Hi, yesterday I spotted a real mouse scurrying round my garden! I gave him a name that I can't repeat.

Names for your mice, the obvious would be Mickey and Minnie, but they are quite old fashioned. I will go for:

Marcus and Magenta.

27 Jan, 2009

 

LOL Now Thats Very Funny Sarah :D Marcus &Magenta very Different Marge :)

27 Jan, 2009

 

Bubble n Squeek ! :o)

27 Jan, 2009

 

They look like the two little chipmunks Chip n ' Dale remember them ? ( means something else entirely these days ! )

Jane suggests Sugar and Spice.

Ps I do hope that mystery prize isnt the one you won at Christmas Jacque ! lol

27 Jan, 2009

 

NO WAY thats MINE :) xxx

27 Jan, 2009

 

Jacque,
We think they should be given topical names and called 'Jonathan' and 'Russell' because they both look like they could be rather naughty, and we hope they don't use offensive language in the garden!

Bonkers- Chip n dales....... hope you're not suggesting mice who do a strip act.

Jacque will start blushing and become all embarrassed.

(oooh we are naughty!)
xxxx

27 Jan, 2009

 

My Son K has a Friend named Jonathan :) Hes Very Tall & Doenst Use Offensive Language lol Thanx Grenville/Alan :) xxx

27 Jan, 2009

27 Jan, 2009

27 Jan, 2009

27 Jan, 2009

 

I'm smiling here reading all he comments above, oh dear, this is difficult, how about Ken & Deirdre, lol.

27 Jan, 2009

 

What Dawn with their history ? ... OMG do they come apart Jacque in that case or come with lots of baggage ?

Antique furniture LOL Jacque very good poor things if they strip their coats off surely be down to the bare bones ..

27 Jan, 2009

 

Well Dawns, thinking about Corrie I wonder, as mice are quite timid creatures, if Roy and Hayley might be suitable names.

27 Jan, 2009

 

He, he BB. OK then, how about Homer & Marge, they've been together forever - no offence to our GOY Marge, lol.

27 Jan, 2009

 

We dont know if they are male and female to be fair, so probably Roy and Hayley would be very appropirate Ginelle, lol.

27 Jan, 2009

 

Lol Dawn.

27 Jan, 2009

 

How about Fred & Alma or Bonnie & Clyde or Posh & Becks or even better Charles & Camilla ,I can picture them at Highgrove .lol

27 Jan, 2009

 

Jacque..Jane here again...can I have another go ? Custard and Cream.....

27 Jan, 2009

 

Going along the lines of Yes, No and Maybe perhaps If and When would be appropriate names for your new pets.

27 Jan, 2009

 

how about Sam and Ella lol

27 Jan, 2009

 

Aw Irish Sam and Ella ? - thats sick lol

27 Jan, 2009

 

Hi Jacque - i was all set to suggest Twitchit and Squeak, but see Squeak has already made it onto the list!

This should make your daughter smile: our cat's real name is Socks (tho he hardly ever gets called that now) When my little brother (41) heard that, he said we should get another one and call him Pants : ))
Yes, i admit it, i hail from a family of nincompoops.

27 Jan, 2009

 

Looks like Bob & Bindi to me...

28 Jan, 2009

 

Well, that fruit looks over-ripe, perhaps a bit too fermented, so I've thought of "Hiccery" and "Diccery" Dock.. Watch 'em, or they may become 2 "blind drunk" mice! ;-)

Or, Caroline, Mork and Mindy Mouse? Oh no, thanks Jacque, another sleepless night ahead!!

Burp and Berry, Tum and Jerry, Daryl (Hall (e)) Berry and John (field of) Oates....right, I'm off to bed to count sheep!

28 Jan, 2009

Ohhh, you all have me in stitches here. What a sense of humour. You've made my day. When I was reading about new little field mice I really thought they were real mice. I am a little disappointed. I started giggling reading Marge's comment, then Dawnsaunt, then Jacque with the Chippendale furniture, then Grenville. Ohh ohh ohh. Some names you guys think of.
Well I only know of one mouse, wasn't it Jerry??? And I can't win the seeds anyway, we're not allowed to import seeds, lol. The other one could be Tom? LOL!

Ok...running out of time..Jane here..Pip and Squeak !

29 Jan, 2009

 

In that case Dawnsaunt it should be, Lady & Gagga..:))

29 Jan, 2009

 

Hi Jacque,
My suggestions are:
Chalk and Cheese.
Basil and Sybil
Mice are associated with cheese. Photographers tell their subjects to say cheese when having their photo taken and one of the mice is looking at the camera. The other mouse looks the same but is not looking at the camera so they sort of fit the saying chalk and cheese. The white on their faces and under bellies looks chalky too. Now I hope you are going to be able to explain all this to your daughter when she comes to choose the winner. My second suggestion was obviously inspired by faulty towers - they had a rat in one episode, not quite a mouse I know. Basil can be grown in the garden as well.

I thought maybe your daughter would think more like my grand daughter so I e-mailed her for ideas she suggested:-
Bernard and Perla
Robbie and Chuckles
She struggled to come up with names from children's films with mice in but it was bed time when I asked. I think these suggestions are just names she likes. Chuckles goes with Chuck as in Chuck Berry - Rasberry. So another suggestion from me is:
Chuck and Berry

29 Jan, 2009

 

Starsky and Hutch
Kate and Leopold
Spic and Span
Mrs Brisby and Justin (The secret of Nimh)
Bernard and Miss Bianca (The Rescuers)
Matthias and Cornflower (Redwall)

29 Jan, 2009

 

Lady Gilli mon Cheri - I think you should explain the significance of each of your suggestions. In view of the number of suggestions you have made that should keep you busy until the competition closes (and hopefully stop you making more suggestions. lol)

29 Jan, 2009

 

Gilli..I had thought of Brisby..I loved the Secret of Nihm and so did my children...they even named the car I drove as a single mom of 4 children, Brisby...they all still love that car...it was some sort o f a little wagon..cannot even remember now what it was..that was over 20 years ago..lol...had not thought that Nihm was that long ago...

29 Jan, 2009

 

Hmmm, GF...Starsky and Hutch???? No significance that I can see....I just liked the names. Kate and Leopold from the movie of the same name. A love story. These two mice are obviously very much in love.
Spic and Span....These are very clean, neat and tidy mice....need I say more?
Mrs Brisby and Justin....from the story and movie "The Secret of Nimh" or "Mrs Brisby and the rats of Nimh". Mrs Brisby and Justin team together to save Mrs Brisby's children from the plowing.
Bernard and Miss Bianca are two mice friends from the Disney movie "The Rescuers"
Matthias the mouse hero wages battle against the evil rat Cluny the Scourge to save Redwall Abbey. He falls in love with the lovely mouse Cornflower and they subsequently marry and have children....From a book by the name of "Redwall Abbey"...the first in a series of books by Brian Jacques (A fitting name I thought considering the author of this blog)

30 Jan, 2009

 

Cj....My kids and I loved the Secret of Nihm movie too. I love the story of your kids naming your car Brisby. LOL

Jacque - Bill and Ben were the original flower pot people. I thought the flowerpot people are the sworn enemies of good GOY members. An article appeared in the Observer on 20/04/08:- Are Bill and Ben trashing the planet? Flowerpot men sell us 500 million plastic containers every year in the UK, most of which end up in landfill. I saw your blog on newspaper flowerpots as well and thought you might have been a flower pot person when I read it. I never said anything about it at the time because it was environmentally friendly. Now that you have named the mice flowerpot people it confirms my suspicion that you are indeed a flower pot person. I was very shocked to discover you have created these flowerpot mice that are not to be trusted and you realise TT will need to be alerted. I think you should clarify was it Bill or was it Ben that ate the rasberry? You might need to reconsider your decision as a grave mistake may been made here. Goodbye Bill, Goodbye Ben. Bill & Ben, Bill & Ben, Flower Pot Men.

1 Feb, 2009

 

My cat Larry heard about Bill and Ben and said:-" By Jinksy, I hate those flower pot meeces to pieces! "

^..^

1 Feb, 2009

 

Thufferin Thuccotash! I taut I taw a puddy tat! Is that Sylvester or Larry ? Look over there - Could that be Speedy Gonzales, the fastest mouse of Mexico or two mice I can’t tell?

1 Feb, 2009

 

Gardeningfriend....maybe it was Little Weed that ate the raspberry......mmmmm.

1 Feb, 2009

 

Well done Donna.......my Bill and Ben flowerpot men are out in the cold today waiting for the snow to arrive.....
well done to you Jacque as well.... got all our brains working.....and had a good laugh.....

1 Feb, 2009

 

Haha Greenfingers ( that's on your cats tom and jerry, lol ) This is the longest running show I think on GOY. Even better than Agathy Christies Mousetrap, lol. Good for you Donnah winning the name contest. Glad that one's outof the way, hahaha.

1 Feb, 2009

 

Greenfingers - Thank you for your very clever suggestion. I am sorry to tell you this but little weed turned into the tree that got cut down. It now lies between the flowerpot mice in the photo. So it could not have been little weed, could it? I am pretty sure it was either Bill or Ben as you can see one of them is holding the rasberry just before it got eaten. I think Jacque has gone shopping with another flowerpot person (her daughter)- so was it Bill or was it Ben? I can't tell the difference - can you?

1 Feb, 2009

 

Back from Shopping GF :) Glad so many of u enjoyed the little Comp :) Its been fun i must agree :)

2 Feb, 2009

 

My BIll and Ben have found the snow....lol

2 Feb, 2009

 

lol I bet they love that Holly have u made them their own Sledge? Theyd love 1 of those im sure:)

2 Feb, 2009

 

I've enjoyed the blog and I am disappointed that I didn't see mickey and minnie get at least an honorable mention. LOL I do like bill and ben.

3 Feb, 2009

 

Marge mentioned Micky & Minnie in the second suggestion... at least... at the top...LOL...my eye hand control is getting good exercise scrolling up and down..LOL...

3 Feb, 2009

 

lol apparently mine isn't there...I scrolled several times and apparently missed them. either that or alzhiemers setting in LOL

3 Feb, 2009

 

hmmmm...kmcue7...not sure what could've done that?....Jaque...?computers..probably ate them....seems to happen now and again....welcome to GOY by the way!...Fellow US Gardener...lol...~Cat

3 Feb, 2009

 

My Pc may have eaten those names Cat? Its been a rite pain last few days not been able to log on 2 any net work:(

3 Feb, 2009

 

Thought you'd been a bit quiet Jacque.
I hope your Pc behaves itself. :o)
I've just seen the alert about the Flower Pot People.
We need to call in The Two Ronnies to solve this one ~

The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town.
Might need to also ask Spike Milligan and David Jason ~
They were in on it too. Raspberries were being blown all over the place.

Could be a connection with the Flower Pot People.
I already have Holly's Bill and Ben on my photo pages for close scrutiny. xxx

3 Feb, 2009

 

HHHhhhhhhmmmm Phantom Raspberry Blower ? Now whats thats out of TT ? I remember the Phantom Flan Flinger from Tiswas :) "How I Love Chris Tarant" Mmmmmmmmmmmm i could Sit & Listen 2 that Man All Nite HHHHHHHHHhuuuuuuuuu :) lol

4 Feb, 2009

 

The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town is on old recordings of The Two Ronnies BBC TV show, starring Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker. It was a comical serial as part of the weekly comedy show.

The Phantom Flan Flinger sounds equally bizarre. LOL.

Seems like your PC is okay now ?

Raspberry flan anyone ? :o)
