Quite liked how this snap from this afternoon came out. I always enjoy photos where you really can't tell what year they were taken in.

Well, save for the post 2001 registration plates anyway, but we'll deal with those in due course.
Love the picture, reminds me of the CitroJim church location teasers from his cycling. Will enjoy a bit delve. If its a Buckinghamshire or Bedfordshire Church, the net information on such things is immense :-D

My farmer neighbour asked me to help, she had young bullocks that had been castrated and she needed to wash the wounds "Grab hold of his tail and hang on tight."
Now that really takes some strength. :-D

No shutter clicks

Not from me today, so i may go in for a selection from the archives.

I probably introduce my own bias so I invite any member of the FCF to select a picture from the archive.

My method is to use this. Currently there are 525 pages on potd, now you may land on a page filled with verbage but every chance a few pictures will pop up. Just pop in 1-525 and see what gems can be dug up. from the page selected at random.
Nice if someone else comes up with a selection, but fear not if participation isnt forthcoming POTD will receive its customary POTD,

So random generator:

gives me 44 which I have to deduct from 525 as I have my posts listed backwards which gave me page 481.

I went there and there was only 1 picture to be found thanks to Jim:

Absolutely Mick do believe GABBY was a bit of a post-office bike, and ended up eventually with Davie up in Scotland!

I think without looking it up that is a Somerset Picture, couldnt be certain of the Village may be Langport Jim's childhood stomping ground. May even gone off on a tangent about blue rocks :-D

The tangent goes on Mick from page 44 and it does progress to warmemorials, cow and gate factory bombing, Blue Lias stone, Bath Stone and then onto Bobins series of posts and pictures on Corsham... :-D Jim loved it!
