Pet Show 2011

Hit the Pet Show at the new Claudelands Arena a couple of weekends ago. I have to say the newly renovated site is impressive, with a great cafe. I remember going to quite a few dog shows there with mum when I was younger. This was different, a full on expo of all things animal. The little ones (big ones opted out of coming), got up close and personal with cats, dogs of all varieties, rats, fish and a few farm animals. We picked up a few goodies for Gilby and the girls even got to ride a pony!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
