Waiting their turn

Okay, last one from the Mapp and Lucia shoot. I call your attention to the little dog on the wagon. And the fact the man is checking his smart phone.

I’m only posting this stuff because I didn’t earlier, when it happened, and the news is just too depressing right now.

p.s. Except Ukip takes Clacton, a safe Tory seat. And, even more impressively, came within 600-something votes of taking a safe Labour seat! That’s pants-shittingly interesting politics, right there.

p.p.s. Have a good weekend!

Horse-drawn carts had pneumatic tyres in the 30’s.

Especially carts that carry the life-giving beer we must drink every day!

You shouldn’t have told us about the dog and had a ‘find the doggeh contest’ :+)

Have a nice weekend!

Nice. Clydesdales? Beautiful animals. Big suckers, too.

The descendants of war-horses, set to hauling beer. Oh dear.

Shire horses. Similar to Clydesdales but a little smaller. Gentle, patient animals — very expensive to keep. Need shoeing every six weeks. They were once very common work horses in this part of the world, still kept for mostly sentimental reasons. They turn up at ploughing matches and country fairs.

ISTR that Shires are the descendents of the big buggers that used to carry ye knyghtes in shyning armoure into battle.

No wonder they were bred to be passive, poor creatures.

My favorite kind of horses. In my other world I would have a barn-full of them, and treat them like pets. And little dogs. I do have hopes of getting a little dog, but no hopes of horses.

That’s not beer those Shires are pulling, it’s Harvey’s sherry.

@Weasy:Lucy Worsley had a nifty cameo on Shires…I doan recall which series…prolly her program on Dorothy Hartley:


btw- have you noticed how many new game releases have hit the market this week? Wowzer.

Today’s Moron Gaming thread is an embarrassment of riches.
