is at the end of my Rocking Friday post.

It's the day for my Friday Rocking post
so here I go:
I'm going to whisper the first one -
the sun's out and,
just for once, it isn't raining.
I'm VERY grateful for that!
Coffee and a charity shop mooch with
my funny friend Louise.
Coffee, giggles and bargains, perfect.
Zumba was such a laugh last night.
As hard going as I found doing it,
the Zumba teacher (who is great fun)
did it wearing surgical stockings
having had surgery last week.
That must have been doubly difficult!
I enjoyed spending an evening hand carving
some 'rubber' stamps, using cheap erasers.
These are my first attempt,
so they're VERY basic
but I kinda like the naive folk art
look to them. I will be making some more
and hopefully getting better......
Grant got a few cuts and bruises
when he was out with me for a coffee yesterday (!).
He assisted a lone police officer in the arrest
of a violent individual, and ended up with
a few injuries for his trouble.
I'm very proud of Grant for helping out a
colleague when he was off duty
and I'm grateful he didn't receive worse injuries.
The young pc who he assisted came here today
for a statement and he was very grateful
for Grant's help.
After this roll around on the ground,
Grant went up to London to take part
in the organised march protesting against
the Government cutbacks.
While I'm not grateful for the Government
measures which will have an effect both on
us and the general public, I am grateful
that in this country we have freedom
of speech and are allowed to protest
without fear of reprisals or violence.
Finally, sad news about Lovely-Dovey.
On Monday Hope and I popped out for an hour.
As we left we saw that LD was on her nest,
but nearby 3 other doves were sat in a tree.
This is unusual.
When we got back LD was wandering around
on the ground looking flustered.
Her egg had gone, just a smear of yolk in
the nest and a tiny piece of shell was all that remained.
Lovey Dovey has since gone and we miss her.
Ok, I'll pop along to leave this post's link
with Virginia now.
You know you can join in too, don't you?

Darcy's Postcard Challenge
this week is
I know absolutely
about this country.
In fact all I could think of was
Uncle Bulgaria from
So I went onto good ol'
Google and ended up
researching Vasil Levsky,
the Bulgarian revolutionary.
Levsky, who fought to free Bulgaria from
the Turkish government (Ottoman rule),
was executed in 1873.
He subsequently became known as
the Apostle of Freedom.
Thank you for the safe
return of 'The Scream'.
I was surprised at
this course of action
I am in Bulgaria
studying the revolut-
ionary Vasil Levsky.
I have discovered that
you are a descendent
of this brave man.
Maybe you could direct
your energies into something
more worthwhile than theft.
