I've had a funny four days, two ups and two downs
Lets start with an up,
I got my photo in the paper, not just the local free one, but the county one!
I have an ear infection
I have been to the vets and got me medicine
The vet says I have to lose weight!
How that's the quickie post!!!
If you would like to know the full version them please read on
I do warn you it is a long post!
It all started on Thursday, dad gets a phone call from John the landlord of The Crown in Oakengates, Dads playing at a folk day in the pub, the paper wanted a photo, so peeps knew it was on.
He was just about to go out the door and I stopped him. Hang on dad, what about me, I'm a local at the pub and put up with your playing and singing all the time at home!!
(maybe that's where me ear infection has come from!!)
So off we go to the pub, the photographer said I was a natural LOL
Friday, Mom gets the paper there we are page 19 in
The Shropshire Star.
Friday morning was when mom noticed me right ear, I'd tried to tell her before going to bed!!
It sounded all watery when she massaged it. Now I have had this with my left ear not that long ago, so she's straight on the phone to get me to the vets.
Turned out the only appointment we could get was Saturday at 11.50.
The idea was that mom would go and take some photos of dad playing, then come and pick me up later, I was quite happy about this, like I say I get to hear him all the time, so bit of a break is always welcome. Well that went out the window, dads playing at 12.30, so we just had time to go the vets then straight to the pub to catch dad.!
I got checked over, ears cleaned out, pain killing jab, ear drops put in, and to top it off got weighted,
oh no. seems I need to loose a bit.
I'll get back to that later.
Anyways we turned up at the pub, and there're Morris Dancers!! we stopped and watched, then it was time to go and see dad.
Dad and Andy
They played, Mingulay Boat Song, Pale Shelter, Home For a Rest (tell me about it!) and Tainted Love!! don't think that's a folk song ! you can YouTube the songs to see want they sound like, mom needs to get sorted with a video recorder! or maybe not LOL
Lord Brockon (he's not a real Lord he's in character) and Dad accompanying him on the guitar, to Waltzing Matilda and Walk on The Wild Side, now there was tears coming down moms checks, I didn't think it was that funny, but according to her they are not the proper words to the song!!! you peeps do some weird things! Looking at the photo dad looks like he's got a bad ear to!
While I'm laying there I notice something behind the bar and got mom to take a photo,
Have a look
no don't think you can see it on that one, "take one closer mom"
"By George" on a pump clip , will put this in my collection, thanks you to all of you that have sent me emails of photos, I have loved looking at them and will be doing a post soon with them all on.
Now this brings me to beer, hope you are still all awake I did tell you it was going to be a long post!
Have a closer look at the poster behind Dad not the Folk one
The Telford BEER Festival,
Its The British Biggest Cooled Hand Pulled Pub-Based Beer Festival. that's a mouth full.
Anyways, if the rumours are true, one of the brewery's is naming a beer after me ME, thanks to John the landlord.
They have come up with some names, Saturday Steps, George's T'ale, or Georges Lead (For P.C. reasons we can't have George the Lad BOL). I will have to wait and see.
This is just a one off beer, peeps come from all over to taste the beers ciders and perries and tick them off a scratchers list. So will keep you posted on that one.
Hang on that's a BIG UP
Back to my so called weight problem, the vet said, give him carrots as a treat, yes you heard right CARROTS, no sooner had we got home and mom gives me one!
Now I don't mind carrots, but some meat and gravy might make it a bit more appetizing!
So I've got to go without my lovely golden paddy-wacks. Some of you have said I have very white teeth, I put it down to eating paddy-wacks, it breaks up like that floss stuff you peeps use,
We're at the end of the post, that took my mind off me ear, I think it is just a little bit better.
"Mom time for a walk me thinks"
See Yea George xxx
