What we do in the evening.......

....hello my friends....we try and keep ourselves busy in the evening at Border Terrier HQ.....we have started having #VinylHour.....what's this I hear you ask.....
.....well, we go to the den room with a nice book....and we put on a nice new shiny vinyl record to listen to because we like the warm sound we get from this very old-fashioned way of listening to music....this week we started with a nice book about cycling and some Bob Dylan & The Band......

.....sometimes we use the time to practice our #keepfits stretching for @henryandfriends.....but only on Thursdays......

....Miss Lola is not necessarily so keen on this part of #VinylHour.....

....particularly if she has been out patrolling the hi-ways and byways of Surrey during the day.....(this is a VERY RARE shot of her actually in contact with water....)

.....she prefers her naps in the evening....


.....we have been particularly enjoying this book recently....(yes, Typist got a lot of cycling books for Christmas...its the closest he's allowed to a bike at the moment....)

....suddenly, we found that Miss Lola had joined us in the den.....most unusual.....

.....perhaps she could smell kitten......

No!...she could smell the home made pizza that mum delivered to us for #VinylHour...(*I should just point out that this is a VERY RARE happening.....)

..."Haz a spare slice?"....

...she tried to pretend that she was not that interested in the delicious ham, spinach and egg pizza....

....but she did spend a suspiciously long time hoovering up crumbs and the smallest bit of crust that may have been "dropped" on the rug "accidentally"....

....typist and I got on with the serious job of changing LPs...(*consult Google for some of these technical terms)

....Miss Lola was not to be deterred though....she sat on the arm of the sofa like a bird in a tree....

.....and demanded belly rubs to compensate for not being allowed much pizza....all very distracting for the serious connoisseur at #VinylHour 

...we think she should stick to what she's good at....

.....i found juggling the music, the books, the pizza and the doggies all very taxing....#VinylHour is supposed to be our time to relax....

....Miss Lola has been placed on a stricter diet...SPROUTS!....(*NB: she actually loves sprouts)

.....that's how I send my evenings my friends....its good to replay...here's a relaxing shot of old Marley's spot at Headley Heath....we paid him a visit to say hello last week....

....a big chunk of the #BTposse will join him there on May 11 for a tweet-up...check out the details with @rohanthebt....


Woof...Happy Sunday......Clapton, DJ in Chief BT HQ....

  5. Clapton, #vinylhour sounds like a wonderful way to spend an evening. You have some great LPs there, if I do say so myself. The delivery of homemade pizza though would have been a distraction to me as well...I would have had to help Lola with the hoovering. So glad you paid our Marley a visit. I sure do miss the old boy.
    *high paws* for a great week,
