LAZY SUNDAY AFTERNOON

What to do in the lsle Of Man on a sunny spring day? As little as possible.

Spirng flowers are budding and blooming. The baby birds are exploring a world beyond the nest. Luckily for me that tends to be my back garden. This baby blackbird sat perched on this branch for quite some time. Obviously having no human contact before, he has no sense of fear. Soon, unfortunately, he will learn that not all humans can be trusted, and I won't have an opportunity like this again for quite some time. Not with this one anyway.

No Manx history lesson today. It's sunday, will shall take a break. We like to take our sundays at a leisurely pace here. The Manx for good evening is "Fastyr Mie," and that's what I wish you tonight.

Hello Babooshka. I am very suspicious of the link above. It sounds like malware to me, and I would encourage you to delete it.

That is a lovely picture, yet again Babooshka. (I am getting good at spelling your name without looking it up.)

Hello Babooshka.
First, thanks for your visit to my blog, and the opportunity to find yours.
Next - what to do on a sunny spring day .... start the day by doing nothing then slow down during the afternoon. ;-)
Lastly - the first link is a spam link. I get those quite often, and just delete them.
