A Scrumping They Go

P1030517Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. This afternoon, mummy, daddy and sister left Me  and Nellie at home with a delicious bone each and disappeared.  Mummy said they were going down to pick some apples from Neighbour Paul’s apple tree.  Soon they were back with three boxes of apples, which daddy is going to take down to Wellington for a friend who wants to make apple brandy. Me and Nellie do not know what apple brandy is and mummy says it is not something We should be interested in.

Do you like the photos of daddy with a stick insect on him. It jumped on him when he was out in the garden.

P1030429P1030432Me Me and Nellie do not like strange insects.  They might bit Us.  Mummy says there is only one poisonous creature in New Zealand and that is a Katipo spider.  These spiders live in sandy coastal beaches and are very rare.  Love Nellie and Jasper.  Off We go.  It is almost time for our evening dinner and We must remind mummy.  Sometimes she forgets.

  1. Yikes that is a big stick insect. Apple brandy sounds very nice.
    Have a super Saturday.

  2. Your insect looks a little like a prawn, is it eatable? Is apple brandy the same like the booze they made in france, named Calvados?

  3. Did you get to taste the apples before they went to make brandy? Have a great weekend.
