it got my thumb and I had to get help to get it off, Man what a GRIP.

Cheers, Grant...I think he must have been taking a breather after a busy morning's fishing...he was sat there for a good two or three minutes..

I think maybe Grant meant the owl. ;-)

Not had much chance to get out and with the camera lately, but took these when I did manage to get out....the kingfisher was one of five that I saw while walking along Lancaster canal...but he was the only one who was kind enough to sit still long enough so I could take a photo.

The barn owl photo was taken yesterday when we took my granddaughter to a local farm village. She's the one in the last photo...thought I'd try and take this shot...looking through a rolled up drawing she was colouring... with my camera on the phone, rather than the Nikon...

We had a cracking walk round a local nature reserve yesterday, the temperature remained sub-zero all day but the landscape looked spectacular...plus we were continually followed around by robins, we'd never seen so many before, even managed to ger four of them to feed off our hands...

It's a true adress, really, and every kid who post to Tomten will get a reply from him :)

I'm not a big lover of religion or faith in any of it's forms, they seems to create so much misunderstanding and panic in the ranks if you're unwilling to follow their chosen path. But I fully understand that many get solace and comfort from their faith...but me.. I'm happy wandering in the wilderness with my moral compass to guide me...

Christmas....when my daughters were very young, they were taught about the apparent birth of this chap who was smarter than the average bear... We took them to church on Chistmas Eve and Christmas Day, even though I didn't belive in in all. I let them see, listen and make their own minds up, it wasn't and still isn't my place to instill my beliefs on others, even though know I'm right... ;o)

Anyway...as we approach this festival....which ever way you choose to celebrate it or not.....I wish you all peace, love and happiness and your families good health...

Crikey....I've rambled a bit...not like me....and a serious post to boot...I'll have to have a lie down..

I raise a glass to friends, to those no longer with us, that are always in our hearts....

Right, I'm off to write my letter to Santa...
