Saturday and waiting for the paper

Which gets delivered by the milkman, with real glass bottles! So not much to write about but noticed this blog of 2008 has come up, so tidying it up and making the photos larger, part is about the great Lansdown Battle between the Roundheads and the Royalists that took place on this edge of Bath overlooking in the distance Bristol.... 

The Valley of the Black Pig by Yeats

This is Prince Rupert and his poodle called Boye, probably coming from Bristol through Bath if I remember rightly, aren't they poncy?  He became the senior Royalist general, but retired after the defeat of Bristol.


  1. You are lucky to have both a milkman and somebody to deliver the papers. Here the farmer has to go into Leyburn and collect the papers every morning at 7am - and I buy the milk in the local shop.

  2. Trouble is we can't get our order right, have ended up with loads of milk in the fridge, but it is a welcome service....
