Summer shows

By Nettles  
Well, this is a real mixed bag today.
We have fancy dress, a semi naked man, a motorbike stunt team and a gun dog doing a display.
Non of these are worthy of their own upload and are from various events and fairs that I went to last summer.

#1 is an RAF motorbike stunt team
#2 is a man who really should not be seen like this. "Does my gut look big in this" - YES
#3 is a gun dog doing a display of retrieving game. (No animals were hurt during this as the pigeon had been killed by a car before the show.
#4 is a man in fancy dress showing his very old bicycle.

Hope you enjoy this eclectic mix, there has got to be something for everybody here.

Hope you all have a super weekend, the sun is shining here so I'm off to Castle Howard before the rain starts later.

Thanks for your kind messages re the scan, it went quite well, so fingers crossed.

31 Mar 2008 2:27PM
I don't think that the Royal Artillery motor cycle team would be too impressed referring to them as RAF....
As for number 4, we never road bikes as modern as this in my day!!!! (PS he should really be on the carpet for not wearing his uniform correctly).

A splendid variety show Annette, the colours are wonderful in version 1. V2 made me laugh, I bet he has the Lynx factor and has to fight off the ladies with a stick! I like the village Bobby in v4, he's rather similar to the policemen i photographed at the Christmas Fayre in Worcester last year, is he about to caution you for taking pictures without people's permission! lol

Lots of interest here. With No 2, some people may be tempted to ask when the baby is due.
