152. The Grass Is Always Greener On The Other Side – by Monty


The original foundations

As you may recall, Chicken and I had worked very hard to dig out the foundations of our race track. The whole project had been fully approved by the government, to the best of my knowledge, so I foresaw no problems. Unfortunately, my plans had to be put on hold when Arky-Ollie-Just cordoned off the whole area without offering any explanation. The portable green fencing also denied us entry to my pit, which I was particularly annoyed about.


Unnecessary portable green fencing


Overgrown and ruined

This fencing remained in place for just over two weeks, rendering my project behind schedule. In addition to this, the foundations gradually disappeared, ruining all our hard work. When the fencing finally came down, the whole area was a disgrace. It was completely covered in thick, new grass which Arky-Ollie-Just immediately set about cutting. I checked over the whole area for any security breaches, of which there were none.



I’m pleased to report, that only four days later, the foundations for the race track have been re-done, and the project is now back on schedule, with an estimated completion date of early November. I do believe that both Arky-Ollie-Just and The Fairy were pleasantly surprised at the speed with which we rebuilt our track.


Right back where we started

  1. Mum says I can run rings round her but that’s only metaphorically – mostly I just snooze on my cushion. You are much more energetic than me Chicken. Monty too. But of course mud is so very good for the skin. Roll on, and indeed, roll in Autumn rainy days. Xxx

    • Good for the skin, eh? I think I will roll in it tomorrow and then come inside to check myself in the mirror. I’m sure The Fairy won’t mind.

  2. Excellent work! I did not see this result coming so quickly. I am pleasantly surprised. The track looks awesome. I can’t wait till it rains.

    Love and licks,
