A diverse offering twixt the interesting, the unusual, and the amusing.

It's not uncommon, in my area, to find stone-age implements; arrow heads, axe heads, scrapers, etc. So seeing that my neighbour, Laurence, had just been doing some serious ploughing, I did a bit of 'field-walking' to see if she'd turned-up any treasures.
What I wasn't expecting to find was the above. I imagine it's the speedometer from a Massey Ferguson tractor. The only questions are, which one, when did it fall off, and has she noticed that it's missing? It looks quite new.
I shall pop up to see her some time, and I'll let you know!
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 44 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
