"All things share the same breath
- the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it
supports." - Chief Seattle
I wonder if that applies to a Cheshire Cat as well?
For the last year or so this one has been climbing a tree outside Avanti, one
of our favourite coffee shops in Heswall.Just by its tree is this work of ‘art’ (?), of which we have, as yet, not
found out the meaning.
Birkenhead & Liverpool
At the start of the month I spent a morning in Birkenhead.From the pier coffee shop there is a great
view of the Liverpool waterfront across the river.
The clock on the Royal Liver building is one of the largest in the
world.It has four faces – three on the
front tower of the 295’ high, seventeen storey, building and one on the back tower.Each face has a diameter of 25 feet.The minute hands are fourteen feet long and
each hand is 5 hundredweight in weight.
The Roman Catholic cathedral is visible across the Mersey.
As is the Anglican one.
The ferry T.S.M.V. Snowdrop(formerly
the Woodchurch) was built in 1959 and is the sister ship of the Royal Iris.
Only a few hundred yards from the Birkenhead pier head is Gallaghers, one of
the country’s most unusual pubs.
just a pub it is also a barber’s shop.
And more sport
Sorry but I can’t resist mentioning that Liverpool FC beat Manchester United
3-0 at Old Trafford.No wonder Steven
Gerrard kissed the camera!

I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
