Frolic, Damn You!

26 Apr

The thrushes and tits and finches were singing their heads off all afternoon. I propped open the back door for the cats and rabbit to go out and play in the sunshine. Broccles flolloped out without a moment’s hesitation, and spent the next several hours dancing. The cats watched him warily.

Of course, every time I pointed the camera at him, he stopped frolicking and began to eat the heads off a clump of dandelions instead…,

or dug at a molehill.

Finally, at dusk, I caught some frolics on video. Here they are.

    You live on a busy road. About as busy as the road that I live on, and I live in the middle of the city.

    Who’s the guinea pig that shows up toward the end of the video.

      That’s Barry, with a hint of Colin in the shrubbery near him.

        Can’t remember who I thought it was but I was thinking Barry I think.

        I think there is too much thinking going on in that sentence.

    Critters are very uncooperative about cameras. I had much the same trouble with everything at the weekend (eg newts, damselflies and beeflies).

    He gets about a lot, even if not much of it is by way of frolicking.

    People searching this blog by the tag “tits” are likely to be disappointed in this video, however.
