Adventure before dementia

St. Swithin's day

Sorry folks - but don't forget it is St Swithin's Day today ....

So, if it rains today we will have a wet summer ... but if it is dry - 40 days of sunshine ahead. As the poem goes :-

"St Swithin’s Day, if it does rain
Full forty days, it will remain
St Swithin’s Day, if it be fair
For forty days, t'will rain no more."

DJ - plaited!

You All Get To See Him Today

Yes - you will see DJ as much as I do, today.  

I started driving towards his home to be met by mist, that turned to fog, that thickened.  So half way there I phoned Toni and she said it was similar, so turned round and came home ... No riding today ... and just seeing a dappled grey on a foggy day is hard!!

So thought I would share a couple of pics I took last month, which show his new summer coat - and the fact that I do still plait him!!

Just Some Pictures

Just a small pic-scam ... 2 pictures of Bude.

One of which is Mum, Dad and Jiffy standing by the open (damaged) lock gates ... proving the lock opens into the Atlantic ocean.  The other picyure is just of Jiffy.  They were taken last month when Mum and dad came for Father's Day weekend

Thes 2 pictures are of the 2 different peacocks I saw when I went to Arlington Court in the beginning of June.  The pictures of the actual house are very dark, so haven't bothered with those - but these are of a white peacock and a traditional coloured one.

Nature is so beautiful - we have a marvellous Creator.
