Mum the apprentice.

Howdy Mates.  Mum's been trying her hand at being a builder's labourer and a painter in the last week and we're not surprised to say she says she's not cut out for either.  It started when we got some new doors and they had to be stained.  We gotta admit, mostly dad  mum did a good job.  The doors look good and we can see through them now.  We can't wait to see what kind of slobber and nose art we can achieve on them. 

Our new front door.  Lets in heaps of lovely light.

 Our new passage door.
Hey, I can see ya, but I can't get to ya???

Now, how does this thing open?

That better not be the sound of a treat bag being opened.

Then to finish off her apprenticeship, she helped out at our sissy's new home cause they are building a retaining wall.  Well, with arms that have the strength of two pieces of long cooked spaghetti, mum didn't last too long.  Just long enough that she couldn't raise her arms above her head the next day ahahahahaha.  
Meanwhile back at the ranch, er house, Rory slept like a log near the back door.  On guard, and ever alert.  

Have a great week mates.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory



  1. Stella and Rory - you are gonna looove those doors - couldn't be more perfect for nose artists extraordinaire. Poor Mum with the arms though, that happens to me most days after gym!

  2. Crikey .... those doors look great. Your Mum did a very good job and how good that you can see what's going on even if you can't get in. You'll have a great time decorating them, aye?? I'm VERY talented in the nose art department if you need any help.
    Spaghetti arms ..... crikey ..... hope your Mum recovers ok!!

  3. The door looks fabulous and yes it just needs a bit of slobber art and it will be prefect. LOL Big R we can see you take your Homeland Security duty very seriously. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. G'Day to you dear furends,
    OMD that door is really BEAUTIFUL... We have never seen one with the windows done that way and we LOVE it. You will be really busy making nice Nose Art on it... THAT will be the Final Touch that will say to visitors.... WELCOME... THIS is a TRUE HOME...
    OMD that Other door needs a Doggy Door in it though.

  10. Hi Stella Down Under,
    That is a beautiful door and once you and Rory get your various levels of nose art up there, it will be even better. My Mom thinks she can do anything like that but the truth is she can't. Must be old age.

  15. That is a very nice door, except for the missing nose art of course.

    Your Pals,

  16. Those new doors are beautiful and designed with you in mind - greal lookout spots and lots of room for nose art. Our Mom says she has spaghetti arms too, hard to believe with all the babies she has cared for:)

  18. We think Rory had the right *blugh* prefer to snoopervise.
