No. Dark humour really.

I first heard it when a friend said something like "... I remember on the day when we planted me mum..."

:D
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Here are a few that I took on a quick trip over to East Sussex with a couple of friends;

The village of Alfriston and its Church. Unfortunately, there were cars parked around the green which spoiled the view.

The view from Hindover Hill (aka 'High & Over' to the locals). We were standing above the 'White Horse' carved into the chalk.
Image

Image

Image

A panoramic of the view. The White chalk makes up the horse's head and was the only part of the hill carving that could be seen from where I was.
Image

We visited Cuckmere Have with the idea of photographing the old Coastguard Cottages with the cliffs as a backdrop. Unfortunately, they were having their roofs repaired so we were unable to take the traditional and iconic scenic photos of the cliffs and Haven.

Ah right, I have heard that before. Why is the little figurine being planted then?

My favourite photo is the road with the white cliffs in the background.

BTW, I'm quite obviously not looking at the Dover cliffs so looked up Cuckmere Haven. I learn something new every day :) ;) .

Did you go in the church Penners? There are a really interesting set of stained glass windows, two of which I photographed when I was there

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Nice windows Mad, do you think that's where Pterry got his idea for the short story title The Sea and Little Fishes from. ;) :lol:

I did go in the church but the pics didn't turn out too well (I was a bit hurried as my friends aren't really into that sort of thing). I do love old churches though. :D

We were replacing the shingles on a shed yesterday.

We discovered some rot:

..which was infested with ants!

..but We repaired the damage and got it finished!

(BTW, that's our friend, not me, and wifey)

(well, mostly; we did some final touches today :))

I like them, but they have quite a forbidding look to them. the metropolis vibe is about right, you certainly wouldn't want to work in a factory with one of those outside. the third one is my favorite.

Mine too.

Nice job on the shed Con.
