Eye-Candy Blogfest!


This eye-candy blogfest is kindy hosted by Vicki Rocho.



This pic always brings a smile to my face!
Meet "Jumbo" my youngest daughter's first pony.  

Note he barely reaches the window's sill: absolutely 100% bombproof and never flinched when trucks passed him by even though he was no taller than the wheels! He was adored by everyone who met him.

To see other participants' go here.

Hi folks,

Hee hee - historical pic! Not quite thank God - 1980s image already shrunk from original and blown up for this blogfest it came out grainy.

Cotswold houses are built with lovely mellow yellow sandstone so they tend to look aged. That said the house itself dated back to 1700s, and spoilt in parts by much later windows. Inside there was one inglenook and a carved stone over mantel in the dining room. To say I loved that house is an understatement. But, divorce, well, sy no more.
