Talking about sign language, I will relate a small situation I found myself in this morning.
As I am sure most of you are aware, I am the grateful owner of an elderly mutt, I refer to her thus as the Vet claims her Grandmother was raped by a fox. I don't know if that is possible but it is certainly feasible as she came from a New Age Travellers site and she certainly was mistaken for one on several occasions in her youth.
She is fifteen now and as deaf as a post.
Picture this if you can.
This 70 year old Gran in her dressing gown and slippers at 7 ish in the morning standing in her back gateway which leads out onto the large common at the rear of her property doing frantic hand signals which rather resemble a rain dance to this deaf mutt who, in her own silent little world has wondered from one delicious smell to another and ended up 3oo yards away. Unfortunately she has, by now, done more than her usual tinkle and this stupid old woman has the added problem of finding and picking up whilst hoping against hope that no other dog walker is about to appear through the woods and catch her at it.
Rosie has always been a very obedient dog, never any trouble at all, I could walk through the busiest town without a lead and she never moves from your side, step for step she is with you but I am absolutely certain she has twigged that if she does not look at me she does not have to do as she is told. Grrr.
Back gate is just off bottom left corner.
These are 12" square, or will be by the time they are inserted. 10 completed, 2 to go. It seems to be taking forever.
Now is the time to pop along to 1stUniquegifts.co.uk and have a look at all the other well deserved offerings.
Hopefully it won't be so long between blogs now I am on the mend. Have a wonderful week everyone.
