Lucy loved getting intolucy in box.jpg  small spaces, especially cardboard boxes. On one occasion, as she jumped in, the box flipped upside down, so we were treated to the sight of a cardboard box 'walking' across the floor!

yes, she was - and despite her small size, she ruled the roost! Sadly, long gone - that photo is from a bit over 50 years ago

Thank you all,

Wonderful trip! Up with the lark, most things dripping in red shades as the sun rose over our wings. Passed Detroit and then across Lake Eyrie (about 15 mins) its only small you see! Then on to the best bit, the Northern tip of the Appalachians over Pennsylvania. Amazing colour and light spectrums, meanwhile mountain goats stop chomping to look up (or across) at you. Over Allentown, then slowing for a bit before getting landing permission. Handed over our mail and special parcels and took on board our return medical consignment and mail. As if by magic my two old pals arrived by coach, they'd had a good flight over the pond sleeping most of the way and then had the pleasure of the return trip in a much smaller conveyance. They were every bit as stunned as I had been the first (and every) time, as we flew inside the valleys with the sun spiking through the clouds, attracting withering stares from passing Eagles.

Finally landing safely and everyone toasting our Pilot for a faultless performance. Then to home, ecstatic greetings from the dogs of course. Doris has particularly taken to one of my friends and he took her out for an early evening stroll down to the Lakeside. Tillie arrived with one of her daughters and prepared a super meal. Then we all went down to the 'local' for refreshment, where my sporting 'stars' were greeted with great warmth and never had to look far for a drink!

One lady remarked, 'Judge' I could listen to you three talking all night, We already had one resident Englishman, but now we got three!

A day I'll never forget ...

Mind you we all rose very late on today and now they're both asleep in front of the TV, good job I'm recording the cricket!

A cheeky cat had wandered in and was giving me the once over..


That's how we ended up with five cats, the cat that wandered in was one plus four. :grin:

One of them is almost a perfect double for the late Rutger Hauer (Blade-runner) and indeed one lady in the bar last night asked him for his autograph and then looked crestfallen upon discovering he was merely a limey 'ball game player'. I pointed out her hero had passed on in 2019. "Oh my God" she wailed in disbelief! :wink:

Cassandra - what a super, and well deserved, day! Fascinated that you overflew Allentown - Lita Roza's 'They've locked up my lover in Allentown jail' promptly popped into mind, a song I haven't hear in many a long year.
Win the toss, out the opposition in and drop catches - oh dear!
