Following the recent spate of blog tagging, here are four random facts about our Sunday morning walk.
The first surprise was that our local zebra crossing and all the associated white lining had been refreshed. It was still a bit wet so I wonder if it had been done overnight or early this morning. The SEBC Engineering section jokingly liken the road lining contractors to the yeti, but they were obviously in action today. Mind you, they stopped short of the Southgate Green roundabout's hatching, which is in my ward, and badly needs doing.
I wonder if all this was set in motion by my nice LibDem borough councillors. If so you can rely on my county councillor (a real Bury boy and gentleman, whose ancestors contain more local mayors than the town council has even had) not publicly claiming his part in the success.
The next picture was to have been the rabbit's head we cycled past in Fox & Pin Lane. A stark reminder of the not-so-pretty countryside. I couldn't take it, never mind post it. Fortunately I was soon diverted by the moon.
This piece of farm machinery was left by a footpath a couple of years ago. Presumably it will remain there rusting away for ever.
So that's our exercise for today, but it's not doing the trick says Mrs F. France, Italy and birthdays are catching up on us, so its the Atkins diet for next week - for me too.
