Hot cones

I'm writing about pine cones. They surely burn beautifully.

On the wharf

My youngest grandson and I walked the length of the wharf to look at the fishing boats. There were some very expensive vessels moored there along with some rust-buckets. We enjoyed seeing them all.

The wharf-walk was followed later in the day by a pretty impressive sunset.

This latest shard of china has a part-message and an intriguing image fragment. I'm looking for the full version now...

Here it is: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Seems very old, this piece of cup, from the 1800's, I think.

End of day

Fight day

Simon's a martial artist and turning 40. To celebrate, he's arranged to fight 40 bouts today, with fighters from all sorts of disciplines. I took my camera to record the event.

It was a great spectacle but no fight made for better watching than the one between Simon and his wife, Julia :-)

Right here, in my lounge!

Hoot! Moot! Parley! Parliament.

Warm, cosy stuff

When the weather outside's frightful, I like to look at soothing things indoors.


The grow tunnel is coming along very well, thanks and will be covered by its plastic skin soon.
