    A froggy went a wooing - excellent colours, full of life and energy. Brilliant work. Keys seem to stay hidden until you stop searching for them - and there they are.

    That sounds like a perfect plan for today and exactly what I will be doing.

    That is so annoying. They have got to be somewhere. I bet Popeye has hidden them somewhere.

    Good morning everyone from another wonderful beginning to the day in the dark and dangerous north
    The wonder wheel of a hot chicken salad came in at 4.6 this am

    We had an excellent walk down our beach yesterday - quite early - before there were too many people about. The tide was way out so more of the storm exposed petrified forest, that usually lays under layers of sand, was exposed. Lots of tree stumps, clusters of roots, some quite big. And the remains of a wooden boat.

    Nearly at the end of my current book - just the appendices to work through and then choose what to read next. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M Pirsig (again) [I have a 1980 edition - kindly given to me by a friend. The pages are nicely seasoned and have that wonderful book smell]. Other options are The Art of Happiness by The Dalai Lama, Heroes by Stephen Fry or Troy by the same author - or something else? I still have my copy of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) kicking about - it’s version III-R - 1987 so not up to date - could consult it and claim some interesting agnosia - that would keep Mrs Miggins off my back but she would probably say that she already knew about it.

    Anyhow, a couple rows of rocky tops for today and a bonus photo of a tree stump. Have a wonderful day if you can, as always, koffy calls.

    Thank you for the painting compliments @dunelm
    Excellent advice for hunting keys strategy, I think I shall follow that...a pair of ravens are now hopping in my tall cherry trees spreading their huge wings, and a flock of long tailedtits are bobbing their long tails in and out the willow branches. Keys can wait, garden calls...
    Have a brilliant day!

    This is good had a carb heavy lunch yesterday. Today will be trying to resist the hot cross buns. They smell so good But 41g carbs.
    Plan to try and get a short video of Errant today. Will he cooperate?

    @gennepher love the frog.
    @dunelm :sour: jealous, MrSlim and I attempted a walk yesterday, along with all the rest of Birmingham. We gave up trying to park and abandoned the idea. Will try again on Monday, perhaps will be fewer people out and about then.

    Rocky mountains are great, and that green-blue colour which I love...

    I would be forever going there...before the crowds...

    Good morning all from Bath. Up with the lark, Arthur in tow.

    A clear sunny morn with an FBG of 6.2mmol. Lots of life around already and police gearing up to stop covidiots who were everywhere especially along the way in Bristol where bedlum ensued! There was even a report of folks driving all the way into Cheddar Gorge with a Chinese takeaway Let's not blow this now!

    Breakfast is a fritatta and smoked salmon...then gardening in our courtyard before waving goodbye to the old jalopy which needs cleaned and readied for the low loader to take her away before the new guy arrives tomorrow.

    Wishing you all on this fine day a splendid one!

    Ah Mountains and what a great range that is, sadly I'm missing mountains as well as the sea, so nice to see some more from yourself, I like that blue wash in the foreground and fading distant mountains.

    On the book smell front I remember seeing an article a few years back of an organisation locking up books for safe keeping as they believe with digital age books would become a thing of the past. Interestingly before they put them into vaults they had a team who recorded how they looked, felt and smelt for future generations to experience what books were like.

    We have a unique one off set of leatherbound Lord of The Rings covered for me by a bookbinder friend. Apparently hidden behind the leather covers are marks of his trade and clues to who bound them for future generations to find when they finally fall apart and need renovation. He used Victorian Lettering Tools for the titles and raised the leather so it looks like tree roots run through it, magical, my Grandchildren think they are full of spells and mystical. :)

    So your ancient root pictures were also very apt today.

    I once worked beside a lady who was very successful. Many years later, I happened upon her, passing her on the street. She was homeless and in need of immediate help. She burst into tears and I just held her in my arms and the whole story flooded out. Long story short, we got her the help she needed, back on her feet and she's now working with a small advertising agency in the 3rd sector and has a lovely wee flat not so far from us...

    So I hear you. And you're so right. It can happen at breakneck speed.

    Great work volunteering there. Hats off to you.

    @gennepher can you recall what was in your other hand when you came in with the keys? You probably already looked wherever you put that item.... but you never know.

    So many times this happens, it's very sad. Sounds like you are a caring soul with a good heart.
