Hello, Mr Fox

by duncanr

foxI frequently see a fox on my early morning walks in the park with the dogs

my suspicions – based on the dogs’ frantic barking and running around when I open the door to the garden when I get up in the morning – that it hangs around my garden on occasions, was confirmed earlier this week when, on returning from . . .

Fair Drookit

rainForget royal sprogs, the real news is that is is raining in Brum this morning

Weeks of unbearable heat have been replaced by the long-promised thunderstorm

It started just after 5 am

I’m sure about the time because I had just started running my bath when I heard the boom of thunder and the heavy splats of rain falling on the roof

Walk in Park ends in Hospital

japanese archerA 33yr old man in Japan was out strolling in a park – minding his own business, enjoying the scenery and the fresh air – when it happened!

Fortunately, his injuries were minor and he was later released from hospital

A spokesperson for the Park said the man’s attacker was a novice at the club who was ‘learning the basics of archery

Hhmm, hitting a moving target from a distance is no easy matter. I think this guy has moved beyond the stage of learning the basics

Just saying !

‘Dead’ Tortoise found in Garden

by duncanr

When the strange tortoise they found in their garden showed little signs of life, the two women feared the worse. Thinking it might have been attacked by a cat or some other animal or was so weak with hunger it had no energy to move, the one tried to tempt it with morsels of lettuce and tomato while the other called the Knoxwood Wildlife Rescue Centre, near Wigton, Cumbria.

When the expensively-trained at the public expense ‘expert’ from the centre arrived, all those years of hard work and study paid of. She eyed up the situation and after a brief examination sadly informed the ladies there was nothing she could do to help – and while they had acted with the best of intentions, they were wasting their time trying to coax it to eat – pointing out that it was rare to find a tortoise with ‘Made in China‘ stamped on it’s tummy !
