What are these...

...taken on Friday late evening from my back garden?

I'm off to visit three of my five (and one on the way) grandchildren this afternoon, so won't be able to post your answers until later.

Aliens, definitely.

Councillor Paul Farmer said...

Good spelling David and good imagination p'smum. No prizes yet then.

Returned exhausted from entertaining grandchildren.

david said...

All 'Local Hero' fans can spell it.

We have an injured rabbit also.

Have or had an injured rabbit macintyre...

where did I leave my watch.....

paul was it raining on friday?? . Or dust specs on the lens maybe. Remember UFO dont exist according to our friends in amercia.

PS like the new site, much better, ever considered commissioning ruby to give you additional advice..... BFP letters not so sure.

david said...

Colin - thank you for calling Knox Oil & Gas.

The rabbit was later killed by Gordon Urquhart.

Cllr. Paul Hopfensperger said...

Could be the Town Council's web site going up in flames 'cause it 'aint there any more!

David
How many grains of sand did you think you held in your hands....

Paul
They could be stars, or space junk, or even communication devices ,but wait until the rain goes away and we might see some more?

david said...

Colin - a post about BFP letters is dependent on the quality and range of the contributions Barry Peters receives in any one week.

It might become very interesting if the blog editor had a letter published himself, or was criticised for some minor offence like hiding all the clocks, or riding a bicycle while under the influence of Horlicks.

I think it is a reflection on a pond and all the blobs are the tiny little insects floating on the top.

Councillor Paul Farmer said...

I suppose 21st CM is closer than others. I'll leave it until my next post to reveal all.

colin said...

Is it not about time the Bummer had a blog section of its own ? Its own blog master, or is this a 21st century idea, it could be sindicated an existing set of local bloggers. Livinginburyst edmunds and 21stcentury come to mind.

of course it could not be political ( that counts you chaps out) but it could benefit from the Ruby treatment.

will they pay to attract new readers we ask ?

Has Barry the grit to take the step. or will he leave it to paul to debate his own letters page. .......

I have it! It is the confetti coming down from the airbus sent over the town to celebrate Ruby's 50k visitor........

What sort of entertaining did you have to do that exhausted you so much???

Councillor Paul Farmer said...

As I shall be posting about my Cattle Market walkabout tomorrow, I have dcided not to keep you in suspense any longer.

It was simply a swarm of large aphids.

Anon (from that educational establishment in the south?) - at my age one tires easily.

21st Century Mummy said...

Blimey, those must have been really large aphids. Think they've eaten a bit too much!

david said...

Paul - sorry, you're wrong. It's the aurora borealis. I told you that ages ago.
