Scavenger Hunt 101 #11 A Homemade For Sale Sign

Ok, so it’s not a home it’s a Charity Shop but someone handmade the For Sale sign and I was close to buying a Doggie. If I hadn’t been getting the ‘we don’t need it – step away from the tat’ vibes from Matt I probably would have. If I can remember where the shop was I might still get one and surprise him.

And just to prove that Moggies can own a shop window just as well as  Doggies….

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won’t be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

I don’t want a bunny or a kitty
I don’t want a parrot that talks
I don’t want a bowl of little fishies
He can’t take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

Scavenger Hunt 101 #74 Food Growing

Isn’t it lovely to eat your own home-grown food.

After all the hard work that goes into preparing the ground, planting, tending and caring for your crops as they grow somehow the food you make with them always seems to taste much nicer than anything shop-bought.

Not that I can claim to be the gardener in our house. I’m more a ‘watch from a distance and offer words of encouragement whilst drinking a glass of wine’ sort of gardener. Although I was recently given some very tiny plants, 1 Aubergine, 1 Cherry Tomato and 1 Pimiento which I am attempting to keep alive long enough to bear fruit (they have been named Arnold, Trevor and Pablo respectively, I feel names are an important part of the growth process).

This years crop includes, Gem Squash (which are a delicious side dish, cut in half, boiled then spread with butter), Courgettes, Tomatoes and a couple of Pumpkins. We’ve never had a successful crop of Pumpkins before but these two look like they’re going the distance. Roll on Pumpkin Soup and Halloween.
