Jasper, Kenny & Ollie at Lacock
Well on last Monday Dad was going to take me & Sydney on the bus to Swindon but a few very heavy showers put paid to that! Tuesday was much better so Dad took Me & Sydney into town on the bus. We went to Blackbridge where we had our lunch over the River Avon watching the canoists. Then after lunch we went to Calne where we saw the old Canal before catching the buses back home again. On Wednesday it was Stacey's half day so Dad & Stacey took Ollie, Jasper and me to Lacock. We had a walk around the village and Jasper kept asking everyone if they were "you alright?" Ollie kept saying Hello to Dad but very quietly and I was my usual self and tended only to talk to the women! Ollie wore his new harness instead of Tahla's and his harness is black. Now our parrents will know which one to take for which bird! After having our coffee and biscuits in the grounds to Lacock Abbey we went across the road to the Red Lion where Dad and Stacey had a pint (Dad's pint was Lager and Stacey's, Orange Juice). On Thursday it was Adam's birthday so Dad took him to the canalside pub at Bathampton. They took me & Sydney with them and we shared their lunch at the pub. I shared Adam's chips (OK Naughty but nice!!!) and Sydney shared Dad's peas. Afterwards we went into Bath where we both spoke to loads of people and then we caught the bus home with the nice lady driver who used to have a parrot herself. Although it was nice on Friday, Mum had a hospital appointment in Swindon and, of course, we couldn't go. But....tomorrow is the first day of Calne Country Music Festival. Now I have been before but not Sydney as we were both in Europe last year but, although he hasn't said anything, I hope they will take me and Sydney for 11 hours of Country Music!!! We'll have to see!
