When aliens come calling!

By Kaxxie
Hello everyone

This was taken on Mother’s Day weekend just before our first lockdown in March 2020. It’s my son and daughter-in-law. Thames Water were working in the road and I noticed one of the guys looking towards my house laughing. I wondered what was so funny. Then my doorbell rang and I knew why he had been laughing. No doubt Gary and Clare had been having great fun dressing up. Gary used to be a Trekkie when he was younger and took great delight in going the live long and prosper sign. That caused me great embarrassment when he was standing poolside during his swimming lessons at around 7yrs old. It really looked like he was making a different sign!

I tried to make them look like aliens in the lead but to be honest they resemble aliens in the version too! 😉😉😉

Thank you all for your votes and comments on yesterday’s image and Rich for your UA. They’re all really appreciated.

Take care everyone

I think they knocked on my door, then phoned and offered to fix my computer.

Good fun.

Live long and prosper. I see on the CBC that William Shatner is now 90 and still making movies. Leonard Nimoy died 5 or 6 years ago ... has it been that long since the star ship Enterprise boldly went where no man had gone before.

Dammit, Jim. I'm just a doctor!
I loved Scott. "I canna do it, Ca'tain."

I wish they'd get around a perfect that beaming up business. It would beat the heck out fo flying Air Canada. (The donkey cart of the skies,)
