Fun And Punting With Geeks!

Much fun was had today at PuncCon – a bunch of geeks get together every year, hire punts on the River Cam in Cambridge and mosey down to Grantchester Meadows for a big picnic. We thought bringing along my big duck, Shifty to tow behind our punt would be a good idea. And it was!

Shifty enjoyed himself on the bank as well as on the water.

Someone gave Shifty too much Pimm’s, and so he was weaving all over the place trying to swim behind our punt.

Finally we reached Grantchester Meadows and enjoyed our picnic on the grass, along with Mr Duck, Seedy, Sunny and Strawby.

Twenty 20

20 Candles And Two Uglies

I thought Twenty 20 was something to do with Cricket, but apparently not.

My photo club has an exhibition scheduled in the local library and we have been asked to put together several panels of pictures on a theme, one of which is 20 – to mark the anniversary of the library.

Jeero and Wedgehead were very brave holding up two glowing candles on their heads.

I also managed to round up 20 Domos to help out with their picture – quite a feat – have you ever tried wrangling just half a dozen of these headstrong fellows, never mind 20?!
