Fantastic shot of Kanga and Roo! Baby looks almost ready to take off on his own, eh?

This festive fellow decorated the lobby of the theatre when I went to the movies yesterday afternoon. He's about three feet tall, not sure what he's made of, and can't decide if he's meant to be Santa or not...

Well we have had some fowl, I can't top Kanga and Roo, so how about a fish? This strange little swimmer is a Longhorn Cattle Fish. I found it curious and so homely it was cute.

I got two "birthday badges" too - one which says "Birthday Girl" and one which says "Super Aunty". It's great that a certain Prince thinks so highly of me!

aww ... sweet kangaroo shot.
Belated happy birthday wishes jane.
Lovely gifts from the heart.



I have heard when these are small, and not open, they can be quite tasty.
These were in a lawn across the street ...

A highland cow. One of a pair put to graze in a field near us. A notice says they'll be there for 2 -3 months, or until they have eaten all the grass

Aw Telly what a joy to have cattle around you.
I went for dinner to the posh apartment complex of a friend. Here is the pool, not yet drained for winter as it has been so warm up to now.

Happy birthday for yesterday Jane.

Here is where the underground trains travel under the overground ones in Swiss Cottage (named after a local pub as some areas are). The tunnels on the left are where they come from Finchley Road station heading south to London.

What a great swan - we have them here but I'm sure they don't have the red beaks.

Today we did some goat work. They are feral goats but we have an old pet one in the paddock also caled Conolly. He was about two years old when he started to jump on vehicles so he had to be put somewhere safe. Still after ten years in the paddock he is as quiet as a lamb and as soon as he's in the yards will come up for a pat and we always have a few treats for him.

what a great set of horns Conolly has, the larger they are, are they older animals?
the black swans with the red beaks i believe they called them 'Australian swans' but i am not sure ...

Oo, I'm jealous, Jane! What a beautiful copy. I had to laugh at your post satguru, that the train lines are named after a pub that is close to them!

Who can resist a red London bus? The 31 heads south from Swiss Cottage.

The area and station are named after the pub, the lines are just heading there- maybe my grammar was not as perfect as it should have been
There is a station in Norfolk called Berney Arms, and it's actually the only way to get to the Berney Arms pub as there's no road to it. There are also many areas and bus stops named after pubs and businesses that last long after they have closed. Nag's Head in Holloway is a regular destination and signpost, and near me there's a Henlys Corner (named after a garage) and Staples Corner named after a factory, both long demolished. Now the areas are given the name as well as the junctions that the names first applied to. The oddest thing was when Staples (a bed factory) was demolished who should build there but an office firm called- Staples. It was years later before I discovered it was a coincidence and they had branches worldwide as I assumed they just kept the old name that was there before. Truth is stranger than fiction.

The marquee on the 31 - Camden Town - reminded me of the lyrics of the song by the same name, by Suggs. About tourists,etc. (not very flattering to Americans if i remember.) I like your "Nutcracker" fella Sp. Liz - really 'christmassy'. Great herd of turtles bhs



It was the texture and contrast of light/dark here of the scallop shell on the barnacled smooth stones that caught my eye when i saw it this summer. It was one of those "squat down with your knees" - "oh god i can't get up again", - 'ok, look cool,look cool'- kind of photos lol.

I didn't paint the door for the occasion -- it's always red (much to the chagrin of my neighbors...)

I've been in Warsaw most of this week, so haven't posted since last Monday.
This fine building is the famous, or maybe 'infamous' Palace of Culture



I've cropped out most of the colourful tram at the bottom of the image, as there were a lot of people visible through its windows

That's a bit flash, Sats. Is it still the one house or has it been subdivided into units?

Here is a falcon gliding about.
