In reply to Pat O:
Pat: What a coincidence! The photo was taken by N. Lewis of the U. S. National Park Service at Shenandoah National Park. I used the pic for my card because it's labeled "Public Domain," which means there's no copyright in force, so anyone can use it for any reason. Goldfinches nest on my patch every year, and beautiful flocks of them migrate through here. We used to have bluebirds here, but I haven't seen one for many years. I think it's because the ecosystem has changed.I hope your friend had a good time in the U.S.
LINDA – You may buy him underwear but will he wear the new? Perhaps my mother’s trick – she would burn the old stuff while my father was out for the day LOL.
Mostly successful morning – I delivered extinct jumpers to shop that collects for Dogs Home, captured a few photos, but alas no shoes from shop recommended by Big-Sis. They were all clunky & heavy looking when I wanted a simple pair of “slip-ons”. OH went to city to lunch. Having left when I was out, he forgot his mask. It must be worn on bus, no wonder driver glared at him.
A partly successful trip -- bought 3 pillows altogether, as a Sale was on, & so I pointed out that our guest bed has rather old ones... However, when we got home I found that the pillow my OH had chosen for himself looked decidedly plumper, and wasn't the one he chose at all - in fact it was a much plumper price, too! It's going back. <sigh> Marks & Spencer next --- whilst my OH read a book in the car, I bought a sweet little dress for baby of the family, Rosie, and my OHs boxer short undies. I presented him with them on our return & he only protested mildly. So that's OK. :-)
Edit: AQ -- I throw them in the bin one at a time, over time, when they're getting old!
