Hopefully our bomb disposal chaps will be able to blow up a couple of anti tank mines found on a local beach last week. Amazing that they are still being found.

Police activity in our village.
Several police vehicles including the dog car, and now the helicopter.

I wonder what's a-going-on?

That's almost funny, considering what happened to me a few years ago . . .

Probably be a warning to members of the public not to approach someone.

Always makes me laugh, that one.

Mr D, if you use teabags to make tea take a used, warm one and apply it to the affected eye. Leave it there for a minute or two so that the warmth and tannic acid can work. You may find a trip to the doctor is avoided or at least delayed.
G-CPTN - sorry

No wurries, DX . . .

One wonders whether the Police will be found wanting over releasing the suspect for the murder of Betty Yates to go on and murder the vicar?

Just had the Police at the door - yes, really, at a quarter to one . . .

Seems that there's a 'misper' - an elderly lady from the sheltered housing at the top of the hill.
"Had I seen her?"
"Did I know or recognise her?"
(both negative)

That explains the sequence of events from 8pm through 9pm to 10pm escalating from a single car to the helicopter.

We are close to the river, and the river is two to three feet above normal, so anyone falling in might struggle . . . (a real flood is fifteen feet above normal, but the riverside walk gets submerged with four feet up to eight feet above normal).

I don't think the path would be submerged at current levels.

Good whatever (nightish, I'd say, just woke up - well, somehow fell asleep at a weird hour, too)!

No activities here, no choppers either. No-one missing, therefore?

Been a mixed week - some snow and ice - a thaw to clear the freezing mush - anf then damned cold again tonight - but it doesn't half make for good photting opportunities

KWVR last weekend - the first LNWR double header since 1958



A bit of "over the wall" fotting like we did when were evicted from the loco sheds

The LNWR pair at Haworth last Sunday night



Chucking out the fire - it came in - work done - blowing its head off, and then they took two full barrowloads of fire out of it!



Then tonight we had a shoot in Bury with Paul's Leyland and the Beet family's Peckett, May - Look Richard and Nigel pretending to work!



Just a nice cameo



And to finish - a sillhouette shot



As usual my full albums are on Pictures by 45596 - Photobucket

Buggritt! I take a day off sick and when I get out of me sick bed you've all abandoned ship and cast me adrift on me own. Its not as if we had an Italian skipper who doesn't know how many SOBs he has on the imprest.

Lots of reading-in to do now.

Morning peeps, eye just as bad this morning,looks like one shall have to phone for a doctors appointment,at one time one just walked into the surgery and took one's place in the queue, now since they have been computerised and efficiencized and have hundreds of staff apparently one sometimes has to wait up to ten days for a doctors appointment.

Dull and overcast here
Great photographing Mr Frank the second one is a prize winner very atmospheric,twould grace any gallery wall.

That description could replace the 'bucketful of sun' euphemism!
