Hello. I am trying to convince the woman that feeding time begins an hour earlier than usual. She remains steadfast and resolute and the feeding time hasn't changed one iota. It gets dark here between 3:30 and 4:00PM... and the central heating kicks in just after 4:00. Therefore, I am trying to get my feeds over and done-with before the sun sets and just as the radiator heats up. I shall continue howling from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM because sometimes this wears her down.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
When the woman first moved over to England, she threw down some mean Thanksgiving dinners... turkey from the butcher... home made stuffing... the works. However, I've noticed that with each passing year her Thanksgiving dinners are getting more and more sparse. This year it looks like she's bought a pre-packaged chicken breast with stuffing and some roasted vegetables. By the way, she didn't make these pies. I found this picture on the internets.
Anyhoo... here's' hoping that you all get a piece of turkey or chicken or ham today. Pumpy and I will insist that we get our share, of course.

The Christmas cactus is blooming and I'm quite surprised because the woman has no green thumb. Yet... it is happily blossoming and this means that Christmas is coming. Pumpy looks lovingly at it because he would like to eat it but it sits out of our reach.
The days are shorter and colder. Here we all are taking an afternoon nap.

The dog who lives here has a very unbalanced face. She has one white whisker on the right side of her face and eight white whiskers on the left side of her face. It's ever so peculiar. I can't help but stare at her throughout the day. I wonder if she needs corrective surgery?

This is what an autumn day looks like here in Surrey. When it's not raining, you can take walks through the countryside and stop at local pubs for a lager or an ale and enjoy the beauty of old England.
I don't know this for a fact because I don't like to leave the house unless it's to eat a plant out in the garden. But the woman tells me these things and I believe her.
