WitchPig – The Stories

No sorry I can’t sell tickets to this.

Battery connected fence is live. How do I know it is on…Stuff the instructions grab hold to confirm that it will jolt. CONFIRMED…Later referred to instructions and yes there is an indicator LED highly visible of a night time that shows the fence is pulsing. The Dorgi watches me connect the battery and once again thinks something is suss. He chooses to give it a wide berth. I take a load of washing under the house and open the machine….YELP BARK YELP… I reach down to pick up some clothes and there is a Dorgi wrapped around my feet. (I have no idea what that was but I don’t like it). First load of washing done, coax the Dorgi outside to throw the ball for a while all is going well until someone gets excited and backs into the fence… YELP BARK YELP JUMP… lands at my feet and refuses to play ball anymore. A couple of hours later I am swimming in the pool making a racket, 15 minutes later  YELP BARK YELP… I notice a flash of Dorgi running up the back stairs onto the verandah and sitting int he corner….I start thinking this fence is great he must have  the idea by now…..Well the Witch returns home form a trip in the Country with Jan and is glad she hasn’t had to see the Dorgi get zapped so what does she do stands near the fence and coaxs him into it, funnily enough DORGI GOES YELP BARK JUMP YELP SPRINT away from it. The fence has been live for one week and I don’t think they have contacted each other since…..


Solution to trouble

= ZAP.

How to fix the jumping Dorgi that is going to cost me thousands in shoulder reconstructions. I know lets add electricity into the equation….The Pig purchases an electric fence and 200 metres of suitably infused zapping cable to go with it. The Pig brings it home and puts the fence in place. The Dorgi is stuck  on the chain thinking this doesn’t look too good, ‘I ain’t seen it before but I am not sure if I like it.’ The Dorgi remains chained as I now need a battery. I acquire a battery and recondition it to hold a bit of a charge…..3 days later it is time to go live and let the Dorgi off the chain.

I am all better and am going to continue in my efforts to escape and raid the food of all the other pets in the near vicinity. Yes I know you put in a gate. Yes I know you then went and perspexed it so I couldn’t shimmy through or climb it. Yes I know you closed off your second set of stairs because I found a way out there. Yes I know that is a 4 metre high retaining wall and I ma about a foot high but if I shimmy the first foot before jumping it won’t hurt and I can get to all the food on offer, then sleep at the front door until you wake up and you Will let me in….

Who spent a few days at the vets.

Filed under: Mack our Dorgi — witchpig @ 8:23 am

The Dorgi got extrmely sick. His temperature was nearly 2 degrees above where it is meant to be. He was unresponsive and generally over heating. He was in pain to touch or move. So off to the vets and a pile of antibiotics and other things. Days later he starts to respond and improve….Diagnosis (no idea) possibly a meningococal style of infection but not to sure. He seemed to respond to the super strength anti biotics and has no side affects. Don’t complain pay the money take him home for him to cause more trouble.

Why have we been so quiet.

Filed under: General — witchpig @ 8:19 am

Well we had a storm or two that decided to take out 3 Brisbane suburbs. The level of damage was comparable to that of category 5 cyclones that have hit suburbia. The Pig was a little tied up in the response and managed to put in 118 hours over 8 days all within the incident command structure. When I did sleep, I would wake and picture command boards and jobs as well as phones ringing etc….Glad that the majority of that is now past. I don’t mind putting in the time and enjoy it in a way but I also did my normal job on top of that so averaged around 4 hours sleep a day, not a great example of fatigue management but desperate times call for exceptional measures.

Going to mow the lawn at home tomorrow and deal with a few yard issues that are a few weeks old, should just get on top of it before heading OS to Japan for a few weeks.

It is still running

Filed under: The Mysterious Utility — witchpig @ 8:13 am

Well the Mu is still running, not surprising but not exactly an ideal automobile either. We are still and will always be dirty about the cost of getting it to this stage and the fact that we will never get a roadworthy if we wanted to sell it but hopefully it will go on for a few years yet.

Not a rumour!

Filed under: The Neighbours — witchpig @ 11:11 am

Well, it’s no longer a rumour…truth be known, one of the neighbour’s kids had a belly button pierced….have yet to see it, but heard all about it!


Useless piece of….^$&#%$

Filed under: The Mysterious Utility — witchpig @ 11:10 am

Well, it’s been a while since I updated the Mu thread….probably because I would much rather forget it! The leaking oil turned out to be more than first thought. My mechanic has recommended I not bother fixing the latest and just run it to the ground…or sell it unregistered on ebay!

Decided to drive it as is and then wait for a trade in deal on a newer/better car! Sigh….I guess I found out what was mysterious about this utility!

Cake Toppers

Filed under: The Wedding — witchpig @ 10:57 am

Well, the custom made cake toppers have arrived!! YAH! Actually, they came last Friday, but of course we miss the delivery and don’t make the post office in time. Being the suburbs, they are not open on the weekend so its up early Monday morning to grab them before work!

Before leaving, I get a knock on the door and another parcel has arrived!! Woohoo! Got the little “tux” and “wedding dress” gift bags! They are pretty good for the price.

Picked up the cake toppers. I don’t think “Mack” looks quite right, The “pig” looks a little different and I have a scowl on my face. Other than that, you can tell it’s meant to be us, and should be interesting for the wedding!

Not sure what the Pig has planned for favours for the wedding…apparently something evil…must work that one out….

One more off the list

Filed under: The Wedding — witchpig @ 10:06 pm

Photographer has been booked. Yippppppeeeeee

She knows about the website so this is where we say nice things about the funky lady 🙂

In all seriousness having that one crossed off the list is such a relief and there are far less things on the list then a month ago. If we can keep on top of the game and get these things sorted out earlier, we might get some free time in the future.  Our custom made Cake Topper should arrive within the next fortnight as well.

Feel free to comment on what we should give the guests, I have sinister plans and the Witch has girly, pretty smelling plans.

The Pig.
