I mean we've had terrible weather all of May so I'm glad if it's gone early but if I've lost a day somewhere that's bad I don't have that many left.

It is still May in many places but it getting on for rise and shine time on the 1st of June in Australia and other parts of the world.

It is a bit of a job to know what time the change of thread should be done. I could have left it a few more hours I suppose. Perhaps next time. Maybe view the start of a new thread as a 'more or less' changeover time rather than a definite one.

Not being critical Telly just just trying to be humorous and failing miserably as usual.


You do a great job and my thanks for all your hard work.

Here's my entry for the start then, a Wallaby. He's looking at me like I better not start anything.

I knew you didn't really mind Argus I changed the thread at 7:15 PM UK time. I thought Copago might be up early and wonder why it hadn't been done

Loc: Kingsbury London UK           
After looking up his old patch, Kingsbury, someone who left the house 4 doors away from me in 1955 and then left the country found all my sites and pictures, and recognised his old road in my photos. Then I got an email he is coming back for the first time in 40 years and got a call today he's here. He arrived this evening and thanks to the internet I've now met someone who lived here before I was born. He turned out to be an accomplished psychic and we also had a lot of other things in common. My parents moved almost over the road from him in 1957 and I lived there till I was 5.
Here we are in my front room, Mike is on the right.



I also had a similar experience with a member here (forgot the name) who found my pictures of Henlys Corner on the North Circular, where he worked in the garage and met his wife in the 1940s and also left the country, also I think for Australia. Without the internet tracking down all our old friends and neighbours would have been almost impossible.

Talk about a small world, with the internet it's even smaller.

LOL, he does and all

After they're shorn the sheep have to get 'dipped', in days gone past that meant they did have to be fully drenched with the chemicals. Now it's just a strip of chemical put up their back. It's to stop lice.

This was blooming in my front garden when I went out to pick up my paper Thursday morning.



I'm posting Friday's before I go to bed, as I'm off to Ottawa tomorrow for a few days. Should have some decent pics to share when I return.

Today's is a bit of a bore , really, unless you happen to like huge shopping malls just teaming with every famous name you ever heard in fashion, cosmetics, clothes, books and wonderful restaurants. It can get to be a drag, but I do pass through occasionally to drool at Tiffany's windows, or Chanel or even our lovely Shanghai Tang. It passes the time I guess. Here is Pacific Place in Admiralty, it is huge and always has lovely hanging decorations whatever the season. I guess the price of those is handed on to the buyers, which is why I can never afford anything in there.

Yesterday's junk pic was superb, Liz.

This is one of the more modern buildings in Rye - the mid-eighteenth-century Town Hall.

Another macro shot. The detail turned out quite well. Even the hairs on the stem can be seen.

Fabulous Martin.

Whilst I was waiting for my friend to return home yesterday I was watching the birds feeding outside her window. Then this cheeky chappy waddled into the garden for something to eat.

My helper with picture taking today.

Is this picture huge? If so, it's happened again Telly. Let me know and I'll remove it.

Decided after refreshing, exiting and re-entering, refreshing again, it is still HUGE. Sorry.
