Doggy Photoshoot

The wife has decided that the final touch to the kitchen would be a couple of nice pictures of the dogs for the walls. No matter how much I pleaded the case for Scooby Doo, Grommit or Muttley she wasn’t having it.

So off to the local park we went and had a little doggy photo shoot.

Not decided on the final ones yet but these are the front runners.

What do you think?

This is definitely one of my favourites, Top Cat and his crew.

Based on the Bilko TV series, Top Cat was an alley cat who always had a money making scheme on the go. Constantly outfoxing the local policeman Officer Dibble TC lived in a garbage can with built in TV and used the police phone to set up his deals.

This picture features the whole gang and is currently on display on the stairs.

An Early Christmas Present

After finishing for the Christmas break early today I took Jake to see the final instalment of The Hobbit.

I love going to the cinema I just begrudge handing over almost £30 for the privilege.

As Smaug takes his vengeance on the town the fire alarm in the cinema went off! The film stopped and the lights came on and we headed for the door. Just as we got to the exit of our cinema the all clear was given and a couple of minutes later the film resumed.

We settled back down finished the popcorn, drank the bucket of coke and enjoyed the movie.

As we left we were given a free ticket for our next trip to the movies so I won’t begrudge my next visit.

As to the movie? It’s ok but probably a trilogy is stretching quite a short kids book a film too far.

For anyone growing up in the UK through the 70’s then Roobarb would have been a feature of every late afternoon. A short five minute cartoon in a very wibbly wobbly style featuring a green dog called Roobarb and his sarcastic pink cat neighbour Custard.
Roobarb was an inventor and an adventurer who built moon rockets and submarines watched by a flock of twitchy birds whilst Custard mocked from the garden fence. It was voiced by comic actor Richard Briers and its thick marker pen style made it cult viewing over the years.
Currently on display in the living room.

Menu Mistakes

Looking back through some photo’s from our travels I came across a couple of menu errors which had made me chuckle at the time.

One is from Rome and the other from a restaurant just off the Champs Elysees in Paris.

Just goes to show you can’t trust Google translate or your spellcheck.
