    Depressing news today.

    Slogans won't get the World king and Rasputin out of this one.

    We are all in a big fix now and need to find a way to keep those who are vulnerable safe.

    Good morning everyone from a gleam of yellow and a pale hue of blue in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of and early dinner out with eldest granddaughter came in at 5.4 this am

    Granddaughter number 2’s birthday yesterday - 6 - video link to see fun and frolics with a piñata in the garden and then the ceremonial opening of gifts and cards, twin sisters helping out.

    @Muddy Cyclist - hug for the prospects of giant tomatoes - lino prints - loads of effort - takes me back to my mother making Christmas cards and an ink stained oilcloth on the kitchen table. I like your sketch.

    @geefull - thank you for your kind comments. Tree - smashing and yes, will make a wonderful avatar. Another fine watercolour - I like the clouds, heavy with rain. Well, all of it really.

    @gennepher - out and about with IPad - great industrial scene - reminds me of the A55 going past Ellesmere Port and Queensferry on our way to the mountains.

    @JohnEGreen - you put yourself down - great stuff - and on a phone. I see a murmuration - fabulous.

    Phew! I hope everyone has a very good day, I now need some koffy.

    I am sure, John, if monkeys can write a Shakespearean sonnet, you in relatively short order will produce a Turner!
    Keep up the practice.

    Thank you. I can oblige with that industrial landscape if you like @dunelm it is a few miles up the road...I wouldn't mind an early morning visit to The Works nearby, while I'm still allowed to cross the border into that strange land called England, for bits and pieces.

    I love your little scene of froggy, fisherman, and dragonflies...brilliant!

    Thank you.

    So much going on in your art today, lazy fisher men, busy insects and Mr Froggy looking very suspiciously at that helicopter. Some fine drawing techniques included in this digital art.

    Good Morning, late, and 6.3 for me today.

    Still decorating here, what a waste of good weather and free vitamin D but takes my mind off the discomfort of my bloomin abscess. Lots to do before new floor can be laid, Mrs MC wants Parquey, saw pound signs in fitters eyes :) , this of course is to be blamed on Current Covid pandemic, no money spent on Holliday so it can be spent elsewhere. :joyful:

    Do whatever you do best and enjoy it. Keep safe.

    Sounds like a great plan MC but the weeks of neglect to the house mean a busy day if I can get myself up from the sofa!

    Asda finally arrived but I was not lazy in my waiting. A quick (for me) rendition of one of my fav places... Jodrell Bank, or as it's known to Brummies - Jodrell Bank :)

    Azure skies and bright sunshine this cool but
    beautiful autumn day. Walked up the hill at the back of the house but visibilty not as good as it can be, perhaps 30 miles.

    We went out to as close to Scotland as we could at Bowness on Solway on monday am where a few birders were loosely gathered watching and photographing Arctic shore birds at high tide. I didn't try very hard to get any picts but because the road round the 'island' is very close to the shore a car makes an ideal hide.

    When we got home we found the 'young horse woman' who rides her two hunters past us every day, had left us another dozen eggs, as she has done particularly during lockdown since March....this has been done out of kindness, refusing to accept any payment.

    At first glance I though you had posted a photograph, then I realised it's a great digital rendition of this iconic place, brilliant.

    It's known to us Black Country Folk as Jodrul Bonk. :)

    Always found it funny how people confuse Brum and the Black Country dialects. I blame Benny from Crossroads
