Fishing and other things

Old photo of me holding my prize catch - this one didn't get away...I did put him back into the water and he disappeared with a splash of his tail....

 

Last night getting quite late, we had a helipoter hovering right above the bungalow, if the pilot had put his hand out of the window I could have given him a cup of tea..

Lyn thinks it landed in the field right next to us, .. shortly afterwards it came back, it was so low,  it seemed to be circling quite a wide area.   It was too dark to see what colour it was - the only thing that could be seen was a flashing light - I was glad when it disappeared and I couldn't hear the noise it made.  I found it quite scary...

Had to sneak Barneys picture in - dusting around found these in different rooms

Hi Ally, nice pictures!  The helicopter would have been the police.  We see them from time to time here, I was in the garden hanging clothes on the line when one was hovering.  For a moment I thought he was watching me...lol!  I was glad to get back indoors.  Well done on the tench, the only fish I caught was only as big as a goldfish and I threw the rod so far back that he left the line and landed somewhere in the bushes...lol  I did feel a bit guilty about that...we couldn`t find where it landed, poor thing! :o(

hehe mystery helicopter huh ? livin not far from the battle area around thetford we get  quite a lot of helicopters an one hovered to the back of our house for ages one time .. apparently it's was to do with radar detection or the lack of it though next door said he only stopped to answer his mobile lol X spike X

We get Helicopters 'Hovering' quite near from time to time.
Ours are the 'Police' (searching)
It must be quite a sound, living in a Rural area
Enjoyed the pics'

I never saw a Tench fish before.    Helicopter hoovering over your home?    What is going on with the pilot.    Barney's "office" looks well organized.    mark

We get helicopters regularly hovering over us - the police trying to find suspects (not us).  It can be quite scary as they come in so lo.  Lol at Barneys toys.  I think we can beat you though, we have a huge box of them but only a few balls.

Now Barney will have to find new hiding places for his balls! Helicopters do make a noise, we get them regularly in Brighton. Jeannette,

Hey, Ally .... I love the pictures.  Yes, you did make quite a catch there !  And Barney looks happy to be surrounded with his lost toys.  So, did you ever find out why the helicopter was hovering about ?  That is the most unnerving thing.  I live in an area surrounded by open hills which are covered in brush during the dry season, so when I hear them, it usually signals a fire.  Hope all was well !   Tina  http://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme

Did you ever find out what the copter was up to? Your little fish graphic is so pretty. Paula

csandhollow said...

Did you report the copter? That does not sound like a normal thing to do.

nedmoh said...

Helicopter sounds wierd. I would feel un-nerved by that too. If it happens again report it to police. Thanks for comments on my journal. Love Conniex

Helicopters are very noisy, we hear them often in the summer. LOL! Barney! Looks like he is guarding his balls from Nin. Nice prize catch, glad you put him back.                 ~Deborah
