Day four of Monty's new chariot.

Poor old Monty is 15 and very slow to walk anywhere.

We're trying out his new chariot. This is day four.
"Less talking more pushing, Dad."

Yes sir. Are you alright in there ?
"Fine. It beats walking !"

"Ah. We're here. The park seems a lot closer to home than I remembered."

"Thanks for pushing me, Dad. Time for a little rest."

Yes, let's take a break.
Then we'll race around the park and exercise Daisy.

Day three of Monty's new chariot.

This is day three of testing out Monty's new chariot.
Poor old Monty is fifteen now and doesn't like to walk too much.

"Phew. My feet hurt now."

"Dad. I need a rest."
Do you want to ride in your chariot ?

"Hmm, no. I just need a nap. That's all."

If you need a rest or a nap, you're going in your chariot.

"Cool. Let's go. Push me Dad."

Helping Dad cook.

Monty, if you're going to help me cook, I'll fetch your blankie.
"Thanks Dad. I'll sit here and taste anything that needs tasting."

"So, what are we cooking, Dad."
Oh, the usual massively overcooked veggies.

"Veggies, right."
Mmmm, and some Korean barbecue steak.
"Ah. Oh. I'll taste that for you if you like."

Sure. For now, taste these carrots.

*crunch crunch*
"Mmm, the carrots are sweet and crisp."

Monty on his new wheels ! Darling Gardens Clifton Hill

My mother runs an Op Shop. She rang me up to say she'd found an old pram for Monty.
Check it out. This is our test run.
What do you think, Monty ?
"Um. Not sure, Dad."
"Watch out Daisy or I'll run you over."
"Can I have a go too ?"
"No. This is my chariot. Get your own."
Come on you two. We'll go for a test drive.
"Righto Dad."
"Give me a push then, Dad ! Yeehaa."

Daisy and the kittens.

Last time I took Monty to the vet for a needle we saw these poor kittens up for adoption.
Daisy was not amused and wouldn't stop growling at the poor kitties.

I should have adopted them and taken them home.
Little sharp claws and little sharp teeth would teach Daisy a lesson !

Supper ?

We're just talking a walk around the small block near the Queen's Parade shops.

"Dad. Wait for me."
Poor old Monty.

"Dad, my feet hurt."
Well I'm not going to carry you.

"Dad. Can you carry me please ?"
No way, you fat lump.

"Dad. I'm pooped."
Well rest for a minute then.

"Dad, I don't think I can walk any more."
Well you have to walk back to the car so we can go home for supper.

"Supper ? Gosh, I'm hungry. Let's get going. What's the hold up ?!"

Come on then, and I'll make you a hot dinner.

It's not a fast business.

"Hmm, hmm, hmm, ooh, someone's dropped some crumbs over here."
Monty ! Hurry up !

"Hmm, hmm, hmm, I think I'll just take a drink from Zac's water bowl."
Monty. Hurry up will ya ?!

"Hmm, hmm, hmm, now I need to pee again."
Monty. Hurry up !

"Hmm, hmm, hmm, I bet there's a bit of pizza crust dropped over here."
