Friday’s Hunt v1.8 -- "H" is for ...
I can tell by this picture that it was taken before being fertilized. Now it is a luscious green and more bushy.
Into the barn
each knows her stall
Brownie comes last
she's boss of all
The pigs come too
crowding their trough
Roosters don't come
'til lights go off
I'm not a cow
pig or goat's gruff
Still I come when-
ever you call
. - The animal pictures were taken at the Vauxhall City Farm, at Vauxhall, Borough of Lambeth, London, U.K. (visit it here). Oh, yes, the top picture is on of the horses coming in from giving rides all day. The cows weren't receptive to picture taking. The resting Ducks were at a canal near Northampton.
. - We took KP to the farm, she loved it. A little scared of the geese, but even some adults are afraid of that. If you visit London with young ones, take them there. Also zoo at Regent's Park is very nice. Admittance is free, both places.

Lovers always, the Jim's ~~ Warm Heart Wednesday No. 014
Next Wednesday, the 24th, Mrs. Jim and I will have been married 43 years. We celebrated early (as is this post) by taking a Caribbean cruise out of the Port of Houston. Our primary goal besides celebrating was to go to the Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman our target.
It was Heart Warming to say the least. Neither of us are Spring Chickens anymore. The twosome picture was taken by one of our passenger mates on the Princess Caribbean ship. He spent his entire day on Seven Mile Beach and had brought his own beer. I am glad the camera focused even though it was focused on something pretty far out, not us.
What will follow is a bunch of pictures from our cruise. Another time, perhaps on a Friday, more Cayman Island and other items will crop up. My favorite is of Mrs. Jim holding a VERY LARGE stingray fish. (We did take this cruise last year also, the price is fairly reasonable because there is no Airfare involved. We drove the 50 miles after Sunday school, leaving January 31 and returning on February 7.)
