Skype last night

We spent a couple of hours on Skype last night catching up with our son Liam, his wife, and baby Ryan who’s now 5 months old.
 
How time flies, takes you by surprise!
  
We still haven’t met little Ryan in person, because they´re in Germany. So this is the closest we get for now... Till later this year, when we´re going there to see them! 
 
Inquisitive…? (Bless)

An unofficial flypast

We were on our way back from the Dumpout Palace this afternoon, and as the sun shone down on the (occasionally) righteous. This Boeing 747 flew over us on it’s way across the Atlantic, the 4 vapour trails ID it…
 
So I took these stunning photos, if you find plane photos boring look away now…

Wow, notice how the plane itself almost appears translucent in comparison to the vapour trails…

Summery Scenes

The sun comes out and so does the fisherman…

Uh Oh, he saw me…
 
007
 
Droops Oops, I only bought these yesterday…

008
 
The flowers at the other side have faired better, but not by much. “Guaranteed 7 days” it said on the wrapper, typical Tesco…

Police helicopter in a rush…

002
 
Plus a low flying duck…
 
003
 
Fishing, flowers, helicopters and a duck, it’s a diverse mix if I say so myself.
 
Except for one thing – BLUE sky…

Boing, spring has sprung

But never mind, the sun is out, I’m sat in the lux con, the gongoozlers are a gongoozling, and Dave´s watching rugby... (Yawn).
 
See, I told you it was sunny, even the moon was in this photo when I took it, but it’s disappeared…

And this here cloud thinks it’s a tree…

Four boaters a bowling

Last night we went bowling with Mark and Liz – our good friends and fellow members of the “No Hopers” quiz team (proud). We had a great laugh, went for a meal later on, then back to the local yokel pub for last orders. Another night to go down in the history of silly archives…
 
Mark in action, he won both games…
