Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 17th December, 2017)
Photo: David (Canon SX200)
Good photo, but isn't this the same tree we saw on DEC 4TH. Maybe from the opposite direction though.
Just add a bit of glitter and you have a Christmas card.lovely
In the Bleak Midwinter.
Its beginning to look like Christmas!
"Lovely" photo David.
I like lone trees,this is a different tree Derek,and another place.
Brrr I need more coal on my fire, and have a drop of sherry.
Well done, David.
Shove up Garry then we can all get near!
No problem Veronica, I'll get more sherry and glasses out ready.
Garry i envy your coal fire but not to make it on a cold morning...and the sherry Aaaahhhhh not for me, i wont be coming round.
I'll have Alan's Sherry, Garry! And that Veronica's hoggin' all t'fire!!
We used to take it in turns 'poking' the fire and didn't toast taste good - done in front of a roaring fire? I know you had to fight to get a good place little-friend - Irene. I had my own stool in the corner and my legs stretched out over the fender. The draft coming from under the kitchen door was horrendous. My dad's Army overcoat managed to stop it a little bit rolled up on the floor. Happy days????????
Best get some Horlicks in Garry in case Howard decides to turn up.
Yes, they WERE happy days, draughts and all! Our Army Overcoat went on the bed when it had done its stint as draught excluder!
I remember pubs having coal-fires in Winter, use to be so cosy drinking my Gill of bitter in front of a roaring fire. A great atmosphere.
Irene, Alan's Sherry is all yours. Veronica, I have toast done on my coal fire almost every morning and night, and you're right it has a taste like no other. There's a certain thrill watching TV with no lights on in front of roaring coal fire. All the best.
Thumbs up to coal fires this Christmas, although I have gas central heating.
Nice Winter shot David.
Why do some like to live in the past ??????
Alan we aren't living in the past - we just like to reminisce. We are sharing the good and the bad times. It was tough in the fifties after the war and it makes us appreciate what we do have in a materialistic sense.. I don't think we live in a better place now with all that we do have .....Well that's my opinion.
Why do some like to use six question marks when one will suffice?
Ozy leave Howard on Album ...'supposing' it's snowed in Haigh'!!! We don't want him 'supposing' in front of Garry's roaring fire!
Some of us like to think back to the past, Alan. We DON'T "live there"...we just like to go back for a little while but we don't expect anyone to go with us should they be content with the present. I myself am happy in the present, without the draughts and the ice on the inside of bedroom windows, but it is only because of those things that I appreciate the comforts I have now, and in that they deserve to be remembered.
Well said Irene Roberts. I love reading and reminiscing about the past, but I don't live there. Garry is really lucky to toast on his fire, without any electric lights. Your imagination can run wild with the smell and the taste not living in the past at all! I am eating it with you Garry, and sat with Veronica enjoying a sherry.
I'm happy the way I heat my house by coal, the past is gone but not forgotten. Remember if there's a power cut it won't both me that much. Everyone to their own.
It's almost 3am and just finished off my bottle of sherry in front of my lovely fire. cheers.
Titus - all the best and remember me to Carol!
