    And the moment you have all been wating for. Da da daaaaaa!

    I lied. However, the time for jolly stroll adventure in pictures is nearly upon us. I can feel the excitement building.

    In the meantime, we had the banging dish conundrum. Sometimes, Beans would bang his dry food dish with his paw thereby scattering it on the floor and then eating it. Well, some of it. The rest caught an unsuspecting Shorty snooping around in the night. He doesn't do it with his wet food and the difference being that the dry food dish is deep. So I bought another shallow one and no more banging on the dish. For all you cat lovers out there, cats can develop a whisker sensitivity to the sides of a deep bowl/dish and now he's not doing it anymore, I guess that was the reason... time will tell.

    Funny happenings. Beans decided that he had enough of my hedge cutting. All that racket and decided that it was a Jolly walk time. Me knackered but needs must,

    Crossed the swamp. No alligators thankfully:

    ...and we got to the ditch which had not been studied for a long time and therefore needed much studying:

    With the clocks going forward and imminent drought, we can look forward to long and dusty jolly walk adventures in pictures. Beans will be a man cat on April the 18th. He will be 3.

    Hooray, THE thread is back!

    Glad to see Beans on the plains again, doing what he does best. I hope his sensitive ickle whiskers calm down.

    Post ride stretching followed by a new interest in Golf (mainly in Page Spinarac's fantastic swing) was delayed by a mad over keen Beans looking over his shoulder in the kitchen doorway at me expectantly. I swear he thinks he is half dog. If I have dog smells on me from people I know when I have patted them, he sniffs and sniffs. Jack used to growl.

    The sun was beating down on the swamp and in the process drying it out just prior to another week of wet and windy starting Monday and ending next weekend.

    So mad keen was he that I struggled to keep up. Then I found the reason - near the ditch worth studying.

    Proud, purring Beans showed me his quarry.

    So he settled down to studying the ditch worth studying. He's still there. Studying.

    We are not short of rodents. However, he cannot discriminate between a mouse and the (diminishing national population) short tailed vole. I like voles and Harvest mice. I have every respect for them and Beans' ego seems to be undamaged by bring informed that they, unlike him, have thumbs.

    During Kathleen: snoring. After Kathleen: Action. And he was mad keen today bar the early excavation. Entirely necessary of course.

    The lake and bamboo cam was triggered by the stealthy Beans

    Over there: adventure:

    Sorry, I meant he litter tray, Freshly dug (sort of)

    First; dig:

    Piddle:

    Bury:

    ...and all the while I was explaining to our intrepid Beans that Jack would never be seen doing ablutions. He was a gentleman cat of the highest calibre. Beans has a long way to go.

    And it was a long way to the ditch worth studying, across the windy wasteland marshes:

    We got there nonetheless and Beans said to me "Get a sideways shot of my elegant flank and athletic appearance 'cos if that @seanoconn tw@t says i've got a fat arse again, i'll chew his good arm off". So I did:

    It's worth studying that ditch.

    Can't we have a POV Bean’s cam? Obviously, it would be a certificate 18 blood fest, but intriguing nevertheless.

    Beans: Panthera maximus.

    Pinno: Optimus servus

    'Belarus':

    A break in the monsoon prompted Beans who prompted me. It was definitely action time and the arduous task of crossing the marshlands began in spirit:

    But first, prep: Pull claws

    Next: chew grass

    Then: survey the marsh crossing:

    Beans: Pay attention - the marsh is not that way. Get back on the plan mate.

    Then we proceeded on the long journey north risking death and trench feet/paws:

    We got to the ditch worth studying and Beans noticed the old crow:

    With the crow clocked and the marshland crossed with perfection after considered preparation, it was now time to study the ditch worth studying. Which is where I left him:

    Beans is a tw@t. Mad keen for a walk last night but there were cows in the field far far away. I held him up and he Meerkatted the scene waving his tail furiously until he decided he was safe. Then took off at 100mph (meows per hour) to the ditch worth studying until much later whence he returned wet and filthy and all over me like a (soggy, muddy) rash, purring his socks off.

    Dunno about the 'millions' though I have thought about this quite a lot. Which media is the question.
