Along the River Wye in August.




Just back from a very pleasant hour indeed taking in a walk along the River Wye just here near my folks' house. The River Wye (well this bit of it) ambles along between Herefordshire and Gloucestershire and is a big old meandering thing as it passes through these parts.

The field you can see currently has corn or some such crop in it, but a few years back it had spuds, some of which were liberated in a daring potato-break back to Bristol by me, Seamus, Bag and Walshy after a summer caper up here in Herefordshire.


A fine, sunny walk today encountering geese, swans, ducks and two bouncy German pointers.

I may now need to recover any lost bodily liquid, an my brother too, so it could be time for an afternoon snifter. And today it is my turn.

Glad you liked it! I think if you had been along on the walk you would have 'sneezed your twat off' as you once fantastically described hay fever!

Just off to get dressed then I am doing some fairly closely supervised gardening for the folks.

HaHa!!! Just had a good laugh at that field....

"Now then Baggey, I'd say you'd pull up a potato or two in your time?"...

"No Seamus, I have never stolen potatoes.."

"Ah T.F.! Sure ye have, pass me dat stick der..."
