This Later Season

This morning I learned that my PSA result was clear – no action required. It is an interesting phenomenon that this is one situation in which no news is good news. The GP only contacts the patient if there is a problem. Otherwise the patient has to make the call.

This afternoon Jackie drove me to Sears Barbers for Peter to cut my hair. Afterwards we visited Tanners Lane,

where a few others were having fun. Two women, children, and a Labrador collected shells; a young man walked his dog; two people rowed a canoe.

A gull atop a post ignored the swirling eddies where currents clashed in the otherwise calm waters.

En route to this site we had noticed a glimpse of the view across to the Isle of Wight from Shotts Lane. The second picture reveals the Isle of Wight ferry and smoke from a fire on the island. The cattle in the third image conveniently wandered into shot.

In order to remove the five barred gate from the scene I needed to scale it a bit, then climb down again.

Pheasants in Sowley Lane, no longer dressed in their mating finery, reflected this later season by picking at stubble in a ploughed field. Others sought the shelter of the Becks Farm drive.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. I’m sure you are relieved to get that no news is good news.
    It was nice of the cows to wander in for a photo op, and the shots of you climbing the gate are great. Did you know Jackie was taking them?

  2. So glad to hear of your good news! πŸ™‚

    Climbing gates/fences, eh?! Good for you! They say the “grass is always greener” on the other side! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ It looks like that was after your haircut. ??? Your hair looks great! πŸ™‚

    Beautiful, healing nature! A joy to see what you saw! πŸ™‚

    What was to eat?!
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

      1. anything over 5 I think they treat as worth watching/acting upon. My treatment involved sterilization, been sterile since January 2006, kind of got used to it now 😈
