from about four Easters ago which proclaims, "He is Risen!" And I bet she has at least a dozen dogs.
    Beware.

    1. We must live in the same town. The house around the corner from us had a Trump/Pence sign up that finally fell over and is still lying face down on the ground. Prophetic? And those white crosses with "He is Risen!" on them that are planted in so many yards remind me of either Boot Hill or a pet cemetery. (The house with the fallen Trump sign has crosses all over the place.)

  14. Oh no! 17 dogs is a lot of noise and poo! Glad you didn't say yes to the field that you rent.

  15. I won't leave you, John, even though I rarely comment I do read you first thing every day. Love your goings-on.
    My hubby spent one winter working in a bush camp in Manitoba that had a First Nations lady for a cook. She also had a trap line and she would display her catch of frozen critters from squirrels to wolves in her shed and at meal times the men would check the to see that all the critters were in the shed and not in the stew pot but one evening they didn't notice the dog didn't greet them as they drove in. Hubby says the chops looked and tasted like pork chops.
    Trump is a raving lunatic and I'm sorry for insulting other lunatics out there.

  17. Surely there are other fields for him to rent? You're in the land of wide-open spaces, after all. :)

  20. I would have thought Trump bashing would have gained you followers lol. I hope your new neighbour doesn't turn out to be trouble. That many dogs sounds more like a breeding kennel than it does household pets.

    1. Or one of those nutters that we get here sometimes.. dozens of poor ill and insane dogs crammed into an apt or small home with one totally deranged person living in all the mess.

  21. Thank you for the inspiration - I've been trying to think how to season today's casserole (low carb, with spaghetti squash and mixed seafood) - I'll curry it! Delightful.

    And Trump-bash away. You can't say anything worse than what I'm thinking...

  22. Oh - and on retirement, I do envy you your six shifts. I've taken to thinking in units of weekends. At the moment, I have 93 left until I'm done.

  23. Bash away, I follow Trump news like I would follow a particularly ghastly soap! Home politics is depressing but for different reasons. Any chance the dogs are tiny pomeranians?sp? Janx

  26. 17 dogs? Oh my, there goes the neighborhood.

    ReplyDelete
  27. In Oz you would not be allowed to have 17 dogs in an ordinary household. Three is the max. Seventeen will be very noisy, I am a dog lover but that's a kennel and shouldn't be allowed amongst houses. Shame for you, I see problems ahead.

  28. What sort of dogs?! Not a bloody fox hunter is he?

  29. Is your soon to be new neighbour running a dog shelter ? I hope he picks up the poop of seventeen dogs.

  36. There's no need in us expecting the entire world to admire our Emperor's new clothes. A lot of us think he's naked, too.

  37. So how does "Med" know what 24 hours in a brothel would feel like??

  39. Sheesh..17 dogs as neighbours!! Like you and other Winnie,Mary & Co fans here I live dogs BUT our neighbour about 1/4 mile up rhe hill has a breeding kennel. Moodles ..labradoodles or some other weird mix ..whatever they are kennelled and howl all day while devoted owners are at work or out on the town on weekends!!
    They drive me insane depending on which way the wind blows.
    As well they have 'pets' with those containment collars on that slip the electrified boundary and force their way through sheep netting to chase my sheep so we purchased two alpaca guards and incidents are now rare..neighbours UGH!!
    So much to look foward too in your retirement if that will be a reality

  41. 17 dogs . . . a bit much . . .
    We have three behind us a bit . . .
    And when they are in "chorus" oh,oh my!
    My Mister Irish named them . . .
    Bitchy, Barky, Bitey . . .
    after he went to say hello and guess who bit him.
    Come to think of it, been quiet of late . . .
    I better check and see if they are ok . . .

  45. 17 dogs out together = a pack. Look out for Albert, who has no idea he's about to get 17 new neighbors.

  46. Woof .... there goes the neighbourhood!!

    17 dogs is about 12 too many :-(
