Don't really know Rosa why I LIKE this photo. It's a higgledy-piggledy sort of scene with lots of little part things in it but nothing outstanding, if you see what I mean - hard to explain. Would make a difficult jigsaw puzzle. Regards Ray
All three are far to quaint Rosa. Not even double yellow lines to ruin it.
Maybe it's the pub sign Ray :) Higgledy-piggledy it certainly is! I don't think there would be much chance of escaping in the snow here...very hilly! Regards, Rosa.
Well, that's Dorset for you KC :)
Hello, me again, Powerstock is the name of the village I suppose. Greets Jos
Now Rosa I never mentioned anything about pubs just incase you thought I was getting at you again about your apparent love of them !! It is different though, rather modern sign I would say. No I was talking about the general scene being a bit H-P in a cute funny sort of way. Will you being going to the Great Dorset Rally this week ? if so shall expect to see some pics of it. Ray
I thought you meant how did it get the name! Which I have answered on the other picture! I understand now what you were asking...yes Powerstock is the village name :) Cheers, Rosa.
Would I ever think such a thing :) What does H-P mean? I was in two minds whether to upload this shot as it only really shows roofs and chimneys, but I suppose I must have seen something I liked about it as well! I'm not going to the Dorset Steam Rally. It's the biggest in Europe and quite honestly too big for me. I last went about 5 years ago, so sorry no pic's! All the best, Rosa.
H-P just short for higgledy-piggledy Rosa. Re Nessie - could be son, surprised that great imagination of yours suddenly gone blank ! regards Ray
I remember trying to get to a wedding in Bridport. I had plenty of time so I decided to take a scenic route. And promptly got lost in Dorset's beautiful lanes. I remember asking to use the telephone here. Before satnav or even mobile phones of any sort.
And it really does seem like it was yesterday
Dorset steam rally? Hmmmmmm. Not my favourite at all. I lost an important client because I was 2 hours late for a meeting in Bournemouth as I got stuck in the middle of the procession to, or from, (I don't give a monkey's which!) the Blandford Forum showground. There is nothing. Absolutely nothing, quite so frustrating as simply being stuck in the middle of a convoy of traction engines.
Lovely shot by the way and I like the higgledy-piggledyness of it!
Aha H-P I see it now! I think my whole mind went blank :) Regards, Rosa.
Hi Andy, that sounds like panic time! I doubt you'd have got a mobile signal anyway. On the route I took I kept thinking the road was going to run out, with the grass growing in the middle of it! When the steam rally is on it's best to give the road between Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum a miss!! Glad you like the higgledy-piggledy picture...Good description by Ray! Best wishes, Rosa.
Grüße für Rosa und Like für den Foto ,Wunderschön
Had to smile at Andy's comments, I guess he won't be going to the Dorset Steam Fair either !! In more general terms, it also reminded me of something that always amuses me of how fickle people are. Some get stuck daily in traffic jams to & from work, or for hours by a accident, and accept it as part & parcel of life. But when it's non car traffic, e.g tractors, farm livestock, horses etc then the whinging starts.
Good to see you back. Thank you for your like. Greetings, Rosa.
Ha ha, no...no pictures from Andy! . I'm sure we will find some from someone on Pano' though :) Yes, you're probably right re: traffic. Where you and I live, we are very used to it all through the hay making times etc.
If there is any king of steam fair in or around Madrid I will make a point of posting tjhe pics. AND I won't moan about the traffic jam either!
Is that likely Andy! Steam and the heat you get over there don't really mix. What is the traffic situation like in Madrid? You're allowed a little moan :)
Happy Sunday. Rosa.
The question that comes to mind is...why Three Horseshoes and not Four?
Good question Peter!! Unfortunately I haven't the answer...but I expect in days of the horse, if one lost a shoe it's rider would stop at the pub for a swift pint and find a farrier :)
