Our son Nathan sending the ball away for four runs in a cricket match at Worcester. This afternoon he will be playing for the under 19 side at Montagu - a challenge for him as he is only 15 years old Smile
Today I am back at school again, so I do not know if I will be able to visit much on epz Smile
Thanx to all who commented and voted on the chickens , and especially also to Lavina for her UA on my strawberry Smile
Have a super day

Someone earlier asked for an explanation of Cricket:

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

wonderful timing..he must be good if he's in the team at that age....he also look quite powerful for a 15yr old...I learnt (a little too late for me) that you need to have very strong upper arms/chest muscles to play professional cricket/hockey/football...tell him to take up weight training (if he doesn't already)...it will stand him in good stead.

The background is too sharp for my liking, including the bucket of cleaning materials. Caught the moment well but not isolating the subject from the background has really detracted from the overall image quality.
