I will have to copy a post I did on Letterdash to get this announcement across, or I wouldn’t get it across:

*picture a meerkat punching paws in the air, pulling shirt over head and charging across the field, doing a series of somersaults, and generally acting like a total idiot in true football tradition, seeing it is john… er, lavvy… er, toilet… er, bog… er, jazz… er, oh yes – WC – time!*

My turd… er, third… movement is done and appears as the turd… er, third item in my badge player.  Ergo, those with ten-and-a-half minutes to spare and no bandwidth problems, are invited to click on it and listen in.  As usual, in the triumph of completing a long bit of music I am convinced that it exceeds the achievement of crushing wheat and mixing it up with water and yeast and heat and stuff, and then dividing the result with a sharp implement.  This feeling does wear off after a while, and I am happy if after that flush of enthusiasm dies down I still like the music.  The second movement passed that test, and I hope the third-running-into-fourth will as well.

As you will gather, I couldn’t leave it alone.  Between interruptions of trying to figure out where the Collies were getting out (yet again – regular readers will know that this is a contest that has been going on for years) and a visit (ugh, yetch, retch, shudder) to the dentist again, I tinkered furiously all day until all the bits on playback that made me pause and say, ‘Eh?’ stopped doing that.  I then had to replace an MP3 conversion I had already done too prematurely, but at least I hadn’t loaded it yet.

Anyway, I have finished with our tooth-fairy (or gay fang-fixer) for some time, I hope.

The Collies are giving me great looks of disgust.  I discovered their latest route hidden down a very overgrown bank, and blocked it with great ingenuity and lots of obstacles.  They seriously wanted to get out to have some words with a couple of Dalmatians that had dropped by to offer insults through the gate after doing their own Houdini thing on their owner – that also happens periodically –  and were really frustrated to find that they are again confined.  I have no doubt they will apply their little doggy minds to the problem and give me a new conundrum fairly soon…

    Congratulations! Very well done!

    As I have no band-with problem I can listen to beautiful music to my hearts content while working on the computer.
    Thank you. 😉

    Keep up the good work.

    Aha! I’m glad to see that you got their escape route sorted! Now beware… dem collies are clever critters and will find another route very very quickly. I’m going to listen tonight when I get home – I don’t have earphones here and I can’t hear so well at the airport… 😦

    Wonderful feeling of satisfaction when something is done and you can sit back and relax. My dog is disguted by some other dogs who roam around free all over the place here. I can’t understand that people just don’t make a plan to keep their dogs locked in. Have a great day Col!!

    Nope … not happening. Why don’t you also put them on YouTube, with a link?
    Oh … here it comes … but the third item says Second … never mind I’m enjoying it.
