Weekly Chat (Non-Osprey), 18 April 2021


I hope everyone has a joyful, safe week! Be sure to check back to last week's thread to see Lindy's photos and other posts!

  • Thanks Diane! Same to you.
  • Diane:  Just watched Small Town, Big Deal about the covered  bridges in Parke County - that's just near you I think.....    

  • Just a thought

  • In reply to Annette in SoCal:

    ANNETTE: Yup. I live on the Parke County line. I'm definitely in covered bridge country. I haven't watched that documentary yet. It's on my list, but I keep forgetting. Did you enjoy it? This county is suffering because tourism is very important to the economy, and so many of the festivals and other events have had to be cancelled because of COVID.

    EDIT: I just watched it, Annette, because you reminded me. I've been to all of the places in the show, and I know most of those folks. It's a good representation of our rural life here.

    I don't know whether the licensing will allow U.K. people to watch it, but HERE IS THE LINK. Just scroll down and click on the episode titled "Covered Bridges." The show is only 20 minutes long. 

  • Good Morning and thank you to Diane for starting us off. I love the unique covered bridges there.

    It's a very grey cloudy sky here. We hope to go for a flat walk a little up the coast from here, once we can stir ourselves but it's a cold wind today, so will have to wrap up.

    Hope everyone has a good Sunday.
  • Thanks Diane

    LINDY Not a great morning here either.

    Benson is in his usual Sunday morning spot which is sitting on OHs knee while he is watching Andrew Marr.
  • It's a beautiful morning here - sorry for those where it isn't. Just had a lovely walk among the last of the daffodils and the start of the fruit blossom - possibly plum and pear. Hope the frost doesn't get it.

    Have a good Sunday, everyone.
  • Our walk included a drive on the coastal road where the gorse was plentiful and bright, its at its best just now. Most of the pics I took through the car window came out too blurry, but here is one:
