In response to a request by hobbituk, here's a pic of the two canine members of the narrowboat crew ,

Update on the home news front - MWNN has returned somewhat fatigued from the Dublin trip but has done some serious looking at the coms' bill for chez hesadevil and, guess what . . . he's decreed that we are forking out an arm and a leg for stuff we don't need if we get broadband.

Sheesh - it's only taken a year to get the message through. Just think how much we'd have saved on the two extra phone lines - that could have been spent on much needed . . .other stuff.

::ponders:: AtS Season 5 versus Extended Version LOTR Return of the King?

On a completely different note - for those who have neither the time, the skill, the patience, or the software package to make your own basic LJ icons - here's something that does it for you LJ icon maker, courtesy of lechatron

I'm confused. Does that mean you are going BB or not?

AtS Season 5 versus Extended Version LOTR Return of the King?

Choices... Both are vital. But LOTR does lack Spike.

And both are possible from the savings we shall make.

If the cheapest NTL BB package is only 3 quid more then it's worth it.

Oh my god, thank you so much for that link. I can't wait to try out making my own icons. Yay!

It's pretty basic, but I made this one with which I'd previously struggled, trying to reduce in size without losing definition.

If you fill out the poll, I'm sure there will be improvements forthcoming.

I think I'm going to print that out to show My Kids what water-going dogs are like.

Kind of Pinups for Dogs :)

They're both such show-offs for the camera. Here's the shot that followed that one Look!She's taking our photo

But they're not both natural water-going dogs; the shepherd is. She started her boaty career at 12 weeks and was taught to swim by the local boatyard's gun dog, Annie. The terrier, on the other hand is an orphan - adopted when he was a year old. He never ceases to tell me is allergic to water in all its forms. He much prefers tea to drink and bathes only when circumstances dictate. He fell in, hunting rats on the bank, twice last year, so that counts as his annual bath for the next two years, doen't it?

OMG, they're adorable.

Jasper is "meh" on water - he doesn't fight his bath, but he HATES the toweling after. I have no idea why.

Cache HATES the water, and tries to leap out the entire time. Now, we call Cache our circus dog, because he can leap so high. So bathtimes with him are an adventure.

Carrie ADORES baths. She lies down in the water, loves when I get the nozzle out to rinse her off, stretches, and has twice actually jumped into the tub when I was in it. The last time, I had lavendar and eucalyptus scent in there with me - she smelled beautiful!

For how long?

The Shepherd (KILO) doesn't really like bathing, but show her a stretch of water and she's really difficult to get out - she thinks she's a retriever.

Before these two, we had two Shepherds (sisters) who never really liked the water. That made it really easy to keep them on board. Kilo has this habit of going AWAL any time we moor up. We once went for a leisurely French lunch (3 hours) at the local Auberge, and returned to find that Kilo had let them both out. She was swimming in the canal with the local kids, the terrier (ASH) was hunting on the bank. One of the locals told us they'd got out shortly after we'd left the boat.

The lavender faded first, but the eucalyptus hung aroundfor about 5 days :)

If i had your life, I'd have to get those little lifevests they sell for doxies. Doxies don't hate to swim, but they don't have great stamina at it.

I would like a copy of the original of the dogs for my gallery, I do have a photo of them, (both sitting inside the boat) taken a few years ago. Thanks.

This is the original. It's burned onto a CD and uploaded in a smaller version onto the web. If I sent you the larger version in an email, it would take forever for my machine to send it. You can print it out from this page. Just point your mouse at the picture and click the right button. Then choose print picture.

My mouse has died on me and the replacement one is doing silly things like opening programs and whizzing all over the screen. It's not happy with XP, I think and there don't seem to be new drivers to upload for it. Need to get a new USB mouse along with the subscription to broadband.
