My human carer Gail is a creature of habit. Every morning she comes downstairs first thing, feeds me and makes herself a pot of tea. She covers the pot with a cosy, and leaves the tea to 'mash' while she showers.
This is the usual set up.
Well anyway, when Gail returned to the kitchen, she found the tea cosy, teapot and contents spilled all over the tiled floor!
Amazingly, the little red earthenware teapot was undamaged.
Now I can't imagine how all this happened, can you?
Well let's think about it logically. It couldn't have been me, 'cos I'm still not scared of trying to pull things off tables and worktops.....

Now about this geology field trip, scheduled for Monday. Thank you for all your applications. The standard has been variable! I would like to commend those dogs who put up special posts - each one absolutely brilliant. (You can see the links in the top right corner of the blog, below the header). Well done Jake and Just Harry, Jazzi, the Rockie Creek Scotties, George and Ludo. Oh and last minute entrants, the five (eek!) Road Dogs. But anyway, I have miraculously procured a Tardis-style minibus, so all the canine students who applied will be able to fit in. The conscientious amongst you will want to be reading the set text, Hutton's Arse, over the weekend.
Oh and finally. I just want to show you that sometimes, even in Aberdeen, we do have enough October sunshine to cast a shadow on our cobbled streets.
