    Due to my son moving back in with us during lockdown because he had to work from home, I didn't have the use of this computer, but he's away back home, so I'm back to normal, as far as this computer is concerned.
    I got this shot a few weeks ago in my back garden. moth.jpg It's a Brimstone Moth

    [​IMG]This MONSTER was on the wall of my house about a month ago. It's a Swallow-Tailed Moth. It was some size.

    Don’t know where to post this, it involves the cats so in here it goes.......

    As a rule I really don’t break wind, I talk so much it all escapes out my mouth, anyway......

    It’s been a long day, I left the office 12 hours after arriving there this morning, I ate a vegetable curry for lunch. Home for 9 and scoffed down some vegetable soup and a few packets of crisps.

    Thirty minutes ago - she was out the room - I had a gaseous eruption the equivalent of Old Faithful in Yellowstone and the aftermath was an atomic sulphuric plume and a foul stench akin to every combined stink bomb ever sold from Tam Shephards!

    Because of my many years of having a dormant bottom I escaped blame instantly, however (here is the animal/wildlife bit) she thinks it was one of the cats and she’s phoning the vets in the morning!

    There is a tiny part of me feeling guilty about this, but a large part that fiercely defends the hard fought reputation of my bottom and it’s inactivity.

    Should I confess?

    Besides it’ll cost a small fortune at the vets to discover it wasn’t them!

    Absolutely terrified Susan. Caroline took the photos and sent them to me. I wouldn't go near them. The one on the wall was that big I said to Caroline, " Be careful that thing doesn't try to steal your shoes". It was massive.
    That's the first time I've ever been in Victoria Park Susan. Stunningly beautiful park.

    I wouldn't confess Blackfish. You don't want you're well-earned reputation as a non wind breaker damaged.

    Haven't a clue Scotia, the meeting was behind closed doors so i took some of the pictures from the roadside beside the track and then talked the security man into letting me stand just inside of a pedestrian gate half way round the course.

    There is a headline in the Daily record ,,, English dad is bitten alive by 500 midgies, he is still alive , does that count as wild live ,, or just pesky insects.

    One good thing about the lockdown has been the visitors every morning for chicken and nuts 83D1626E-B01F-4E58-9661-E09FEB7DDF7F.jpeg
