Baby Cody with Ampa... and time to move on.
« on: September 30, 2009, 03:54:55 PM »
Yikes! How time flies when you are avoiding your chores!

Baby Cody arrived with me (Ampa) in Hemel Hempstead almost a month ago. We spent a day or two at home, me arguing with a horrible client, while BC recovered from the journey from Yorkshire. Apparently it was a long flight and very difficult flying, since the cardboard box was very constrictive.

No sooner had he adjusted to his new environment than he was off again - whisked away, down the M4 to visit my extremely lovely girlfriend in South Wales. Here we stayed for a week of surprises to celebrate my 33rd birthday.

We went to see Tim Minchin, had a couple of nice meals out on the town, and experienced No Fit State Circus.

Later in the week we all went for a nice walk along the beach at St Donats, where I failed to find any dinosaur footprints, but Baby Cody did find some excellent nesting sites.

We even found time for a quick flying lesson.

Towards the end of our stay we went fruit picking. BC thought the Pyracantha's berries were the tastiest, and heartily recommended that they go with the apples into the crumble.

Back home in Hemel Cody has been assisting me with the manufacturing process for the next batch of Monkey Dash. Admittedly the majority of the help has been in the form of verbal encouragement, and impractical suggestions!

Finally we went to Paradise Wildlife Park, where I took a day course in airbrush painting with reigning World Bodyart Champion Alex Hansen while Cody made friends with the meercats.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the time Cody's spent with me, but can tell that he is getting itchy feet (wings?) and is ready to move on... so who shall he visit next?

Glad to see the little chap is still enjoying the UK and keeping up his flying lessons.

Anyone else in the UK like a visit before he leaves for distant shores?

It's always enjoyable to see the adventures of Baby Cody!

... while Cody made friends with the meercats.

Is that anything like a Srikat?

Has he gone - if so where is he now?

I presume because of the deafening silence from UK members no one else wants a visit.

Members from other countries where should he visit next?

Would it be possible to get a Cody's Adventures 'pin map' put up somewhere? :)

Second the map idea.   :Thmbsup:

I was getting a bit worried and even asking about Cody in the Donationcoder IRC channel. Good to see he is fine and having a great time!

I'd like to see the map posted somewhere too - I don't mind keeping it up to date if hosts let me know their location.

The problem is where has he got too? Since Ampa posted nearly three weeks ago the little chap has gone very quiet ... and so has Ampa.

Maybe BC flew off with Ampa's girlfriend (always was a possibility) and Ampa has given chase!

I think Baby Cody is just trying to decide who to visit next.

OK I will have a go at that if people let me know where he is/has been.
