Above are two metal ornaments from a local collectable shop. We had a bird rather like this, and the welding came apart after a while. I do think though that we left the head of the bird on a fence when we moved home some years ago!
An unusual view of my favourite cat asleep on my lap! Tabitha is not ours, but visits us most days, for love, we do not give her any food at all!

Above some old hi fi equipment in a cafe in Bermuda. I no longer have a cassette deck, that broke a few months ago. I had to get rid of my tape recorder about 10 years ago. Amazing now that you can get music out of a mobile or tablet! Still great to remember the days of hi fi.
I was surprised to see that a museum we visited still had an old pc monitor in use. Nobody wants these now, and you have to pay to get them disposed of – sad!
