    I saw a vanity plate that said ‘YAAAAY’

    The old cliche about more money than sense is quite true, where you think what these pieces of metal cost and what the chances are of being able to sell it on.

      That one will sell if the owner wants to put it on the market eventually. There are still dozens of happy people in NZ.

        Dozens of stupid ones, too, if the witless plates are anything to go by. It’s hardly fascinating to know that it’s DEBZKA or MUMZKA. There are variations on the word bitch, so people must believe that it pays to advertise.

      What’s happening on the animal front up your way at The Cottage?

      Pookden Manor stream has been awash with eel people today. No sign of Granville Shortfin today but Elvira came up for a beg and a feed this morning, and another member of the Shortfin family also showed up and got fed when Elvira left heading downstream for home again.

      I’ve just come up not long ago from feeding this 2nd 2 and a half foot long Shortfin – and it was joined by a 2 foot long one, and then a baby one only about a foot long. They don’t exactly all get along together though, not at feed time anyway. I’ll have to name them because they’re regulars now.

      The pooks have all had several feeds. Bluey’s gone off to sit on the nest, & Sweety’s pottering around on the back lawn. She followed me up from the Eel Spot to get extras. Your godpook Alex is settling down and not whining so much any more. He has begun to come to the fence for a feed on his own now, losing his anxiety. His wings are looking great, he’s still practising takeoffs running along the stream shallows.

        Where’s Eli ? How about Eliza ?

        I remember dreaming that I did what Alex is doing and it working, so I tried it in real life.

        Not much here, I think there’s a fantail nest. (hope, hope) otherwise it’s the same residents doing the same things.

        It’s blimmin hot.
