Swallow (Harbour Road, Lydney)

The Swallow is a beauty, every year it comes to lay her eggs, why here? Well, because we love them.





This piece of music comes in three parts: Woodie Guthrie  ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyUagbsg-HI ) second  is: Ry Cooder ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4KmbUCwkyE ) the third is: Nazareth ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0Ol8Xa788o ) I know what my favourite is.

  3. You've caught the Swallow in some great poses their Bob, it's a shame they have to perch on such unsightly objects though :-)

  5. Hi Bob...You got some real good ones, especially like the open beck one!!
    Now to the music..lol
    I had a listen to them all, singing Vigilante Man...even through in a little Bruce Springsteen, ; }}
    Close call.. I think Ry Cooder first for me....Nazareth second...Woodie Guthrie last, but I do like Woodie usually....Springsteen did'nt do it any justice!!

  11. Excellent shots, bob! If we have swallows here I've never seen one. I'll have to ask THE BOSS to look it up in her copy of Peterson's. I'm not allowed to play with her books.

  13. Excellent photos Bob. I'll personally be very sad when the Swallows start to leave again as they are cracking birds.

  15. Boaa noitee...Não permita que alguém venha lhe roubar os seus sonhos.Este mundo está repleto de pessoas que terão um imenso prazer de lhe falar que os seus sonhos nunca poderão se concretizar.Elas irão lhe zombar porque você tem demonstrado uma ousadia e determinação de sonhar grandes sonhos. As pessoas poderão questionar a sua insanidade mental simplesmente porque você está determinado a alcançar os seus alvos. Não ignore essas pessoas, mas – decididamente – ignore as convicções delas.Lute pelos seus sonhos!!! e vença … e seja feliz!
    Deus lhe abençoe muito neste dia!Uma semana lindaaa com muita paz bj!
