Long distance cricket!


Long distance cricket!

I found little Hoppity on the wing mirror of my car after work yesterday, I drove 9 miles home, still there! off to the gym, still there! went for a swim and still Hoppity was on the wing mirror; went to the Garden Centre and off he hopped!!!

I hope he took plenty of money with him....you know what it's like when you go there :)

Clever chap, but how did he know you were going to the garden centre? ; )

dont think he has many pockets to keep his wallet in scottish :-(

perhaps he read my sat nav stevie [havent got one really] or maybe he didnt fancy the gym so he just kept hitching a ride till he came to somewhere he liked the look of?

smart one, lol
today I was watering plants at work and suddenly a butterfly landed on the lance. Wanted to take a photo with my mobile camera, but just scare it off:(

6 Sep, 2012

 

:-) which butterfly?

a lance?

I reckon he jumped on last time you were a the GC, Sticki, had a good look round your car and enjoyed his ride in the big wide world, decided he liked it better back home....:))

hmmm - don't know which one.... would have to search somewhere...
a hose lance ;-)

maybe he did janey ~ mind you i have driven from worcestershire to suffolk and back since i last went to the GC so he would have to be quite tenacious to hold on that long!!!

ah, sorry kasy, i didnt know the technical term!

6 Sep, 2012

 

oh, no worries Sticki - wasn't sure if I spelled it right either. so added the 'hose' word, lol.

6 Sep, 2012

 

must have been sunny then if you were using the hose?

6 Sep, 2012

 

Lance, made me think of Lightsaber, Kasys jedi garden centre skills ; )

yes Sticki - finaly we have a bit of summer here in Wales. Nice, sunny and warm - and bit windy at the same time. Plants in pots are drying out very quickly.

6 Sep, 2012

 

haha - thank you Stevie - now having two part time jobs I need all kind of support I can get, lol

7 Sep, 2012

Obviously that is why he did not hop off before, not in to the gym, and they are not know to be great swimmers......but a GC well that's different!! it has flowers etc

9 Sep, 2012

 

Perhaps he wanted a change of scenery or was visiting a girlfriend at the GC.....LOL.

i think you are right DD!

oh, maybe linda??!

ST the grasshopper go-between : )

10 Sep, 2012

10 Sep, 2012

 

The secret journey of the grasshopper?! Perhaps he could do a blog stevie?

Must have fran but then I haven't got one at all!

10 Sep, 2012

 

lol better that way! brains don't break down as often as new tech

10 Sep, 2012

 

i think mine might!!

10 Sep, 2012

 

Are you sure this isn't a cricket Sticki?

11 Sep, 2012

 

Oh, I don't know Linda? sorry I'm not sure I know the difference! Will have to look it up.

11 Sep, 2012

 

We used to have one that kept on coming indoors and sitting in the grate singing.

11 Sep, 2012

 

They say crickets sing in the hearth don't they?

11 Sep, 2012

 

You are right Linda, crickets have the long antennae and grasshoppers the short ones! Thank you!
