Pictures

A selection of photographs I snapped during our very long weekend in London. Actually, it's also a kind of quiz for your delectation. Each picture is numbered. At the bottom there are five captions - all lettered - but can you work out which picture goes with which caption? It is an intellectual challenge that might have even defeated Albert Einstein!

    The Egyptian geese are strikingly beautiful.

  4. 5-C.....4-B .....3-A .....2-E .....1-D. Oh, Brother, am I right? Hope your knee is feeling better. My good friend, Brook, who is a member of the Frog Hollow Stitch & Bitch Club, had her knee replaced on Friday. Talked to her today and she is walking with only a cain, has only to take Tylanol before her physical therapy, and is feeling just wonderful for the first time in 15 years!! Think about it my friend! Lovely time you spent with your gorgeous son.....if I were only 25 years younger, he would be on my radar!! Just kidding, Mr. Pudding.

    1. Quizzes can be frustrating when you don't know the answers. Sorry if I made you feel intellectually inadequate Meike.

  9. At least you had the good sense to go to the bar floor of the Shard and get a drink. I paid for the observation deck which is ridiculously expensive and comes with NO DRINK!

    1. Our daughter works in The Shard so she advised against a visit right to the top. BUT and this is a big BUT, my non-alcoholic cocktail cost (gulp!) £9!!!!

  10. I sent you an email (again) Mr. Pudding. If you don't get it this time, may I suggest you check your junk or spam folders just in case they're going there instead of your inbox? :)

  12. Thanks YP for your words of comfort.

  13. If the drinks are so expensive you'd think they'd serve it in a glass and not a jam jar.
