The Last Straw!


Yes, I know I look really stupid, but this is what happens when you let your staff loose unsupervised in Picmonkey! You'd think they'd get a life!  Anyway I understand it is Straw Hat day today, so I don't want to flout convention. Even though I have no idea what it is supposed to mean and why there is such a day, I wish you all Happy Straw Hat Day!

On another matter, I don't like to blow my own trumpet, but I was the first right guesser in Sammy's Tuesday Teaser this week. This is where Sammy (or a guest) post a picture of some place anywhere in the world and we have to guess where it is.  I usually don't even guess the right continent, let alone the country, but this time I got the picture right off (well, with a little help from my Staff!). Go have a look and see if you know where it is - no cheating now! This is what I won.....

Am I chuffed or am I chuffed!!!
Thanks Sammy :)

PeeEss There will be more about the enforced incarceration next time. To be frank - and who wouldn't want to be frank? - I have now put it to the back of my mind and it will probably need deep scritch therapy and a crowbar to get it out.

  1. Austin, we're sorry you had to endure the indignity of wearing that hat. But it does keep the sun out of your eyes, doesn't it?

    And you should toot your horn about guessing Sammy's teaser. They're not easy! Congrats!

  2. Austin how awful for you to have to wear a hat - Mum didn't even consider making us wear them as we had heard about it earlier and had hidden the camera - even being deprived of treats didn't make us reveal where it was.

    Catching up on posts - sorry to hear about the surgery but glad to hear it went well and that teeth are still intact!

    Congrats on guessing the teaser photo. I took a look and actually would have known that one! That was my fave spot that I visited when I went to London YEARS ago!

  11. You're starting a new fashion trend! Plus, keeping the sun out of your face will totally help with preventing and fur-wrinkles. Can't be having those!

  21. Oh, Austin...
    We're so sorry about that hat.
    That is just not the sophisticated, regal look we've come to expect from you.
    I certainly hope you are plotting your revenge.

  25. Excellent definition. We do see that you tried to hide under that abomination of hat. Our apologies to the staff, but a less "girly" hat might have been in order. We sure hope to see you out and about a wee bit more. You've been missed. Hope efurryone at your house has a terrific weekend. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
