MYSTERY THEFTS

Alarming reports of bamboo disappearing from gardens !

The thefts started in Scotland and then worked their way southwards ...

Does anyone have an explanation ?

Please report any suspicious-looking characters ...

This pic is from a CCTV camera above my raised bed ...

5 Dec, 2011

Ohh... its not Chi Chi any more is it?

5 Dec, 2011

 

Hi Pam ...
Surely you are not blaming the newly-arrived
Tian Tian and Yang Guang ... ?

... aka Sweetie and Sunshine ...

5 Dec, 2011

 

Completely lost me too!! :)))

5 Dec, 2011

 

The bamboo in Lagos should be far enough away to be safe ... but who knows ????? ;o)

5 Dec, 2011

 

Made me laugh TT ...

5 Dec, 2011

 

lol Terra that's very good :-))

5 Dec, 2011

 

oh, Terra - maybe the Sunshine is to blame? There was an article in today's newspaper about panda arriving somewhere in UK -sorry, wasn't reading carefully as my breaks at work are so short.....

5 Dec, 2011

 

Oooh.. careful Kasy.. could be heading to Wales ;o)

Thanks Sheila and Surreylad ... keep a look out !!!

5 Dec, 2011

 

Now where have I seen that face before ! oh,yikes..it looks like me hundreds of years ago,when I couldn't be bothered to take my mascara off,after a good night out ! Lol...could have got on the ears as well,by the look of it !
Good one,Terra..:o))

5 Dec, 2011

 

Very topical.

5 Dec, 2011

 

Oh bless........They have heard about you TT Escaped already and gone to ground with the hounds ha ha ha Lol............

5 Dec, 2011

 

Sounds like Pandemonium out there to me.

5 Dec, 2011

 

Love it......have security guards looking after our bamboo lol

5 Dec, 2011

 

Guess wot???? They are now my next-door neighours!!!! Yes, just over the high wall next to my workplace!!! The TV crews were still around at 7pm last night! No wonder the poor Pandas had dark circles around their jet-lagged eyes, having to pand-ar to the paparazzi like that, after that flight!!!

Sorry, but this may well be me, caught in the act. Couldn't see a damned thing through that costume. Wanted to make them feel welcome but, in that "hir"suit, may have become a bit bamboozled, and strayed a bit too far south, Sorry! Now, for Pauls' garden.....

5 Dec, 2011

 

At least I won't get mistaken for this thief ;o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

That could be arranged,Hywel :o)...

6 Dec, 2011

 

lol :D Send that new hat quickly TT ! :o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

Ha Ha...hope Tt hasn't found a black and white one ! :o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

On no ! lol I hope not :D

6 Dec, 2011

 

nah..she wouldn't ...would she ?..:o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

Probably not. She's one of the nicest people I know :o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

Still lost in Lagos here...but the fog has cleared...a bit! lol!

6 Dec, 2011

 

Ditto,Hywel..:o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

Karen..you have fog ?I bet it's warm fog though..not like here..more like a tropical mist.?..that sounds better :o)
Freezing here..but no snow yet,like some places..not nice..

6 Dec, 2011

 

Thanks everyone for keeping alert ...

Hi David ..
Yes, I'm very aware you have new lodgers so close to your workplace ... but your repeated leaping over the high wall is just a ruse, isn't it ...
... a clever way to get in extra training for your specialised Wellie Olympics event ... the North Pole Vault ...

So, no, I won't be bamboozled by your panda suit ..

.. and don't try hiding behind my raised bed ... all you'll find there is a guilty-looking Hywel wearing a similar black and white costume ...

The CCTV cameras are watching .... ;o) x

6 Dec, 2011

 

LOL!

6 Dec, 2011

 

:D :D hahahaha. !!! lol !

6 Dec, 2011

 

So nice to have blogs like this to raise our spirits in winter times eh? :)

6 Dec, 2011

 

Yes i agree with you Pixi25 I just love them, they cheer us all up Hehe :)

6 Dec, 2011

 

Glad you both like this one ... :o) xxx

6 Dec, 2011

 

Ahhh, I get it now TT !! IT's takes a while for news to filter its way across the snowy Alps .....

6 Dec, 2011

 

Hi Terry.
Your British friends will be very impressed with your up-to-date knowledge of goings-on in the UK ;o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

lolol

6 Dec, 2011

 

They don't know I have my secret informants ... hehehe

6 Dec, 2011

 

Oh, hehehe ..
we had better be careful what we tell you ;o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

You can trust me - my lips will be sealed WHATEVER you tell me .... :o)

6 Dec, 2011

 

I'm worried that my pages keep coming up with ads..

"Show you care with a Lindt bear" ..LOL.

I don't want the pandas to get jealous ...

6 Dec, 2011

 

Holy Himalayas, Tt! Should have known that you'd suss me out pretty quickly. :-) Am sure that I just caught a gimpse of Hywel in that costume, in the passing. Must admit to having been a bit bamboozled, myself, at first glance! Hope those cameras shoot first, and ask the questions later. Hope that he wasn't whisked away in one of those Panda cars. The poor man's already been through enough! :-(

Hadn't thought about entering the North Pole Vault event.....had been thinking of applying for Dancing on Ice, performing a Pandango?

6 Dec, 2011

 

lol David! :)

7 Dec, 2011
