2,000 not out

This is the 2,000th post on Gruts. To celebrate, here is a video of my dad's talented cocker spaniel, Molly, doing her Howlin' Wolf impersonation.

(If you listen very carefully, Molly says ‘Thank you’ at the end.)

Richard Carter

A fat, bearded chap with a Charles Darwin fixation.


  1. Fine thou' that is, we should take post-2K to demand the picture of Richard as an Oompa Loompa!

    Accept no substitutes!

    (Oh and merry "mid-winter festival", or whatever your preferred reason to celebrate may be).

  2. Spooky!! Honest truth: I was going to use the scan of the Oompa Loompa photo that I was sure I had, but 20 minutes searching yesterday failed to retrieve it. I'll have to ask my Dad if he still has the original, or whether it's with my sister.

  3. I feel downhearted, baby
    blues fallin' down like rain
    I feel downhearted, baby
    blues fallin' down like rain
    'cos my three legged blind dog done left me
    & my wife got run over by a train
