Nice to be viewing a storm from the comfort of an armchair, Keith, those waters look mighty choppy :)

Condolences Patricia, the little fella obviously had good taste choosing your lovely garden to spend his days.
On another sad note our little pigeon Steve has gone missing. After having a lovely new home built for him to spend the winter, he went off on one of his jaunts and never returned. We did everything to try and find out what has become of him but to no avail. Being close to a nature reserve he may have been prey to a hawk. He was so well known round about, had he been attacked by a local moggy, we think someone would have known. He gave us a great deal of pleasure, and is certainly missed. I prefer to think he found a partner and is happy nesting somewhere.

Sorry to hear about Charlie Patricia, :( at least he had a lovely long life!

Sorry to hear about Charlie Patricia. It was that news that made me wonder how Steve was getting on..... Miv's updated us before I had to ask. Ta for that Miv and like Loretta, I hope he brings his missus back to visit. You must feel (literally) like an empty nester :(

Thanks Patricia,
Her identical sister Prince of Wales has just arrived in Pompey from the shipyard in Scotland.
Whether we will ever see both of them in service as we barely have enough escorts for one carrier.

While staying at Chincoteague for Thanksgiving we visited several Gift Shops
in the Village and I fell in love with this photo taken at sunrise. Before the
annual Pony Swim the Northern Pony Herd is led down the beach to the
Southern pen and then they will swim over to Chincoteague.

It is quite chilly here 50 Degrees/10°Celius and on looking out of
the patio door saw this scenario - talk about: "How to
relax and enjoy what sun you can get!!!"

Shelagh - Thanks so much for your lovely comment.
You know, I have this feeling that if people on the Forum are not going to
put "Fingers to Keyboard" rather than the old saying "Pen to Paper!! :D
I'm afraid this Forum will be "Blowing into the Wind!" and that makes
me sad. :(

Agreed Patricia.

Not very often that this happens. With the family up from Cornwall for half term, we all got together yesterday. It was a tough day cooking for 15 but it was great seeing all the grandchildren together, a rare sight indeed.
