Long shadows

It's mid-winter now in Melbourne.
The days are short and cold, and the shadows grow long.
Still, I take the kiddies out every day for some fresh air - and it's fresh today !

Big important things with Dad.

OK kiddies, jump in the car. We have lots to do.
Are you ready to do big important things with your Dad ?

"Yes Dad."
"Me too Dad."

First we go to Swords Wines to stock up in red wine.
Monty knows to wait by the door.

Then to Zacs Pet Supplies for chewies for Monty and Daisy.
Then to the Microwave Man to buy a new motor for the microwave turntable.

"Can I come in Dad ?"
No, you wait outside Daisy.

See ?! New motor.
"Yes Dad."

Then to Loafer Bread for a loaf of stone-ground unbleached white bread. Yum.

Look at that. That's a good morning's work.
Wine, newspaper, motor, dog chewies, groceries ...

Thanks for coming with me kiddies.

Monty wants more pizza

When I have pizza, we all have pizza.
Monty gets a few bits of bacon and some crusty bits.

"Thanks Dad, but can I have some more please ?!"

Monty you big pig, you've had lots. There's no more.
"Dad, you wound me ! Am I really a pig ?"

Yes you are and there's no more pizza.
You've licked the box clean remember ?!

"Serious ? No more. *SIGH*"

"I'll just have to go to bed hungry then."
Poor Monty.

"Let me taste it first."

"Mmmmm, yummy. More please Dad."

"Me too some more toast too, Dad."
OK Daisy. Here you go.

Anyway, these two will never pass up a chance to splash in a puddle.

Racing home

He's a bit slow, the old Monty, but he trots home when he thinks it's tea time.
Monty, let's head home for dinner.
''Ooohh, hot dinner in my bowl. I'm hungry. Let's go !''

Not too far from Dad

Daisy doesn't like being too far away from me.
If I lag behind or stride ahead, she will come running to find me.
Monty, well Monty is old and blind and deaf, so I really don't think he cares much about where I am. Poor boy.

We have to 'wait' here.

We don't do much in the way of discipline, Monty and Daisy and I, but we do know WAIT !
What happens if we don't WAIT at Queens Parade, Daisy ?
''We get a tweak, Dad.'' *mumble mumble we don't like tweaks mumble mumble*

No.2 stare

That's a Number 2 Stare from Miss Daisy-Mae.
She's just as capable as Monty at throwing out a penetrating gaze.
That one is a cross between ''I love you Dad'' and ''How about a bit of those meatballs please ?!''

No. 3 stare

See that ? That's a Number 3 Stare.
It means I've just had MY supper and it was pretty good, all in all, but I'm still quiet interested in YOUR supper. Any chance ?
As opposed to the Number 1 Stare which cuts like a diamond tipped drill, when per chance I happen to eat MY supper before giving Monty his ! God forbid.
