A Hiatus, Some Clouds, And A Prize-Winning Beauty


It is days since I posted to the blog and days since I was able to get around and visit all my favourite blogs. There is no single reason for this unfortunate hiatus, but just as a million insignificant water droplets can bind together to form a cloud of almost impenetrable solidity, minor events seem to have been stacking up in my world and detaching me from my routine. The clouds should lift later this week. I will return. In the meantime here is a picture I took of one of the prize-winning beauties at last weeks' Halifax Agricultural Show.

  4. Some comment about the eye of the beholder springs to mind, not being a farming man.

  8. This is a fantastic shot, Alan. Cows are just so sweet, aren't they? The dawg days of summer are a good time for a hiatus. Enjoy.
