Just watch out for the feet, they are more deadly than the beak!

I remember when i was a child (many centuries ago Pax) my cat Suzy wandered into my father's greenhouse. I noticed it doing so and went over to get him out but I managed to accidently startle it. The poor thing rattled off God knows how many panes of glass until he found the right way out.






I say 'he' - Suzy was a boy! don't ask

I like to tell Ewen that I was four-and-a-half when The Joshua Tree first came out.

We're going to relive Ewen's long-ago childhood on the Ferris wheel at Nay Aug Park.

I have had a huge number of birds come visiting after trying to fly through glass windows. A lot end up with broken collarbones for some reason.

I watched it fly from outside the front of my house to the top of a silver birch tree, some 10-15 feet off the ground. It was there for a good while. When eventually I looked back to see it had gone. At no time was it sat in my flower bed, although I'm sure it must have been stunned because it made one hell of a noise!

It wasn't little either. If it wasn't a kestrel then it was a sparrowhawk. I don't think it could have been anything else that can be found in the Midlands.

The funniest thing I've ever seen was the impression of a pigeon's eye, and it's spread-eagled wings in the dirt on my parents bedroom window!

nevermind four-and-a-half when TJT was released, you weren't even born when I got my first U2 album!

Now THAT is a bizarre thought.

You must be the envy of all your friends with your wee girlfriend!

Regarding age difference...nobody's asked how old you are and I've not said, simply because it's not come up in conversation and I don't think about it.....usually

they'll be envious of me just because of who you are.
