More oddities

This one didn’t half give me a fright. cruising along, minding my own business, down a quiet stretch of the canal when this suddenly appeared, and I mean suddenly, just in front of the boat.

A bucket full of water

A bucket full of water

I think he was watering his farm, or cows!

Back for another

Back for another

This “guy” and his dog seemed to have stopped for a long rest.

He's been slumbering there for weeks

He’s been slumbering there for weeks

Finally, I opened the solid fuel stove to clean it out, and this “wasp” dropped out onto the grate!

Yes, it really was that big

Yes, it really was that big

This silly doggerel came to mind.

Two four six eight who do I appreciate?

The twos are varied some are fun

Most are cheery, few are glum.

Fours are friends along the miles,

But tend to leave their little piles.

Some sixes sting it seems their duty,

Others show their painted beauty.

The eights abide in every nook

At least they bring the flies to book.

Two four six eight who do I appreciate?

Folk, pets, bugs and spider, friendliness is the decider.

All the best, Tenlegbeezer
