Rubber Chicken Abuse


Somehow Mary has gotten hold of Winnie’s rubber chicken
For the last 65 minutes she has been attempting to kill it in the East Wing upstairs
The calm of the evening is lost forever

    Lovely video of your charming home but I do hear the rubber chicken in distress and calling for rescue from Mary. Dorothy seems unflustered and comfy so that's a plus.
    Are you off today?

    Hugs!

      Hope you had a restful sleep when you arrived home. Night shifts are draining.
      You know those reflectors that are put on bicycle tire spokes? When driving home in the winter dark after a night shift, my car's headlights caught those bike reflectors circling apparently in mid-air as the bike wasn't visible. I thought I was driving while dreaming or going nuts until the bike showed up in the light!

      Hugs!

    4. That squeaking took me back to Mr. Beasley squeaking his furry toy. We referred to it as Humpy, for obvious reasons. We buried it with him so they’d always have each other.

  2. Mary having a go... funny!
    I had a thought about framing of the rubber chicken. What about a portrait of Winnie as a background and the chicken overlayed on top?
    Your cottage looks wonderful.

  4. Oh John, the noise of Mary squeaking Winnie's rubber chicken has taken me back a lot of years!
    Our Bearded Collie, Sophie, used to squish onto the sofa behind her 'Dad', lean her orange squeaky hedgehog on his left shoulder, and squeak it for all she was worth! We could usually tolerate about an hour of it before 'Hedgey' was prised from her jaws and hidden!
    Our Soph died in 1990, and that video/audio just brought back some lovely memories, so Thank You! X

  5. Lord, that chicken is screaming for mercy! Did rubber chicken survive the assault? You may have to stock up on more!
    Thanks for the video, John!

  6. I though said rubber chicken was at the framers (but obviously not). Or is he/she just making the frame for you to insert chicken in?

    1. No the frame is being being made, the chicken remains

  8. With the sound off, the cottage is calm, peaceful and absolutely lovely.... but that damned chicken created a ‘house of horrors’! I thought it was safely off being framed? Did you decide against it?

    1. No framing is still the objective, preferably behind steel

  9. Your Beautiful cottage looks all glowy and not a speck of visible dust at all.I keep a squeaky chicken up high on a hook in the hall.Some afternoons here 2 of mine lay side by side each squeaking their furry covered tatty toys-it's quite distracting but happily surprising as I wasn't too sure how they were going get along together x

  10. I hope enough of the chicken survived to be framed! Dorothy is always with you when you are home isn't she? She loves her Daddy!

  17. Franklin and Penelope have never been very interested in toys, other than taking them outside and waiting for me to pick them up and bring them back in. Then they take them out again.

    Love,

  21. Lovely home John. My Pomeranian Teddy Was very interested in the squeaky noises as he is a squeaky toy lover himself. We have spent a small fortune in squeaky toys as he works on them until he removes the noise maker.
