I bet there’s a lot of human females looking at their male partner’s eye sockets today and thinking ……so that’s why!!! Or hoping…… – now that was a naughty thought Jess!

The quote on Jenny’s diary page today:
 
‘To get money you must spend it’  : Titus Maccius Plautus 254-184BC, Roman Playwright
 
Obviously no relation of Titus Arsolus or Mick Jagger
 
But first cousin to Speculus Accumulus and Jenny’s dear late mother
 
Wisdom indeed but us Wooffies don’t have to bother about all that.

Jenny has got a new hatch back car. I don’t like it because I’ve got a new carrier and I can’t see a damn thing. Which means I’m not barking in the car any more at the traffic and any wooffies in other cars, there’s no fun in life now. She’s raving about it though, she got it from Pet Planet.

 We think Lynne wrote the poem? A great wordsmith, like her on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/lynne.rawlings.75

Hi Jenny, John Jo and of course my beautiful friend Jess,We had a super holiday,
With all of you, you know,
In fact it was so lovely,

That we didn’t want to go!
The scrambled eggs were super,
They really did impress,
As did the tasty pancakes,
But not as much as Jess!She is your secret weapon,
Who worked her charms on me,
And for her licks and cuddles,
I’m as grateful as can be.
I’m missing her already,
But hopefully one day,
Us girls will all return again,
For yet another stay!Watch the post and take care,Lots of love,
Jenny, Anne and Lynne. xxxx

Just had to listen to Jenny’s latest idea. She’s going to form a village Book Club. They’ll  read only one book this year because the review process will take so long. The first book is called Fifty Shades of Gray. Next year they’ll move on to the trilogy of Noddy and Big Ears.

Well John  and Jenny are meeting the Queen and Duke tomorrow. Goodness, the fuss in practising a curtsey and checking the wardrobe. If it was me it would be just a lick and waggy tail and Her Majesty would be won over. But it’s exciting because we can give her Majesty the Whitchurch Jubilee brochure showing how we celebrated the Jubilee weekend here. Now her Majesty is visiting Hereford tomorrow – marvellous. Woof Woof.

And here’s the evidence

We are at the end of the line!!

 to show off – Jenny holding onto her hat!

We’re all drowned rats with webbed feet. I blame the government.

 Jenny and I have just back from a walk and jumped straight into the tumble dryer. Actually I prefer the hair dryer really.

But this rain can’t last, can it?  Oh hang on –  it’s Wimbledon coming up. First week will be alright, it doesn’t usually rain,  so if you don’t like tennis  why not cheer yourselves up with a short break down here? We’ve got some great offers on. You could always go on the river – ha ha

Jenny’s 95 year father, Ron,  was worried with the news this morning about red meat causing premature death. Until, that is, he looked at the anaemic complexion of the American Professor expounding the result of his research. He not only needs some red meat he also looks as though he needs to get out more. Ron is going to carry on eating our bacon and sausages – everything is moderation. Go away scare mongerers, I think I’ll pop out now and catch a squirrel for my tea.

Jenny reckons this recipe is the best she’s ever tried.

 

Christmas Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

* 2 cups flour
… * 115 grams of butter
* 1 cup of water
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 cup of brown sugar
* Lemon juice
* 4 large eggs
* Nuts
* 2 bottles wine
* 2 cups of dried fruit

Sample the wine to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the wine again. To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it’s best to make sure the wine is still OK. Try another cup… Just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

Pick the frigging fruit up off floor. Mix on the turner.. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the wine to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Check the wine. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Check the wine. Don’t forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the wine. Wipe worktop with cat.
