Further to a point made in yesterday’s post regarding the sheer insanity of fractions (see I can speak legal too), I have recently discovered that Belle is half Border Collie, half Beagle and half Satin Bowerbird. The devil you say? What in tarnation do you mean? (I got that from the Waltons). Well, you see Belle has this thing about dragging crap from everywhere and making a bower just like the Satin Bowerbird.
I don’t even know where she gets half this stuff from! Oh, the other thing she does to prove how smart she is, is to drag the water dish all around the yard thus leaving her and the other guys without water when they’re outside. This doesn’t happen every now and then, it happens every day!
In case any of you are wondering about the things sticking out between the to top of the piers and the bottom of the wall, they are termite caps.
Addendum: I don’t know if you noticed, but all the crap around the Satin’s bower is blue. This is no accident, they only like blue crap. When we used to go surfing on the South Coast we saw them all the time, and they would often come into our camp looking for blue stuff like pen tops, milk bottle caps and plastic straws.
Every now and then we’d be mean to one of them and out a Eveready red ‘D’ battery in its bower and watch as he tries to roll it away from the bower. Boy was that ever fun! (we were such jerks)
