I visited an old demolition friend of mine yesterday and noticed this nailed to his back garden gate. He has completely forgotten where he got it from. Has anyone seen one of these before and what does it signify? It is made of bronze or brass and is not distorted as my phone photo shows. Cheers

We didn't expect to see this little Freddo Frog in the back garden today, taking a dip in the bird bath, well it was a hot day. Isn't he just perfect?

Apparently it is becoming quite common for parish councils, local authorities, etc. to convert telephone kiosks into libraries. This in South Bar, Banbury, was slightly different as the original kiosk (left), which had been converted, was restored to a payphone and an additional kiosk obtained to be used as a library Thumbs up

I don't know why, but, as with Lyme Regis a couple of years ago, whenever I'm near the sea, I see something that makes me think of NormK Wink
