Serves you right, TA! Big_Laugh

(nice spot, BTW, Brightest Spark Laugh )

We have a pair of collared doves as well as a pair of wood pigeons. I love them.

Wave Danny, do you find that the wood pigeons chase the collared doves away from the bird table.  Mine do and if they continue with that behaviour they will be going in the pot!!    Yum Yum       Big_Laugh   Big_Laugh

What a brilliant title that would be for your forthcoming book, Joanna.

Subtitle: My Latvian Years Laugh

It has been raining most of today here too, Danuta, although it has brightened up since late afternoon. Still, the ground needs quite a bit of rain and the forecast is for a few more rainy days this week. At least, it keeps F indoors where she can catch up on some much needed rest. And tidying Cheers

Crikey (or Cripes, as Toffeeapple would say) - steady on, old bean. 500 words is a quantum leap from 4 words - and most of us struggle with that! Big_Laugh

I like the way you are thinking, MOS, but I also appreciate your need to deploy the  Tardis

I guess we are both in for a bit of trouble now, especially from um as is north of the border.

Quick. Buy a Mutley bullet proof helmet. It works like garlic V zombies. Cheers
