He could always pull a Futhark Rune or a Tarot card on his own, if he's got any handy. Or an Ogham Rune, too, for that matter.

I met a man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today
I wish, I wish he'd go away...

Or he could just enjoy the beauty of his area without the need for hocus pocus. :)

Mongers, do you have a camera?

He left it in the car.

:D

Might as well, as bikes have destroyed two of my cameras; now anything vulnerable has to go in a messenger bag on my back.

Now that's it milder, managed to get out and do 20km up the valley yesterday, so nice to not have freezing hands and nads.

Off out to see how much mud is about following the heavy rain last night, and before it rains some more tonight and probably much of tomorrow.   :hmm:  :bowler:

Still too cold to bike here, too icy too  :(

Yeah that's a bummer, I'm sitting here thinking of weekend days out for the spring and summer and realising it'll be months before there's enough daylight to be able to do them.   <_<

Coming home at dusk a couple days ago, first a barn owl passed in front of me and then a heron, with the space of 30 seconds.

I think I saw the barn owl last week, so if it's hanging around it'll be the first time the meadows have had a resident owl for a fair few years. 

But this year very few swans around, maybe 3-4 on a two mile stretch of the river, most winters there's usually 3-4 dozen wintering here.  :hmm:

It was 40f today, but the streets still have snow.  By the time it all melts off there will be another snow storm.  No biking til April is the usual mantra here.

On the bus this morning, a young woman/student carrying cello(in a case) got on and sat next to me. A minute or two later in the radio play podcast I was listening to, a main character visits a friend and interrupts here cello practice. :blink:

Bit of an odd coincidence, I don't recall having sat next to someone who was transporting any sort of orchestral instrument.

Ouch, forgot how to jump off my bike and clipped my ankle sticky-out bone with a pedal.  :(
