There were 10 Green Bottles Standing on the Wall…. and if one Green Bottle should accidentally fall

Well I guess you know the rest of the Nursery Rhyme. 

I came across these 9 bottle in the unlikely location of a Gentleman’s  Wash Room.   It also seemed as if Interior Decor, aesthetics and balance , dictated 9 as the number of bottles on display.  OR, maybe they just missed the numeric symbolism of the Rhyme.

Resist temptation… but …..

Social Distancing…. and Christmas !

_DSF1215qqq

If this was Rudolph, you could say he was keeping a very big Social Distance from his stable mates in the North Pole.  Whilst it is cold here today, it is obviously not that cold, he still doesn’t have his Red nose.

OK, don’t shout….. I know this is a Deer and not a Reindeer,  but I thought it was a bit of fun to stumble across this in our village this morning. 

Still far too early for Christmas decorations for my liking…..  but each to his own.
