    Thank you. He is improving. Mr K carried him into the house and he just laid down in the hall. I gave him some Manuka honey. He felt so poorly I had to feed it to him.

    Since then he is definitely feeling a bit better as he is now drinking water and moving around the downstairs.

    I was talking to the Ranger while he drove us back to our car. He said the other Rangers were furloughed. So Archie was actually rescued by the Lone Ranger.

    The Grey Plover is one of the tundra plovers and breeds in the high Arctic.
    They spend time on our estuaries on migration, sadly there are not as many now as 30+ years ago.
    They were a common bird in the Wash when I was young and we did the 100 mile return journey on our push bikes to the Welland and Witham (Lindis) mouths.
    This one was on the Solway the other day.

    Hopefully Archie is on the mend. He looks more alert and has watched a bit of One Man and his dog.

    He also asked for his dinner, but didn't persist. He has now gone back to sleep.

    Cat is decidedly not happy with ear drops and antibiotics. But so far ( three days in to six day course) no injuries to humans and Cat is still forgiving us. This is not to say he doesn't resist taking medicaion. But he does not hold our endeavours against us. Too many negatives will anyone understand me?

    Krystyna, It is about twice what you would need to man handle a sledge across Antarctica!
    I am not suggesting it would be the kind of project a young lady should undertake and certainly not an old man.:)

    Early bird score is 6.2, maybe I need a fast day or two to shock this number down.

    Driving Miss Daisy today who, apparently, has a bad cough following her social activities. I shall place a chain of garlic around my neck and wield the stake of 'appropriate doom' in her direction ;)

    Good morning everyone from our little house on the prairie
    The wonder wheel of an anitipasti platter of tasty tit bits came in at 5.2 this am
    @gennepher - great fun finger painting of a feather falls, so vibrant and love your teasle.
    @jjraak - fabulous capture in Richmond Park - sounds like a great day.
    @lindisfel - grey plover - excellent
    @alf_Josiah - enjoy your break.

    Not sure about today. My dad is in ICU in France - not Covid related.
    Koffy on the go, hope everyone has a good day.

    5.8 this cold morning with expected blue skies for one last day.

    We were still sitting in the garden yesterday pm, which was great for the second half of September, but there was a chill by 1600.
    The main object of interest were a good number of Speckled Wood butterfles flying around our probably too large beech tree and overgrown snowberry bush.

    Here's hoping we all stay safe today and you have some good news from France on your Dad, Dunelm.
