    Someone in the village has made a Boris Johnson scarecrow.

    He was The midnight milkman to us. We always had to beware of him on our way home to Church Eaton in the early hours in the 70’s, quite often the bugger would forget to put his headlights on.

    ETA Bollox, forgot your add quote. This was in reply to @Thehooperman's post.



    Edit - Just as well that somebody's watching over you...

    ... two people at the same time for the first occasion in the 25 years that I've known them.

    This has come as a great revelation.

    They were actually two hundred yards apart, but I could still see the first one that I encountered when I came across the second one.

    For the whole of those 25 years, I have considered them to be a single person with a very poor memory of our recent conversations.

    I now plan to find out names - and apply them to the correct half of this duplicate person - eventually.

    Seen that about a few times. For some reason the term 'bellend' springs to mind.

    Just seen a wood pigeon trying to join his mates on my front lawn, from the other side of the one foot high ornamental hedge. Took him four attempts of trying to walk through a tiny gap, getting his head through each time, but his body too fat to squeeze through. Ended up his mates showing him how it was done by hopping over the top to join him instead .:rolleyes:

    I actually flew on that airline (I think it was Southwest Airlines in the US or something like that) paying off a ship in Beaumont Texas once. It was the only airline in the world where people fought over getting an aisle instead of a window seat. :heyhey:

    More scarecrows. These have been done by the local school. They are thanking all the key workers which I thought was a lovely thing to do.

    My neighbour across the way has put this up in her front garden. Can you imagine a nurse like that ??? You sure as hell wouldn't give her any trouble. :heyhey:

    (She tells me she made all the kit herself out of odds and sods.)

    I have seen instances of people wearing a life-size picture of their face on their chest, so patients have some sort of reference to start from...

    Another brilliant scarecrow has appeared in the village.
    There seems to be a theme this year.
