Back in Sheffield now. I have been checking out the photographs I took in Malta and Gozo. There were more than three hundred but for your interest and my weblog diary records, here's a little gallery of ten. Click to enlarge:-

keen on trapping or shooting migrating birds.

  1. YP on the orange horse will do wonders for his street cred, I'm sure! ;)

  2. JENNY I won't tell you the orange horse's name but she needed a good whipping to get her going.

  3. When both of one's feet are planted on solid ground and both of one's hands are firmly grasping a large orange object sticking out from between one's legs, there is a name for such an activity, but it is not "riding"... I'm just sayin'...

  4. That big squirty bottle of tomato ketchup ruins the ambiance somewhat

  5. RHYMES WITH INNUENDO I do believe I just sniffed some uncharacteristic vulgarity and there was me thinking you were a gentleman!
    EARL GRAY Ha! Ha! You're right. I should have moved the damned thing.

  6. You must have some gypsy in your soul...you have to wander around so. Nice to see you 'in the flesh'...just as I imagined you.

  7. Yes, I have to agree with Earl Gray ~ it made me think OMG ~ where ever we are in the world the gold old Tom Sauce (dead horse) is a standard condiment. Mind you, as I say that, it is a whole food group for my son.

  8. LIBBY What you imagined me riding on a small orange horse called Jenny? Spooky!
    CAROL CUNNINGHAM Maybe I wasn't paying full attention but I didn't realise you had a son. I guess he's called Bruce...or Rolf? Remember the old saying - man cannot live by tomato sauce alone.
