Einstein! ... I Saw Sunday - Week 9



A random assortment of things seen
this week for  I Saw Sunday

here are mine ...



Grace getting well and truly buffeted on our walks this week with the crazy windy weather we've been having. I really wanted to get a full front shot of her head with the wind behind her, because I swear, if you catch her at just the right angle with her face fur on end ... she looks remarkably like Albert Einstein!

and

A picture of Grace when the wind dropped with her face fur the right way ... looking a little fed up about having her picture taken again!!

and


Another walk related thing ... people must think all I do is walk all week!  Anyway, we had to do an abrupt u-turn on Friday because we spotted the boisterous doberman, I could see Grace stiffening so we legged it pretty sharpish down to the little lake where we came across a wonderful old red setter who Grace took to immediately and they spent a good five minutes together smiling and sniffing with their tails in full wag.

and

Whilst having stopped at some traffic lights by a row of houses, I looked up to their roofs and it was clear which one hadn't any loft insulation as it was the only one full of pigeons,  it was a freezing cold day and I couldn't help but smile at the thought of them with their little feet all nice and toastie.

and

A traffic tail back of about eight cars behind two little whited haired old ladies driving at about 25mph on a 40mph road, as I passed by on the other side I could see them both grinning,  they were either happily oblivious ... or fully aware and finding it highly amusing!

and lastly

Two swans at the lake taking off about a foot from me and flying over my head ... absolutely breathtaking!!

I can vouch for dear Grace looking like Einstein! lol

I loved the little old ladies in the car, it made me smile. (I can imagine that could be us in 40 years, you driving of course. :-))

Wow, I bet the swans taking off so close would have been amazing! They are such big powerful birds.

I loved sharing your week! :-)

Love that expression on Grace's face. I once had a tri-color collie who would immediately lie down and put both paws over his face if I reached for a camera, lol. Did get a few and that same expression is on most of them.

The swans sound beautiful and I love your thoughts about the pidgeons and their toasty little feet.


Thanks for sharing your week,

Elizabeth
