it's just not cricket

Mr Bingley

I was outside relaxing .. when my curious streak got the better of me ..


so I went forth ...


pausing by the herbs, I had a sudden thought!


I could go on a cricket hunt...!


I took up station on the grass and scrutinised it without blinking for a whole minute.


anything that moved I examined ...


 ... very closely


But this is all I found. I'll hunt again tomorrow!

  1. Aacckk! Gross! Ugh, we hope you didn't eat it. A cricket would be much tastier, we think!

  5. Alas, sweet Bingley. Slugs are nowhere near as much fun as crickets. Hope you have better luck tomorrow!

    Hugs!

  7. We think a cricket would be better because it is crunchy.

    What is that thing in the last photo? First I thought it was someone's sock. But seeing other comments, it might be slug!

  15. Hunt while you are young!! Jake is old enough now that all he chases are the clumps of grass left by the mower...
