70 Cocktail Sausages !

 


In between kitchen cupboard cleaning and organising 
I went to the cinema to see The Roads Not Taken .


The beautiful Selma Hayek 


A day in the life of Leo ( Javier Bardem) a Mexican author suffering from a dementia like mental illness , isn’t an easy watch.
As Leo is taken to routine visits to the dentist and optometrist by his daughter Molly ( Ellie Fanning) we glimpse two former periods of his life, which are either muddled and sporadic memories or present day hallucinations and the film is a relentless study of a mind fragmented and a psychi blunted 
Don’t go and see it if you are at a low ebb.....
Bardem who is usually so animated and watchable in his movies captures that faraway vagueness of dementia quite brilliantly and Selma Hayek is worth watching too in a smallish but vital role as his grief stricken first wife

Hummmm yes depressing stuff

So on a brighter note, 
When I was out walking the younger dogs Winnie broke into a full shopping bag without breaking a dozen eggs and managed quite deftly to break open a container of 70 cocktail sausages ( 2 weeks treats ) and ate the lot

She remains unrepentant and rather flatulent after my return home

The cottage smells of pork

  5. Hahaha. Oh dear, Winnie. Elsie loves the cocktail sausages as well. There's not much she won't do for a sausage.

  6. It sounds like rather depressing film, a bit like Biutiful that he was in, that left me feeling very low.
    Shame about the sausages, I bet you didn’t really want them anyway:)

    Oh Winnie! John, did you open the windows and doors to get much needed ventilation? Am glad the eggs didn't break.

    Hugs!

  19. Dogs are cunning when it comes to food. A friend had two lurchers; once, when she was out they stole a box of 6 eggs from the worktop. On her return she found two egg shells in each of their beds, and one unbroken egg each, carefully hidden in their blankets. At least they were fair!

  20. Oh Winnie! She is quite a girl! She looks exhausted (or satisfied?) in that picture.

    ReplyDelete
  21. that would have killed my dogs. however, chow chows would never break into anything. they don't go after food that way. winnie has the perfect " i just ate 70 sausages" look.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Winnie looks quite satisfied. 70 sausages is quite the accomplishment. Nobody can say Winnie is not stealthy. She knows what she wants and she clearly accomplished her goal.

  23. Haha
    Bad doggie! Lmaoooo
    And I read cupboard cleaning and orgasming. This pandemic is getting to me.
    Ha!

    XoXo

  24. Winnie does appear to look rather pleased with herself dear. At least the farts will be entertaining. Or not.

  25. Oh Winnie. Sausage Heaven for you, old girl. Baby Mo broke into the kitchen cupboard twice!! and stole stinky pepperoni dog sausage treats, intended only for very special occasions. You kids know where the good stuff is, don't you!

    ReplyDelete
  26. PS Maybe you should take up that new Ikea rug for a few days?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Little rascal-would it be about 10 normal sausages? which is still a lot but hopefully she will be ok.2 of mine are leggy which is a constant worry of mine x

  28. We've recently found claw marks on Billy's big bags of biscuits. We're not sure who the culprit is, but I suspect it's one of his visiting friends. Naughty boys.

  29. With Winnie it's always 'ME, ME, ME'. Reminds me of someone else with not half the good looks as she has.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Her photograph here says 'The Dowager Duchess' to me - you can either call her greedy or 'what a clever girl for being able to detect, get at and eat the lot.'

    ReplyDelete
  31. At least you have the eggs.

  32. Smarter than the avarage human , this gave me a laugh this morning .

  33. I would love to see that film. It was reviewed on BBC World News. Rather than eating noisy popcorn I would chomp down six dozen cocktail sausages and end up looking like Winnie.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I’m worried for the other dogs who have missed out on their cocktail sausage treats ! Can you buy another box ? There are no flies on Winnie ...... I bet she can sniff out a cocktail sausage from miles away !!!! XXXX

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG Winnie Rules!! My first (and probably only) laugh of the day. Thank you, John xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. I will pass on that film. Winnie has still got it!

  38. I bet she was in absolute heaven :-)

  39. Oh dear..but what a satisfied expression!

  40. Dementia is my worst fear as I grow older. Some days, like today, I feel my age. Then again perhaps it is because I did not get to bed till after three.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I hope that isn’t her last supper, but if it is, she enjoyed herself.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh my Winnie . . .
    This might take a few days recovery!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh Winnie darling, you do make me laugh. x

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you for my laugh today. I need a distraction from this daily diet of political tomfoolery. I think a flatulent dog just might do the trick. Cheers from my dying democracy.
