The Owl and The Pussy Cat

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea In a beautiful 'red and white'(!) boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, 'O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are!What a beautiful Pussy you are!'

Galvanizing and clouds

Lat week we drove up to Birmingham to collect our re-galvanised anchor and chain. I think this is the only place in the country that can galvanize things with moving parts. They have to be spun to stop the whole lot coming out in one solid lump
A galvanizing factory

baskets of galvanized things

more galvanized things
I could have taken photos there all day,
it was fascinating
I'm easily pleased?!
Our newly galvanised anchor chain
And on the drive home we saw these. Vince has been reading up about clouds, so one day we'll know what the weather is going to do simply by looking at the clouds, ahem (maybe??!!)
lenticularis clouds (they look like lentils, sort of!)
