Went and got free range eggs from a friends farm this morning and went blueberry picking this afternoon where we also got freshly picked corn and courgettes, our kitchen is full of local organic food.

Yesterday a friend of ours was towing hubby's trike project behind his truck on some kind of dolly/strap thing. Our daughter was with him, she called us to say "the trike came off". It happened just after a turn on a two lane road, with a lake and a spillway on one side and a swamp on the other. The friend said at one point it was going along the road next to him before it went off the road, nearly hit a car that was parked and stopped just before it went in the swamp! Much "fun" was had getting it back on the road because we blocked traffic for a while, then proceeded very slowly to our destination. After all was said and done I did smile, another day in the life of me.

Another Find. Nothing wrong with this classic Weber Gril, I had a fire in it last night to clean it and it works as good as new...I wonder if this is a Police Bait Grill

It's probably what the local canibal used and he was getting rid of the evidence.

Reminds me of when my kids would tell me they found some money in my room, they were so confused when I told them, they had not found, they had taken, and it was stealing.
