Oh Ratty! Excitement is building ahead of CADS own Olympic Opening Ceremony otherwise known as Wind in the Willows, though as Mole says it isn't so much the wind we fear as thunder, lightening and torrential rain.
Life for actors and animals isn't much fun in the wet - poop-poop! But we are brave and hoping for sun. The cast is 36 (and rising), props and costumes will fill several cars and include a locomotive made of cardboard. The director thus far is fairly blasť about it all: it's just an expanded summer barbecue, that's all - just as the Olympics was just out National Sports Day - extended perhaps and with a few friends. Some of the medal winners seem only a few years out of primary school. We have music, costume, face-painting, sound effects, a barge, locomotive, ride-on mower, a horse, a caravan, a fox in a fur coat and weasels like you've never seen them. So far we've no geese nor sheep but in their place we have a rabble of small folk some of whom even have lines. Wish us luck, or come along if you prefer. It's this Saturday afternoon, bring a picnic and you can join Ratty and Mole on the River Bank.

Love it! Last Sunday we saw a hole in our riverbank and wondered if it was Ratty but maybe he's off, over at yours'?
