STRETCHING A POINT (12/05/11)

Continuous rain today, so far anyway. Todays post has a bird theme. After yesterdays Tomfoolery and your comments I thought I’d better get my sensible head on.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA     This hen and what remains of her brood are safe in a corner of the Tan Hill Inn. The chicks hatched about a week ago but unfortunately some got blown away. These two were caught bowling down the road in the wind..poor mites.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  They should be fine now.

A bird of a different feather……………………………………

_5124148_49_50_51_52_tonemapped_edited-1Sorry about that. At least it kept me out of Photoshop.

I’ll get out later if it stops raining and see what I can find.

Have a good day.

  2. I like the car's flaws, Adrian. They show that this car is out in public, not in a museum--and that's pretty amazing.

  3. Hilary, they will be okay now......barring some drunk standing on them. Nothing like baby anything for warming the heart.

  4. JoLynne, It was built around 1932..Not only does the owner use it he takes it out in the rain. They are better used. An expensive hobby though.

  7. I bet it's cold and wet where you are - out in the sticks near Tan Hill.

    I assume there has been Blogger problems recently - being out of the country for 4 weeks it's something I've missed.

  9. Petrus, on and off since Wednesday. No Blogger at all yesterday for twenty hours.

    Horst, It's a windy place up here........I have no idea how many were lost but three or four I would imagine.

  10. I'm impressed with the Riley. The Gamecock is not one I've come across before.

  11. Graham, I looked it up on the internet and it looks like one........though it wasn't a Riley I knew either.
