As part of the Blogville City Hall's Open House/Coffee Morning, I am delighted to welcome you to my 'office'!
Feel free to snoop around my workplace. As you can see, I am in the midst of an important and very scientific experiment, so I shall leave you to explore by yourselves (what could possibly go wrong...?)
I regret to have to point out that modern day health and safety standards have caught up with us*, and so you are not allowed to consume coffee in the laboratory.
In fact, now that I have set up my distillation equipment, let us all adjourn to the Princess Leah's office for our Puppicinos, and I shall explain my mission to educate Blogville about all matters scientific and to ensure that all our policies are rational and firmly evidence-based...
*Human Grandad had a favourite story about his early days as a researcher for Boots the Chemists in the 1950s, when they used to make morning tea and coffee in glass beakers in the lab. One day the boss brought round some Very Important Foreign Visitors and one of them asked HGD to tell him about the experiment with the different hot brown fluids lined up on the bench....
PS From Gail: it was quite heroic of Bertie hobble in to work today, as his paws are still sore (although slightly better than a couple of days ago). We see the vet again on Wednesday. Meanwhile, I would like to say thank you again to all our dear blogging friends for your helpful advice and support.
Bertie, you're a real trouper ! It's not too many who would hobble in to work with poorly paws - they'd phone in sick !ReplyDelete
Our vet often gives me prescriptions for human drugs and creams, so I know that sometimes they don't always work so well on us canines.
That's an awesome experiment you're doing there. We'll pop over to join everyone at Princess Leah's when we've had our breakfast.
Did your Human Grandad ever find the secret of a perfect cup of coffee?
love the story about the hot brown fluid :o) POTP to you and we hope for good news from your vet on wednesday...ReplyDelete
Bravo Bertie lad, stiff upper tail and all that... hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx
Well done Bertie for heroically keeping going despite your sore paw. Your experimental equipment looks very important and scientific. I will not go too near in case I knock something over BOL. Paws crossed that you have good news from the vet on Wednesday. Take care - nose licks and love from Moth xxReplyDelete
Bertie I loved the story about Human Granddad at Boots. OMCs mom told me the Boots inhaler once saved their lives. After a very long trip across the pond in 1999 her sinus were all dried out and OMCs they found Boots in the London airport.ReplyDelete
We are so VERY VERY happy to hear your paws are a tad better.
Hugs Madi your bfff

You look like an amazing scientist, Bertie. I hope that your paws are getting better each day. ♥ReplyDelete

We both LOVE your office Bertie. Hope that paw gets better soon.ReplyDelete
Addi and Oreo
Wow, you really are a scientist! Do you ever watch the "Big Bang Theory"? Does it show there? We learn our science from that show BOL!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
We have a TV channel here that shows the Big Bang Theory almost non stop. We indulge from time to time, when Gail's brain is tired!Delete
Bertie we sure do hope your visit to the vet goes/went well today.ReplyDelete
Kitty kisses to the paws
Madi your bfff
Silly Gail got the date wrong - the appointment is tomorrow (Thursday). My paws are a felling little bit better today, but far from properly better. Thank you so much for thinking of me.Delete
Guess what? Our person used to work in a place called Biogeochemistry Laboratory (whatever the heck that is), and they used to make ice cream every summer! They made it in big flasks using liquid nitrogen, and lots of cream and sugar! If coffee is not allowed in your lab, maybe you can do ice cream!ReplyDelete
Our person is not in the photos because she was taking the photos. I forgot - you'll need a temperature probe to tell when the ice cream is done!
Wow, Gail and I are both very excited by your comments. Me 'cos of the ice cream, of course. Her 'cos of the ice cream but also 'cos she has a PhD in biogeochemistry and is thrilled to know there is another dog blogger out there with that background!Delete
That's a pretty funny story about your human granddad, Bertie. Sure hope your paws are feeling better soon!ReplyDelete
