Sneeuw in Maart! (Snow in March)

We, and our humans, are amazed by the weather this year. Here it is almost the middle of March and we have snow! We don't have daffodils (narcis) or crocus ( krokus), no we have snow, and if not snow then rain, and rain, and more rain. This is the Netherlands, land of pretty flowers, so we were told. We're rethinking our appointment as Ambassadors to Utrecht.

We're getting really bored! Nothing to do but sleep and eat, and sleep some more, and the occasional raid on the trash bin in the kitchen (keuken). As you can see here, Finn is most accomplished at sleeping.

Two days ago the snow melted and the rain started. Suddenly something interesting in the achtertuin ( back garden) catches Sacha's eyes....

To both our amazement, look who shows up in the back garden to taunt us! Echt vervelend (very annoying) when you can't go outside!

Of course today, it is snowing again ...

So sleep we shall, and dreams of lekkere eend (delicious duck) will have to do for now. If wishes were ducks, we'd be full!

Tot ziens!
Finn & Sacha

PictureGo! - Freeware, Slide-show Program; created by one of our humans.

Tucows gives PictureGo! the "thumbs up". Wow Meow!!

We think you need this easy to use, highly developed, small program!
Check it out. PictureGo!
http://www.picturego.nl/

It's absolutely free, (although donations are appreciated).Tucows gave our male human a '3-cow rating' for this fine slide-show program! The '3-cow rating' makes him a "small software farmer" ; most appropriate for a Dutchman, in our opinions ... *a wink & a smile*
Tot volgende keer! ( till next time) ,

Geen idee! (no idea!)

.
Sacha ~ Hello! Hallo! Hi! Hoi! Meow! ~ Finn

Sacha and Finn here - just two housecats who live in Utrecht, the heart of the Netherlands. We've been appointed, as representatives, to Holland from the planet Cattonia (or in Dutch: Kattonia).
.
Typing is not our strong suit, although walking on the keyboard is actually one of our favorite pastimes. We think we might be getting the hang of this odd form of communication ... we certainly have been paying attention.

Tot ziens! and meow for now,
Finn & Sacha
