I was going to have another rant but one a month is enough for you to tolerate and for me to compose. I did write one last night....I usually sketch a rant then read it after a nights sleep. It saves my embarrassment......Limits it anyway.
The rant was inspired by the Olympics or more precisely the hijacking of sportspersons efforts by three individuals.
The competitors who have trained, risked family and quality pub time should not have their photo calls invaded by Dithery Dave, Boris the Bloater and the Duchess of Cambridge all appearing in British team kit. I wouldn't object to the latter strutting her stuff in licra! That's just me being a little bit pervy. They are starting to look like football supporters.............Acting like them as well.....ENOUGH! Enough from me and I'm vainly in hope, from them.
Went for a wander yesterday and drew a blank with pictures, I did say in the last post that snails can be awkward to identify........I find most flora and fauna a challenge to pop a tag on. This is a much brighter and posher White lipped snail.................................
Today is a shopping day. I love shopping for food and got a lift into town. Toured Sainsbury's trawling for bargains but there were non to be had......I'll prepare what I got for the weekend this afternoon and post the words and music tomorrow.
This photo was supposed to be all arty farty all the orange bits lining up right to left diagonally. I hopped this way and I hopped the other way but no joy....I'll be Blowed! I'll maybe stretch it in PS. No one would know. Just like no one would believe this is straight out of camera. It could have looked good...........I'll be Blowed! It isn't a binner seen large...Is it?
I caught the bus home and had a walk with the dogs........not a good walk, the flora is massive...it rained around here for months then summer came and every plant bolted. I like jungle. It has it's downside though, the insects are both prevalent and as big as sheep.
I was bitten on my ear by a cleg. I must have lost any sense I had......I slapped it, hit my ear and almost deafened myself. I was getting worried. I was deaf, I had lost a sense, put a finger in the unafflicted ear and couldn't hear a sound.....a bit of rustling maybe. The bloody cleg was blocking up my ear....On my return to the van it took me five minutes with a cocktail stick to extricate the damn thing. I do my best not to overburden our Elf Service. I should have done, an ugly man is now further disfigured by a superating lump on his ear but at least I can 'ear. Blow me Down!....The cleg...I'm sorry, a sad end for her...she is now an ex cleg and buried in the chemical toilet....Go Aaaagh...Poor mite.
What is this please? It's big but the all plants seem to have enjoyed the rain followed by sun. Were it popped in a cube then a metre cube would just about do the job, for the whole plant.
I'll leave you with this.....I took a similar image a couple of years ago but it is a fine spot.
I am thinking of investigating Wordsmith.........I can't get Live Writer to work and I detest the time it takes for inferior presentation using Blogger. Blow the Content, contenstrate on prestitation!
Have a Good weekend.
