Passage of time

Well Tony has gone then. I had to laugh at him at the station, heading for the top of the range BMW assuming it was his lift, only to be told his was the Vaxhaull! The limo is the first thing they all miss.

Apparently the Daily Star is leading on a different Big Brother bust up, so they cover the story thus:

Tony left
Gordon arrived
blah, blah,blah -

Couldn't have put it better myself. Meanwhile in the real world another three British soldiers are dead as well as countless more Iraqis.

I took these poppies in a window in the weather. There's a complete field of them outside one of the villages.

Poppies are always poignant. the colour's not quite like any other flower.

Yes, I agree with Lucy.
We'd know at once exactly what was meant by" poppy red", wouldn't we?
I think it very moving that you mentioned the soldiers, the Iraqis, then we saw your lovely poppies..

Yes they are very poignant aren't they. Like Burns says, "you seize the flower its bloom is shed"
Fleeting like these poor young men, who mostly come from unemployment blacksopts..

Poppies will always be associated with soldiers dying too young ... nature a symbol for life in all its tendernesses and bitter ironies.
A beaut photo.
ABM and I saw the Tony and Gordon switch on our news and commented how it's a shame he will always be remembered for being Bush's lap dog.
(The BMW and Vauxhall episode made me smile!)

That is so beautiful. Like the poppies 'they shall not grow old.'
At least Mrs Brown has to be an improvement on Mrs Blair.
