We have had many visitors, family and friends come and stay over the past few weeks. Kenton, from Australia, Kaz, from the South Island, Bruce ,from Hamilton, and friends who live closer.
Yesterday, shortly before 5 p.m. Joyce looked out the front window and pointed, almost lost for words.
She was tall, lovely brown hair, fast on her feet, and waited to be invited in!!!
This is almost at our front door!!!
Despite warnings of “ Leave her alone” “ Do NOT get too close”, “Wait for the council man to arrive”, I walked outside to snap her a few times.
I rang the council before 5 p.m. but the call was transferred to the after hours number. The unlucky man had to drive about an hour from his home to here. Further bad luck, as by the time he arrived, she had wandered across the stream and was somewhere hidden in thick bush and tall trees.We could see her footprints, with the aid of a large torch, as it was dark by 6 p.m.
The lovely man went home, I shut the gate, and our excitement( if that) was over for another day.
Felicity did not like this, she sat on a windowsill and hid behind the curtain. Boris raced inside, up over my laptop and sewing machine, and peered from behind a curtain too. For once, the ginger warrior chose caution over defiance.
Quotation of the day, author unknown’'
“ Beware of strangers that bring unwanted gifts”
