Today was pretty murky. This morning, through the window I watched blackbirds feeding on crab apples. They generally dropped the fruit onto the ground, flew down and ate themΒ where they fell.

This afternoon and early evening was spent watching rugby on T.V.

First came Scotland (in striped shirts) v. Georgia (in red).

Wales (in red) v. South Africa (in green) was to follow.

Finally we had England (in dark blue) v. Argentina (in blue and white stripes).

Any text would be in danger of spoiling. That lets me of the hook.

Jackie collected a takeaway meal from The Raj in Old Milton for ou evening meal. She drank Hoegaarden whilst I drank Reserve des Tuguets Madiran 2014. My main meal was naga prawn with special fried rice; we shared poppadoms, pooris, paratha, and sag bahji.


  1. Goodness. No wonder it’s referred to over here as football for the criminally insane. There was blood!! and ear protecters!! I wonder if they have the same concussion problems our American footballers do? The blackbirds were quite sedate in comparison. I like the idea of them feasting on crab apples.

  2. Where’s the Wallabies & All Blacks, How can anybody publishing a post, with Rugby as it’s main theme, omit the Australian and New Zealand teams?
    πŸ‘Ώ 😈 XD πŸ™„

  3. Birds are always one of my favorite subjects, Derrick. Your rugby shots were quite entertaining!
    I got back from my Mom’s so was able to listen to 1st quarter on radio and finish watching our Ohio State University play football which went into two overtimes! This created fun texts to the guy (who lingers between friend and boyfriend) to sound off on. Guys are so emotional about sports! πŸ˜‰ I meanwhile got my laundry completed and rounded up three grandies to take to the movie, “Moana.” My son and co-worker, Linda, came. It has beautiful island and water, plus Pacific mythology in the animated film. My DIL was still shopping the madness sales with baby Hendrix. πŸ™‚
