An image which I captured a couple of weeks ago now which I thought would make a rather satirical Silly Sunday submission.

Thank you all so very much for your most appreciated comments and votes following yesterdays upload 'De Fence' with a further mention going to Chillman(Andrew) and nonur (Nezih) for presenting me with their User Awards.

The sun is shining here in the SouthEast at the moment so a little stroll with Julie and Kizmet may be on the cards.

I sincerely hope that you all have a wonderful day.

Regards Nathan

I know of a mechanic in London who posts on the Land Rover forum I frequent, who has manufactured a false one which he uses to 'clamp' his own vehicle in order to prevent being done by the real thing. Apparently it fools the clampers into believing he's already been caught.Grin
