More lovely pictures, liking the fountain Bernie, looks like water cascading over giant ice cubes :D

Patricia, York, one of my favourite places to visit, was sitting in the gardens of York Minster just a couple of weeks ago, so peaceful and tranquil :)
Did take a few pictures but couldn't move for tourists :roll:
All the photos have either myself or Jimmy surrounded by Japanese tourists :lol: so funny!

Shelagh - You've got that right, everywhere we went over the years we
have been surrounded by Japenese - must be a very wealthy country.
It was the same at "Ann Hathaway's Cottage" and even in France at
the Louvre Museum, we couldn't get near the "Mona Lisa" due to there being
so many congregated there. The only consolation was that they are rather
small in stature and we were able to take photos over their heads!!
Very disappointed at how small the Mona Lisa portrait is, in my mind all
these years, I always thought it would be much larger! :roll:

Thanks Bernie for your helpful hints. Will give it a try! :D

Hi Bernie, it let be great if you did take it up as a hobby, as all bowling clubs are looking for new members. I can highly recommend it and it really gets you hooked once you start. I play 4 days a week in 4 different leagues. I have played against Roy ( in the lilac shirt in your photo) on a few occasions.

Congratulations on your runner up spot.

Hi Bernie and Bill. Do you play crown green or lane bowls?
In Western Canada all we have is lane bowls.Extremes of weather and temperatures
would destroy a crown green in one season.Pouring rain at night then a very deep freeze
next day would cause ice ridges.At the moment my dear lady Sheila is the ladies individual
champion of the club here in the Cowichan Valley and along with her ladies doubles partner
has just had an 8 point end in tournament play so the medal award is on its way from Bowls Canada.
Next week she is marking for the Canadian National Championship being held ,this year, in Victoria but
as for me if I bent over to bowl I would fall flat on my face(maybe not I have a Jewish nose :) so I am a bowling widower
from April to late September.As long as I have the coffee set,the shopping done and the veggies ready I get away with most anything else :lol:

Hi Matt , it's crown green for me, I find lane bowling a bit boring.I do play in an indoor league in the winter but that is just to keep me occupied during the winter. My wife also considers herself to be a bowling widow,even though she bowls for a ladies team once a week.

Thanks Bernie, now able to see the beautiful gardens of cottage, whole village is like a time capsule, so splendid, many skills still in operation, such as the local Blacksmith, all so very quaint :D
Best of luck with the bowling Bernie, and to the other champs, Matts Sheila, and Bill :wink:

Not sure if I'm ready for enlarging process yet Bern, (very ambitious) but will follow instructions, lets see what happens :lol:

Just off to dentist, not the treatment I fear, just the cost :roll:

Congrats to YOU, Shelagh, enjoyed your photo posting
as Dorothy states "Nice to put a face to the postings!" :D

Congratulations are also in order for "Your Lady!" Matt

my Line Dancing for exercise which is going on four years now!
Also Best of luck to Bernie, Bill & Roy with their bowling!

Graham love the photo of the "Whistling Duck!" must have
been quite a treat to witness that. I had never heard of them.

:shock: dentist in India, looks to be tearing the head off patient :evil:
Bit like Baker in the fifties/sixties,
Many people lived the experience, as they attempted to stagger up Great Mersey St :cry:

Patricia, red open top buses used by tourists back and forth to Anfield, often see the bright buses in and around the city :D

Ducks and more ducks tucking into lunch, thanks Graham :D
