We went for a drive yesterday and got held up in more roadworks ~ you can tell how long we were there the chap in the car in front of us got out and took his greyhound for a walk it took us 45 minutes to move about 2 miles ~
another fishing tale ~ on one occassion when Dad and Dick went fishing ~ this was again at Thorpe Green ~ it was a winters day and fishing had been a bit sparse ~ Dad had got his line caught up in a tree several times ~ so Dick would go over and give him a hand to get it down ~ somehow while retrieving the line from the tree the hook went through Dad's lip ~ it was a barbed hook so Dick went to his fishing basket to get a pair of pliers with the intention of cliping the barb off so Dad could pull the hook stem through without any pain ~ I don't know what he thought Dick was going to do with those pliers but he wasn't going to have any part of it and pulled the Hook plus the barb through his lip ~ it was very painful but my Dad was the best and biggest catch of the day that day !!!
Looking out of the window the other day noticed there were 3 woodpeckers on the feeders only managed to photo 2 of them as the other one flew away ~ don't know if this is unusual ~
