A Trip to the Groninger Museum

My owner could get free tickets for a trip to a museum today, so we visited the Groninger Museum.

There was an exhibit about old objects and bones that were found here in Groningen and other places in the north of The Netherlands and Germany.

Pre-historic skulls!
The middle one is of a pig that lived here in Groningen ages and ages ago.

Sullivan: the horned pig!

There was lots of pottery as well. I really liked these pitchers with bearded faces on them.

It was a really cool exhibit and we had a fun afternoon.

Another Trip to Balloërveld

Yesterday the weather was grey, but we decided to made a trip to Balloërveld anyway.

First we visited the large flock of sheep that lives there. The sheep had just gotten a new stable and seemed to be enjoying it.

Next we took a walk across the Balloërveld.

A short rest among the heather.

A red mushroom!
It's a poisonous mushroom so I didn't get too close.

After our walk we had patat (french fries) with Joppie sauce.

A Grasshopper and a Train Ride

When my owner and I got out of work Friday there was a grasshopper on the seat of my owner's bike. It was missing a leg, but could still jump very far away when my owner unlocked the bike.

This weekend my owner had to make a trip and I came along to keep her company.

My owner didn't have time to do something fun with me, but I did get to look out of the window at the scenery outside during our train ride.

A Story without Zombies and Pigs

There was book in the mail for me today.
It's an anthology that was sent to me by Marcella Burnard. One of the stories in the anthology is written by her. I love Marcella's books so I'm eager to read her story.

And she signed the book for me as well!
I'm sure that even without zombies and pigs her story will be cool.

Thanks Marcella!

Beanie Mail with a Piggy

There was a card for me this friday from Beanie.

He sent it because he found a cool piggy stamp he thought I would like.

And I do! Isn't it awesome?

Thanks Beanie!!

Agave Kiss in My Mail

Today I found Agave Kiss by Ann Aguirre in my mail together with a signed bookmark and bookplate. I received the book because I signed up for Ann's newsletter and she rewarded the first 100 subscribers with a book. How cool is that!?

I didn't have Agave Kiss yet, so I'm very happy with it!

Thanks Ann!
