71 Reg near miss :?:

Nothing quite as German as a Rolls Royce Motor Car although it keeps a few folk busy at Goodwood and Bognor Regis

Shame they are such ugly beasts now, none of their former elegance.

Brutalski!

BMW have Rolls Royce, Volkswagen have Bentley.
Its not really surprising that they churn out two of the worst, one each

Prime examples of serious ugliness. I'm sure they are very nice to drive and come with free umbrellas but they are almost as ugly as Cadillacs and other 'things' from that part of the world.

And 'Bentayga'. A ridiculous name that is very apt on that thing.

Many parts of the world are becoming quite ugly, in-your-face aggressive 'wealth', and RR and B seem to want to be part of that. Their customer base is doing rather nicely, thank you.

Failed miserably POD.
Walked to the shop in the next village and on the way saw loads of elderberries, blackberries, sloe berries and what looked like bilberries but on a bush.
The phone won't download them as there is too much stuff stored.
The only stuff stored are the 14 photos.

Berry watch. The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is pretty much upon us. The bonny purple heather is now pretty brown for the most part now.
Blackberry week will soon be here.<br />Does anyone still or ever did refer to the Autumn half-term holiday as blackberry week?

I was going to do a re-run of yesterday to photo the berries with a proper camera. Only managed half a mile and had to return home :(

Proper food. St Boswells Rugby Club car park.

Kelso has a shop which sells stovies which I have never arrived at in time to get any other reply than "none left".

I do love a stovie, my mate Andy from Dundee used to do them for us to accompany our Guy Fawkes night burgers!! Brilliant especially if made with red onions :-D
