My Birthday Outting

7.00 on the morning of my birthday, opened the front door to this

Snow, the first of the year, well for us anyway, mom says she ordered it for my birthday, yea right pull the other one.

The Winning Vote was for us to go to the Water fall.

Dad had come home from work on Thursday and said he had got to work all day Saturday!!! yes working on my Birthday, so mom phoned up her mate Bridget you know the one that took the photos for the interview, to see if she would like to go. Good job she said yes she's very good at shoveling snow and gritting the road!!

So we set off at 8.00 we got within about a mile of it when the road was just to bad to take the car any further, we got out and walked the last mile

Can you see it

Getting closer

You'll have to come up here

Wow, look at that

I'll shut up now and leave you with the photos

Bridget is on this photo just to give it some scale

Niagara Falls are 180 feet high, Pistyll Rhaeadr is 240 feet, I'm going to let mom fill you in with some of the details.

Thanks George, it is such a beautiful place, we did have problems getting there, the snow was not deep but solid ice underneath, it took us over half hour to get up a very small incline, by shoveling the snow and putting grit down which the farmers leave by the side of the lane. We decided it would be safer to park the car and walk.
What you don't get with the photos is the noise of the water, the photo of George looking to the right was him mesmerised by it. It was not safe to start moving around to get the best photos, plus it was so cold. But as soon as the snow goes we will be going back.
A big thank must go to Bridget as without her there we would not have made it.

Well I had a great time, and like mom says we will be coming back, with Dad next time and Bridget cus she would like to see it again. 
It all added up to a very memorable birthday, and that's not the end of it, on the way back mom stopped and got me a Porkie Pie and some Wrekin white cheese to take down the pub in the evening but that's another post.   
See Yea George xxx

My Birthday Steps

"Mom will you open this Door"

"Mom PLEASE my friends are waiting for me"

Hello, there you are, thanks for joining me today on My 1st Birthday. As you can see this is my front door step, no place like home, so the saying goes!

This post is in two half's, I started doing the post and got up to 30 photos, when blogger had a fit and didn't save any of it!!! so me and mom decided it was safer to do it this way, it also should make it load quicker.

I have a couple of things to say before we start. In the last month I have found out that there are three other bloggie friends that share the same Birthday as me ! so please pop by there blogs as it is a special day for them to.

She is 17 to 19 years old. We don't know for sure.
She came to us the first day of Jan 1998. She had been spayed and she
had had several litters of kittens before being spayed, so the vets
said she was between 3 to 5 years old. He thought she was older maybe
than that!!

I could show you were mom hides all the Christmas ribbon and bows upstairs.
