Oops, sorry 'bout that, copago!

I happened to get the last pack on the shelf in that supermarket, so I guess I'll be waiting a while to restock! Better make the pack I have last a while, eh?

I don't think I'd be happy about slipping my feet into your "spare" boots until they've been thoroughly cleaned out either!

The Little Insurgent - a memorial for all the children who fought and died during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Since all the men were away fighting the war, the Uprising was fought mainly by the women and children left behind.

Our village has a community garden. The local school use it at break times, friends meet there for a sit and a chat, that sort of thing. It's a well used and very popular facility. However, in the last few days we seem to have, courtesy of our local travelling community, gained a horse!

Copago: you should blow up that photo of the "mud" and hang it with a suitable frame (or not, since it doesn't seem to really need one)

Hay hay hay, what do we have on the rise of a paddock at this farm just south of the Otipua Wetlands and southern border of Timaru?

Blue cheese is even tastier which is why blue moons aren't seen a lot - quite often they're eaten before they show up. wink

Sigismund's Column in Castle Square, Warsaw. It was erected in honour of King Sigismund III Vasa, who moved the Polish capital from Krakow to Warsaw.

lol Flopsy and Howie. Again, Martin you never cease to amaze (and amuse!).

Zorba: another great photo (and thanks for the extra info). It's truly a wonder that many of the things you have taken pictures of are still standing today, given the history/events/wars etc.

Thanks Jake, I aim to please. laugh

There has been a bit of a boat theme this month so this photo of a some of the ferries which
serve Bristol docks will fit in well.

Love the boat in the middle, Martin. Jake, most of the buildings in Warsaw and other cities of Poland were reconstructed after WWII.



Part of the Barbican (fortified outpost) in Warsaw. Since we happened to be there during the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, there was an exhibition of photos from that period on the walls.

Your photos are always so interesting, Zorba. the Little Insurgent in particular was very touching.

And Howie your farm one is interesting too! Love to see how different places work.

Love it, Howie. Is there a plaque on it? Do you have a photo of that?

Photos to order! hey, that could be a fun new thread? "I want to see a photo of an animal in a strange place" someone posts a photo of an animal in a strange place and then they request a photo?


Anyway, just an idea .. here's my photo for today. I have probably posted a very similar one before I think but this was from Saturday which was perfect day to get the kayak out.

Yes there is a plaque but no I do not have a photo of it....next time I am up there.

However I believe it says - This monument was erected by the runholders of the Mackenzie County and those who also appreciate the value of the collie dog, without the help of which, the grazing of this mountain county would be impossible. Unveiled on March 7th, 1968 by Sir Arthur C.B. Porritt, Bt. C.C.M.C., K.C.V.C.. C.B.E., Governor General of New Zealand. "Beannachdan Air na Cu Caorach."

"Beannachdan Air na Cu Caorach." is Gaelic meaning "Blessings on the Sheep Dog"

Sounds like a fun idea to try out, Copago.

Built in the 17th century, the building in the center was once the narrowest house in Poland. At that time, property taxes were based on the width of the street facing facade and the number of windows on that side, which is why the owner built it this way. It's a lot wider and looks like a regular house when seen from the rear side.

I'd rather just try out Copago's kayak (even though I'm not partial to blue). Tradsies?

I am not sure if I have posted any Dunedin photos before. If you remember this view of Dunedin, Otago harbour and the Pacific Ocean then please let me know. If not I shall post more in the future.

Chip's sleeping habits remind me of my dad, Copago. smile I've even caught him sleeping while standing in a Mumbai local train. If you've ever had a chance to see one of those, you'd know what an achievement it is.
