Good evening to Mum's blogger friends. This is Ambrose and at last I have a turn to post about we kitties in the house. Skabby, the dog has happily been on a walk, so Mum will post about him later.
I'm currently writing my blog from my cottage in the Drakensberg, Champagne Valley, Kwa-Zulu Natal; South Africa

The Hedges KItties

Visitors in the garden
Good afternoon dear Blogger friends. It's been raining, raining and raining some more this week. The result is Skabby and I cannot get out for a walk, Not at all.
I delved back into my archives and found photos to post today. At the bottom of my garden is a shed where calves are sometimes held to gain mass. Noy for any dire reasons, but that they are in condition when they join the older cows who graze all day and are milked twice daily.
One morning a few months ago, I walked out onto my veranda to see two calves grazing on my lawn and in my vegetable garden. Skabby was just about to chase them but I called him and he came in immediately.

Hedges animal world intact
Good morning to Mum's Blogger friends; this is Ambrose with a post about the Hedges kitties and dog.
As always we're very well cared for, loved, fed and housed. Although, I must say, I have slept outdoors on the veranda for a L O N G time now. It's very hot and every night I ask Mum to let me out and I sleep on a patio cushioned chair. Under the folds of the tablecloth.
During the day I like to rule the roost by sitting on Mum's new fridge or posing like a lion on the kitchen floor.

Our first walk in a week!
Good afternoon dear Blogger friends. After the heavy rains in the first two weeks of February, it was impossible for me to walk along the farm roads. Skabby would have been fine but he needs me with him.
Great excitement at 7am today: We went out for our first walk since last Saturday.

70 and no celebration
Dear Blogger friends. Thank you for the wonderful wishes from you all.
The one person who always shared my birthday week, was Grant, now gone these past three years and three months.
Today, had he lived, he would have been 70.
I remember his 60th : we were living in Kenya, in the Great Rift Valley. If you click on this link here, you will see the great montage I created for Grant. Below is just one of the interesting images from that blog post.
When we retired to the Central Drakensberg, Grant was involved in the weekly Parkrun; he had a building project which was a week off completion when he passed away and he hiked in the mountains with friends.
May you be at rest now, dear Grant

Ambrose blogging at last
Good morning to Mum's blog friends; this is Ambrose at last. Mum has been sooooo busy at the computer that I have just lain on the fridge top and looked down on her desk.
All is well with the Hedges Kitties and doggy. Skabby is regalated to the veranda during the day because his paws get wet from the grass and he messes the floors.
What's that Mum? Oh RE - LA- GA- TED to the veranda. Below is the photo of him looking in while Mama sits on a small stool and looks out.

Amethyst Sunbird female and juvenile
Dear Blogger friends. Thank you for your kind wishes for my birthday. I have been inundated with phone calls, WhatsApp messages and Facebook greetings.
Just after Christmas, I saw Mama sitting on my bed and gazing out of the window. When I drew closer, I saw she was birdwatching. I grabbed my camera and managed to get several photos of a mother bird and her youngster sitting on a tree just outside the window.
During one of our cleanup sessions at The Bunker, I rescued a praying mantis sitting on the units WiFi dongle.
Good morning dear Blogger friends. Another year has passed and I am a year older. Today is my 68th birthday.
Like for everyone else, the past year has been weird but I am ultra grateful that from necessity, I have discovered the joys and rewards of working online. From our first hard lockdown on 27 March 2020, the weight loss company that I work for, went virtual.
For me this was the best thing that ever happened to me. I have founds passion and gleaned satisfaction from assisting people from all over the world, to lose weight and keep it off the healthy way.
Revisiting the fun way to alter images on the screen too, (as taught by my friend, Sandra many years ago), I add a few photos here below.
