SkyWatch Friday & Post #193....

Some of this week's skies....the first a sunset from our kitchen window and the rest from Sunday's jaunt down the A9.

Sunrise over a misty Lochindorb.

An eye in the sky....is this LA?

Could almost be Tellytubby Land, if the sheep were giant rabbits!

To see more beautiful skies from all over the world visit SkyWatch Friday


This is our 193rd post which means a week from today, Friday May 1st will be our 200th! And on Tuesday 5th May Snoop will be 5 years old! To celebrate we are going to run a small prize draw. Anyone who comments on our 200th post between the time it goes on and the time Snoop's Birthday post goes on will be entered into the draw. We will schedule both posts so that they go on just after midnight (GMT), the first on Friday and the second the following Wednesday, but the comment MUST appear on the 200th post, which will be clearly entitled "Post #200". Comments will be numbered in the order that they appear and for the draw we'll use a random number picker. Obviously to play along you must be happy to let us have your postal address. We haven't decided yet what the prize will be, maybe it will be a brand new car, maybe some of Snoop's nail clippings....probably neither!


Our Kerry Blue buddies, theBuster, Ms. Persephone & Ms. Blue gave us this cool award, thank you so much! The twins, Sephie & Buster are 6 years young today, so while you're over checking them out you get to wish them a Happy Barkday too, how cool is that?

We must link to the blog that gave us the award....dunnit!

We must list 7 things we love...ummm, how to choose just seven..?

We love going for long walks in forests and on beaches.

We love getting belly rubs and back scratches.

We love that we get more mail than our humans...unless you count the bills, hehe!

We love going for long journeys in the metal thingy with round feet.

We love snoozing in a sunbeam.

Shhhh....we LOVE chasing bunnies and deer and eating their poop.

And we love all the wonderful friends we've made through our blog....especially YOU!

Now we must list 7 blogs that we love, again with the seven??....ok, here goes....Noah for just being Noah....Ludo for being a master trickster....Ms. P and Cinza for being funny cats....Penny for being a sweetie....Hamish, cos we've met him and he's so coooool....Joe Stains for making our Mum so helpless with laughter that she's putty in our paws, hehe....and Jake & Fergi for explaining the difference between moose poop and goose poop...and they really are two special Wires :D

Beautiful skies, awards, birthdays and swimming, that is a great post if ever I saw one. We should coordinate our swim times so that when we are able to sneak off we can meet. =) xoxo to my Alfie.

Hi Guys, congrats on the award, and also on your momentous posting!

200 posts is going some!

My J has been very lazy with her blogging since returning, I will have to nag her into getting back in front of the computer.

Have a grrrrrrreat weekend, lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxxxxx

Momo said...

I especially like the first photo. It's so grandeur! Thank you for sharing splendid photos again.

Hamish Westie said...

Ah those blue skies..... We had them too in Aberdeen earlier this week, but sadly not today. I shall have to rely on your blog to brighten my day.
Oh and thanks very much for nominating me for an award. But I can't accept because Gail has decreed that I'm big-headed enough as it is, and any awards would only make thinks worse. (I think she may be just a wee bit jealous. Maybe if she gets her PhD thingy, she'll change her mind..)
Cheers, H.

Alexander said...

Hi Snoop, Alfie, Rosie, and Gabbi! Beautiful sky pictures! That's exciting about 200 posts and Snoop's birthday coming up. We just posted #97, so we're getting close to a big number, too.

See ya!

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Skywatch is getting more and more exciting for me. I am only new and now I am exploring all avenues around the world. Your wonderful pictures are magnificent but the one that is most nearest to my heart is the picture of the sheep as big as rabbits in your Tubbyland. Great Scot! (sorry for removing. there was a horrible typo, very sorry).

Rosie said...

Hi - I just realized that we have 2names in common Rosie of course and one of the cats in my house is Gabby BOL

A question - when your mommy throws those treats do you share or is it first come first serve?

Loves from pugs,
Rosie Marie
