Home (2)

Nothing if not dizzyingly varied. Despite, regardless of, and because of so many things, I still love the place in which I grew up.

Hi Trews

Lovely - has your cat been to a summer festival and done time in the children's face painting tent?

But Why? said...

Is that a cat? I thought it was a bird-dropping until I put my specs on and realised it was a mis-shapen rabbit...

Awww - a little bit of nostalgia eh?. 'Nipple' on a sign - some young lad with a mother fixation no doubt - real rebel that one. The Derbyshire folk are ace! I love working with them - I love the accent. Earth, gritty and warmhearted.

Hi pants - it's an amazing-looking cat isn't it? Not mine though, just a resident of the village. Mind you I read your comment wrongly at first, to the effect that I was imagining the cat painting children's faces...

I may well post up a photo with some bird-dropping on it, but why? (though I'm sure you won't exactly feel like you're missing out if I don't). Not for the sake of the birdshit itself though - the photo is of a very cheeky blackbird which kept landing on the windowsill and chirping to us that it was hungry.

I think all the Derbyshire folk who fit that description have moved out of the village in question, qv. I remember there used to be people like that there... oh alright, I'm being unfair - I do still see some people of that ilk round our way, and I love to overhear conversations in the pub for the combination of the accent, the articulation and the wit.

They are lovely, dj, but I don't know the owner (or, to be more accurate - the staff). The cat seemed too nice and dignified to be from my home village :)

Heheh you surprise me b-byrd - liking pictures of trees and water? Who'd ever have thought it?
