The other day Robert and I were out in the field test driving my Land Rover and our neighbour Polly came to see and ask if we wanted some fresh eggs from her chickens.
We were delighted and walked with her to the chicken coop.
We looked in on the girls and I said, “what’s that?” It looked like a shiny black bead looking directly at me from under the steps of the coop. It blinked and revealed itself to be the eye of a rat!
This rat wasn’t going to give up his eggs for anyone…oh no!
But we had Polly’s huge dog with us, (and he wanted an egg), and so eventually the rat saw the game was up and hopped away giving us the middle claw.
And me without my camera.
Today, I took a piece of lino and carved that daemon rat on it to show you exactly what he looked like…to the minutest detail!
I printed him on a piece of newspaper with the article, “The Value of Disrespect.”
It seemed to fit…lol.
Also yesterday I took this photo. Any idea what that is?
It’s the after effects of a huge military jet from a nearby RAF base disturbing a cloud. Cool, isn’t it?
