Friday Flappers – Another Gallery…

Yep… you know me well by now – birds and galleries… I love them both! So… why don’t we use a few random avian related tags to get images out of the library to use for today’s gallery?

OK… there you have it – as always, happy Friday… have a great weekend and don’t do what I wouldn’t!

Thursday Thoughts – Let’s Take A Break…

I’ve been at the Thursday Thoughts lark since last October, me thinks? So… here’s my thinking… next week, on Tuesday, we will hit the ten year milestone – and then, this blogger is going to take a BIG BREAK! The more I think about it, the more I’m liking the idea of a TOTAL SM fast – for at least two weeks… if not longer! What I may do between now and then is schedule some older photos to pop up on random days – just to wean you off daily posts, if you know what I mean?

It seems to me that blogging has lost the appeal it once had… maybe even more so now that our freedom has been severely curtailed and that free thought and the speech that goes with it is frowned upon by most of the totalitarian woke big tech platforms. I mean… how dare you call a man a man and a woman a woman anymore? When I last looked, the wildlife around me hadn’t yet fallen for the 110 genders thing. Males are still doing what males do best – especially now in breading season!

So… why don’t I share a bit of the birds… without the bees? It’s happy spring here, so the birds are doing what birds do in spring! Procreate and be manly… and womanly… as per required gender! So… why don’t I remind you… as per my friend Socrates…

Question Everything…

especially when you’re now supposed to believe that a man is a woman and a woman can’t breast feed anymore… as per always – stay safe, stay free – be happy!

Tuesday Tune – Be Happy…

Yesterday I mentioned a photo I wanted to use… so, why don’t I use that image today? Without getting too UN-PC – I’m sure you’ve heard the old stereotypical joke about people who wear very big hats who sit in the sun all day… well, this image sort of reminded me of those crazy days… when one could joke about other nationalities without fearing reprisals…

Sunseekers… Vegetating…

Yes… that is the pair of us… the good lady and yours truly… vegetating in the warm spring sun… well, maybe we’ll just say the spring sun… it may still be a few months before we can add the warm bit! Anyway, why don’t we keep with the theme and be happy??

Monday Memories – Another Gallery

I was going to share a photo I took yesterday – but that can wait for another day. Instead, I had a brainwave – search the gallery using the word Monday… and this is what I got. I kid you not, I have used each and every photo stored in the media files. In almost ten years these are the only photos that have the word Monday somewhere in the captions or photo titles. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I liked seeing them again! Happy Monday – happy week!

Sundays – Quiet But Meaningful…

Years ago, not long after this blog saw the light of day, I thought it good to feature churches on Sundays. I wonder why? Anyway… as I am rapidly approaching the 10 year milestone, why don’t I throw together a gallery showing some of the places of worship?

Seaside Saturday – Away…

I think we have been subjected to lockdowns here in Ireland almost longer than any other country on the planet. What started as the “two weeks to flatten the curve” has now really been taken to the extreme. Last year, about this time, we were told that we had to stay home… to flatten the curve. Well, as a result of all this flattening we (as a family) have lost out on so much. Yes, I know others have too… yes, I know we have to think of the health and safety of others… but by-oh-boy… this situation is now rapidly taking on ominous proportions. We were supposed to attend our son’s wedding in New York State last October… now I wonder if I will ever see them in the flesh again??

OK… so, this post wasn’t supposed to be a total rant… but, I’m thinking others are also longing to see different destinations… so, I’ll delve back into the media files and bring you a few seaside scenes from a select few Irish counties… from Donegal to Derry and Kerry to Wexford… not forgetting good old Counties Dublin and Wicklow, our home county…

Friday Flappers – A Wee Birdy Gallery

How about a wee birdy gallery to celebrate the best of birds. I’ve always had a thing for birds… maybe because of the flying thing. I have taken as many pictures of birds as others take of their family members… and cat, dog, fish… hamsters, turtles and pet pythons. So… I think, for the next few Flapper Friday’s I’ll simply use the #bird tag and see how we get on…

There you have it… some of these pics come from way back when this blog began… even before I owned my fist SLR!

PS – Happy Friday… and as always, don’t do what I wouldn’t!
