Kazzie (front) and Katie on our couch.
We thought that we'd bought our furniture so we could use it. Apparently, we were mistaken.

ertrum, I've always found it amazing how much room a tiny little cat can take up on an enormous couch or bed.

This weekend Torbay hosted its annual air show for the third year in succession. This aircraft was the highlight of the entire weekend for me; this is the world's only airworthy example of the Bristol Blenheim Mk.1 (L6739) which performed admirably. On its introduction into RAF service during 1937, the Blenheim was one of the fastest light bombers in the world, out-performing virtually any fighter in the world at the time.

This fact didn't go un-noticed yesterday afternoon when a friend of mine at the show found it difficult to believe that the aircraft approaching us at such a high speed was the eighty year old machine in this picture!

Google thinks this is a thistle. I think it's a salsify, but I'm not sure.

Doesn't look very thistle-like to me either.

Saturday afternoon was very hot here in Devon... But these wing-walkers must've been freezing!

This variegated fritillary caterpillar was contentedly munching a leaf in our garden.

On the 74th anniversary of D-Day, I thought I'd post this image of two of the most famous aircraft of the war years, the British Avro Lancaster heavy bomber and the US Douglas DC-3 or C-47 'Dakota' seen here wearing the black and white invasion recognition stripes.

The C-47 was a common sight in the skies around this part of the south-west of England in 1944 as many of the US paratroops that took part in the invasion left for Normandy from the US base at Upottery just a short distance from Exeter.

Sat not too far from me during this display was a group of British Bomber Command veterans and their wives/widows. Needless to say that there were a few tears shed as the Lancaster with it's four RR Merlin engines powered overhead.

I've just noticed that the sensor in my camera needs a bit of a clean as well!

Another beautiful sunny day on the English Riviera...

The Mackerel are around in their thousands at the moment.

The church of Saint Anne in Montpellier, France. Taken either in 1979 or 1980, while I was a student there.

Another highly prized sign for collectors, I randomly came across my first two in the New Forest yesterday. They usually had a warning triangle above them but these were on wooden posts where the brackets wouldn't fit.
