dog knotwork

Things Seen this Weekend

1) a flaming VW camper van, well alight in the middle lane of the M5 motorway.  With an enormous queue of cars wondering how to get past it, and two sad-faced people standing on the verge, watching gloomily as their holiday went up in smoke.

2) A madman in a car, dodging at at least 90mph up the busy motorway in a series of maniac under and overtakings of the kind you normally only see in movies.

3) A great cackling crowd of geese flying overhead, not in the purposeful manner that geese have when they are on their way somewhere long distance, but swooping and playing and shrieking and barging joyfully, somehow reminiscent of dolphins.
