A Hunting We Will Go...


...A hunting we will go!
Heigh ho the derry-o
A hunting we will go!
...We'll catch a fox
And put him in a box.
And then we'll let him go!

    2. That would depend on who the kidnapper is!

  2. Very considerate and sophisticated cats you have, letting the fox go.
    So their hunting is purely for sporting entertainment, then.ha1ha1

    1. Yes, but as fisherman,
      they are not catch-and-release.
      They are catch-and-feast. hahaha.

    2. And as aviators catching birds they are also catch and feast and spit out the feathers. lol
      I think Mike was a little harsh even though he might be right but the consolation is that so am I ha!ha!

    3. You know, they don't spit out the feathers! My Marmalade even eats the feet. ugh.

      Oh, Mike's just teasing....we go way back. :)

      Delete
    4. Eating the feet ughhh!
      Marmalade is much too non carnivorous a name for that cat. Call him Marmite.

      Delete
    5. Oh, I know! His name does not suit him! I named him that when he was a wee ginger kitty and I didn't even know his gender. Yes, Marmite would be more appropriate. He eats mice that way, too...completely whole. I prefer it that way, actually...no bits and pieces to clean up. ha.

    6. That's what I call a low maintenance cat . Doe he influence the others?
      Perhaps he might bag that fox one day and lay it at his mistresses feet - if there's anything left.

    7. Yes, anything is possible with this brood. ha.

    3. And will you be taking a gun or a box? haha.

      Delete
    4. That depends on if the fox is silver or red! (smiling) Oh, I jest! Teasing of course.

    5. Uh oh! You better duck..or run...or something!

    You still amaze me, dear Betsy. You can take a plain moment and turn it into something interesting and spectacular.
    Good job!

  7. My mom used to sing that song when I was little. When my own kids were small, we'd make up new verses.
    At the moment I can't think of a one! ha ha!

    1. I think we sang it at school in music class! I can't believe it popped in my head...I haven't heard it in ages! I had to look it up to makes sure I was spelling heigh ho and derry o correctly! ha.

    1. No birds in this hunt this time
      it's a fox that would taste sublime.
      Or didn't you sing this little song
      at school when you were young?

      Delete
    2. Nope, never sang that one
      They were actually after a fox under your sun

      Delete
    3. Not really, no
      that's just how the song goes.
