Today they are mostly photos of a place about 3/4 mile from where I live.

However the first photo is re-taken for those who are not following photo_scavenger as I have posted the item there.  In England (for those who don't know) we have the King/Queen's name on a post box.  Obviously there are loads of E II R for our present queen ... however this one is more unusual -

Anyway, letters posted we walked on to St Loye's Chapel.   It was built in the 1380's to serve a local rural mansion and is dedicated to the patron saint of blacksmiths and goldsmiths.  After 400 years it fell into diuse and disrepaire, and spent many years as a stable.  St Loye's emblem is actually a horseshoe.  As you can see it wouldn't give much shelter now, but I love the way it has been left in the middle of this housing estate.

And, of course our intrepid explorer was there to check things out.

In the afternoon I took Jiffy for his regular haircut ... so he looks nice and tidy again.  Here he is, in the car ready to go home for dinner

Jiffy is like, "Are you taking pictures of me having a pee again? - Perv."

LOL - trouble with Jiffy is that he spends a lot of time weeing, so hard not to catch him "being busy"!!!

It's funny how something so ordinary is something we take for granted ... so nice to re-look at the pillar boxes.

Jiffy is a darling

Jiffy is uber adorable! I want to cuddle him... but it would make my Ruger far too jealous.

Well if you cuddle Jiffy, then I get to cuddle up to Ruger *g*

I am pleased they haven't demolished it - and what a great place it would be to play as a child!

I walk past this often, but never spotted anyone playng there - I suppose that nowadays it's new phones and computer games that most kids prefer, sadly.
