This is one of the drafts I did 87 years ago before we went cold turkey. It never did get finished but thought you might like it just the same ... so here goes.
We got home from Sydney just in time for Mum to help our Jen make Miss Jo's birthday cake. They were very pleased with their efforts this time. They reckon it was the best cake they had EVER
made. Funny!! They say that about every cake but I do think they are getting better. They really enjoy doing it and want to take some cake decorating lessons but so far they haven't found any classes up here. One of the disadvantages of NOT
living in a city I s'pose.
Miss Jo got guinea pigs for her birthday. GUINEA PIGS!!!!!! OMD!!
What next????? I used to be able to relax and have a good time playing with Murphs when I went over there but now ..... chooks, a pig and last but not least guinea pigs. When will it end?? They want a miniature cow next. I like cows ... a lot ..... but ..... fair dinkum ..... when will it end???????
We went over for the party. I didn't get locked in my crate this time. Miss PPP's got locked up instead and so did the chooks. The guinea pigs were in a cage inside. I WASN'T ALLOWED INSIDE!!!!
Hmmmmmmmmmmph!!!!! Of all the nerve ..... I've always been allowed inside before. It was a good day regardless!! The kids had a great time. Miss Jo loved her guinea pigs and all her other pressies.
This is where I finished dictating to Mum and now it's so long ago I can't remember what else I was going to say so I'll just finish off with some pics of the day and the cake of course. A pretty crook old post, aye?? but hey ..... it's been a while .... I'll get better again ..... I promise.
|Happy birthday Miss Jo.|
|She got this as well as the guinea pigs. I think she likes it |
|Crikey ..... I'd sure like to give him what for.|
|She put a coat on him!!!!!|
|Dad and Miss G giving us a sing song!!|
|Those eyes are going to break a few hearts one day, aye?? Mum reckons she's got lashes that go on forever. |
|The guinea pig cake. Pretty good, aye?? Mum piped all the grass. Her arthritic hands are still recovering. |
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.
OMD! Your girls are so pretty! You should be happy with the guinea pigs because the girls will dress them instead of you! By the way you look great in the green birthday hat. The birthday cake looks to good to eat! My mom wants those eyelashes Charlie, what's up with that? We don't care that this is old it's new to us.ReplyDelete

I did Princess ... I did!!Delete
Now thats looks like a fun party, love your party hat Charlie.ReplyDelete
wow that cake looks so great.... can you make one for my barkday too? my mom's cakes always look like an erupted volcano... :o) I like to watch the little piggies.... but better via my screen, I remember that Terry the fox-terriorist of my grandpawrents had a meet&greet with that little furfriends once... and the domestic bliss between the piggie-peeps and my grandpawrents is still a bit short...even after 12 years :o)ReplyDelete
Crikey Easy ..... fox terriers and guinea pigs???? Not a good mix, mate!! I've seen some of your Mom's cakes and maybe one of the boy Grandkids might like an erupting volcano cake!!Delete
I could really do some damage to a cake like that. My Mom's hands wouldn't have been able to pipe all that icing. She is really jealous. Guinea pigs would NOT stand a chance with me around. Skittlez would just be scared of them. You look really fine in your hat.ReplyDelete
Skittlez ..... you gotta toughen up .... guinea pigs wouldn't hurt a fly, aye, Scooter?????Delete
Looks like all the humans had a great time. That cake is so cute.ReplyDelete
What fun! Happy Birthday to youReplyDelete
Lily & Edward

Wait till you see the Christmas photos if Mum EVER gets round to it. The girls got this supa dupa watery slide thing. There weren't too many clothes on that day.Delete
What a very cute cake! hope you got to have a piece of that!ReplyDelete
Mr Bailey, Hazel & mabel
Charlie Matey....you have been upstaged by a pig, that sounds totally and 100% wrong. You were there first and you loved Miss Jo first..silly g. pig!! I hope he doesn't oink!!ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful cake. Mum is right those blue eyes and long lashes will break some hearts along the way.
Hugs madi your best kitty matey WHO WILL NEVER CHOSE A PIT OVER YOU
Fair dinkum Charlie mate, next thing you'll be repawting to us like David Attenpaw from the menagerie!!! Hugs and wags YAM-aunty (who is finally back in Dunoon!)
David Attenpaw .... hahahahahaha!!!!Delete
Happy birthday Miss Jo! What a great cake! Yum!ReplyDelete
(What the heck is a guinea pig? Are they related to squirrels? Are they squeaky?)
I've got no idea but they're rodents of some kind for sure!! They sure squeak when I come too close to 'em.Delete
OMD that cake is the cutest. I hope you did give that Guinea a talking too. Not being allowed on the insides...that is just crazy talk ;)ReplyDelete
Ginger, Matt & Matilda
Those eyelashes are long enough that she could be a goldendoodle! We have VERY long lashes. And we are sure she is going to break some hearts!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley

Happy Birthday Miss Jo! And Miss G, um...she is already a heart breaker, OMD!
Your hat, Charlie...your hat, it looks, well, like a hat, BOL! At least they didn't put clothes on you.
Look at you in your the birthday hat! Did you get cake? Did you get to play with the guinea pig? Did you get to play with the birthday girl? Did you get to RUN???
I got to do everything EXCEPT play with the guinea pigs. I wasn't allowed near them. I did RUN ..... lots!!Delete
