Remember Remember...

...the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot!
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
I always like to post on Bonfire Night to remind everyone that here in the UK it is a special night when all the humans set off loads of noisy fireworks to remind themselves how Guy Fawkes failed to blow up the Houses of Parliament about 400 years ago.

It is a good night for fireworks tonight, dry and cold. My humans didn't go out to a fireworks display, they watched the big display at the Town Hall from our upstairs windows, we have a good view from there.

There are lots of bangs going off all over London. Some kitties get very scared by all the fireworks banging but I am not too bothered, I have been asleep most of the evening while all the bangs were going off. Zzzzzzz.....

We can't see the fireworks very well from here, but we can here them. If we stand in the window and look out over the river, we can see them in the distance. The Beans have just come back from a BBQ and didn't even bring us anything.
This was an interesting piece of history that we didn't know about at our place. Always good to focus on the past and have a firework celebration to remember long ago.
You are so brave to not be afraid of those scary fire works.

China Cat & I liked your poem for Bonfire Night! We're glad that the fireworks didn't bother you but I would definitely be hiding under the bed!!!

Looks like fun. Noisy, but fun.
I am not scared either. I just snoozed away and wondered what all the fuss was about. But there are a lot of woofies and kitties that are afraid.. Hugs GJ x

Dear Eric,

Thank you for visiting and leaving such kind words about Bathsheba.

I just scrolled down on your blog and saw that I missed your birthday. Happy Birthday a few weeks late.

Keep enjoying the last of the flowers. We still have some things in bloom too, and mommie says that we have not had a severe freeze yet.

I hope to grow up to be a beautiful ginger boy like you!
