It’s certainly been a weird few days chez Castle Greysquirrel for dreams ….. what with Darrell’s nightmare of a few days ago …. and the girls at school putting on “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” for the end of term………… however, last night was appeared to be Nigel’s turn, and to be perfectly frank and honest with you, his “dream” was so weird and far fetched that to both Darrell and I discounted it immediately, putting it down to Nigel’s excessive cheese and Vimto consumption before bed.
Nigel told us, with eyes like saucers, that sometime between 2.00 and 3.00am he was woken by what he thought was the very loud mooing of cows (or some such other large creature) He said that he lay in bed for ages thinking “Nooooooooooooo, it can’t be!”, until, in the end he felt compelled to get out of bed and look out of the window ….. to see an absence of cows (or some other such large creatures ) ….. only a stationary mini with its back lights flashing ….. which then drove off quite quickly. Nigel said that he then got back into bed, but could still hearing said loud mooings for a little while longer …… and then still mystified he returned to his slumbers.
When Nigel woke next morning, his “dream” had all but faded from his mind …. until he drew back the curtains ….. and saw what he thought looked like squished poo on the road and poo splatterings on the pavement!!!!
There was also a discernable animalistic whiff in the air when he and I went outside to investigate further, which indeed confirmed that it was poo of a large creature type nature!
Now, we have never really thought ours was the sort of village that anyone would feel the need to herd cows through, especially in the middle of the night, which turned our rather vivid imaginations to wildly robust and fanciful ideas of cattle rustlers using a mini to herd said animals up our road and past the Castle ……….
Concerned, that Nigel may have been an innocent witness to nefarious bovine goings on, we decided that perhaps we ought leave a message for our village policeman …… we await his reply …… I just hope they don’t think that it was some sort of prank call, because we have the forensic evidence to prove otherwise!
