Meet Mr. Hoops
A quick explanation to give some background to Mr. Hoops.
Mr. Hoops as his name suggests is a Hoopoe, he lived in my house in Tuscany before I did with his wife Mrs. Hoops, they have had a family here and well, Mr. Hoops is extremely territorial and as such is not pleased that his enormous three-bedroom nest is now inhabited by a random English woman with three dogs and what is worse an overly inquisitive Siamese cat called Pye.
Well, every morning at about five AM Mr. Hoops will go around all the bedroom windows tapping on the glass, waking up the inhabitants of said rooms, human, canine, or feline!
The human element always greets him with a ‘Hi Hoops’ – and that is what I have for my new creative business ‘Ashburn Creative Adventures’ HIGH HOPES.
