    Thanks @geefull

    I am shocked how much the sanitising facilities have lapsed here. This area has always been a bit iffy with this. There are several local shops where all the assistants do not wear masks, despite being mandatory. This is good for me as it makes lipreading possible (so a double edged sword in a way).
    I will probably always wear a mask indoors, but outside I don't unless there are crowds of people shoulder to shoulder (despite social distancing). I always carry a couple of spare masks because this hot weather for me they get soggy easily (in a few minutes), so I might put a fresh mask for each shop/place I enter. This is for my comfort. I honestly don't know how people wear the same mask all day. I couldn't. And I have no idea how that can be hygienic. I have seen food stains inside a mask when someone has taken it off for me to lipread, and I want to throw up. Most people wouldn't see that. I had better get off my soapbox...

    I have never tried the starch sized Hahnemuhle paper. You make very good use of it. Your paintings are an oasis of peace and calm. And I look forward to finding your post when I wake up in a morning..

    I used to read the Eagle comic (Dan Dare) when I could borrow one/some @Muddy Cyclist
    It was considered only suitable for girls to read Bunty and Judy type comics :grumpy: in those days...

    I still have two Giles Annuals. I spent hours looking through those...
    I am glad you have a full set.

    Thank you @geefull and congratulations to mr gee for not having to water the garden. I like the way that you have juxtaposed the dark far shore with the snow topped mountain in the background and those splendid blue waves

    Good Morning and 6.1 for me today. Cheese Omelette and Salad last night so expected lower.

    All family around for a meal tonight and a treasure hunt demanded followed by a game of Dixit, a board game which they all love playing. Treasure hunt will include some need to write a two line rhyming poem for each clue found in the garden so I hope the rain holds off. So Mrs MC and I look like being busy.

    Remember earlier in the year we started a pond in a galavanised bath tub. Well it worked, flowers, frogs and some sort of Larva swimming around, birds also bath in it.

    Keep safe and take time to be still, watch and listen.

    Pleased the wet weather pleased someone, Mr Gee. :)

    What a superb painting I like the strong presence of the hill and the contrast between the sea and hills giving that perfectly straight coastal line, the hint of the distant snow capped mountain gives great depth, I like this and as I have said before your own great style.

    Good morning everyone from a decidedly damp start here at our little house on the prairie
    The wonder wheel of antipasti overload together with something from New Zealand, sitting in the warmth of the evening on our balcony last night rocked in at 5.2 this am

    A marvelous day yesterday, every duck and goose in the park had to be acknowledged, all swings tested and the group of stone penguins on the promenade had each to be patted and spoken to before a walk down the beach. Strange looks from onlookers so good job we had an infant in tow to explain.

    Oh no! Can’t believe that bungling Useless Handblob is canoodling in sight of his Damien Hurst snap of Mrs Queen - surely he is frantically searching for the missing 600 million lateral flow tests amongst the detritus on his desk - “trace” - look it up in your colouring book.

    Hornbill (I think) on some hawthorn today - procreate - didn’t bring any art materials with me. Have a great day, don’t book that green list holiday just yet - enjoy your garden - must have koffy.

    Not seen the back copies @dogslife but remember well the originals and they were almost engineering drawings and were far more detailed than any seen elsewhere.

    Just the sort of education needed for those of us destined to work in the former engineering economy before we lost our way as a country that made things.

    Oh yes, with his wasted body/limbs and enlarged green head levitating around in a little 'boat' thing. :)
