The return – Road Stuff

The post Christmas break did me a world of good, and it seems to have done you lot good too, with around a nundred photos posted on the day. Some really good ones too, you talented lot.

Now listen, at #mancscurry I discussed #SUNDAYPICS with those who enjoyed it, in the main about the best way to prevent me from burning out now that there are so many entries for every theme, and given that I wanted to write proper narrative blogs. Most suggested I make it a monthly event, so that I’d be able to write the blogs and not feel forced to spend the whole of every Sunday collecting, tagging and commenting. Those who have done a guest stint on here will tell you how time-consuming the process actually is.

So, #SUNDAYPICS will be weekly up to and including 4th March, after which I’ll change to running a theme on the first Sunday of every month. Of course, this doesn’t stop you having unofficial #SUNDAYPICSFRINGE events like the recent Animal Arses. Before we hit the pics, enhoy this video and listen to the music as you browse. @alliterative says the theme reminded him of The Arrogant Worms.

Now here’s your Roady pics – hover over them as usual for names and explanatory notes. They really are worth a look – some fascinating pics.

A Yorkshireman in the green hills of Lancashire, UK Not a real wombat, obviously, or typing would become an issue. I do have short legs and a hairy nose, however. Oh, & a distinctive smell.
