Doing Tax 2012

It's tax time again, and I'm cleaning up my filing box.

"Helloooo Dad. I've come to help you."
Hello Mr Darcy. That's very kind of you.

So, you're up to speed on Australian Tax Law 2012 then, are you ?

"Yes of course, Sir Dad. Old Bones is section elebenty-three and Tummy Scratches is section twiddely-two. All fully tax deductiblah."
Is that so ? Let me note that down for future reference.

Wash number two for Mr Darcy at PETstock, Clifton Hill

It's a bit of a cold day here in Melbourne, but it's time for a wash regardless.
Daisy is matted with snot from wrestling with Mr Darcy, and Mr Darcy is stinky and snotty too.

We've strolled down to the local Petstock shop to use their nice big hydro-bath.
Poor Daisy is shivering with dread, and hiding under the low bench.

Come out Daisy, it's only a wash, and it'll be over soon enough.
"No way Dad. You're going to torture me."

Silly girl. Come out and show Mr Darcy how brave you are.
"Sigh, OK then Dad."

"Pssst, Daisy... is there anyway to escape this ?"
"Alas no, Mr Darcy."

"Sir Dad, I'll give you what's left of my bone... AND my Blue Teddy if we can call the whole thing off."
Sorry kiddo, but you smell.

"I'm not enjoying this, Dad. I shan't be your friend anymore."
"Sigh, just put up with it Darcy. He just likes to torture us once a month or so."

There, all clean now kiddies. Time for the blow dryer.
*grrrr notveryhappynow*
Did someone say something ? Anyway, that was a bit easier than that first wash, eh Mr Darcy ?

A bone for thy supper.

Here we go kiddies, a bone for thy supper.

"Mmmm, yum. Thanks Dad."

There's enough for two each, see ?

One for you, Mr Darcy.
"Gosh, thanks Sir Dad." 

One for you too, Miss Daisy
"Let me sniff it first, Dad."

Fussy girl. Just eat it !

Now keep it on your blankie. I don't want bones all through the house again.

I've been having fun with a new Android app called "Skitch".

I can take a picture from my gallery and add text, arrows and squares or circles.
I can change the size and color of the text and arrows and circles. It's a simple little program, and quite fun.

So today, the captions speak for themselves. Here's a few favorites from the last month.

(Yes he did steal my pie !)

That's all for today. Bye.

Waiting for chickeny bits

Hmm hmm, just wait while I carve up this chicken, Mr Darcy.
"Sure thing !"

*thinks to self - do I get to eat some of that ? Surely not*

Hmm hmm, almost ready. Do you want some roast chicken too, Daisy ?
"Yes of course Dad. Now shove aside you new mutt, and let the SENIOR dog here have first go at the roast chicken scraps."

Daisy, I hope you're going to share. Don't push Mr Darcy to the back.
"As if, Dad. I may leave him a morsel if I see fit. I'm boss dog around here now !"

Mr Darcy and Dad's first trip to The Beach - Port Melbourne Beach

I found these pics in my wife's phone. 
This was our first family outing to The Beach with Mr Darcy.

"Hurry up, Sir Dad. It's very exciting."
Coming, coming. Just hold your horses.

"Wow, look at all that sand and water. Wow."

Alrighty then. We're all organised. Let's go.
Come on Daisy, let's try to keep up with that silly mutt.

OK, who's going in for a paddle ?
"Not me Dad. It looks very scary."

Scary ? Piffle ! Daisy, you show Mr Darcy how it's done.
"Yes of course Dad. Just leave it to the senior dog around here."

"See, Mr Darcy ? Easy peasy. It's very refreshing on the toes and the belly."

Clever girl, Daisy. Senior dog ?
"Yes of course, Dad. I am The Boss Dog now."

Very smart in my new jammies.

We saw this little fellow sitting outside the supermarket. (That's not Darcy, by the way.)

Hello there, you look very smart in that jumper.
"Hello yourself. Oh yes, they're my new winter jammies. They're very snug."

Nice. Where's your mum ?
"She's in the supermarket buying my supper."

Nice. Bye then.

Bones and Veggies

"Wow Sir Dad. Look at all that shopping."

Yes Mr Darcy. Look, I'be bought you a bone to chew. See ?
"Mmmm. Yum."

"Did someone say bones to chew ?"
Yes Daisy. You can have one too.

I've bought you some veggies too. I'll cook them up with rice and meat. See ?
*sniff sniff*

*tttthhhhpt* "Dad, not veggies."
Oh, you'll eat them AND you'll enjoy them.

*grumble grumble grumble don't wanna eat veggies*
