More than a Knight’s Sword Distance

Trying something new here, this is a little video of me doing a recent drawing.
I hope everyone out there is fit and well and keeping their distance so that they stay that way.

If this does not work please bear with me as I’m on a bit of a learning curve and have just gone into the first bend.

All the best.

Not going out.

“Keep Calm and Carry on” and other such very British slogans have been popular. Some like: ” I’m going out, I may be a while”, famous last tight lipped words of Captain Oats on the ill fated but oddly glorious expedition to Antarctic is another. It’s a phrase I used to use when heading off to the supermarket to buy too much of something that we already had. No more of that then.

” Where on earth have you been?” after a football or rugby match when it was perfectly obvious from the circling beer fumes, is not in this lexicon, but it’s in mine. The usual muttered inaudible excuse to myself was” ” They played extra time”, an oblique reference to the only time we won the Football World Cup in 1966.

Another from then is the almost last words of the commentary at that match: ” They think it’s all over…!”

Let’s hope it is soon.

Don’t go out.
Stay safe, stay well.

Where we can't go

This is on the South Downs way, taken just over a year ago, and I’m putting it out there as a bit of a change from recent c word postings. We can’t get out there any more but the wildlife will hopefully thrive in what will be a peaceful time for them.

Keep clear and carry on.
