Summing up our Holiday.

Towns in Devon and Cornwall are perhaps a little old, time has cost them some of there beauty and perhaps more their innocents. The years have done much the same to me, now that I think about it.

Autumn Watch, a television program about animals and birds and how they behave in the autumn, now graces our evening viewing. The cold nights are creeping in, while in the nearby forest the dear are rutting and the low sun graces the horizon. Birds are migrating to warmer places, quite amazing that the little swallow flies all the way to Capetown, leaving us with the robin, seagulls and those black crows. 
Badgers and foxes roam the night fields with the dear and the largest, most dangerous animal in the UK, the cow, munching the rich autumn grass. This is the time that the brackets and fungi bloom, through the morning mist. Terry Pratchet once said that all fungi are edible, some only once. They say that when Autumn Watch is over, it lasts 4 days, it is the start of winter. As I said in my last blog, the evenings are turning colder and the sun sets early.

Susan is travelling again, as you can see by the photos she has condescended to upload. To be fair she is quite busy and the lazy locals do not help. we asked for a photograph of her office and this is what she sent!
Susan office in Dubai
Susan is the only person I know that will exclaim an 'ooh' and make it sound like a national emergency.
From Dubai she moves on to Japan, another project for Merlin is in the making. Not sure if I am allowed to say what it is, so will err on the side of caution until the announcement are made. I know you are asking, does it entail little plastics block?
I would imagine that it will in some form, not sure how Japanese blocks work but I would imagine they all fit in the same way.,
Someone said it was less than 2 months to Christmas, seems too close but then time seems to march on at an ever increasing pace as one gets older. What to buy for Christmas? I have Susan sorted and Robert will be getting a flight home for 4 weeks. It is all the children I worry about. Will think on this small challenge and get back to you.

Well that's all for now, till anon.
