The Saga of the Escapee Guinea Pigs - an Update

Say hello to Moe Moe formally known as the escapee Ricki   but fortunately hunted down and   caught by the daring and heroic Aunty Laura.
Happy Much?
 and this is where you store them apparently.. down your top.

Try and escape now Rodent!!!


How was she caught? Well it wasnt by my trap tho she was sitting at the end of this pipe teasing me.

 and it wasnt the entisement of a lovely home with food and water.
 nor was it using The Captains strange idea of a mower  catcher full of grass and food hmmm?
 Nope Laura caught it via a fish net.LOL Now for Misty-Bloom well we have given on her  up so will be off to buy a new GP well 2 more  very soon.And that is the end (we think) of the saga of the runaway guinea pigs.

 Now in other news vintage treasure hunting ...

A pair of vintage shoes that fit me perfectly $2.50
 a cute treasure bag box and Betty Boop bag .( I know not vintage but cute yes?
 Vintage purse (love) $3 and inside was the tiny one with engraved frame.Happy happy me, me

 another Home Journal and 2 great music books all 10c each and look at those girls A must to frame I think.
 Oh and after seeing someone on Facebook with a huge collection of vintage swimmers I thought Id start growing mine Think these are 70s/80s? and will make my collection in total of 5 wow lol

Arrgggh! Glad you found the piglet :) What a rascal! You know how I feel about bunnies and guinea pigs so I wont go on and on about how cute they are! Chomby got de-sexed on monday and I've had problems with the swelling, but he seems to be doing a bit better today!

Hahahaha love how you call the GP a rodent coz that's what The Phoenix calls B's when it's squeaking crazily!! But I'm so glad you found the little bugger and look at the smile on her face - sweet relief!! If there was anyone who was gonna get the GP it would have been Miss Laura Lovely Legs - that woman is sassy and fearless!!! xoxo
