An Evening Out

Emily, me, and Brigitte in a pub garden yesterday evening. Photo taken on Brigitte’s mobile phone by an Australian visitor:

Brigitte, me, and Emily in the Smoky Drinky Bar later on:

Brigitte’s now gone back to Liverpool, and Emily and me are going to visit a Norman castle, or maybe an Owl Centre, or maybe just get lost in England (which is easily done, just by driving until you don’t know where you are any more).

At least it looks like it’s going to be a cooler day today. We’ve been having a heat wave for the past couple of weeks in England, with temperatures up at 30º C.

    As I did yesterday….. well…… I thought Emily might like to see some country roads on the way to Frank’s…. (I’m open for better excuses than that for getting lost on a motorway!!!)

    I had a wonderful time yesterday, Thanks Frank and Emily.

    Was nice to chat with you folks in Smokey-Drinky.
    Am chuckling at how the neighbors must be gossiping. :)

    This is a little closer, and there are prolly some creepy, scary plants there too.

    I was sitting out front smoking a cigarette the other day, and was thinking that “smokers” have a head start on “getting outdoors”. With all the campaigns to “get outside” and get exercise, and stop looking at your mobile device/get off your computer/stop playing video games or whatever, y’all are likely to already have a good idea as to what is out there in the creepy scary world before everyone else is banished from indoors.

    Looks like you all had an excellent time in the pub garden, even if ‘exiled to the outdoors’, and at 30C, you must be roasting (minus 5C here tonight). Norman castles and Owl Centres sound interesting. 🦉🚬

    Frank, how about taking Emily for a picnic on a hill fort, while the weather holds?

    This one looks most impressive.

    “The Herefordshire Beacon (aka British Camp) was constructed around the 4th century B.C. and in the centuries following, more banks and ditches were built lower down the hillside.
    This iron age hill fort is one of a remarkable series of such sites that extend in a belt from the Dorset coast into north-eastern Wales. It is larger than many and also one of the most imposing of these ancient structures.”

    OT: Just seen this on twitter.

    In 1980, there was a large conservative and semi-libertarian Establishment in this country… They have been replaced by Cultural Leftists:

    Does anyone here remember a book called “A diet of reason”? I don’t recall hearing of it but perhaps it was so influential that its views were, or became, simply common knowledge or even common sense?

    Wish I was with you. (And we have rains every day…)
