The Ducking Stool

By cooky
Boris will be taking to his feet at mid-day and no doubt will have some well prepared excuses at the ready...

Just in case they don't wash, I found this little treasure!

Taken on the same walk as yesterday's image - thank you all for your lovely response to the icy footprints and messages have been sent.

Obviously children will be children and what fun to swing across a canal! No doubt some of you scamps would be on that swing in a heartbeat!

Thank you Andy and Fred.

Knew you'd be in there Andy! Obviously not as a ducking stool!

What a great use for the swing, Kath it should certainly be deployed as punishment for deception...

But, of course, with the pending war on our hands, he'll survive because it's not a good time to have a change of leader.
I think he's made a pact with Putin. (Ras-Putin) Wink

Thank you John and Bert. He has the luck of the devil John and if he fell off the Coop he would land in the Divvy! (Translations are available for non Northeners!)

No Bert - can't party on that swing it was minus silly degrees! Wait until it warms up!

I like this one Kath. Obviously the swing takes centre stage but the lighting of your conversion works a treat.

Oh what fun, Kath. I tried this antic on a wide stream in wales years ago and ended up over the water, not on either bank! 😀 it was still good fun. Hope this one gets enjoyed, it looks a fine location.

Oh yes, Kath! Don't think I'd risk swinging on it over icy cold water though! 😬 A fine shot, must be viewed large 😃👍🏻

Great capture, I'd like to see him on that seat, I don't think he would fit on it, or last long before being ducked or better still ditched!

At the risk of being a spoil sport.....Can I stay on the bank and give a push?
26 Jan 2022 4:25PM
Lovely image Kath. I think if Boris were to sit on that seat a lot of people would want to push him……off! 😉

Thank you for taking the time to leave such great comments. Also all you lovely folk who have left your precious awards. I'll message you all.

Boris escaped again but that means we get longer to play on the swing! It's Saddleworth Dave, they think they're posh!
