    Took your advice. I bought a coffee, some snacks and a sandwich for a guy down on his luck. Was concerned about him so I called someone I know who's sent outreach to do what they can. Fingers crossed help is imminent.

    One of my colleagues in the Beeb described my driving of our Range Rover as "buccaneer style", but not cavalier. :)
    One has to keep fighting to the end, it's the only way.

    A three hour Mountain Bike ride then my plan to sit in the garden scuppered by Mrs MC insisting things need tidying up, so worked In Garden until dusk. Still more points under my belt. :)

    Finished the sea painting series thank goodness, I got proper fed up of them...

    A little kindness goes a long way. Sometimes just a smile is enough. I take my hat and hats off to you Sir.

    So, I am not fed up with your sea paintings...

    Hey Alf - pretty sure any one of us here would've done the same...I'll check tomorrow and see what's happening. It broke my heart...so unfair.

    It's very scary how quickly some people's circumstances can change from a life of success to complete devastation. Volunteering for the Samaritans and Shelter for many years opened my eyes to the unfairness and inadequacy of society and for some life. A good deed from you today meant so much for that poor soul, well done.

    Oh dear @SlimLizzy
    Not good.
    You need a camouflage for the motorhome, and a dawn raid...
    People often let their guard down at dawn...I find :lurking: (I think that is camouflage...)

    Another beautiful morning. Frosty. Clear blue skies.

    The pair of robins have been viewing me and cat through the window. Definitely safe they thought, until the female blackbird who has marked my back garden as HER territory since early January, did a fly past scattering both robins. But as soon as she began digging worms, the robins came back...

    Yesterday was small birds of every variety, finches, sparrows, dunnocks, bluetits, greattits, coaltits, and the rest of that family. The magpies watch from the cherry trees, and mither the collared doves perching there. Seagulls are swirling overhead.

    We do have sparrow hawks, kestrels, and also buzzards literally floating in the thermals of the steelworks when conditions are right.

    That female blackbird is busy, flying from tree to tree - willow, ash, hawthorn, lilac, the buddleia has been cut down, but I left one very tall branch for a bird look out point in the corner of the garden...

    Frogspawn is usually on Easter Sunday in my garden, never before that date, and their breeding pond has mountains of the stuff coming up out of the pond quite high. I usually buy oxygenating pondweed and a fresh supply of pond snails around now, but obviously with lockdown that is not possible.

    In the meantime here is a grown up frog from my garden...digitally painted in Procreate.

    Still cannot find that bunch of car and house keys...

    Good Morning and 5.8 for me today. My own fault I gave in to a handful of chips with our meal last night, 5 to be precise.

    Another frosty start but with a wonderful Dawn Chorus and promise of a fine Spring like day.

    No plans for anything other than to drift along and see where time takes me.

    Keep safe make Time your friend today.

    In the style of the Old Masters, I can see this as an Oil on canvas gracing the wall of some city gallery.
