It's not the Angel of the North

But rather the Tin Man of the South. He stands just alongside the M5 (hence the blurry photo), somewhere between Exeter and Bristol. I don't know who made him or why but his head is very small. And his arms fade away into nothingness. Perhaps they got to his shoulders and were running out of metal. Or maybe it's Art. * * * * * * * * * *

And I'll just say, 'Way-ales!' Hallelujah, we beat Argentina 27-20. It was better than the last result but we still have a lot of work to do and not much time to do it in (the World Cup competition starts in three weeks or so). I'll be at the Millennium Stadium next Sunday to see Wales take on France (who yesterday beat England for the second time in two weeks) in a friendly. Photos of the Stadium, which is a fabulous venue, will follow.

I've seen photos of that sculpture before...I quite like it. He seems as if he's about to fly...

What's the photo of beneath? I mean what kind of grain is it?

Wheat. According to Husband. We were in Devon for the weekend.

There are also camels en route, but they're hidden by hedges on the way back so I didn't get a photo.

Never seen that sculpture before. Thank you. I think it's rather cute.
