A Squirrel Doing Aerobics And A Blackbird Reposing,
Look who I met on my walk yesterday... Trying to get photos of squirrels isn't that easy as they are so quick of foot. My effort got rewarded as this is a classic shot, almost reminicent of the early 80's and Jane Fonda's aerobics craze. No squirrel there, ...

Who'd have thought... As cats go, she is right there at the higher end of the ' keeping herself clean ' scale and to her mind she's never clean enough... As for Bob and I, she adores us and even more so when we are busy doing one of the many tasks needed to...

Under Pressure.
All in a day's work... Most cars do have a touch of Ford about them. Henry Ford and his famous " Any color, as long as it's black " slightly adjusted in hue. At the moment all cars seem grey. Sooty grey, abetted by the prolific smoke stacks rising from chim...

Attending A Village Funeral.
A well attended funeral. Funerals and the cause of them, dying, are par for the course and yesterday was a nice send off for a lovely village character and gentleman. As the saying goes, he slipped quietly into the night. As is usual in the days following a...

Back To Basics.
A most important job indeed. This week the sun and warm(er) weather have felt they needed to come and say hello to us. Glorious and stunning, the way everything takes on a different slant once the sun infuses a black and grey landscape with colour. Apart fr...
