Daddy Longlegs are Cool

Sorry to the arachnophobes out there who come across this post… while yes an arachnid, the Daddy Longlegs is not a spider. As the video explains she is more of a scorpion.

Also, why they say “they” didn’t pull the legs off, they, or the film’s source provider, certainly made it so the leg came off.

I really love this whole series of videos from PBS, the amount of information contained in a short video, and the quality of the videos, it’s just amazing.

Bring Your Dog to Work Day

Bill at work

Every day in our office is bring your doggin to work day (every day is also wear shorts to work day). The doggins even have a dedicated chair so they can sit right next to me for easy access to pats during the day, or so they can rest on my lap as the mood takes them. 🐶

Centipede Visitor

Inside Visitor

We had a little visitor last night, s/he has been here before, or one of their kind has been out the back yard before. This little guy was inside the house!

Luckily he didn’t take his shoes off at the door, would have take to ages to put him back outside after I finished taking photos of him.

Short Haired Doggins

Today the our dogs were groomed and had their summer cuts done by Natalie. They look so cute and they are now ready for the warmth of summer and our trip to Sydney coming up.

Our Little Visitor in Blue

Blue Budgie

Blue Budgie

Not our budgie, we found him at the back sliding door of our house the night before we moved. The little bugger didn’t seem to be able to fly very well and he was just sitting there. Luckily I heard him bang into the door, else we may have let the doggins out and they would have had a nice little budgie bite to eat.

I caught him, brought him inside and then we tried to figure out what to do with him, no way did we want another pet, especially not at this time. He wasn’t ringed so we’re not sure if he even had an owner of if maybe he was a wild budgie who was tired or lost his way.

David went to the neighbours next door and behind but no one was missing a gorgeous little blue budgie. Next David put a listing on the local Buy, Sell, Swap on Facebook hoping someone would know a local who was missing a bird and while he got a couple of enquiries to buy the little guy, no one seemed to be missing him.

In the end we took him to the 24-hour vet who said they’d take him, put up a notice and keep him for a couple of week, if no one came looking for hime, he would be adopted out.

Wherever he ends up, I hope he has a happy life. He’s pretty cute, don’t you agree?
