And on the unjust fella
But mainly on the just because
The unjust has the just's umbrella.
CJ and I were brought up with this witty ditty which is attributed to Lord Bowen . I was going to say that I had absolutely no idea who he was but when I read the Wikipedia article I realised that I did. I knew him simply from the quote in one of the legal textbooks I read more years ago than I able to remember. The quote, however, like many from those books stuck with me because they were usually far more interesting that the subject I was supposed to be learning. The quote was "When I hear of an 'equity' in a case like this, I am reminded of a blind man in a dark room - looking for a black hat - which isn't there". Ironically I am not sure that I can recall what an 'equity' is although I think it had something to do with the courts being able to interpret or modify common law. Didn't you just want to know all that? Actually it's just me showing that I haven't forgotten everything I learned. Although what good any of that ever did me or the world escapes me.
Anyway it's been raining here for over a week with the exception of Saturday morning and afternoon when the sun shone and we had the croquet club BBQ.
A prediction of things to come: and they did with even more drops
The apples were ready for harvest a week ago I believe.
When they will be harvested is anyone's guess.
Saturday late afternoon and we had a splendid double rainbow most of which I would have to have climbed several fences and moved several large trees to get in frame.
The pot of gold should be beneath this tree
There are two young olive trees at The Cottage. They are full of fruit (I was going to say 'olives' but that would have be stating the obvious). If I had realised they were going to be so prolific I suppose I could have learned what to do with them.
Just to the right of the base of the tree at the foot of the rainbow is a paddock with two alpaca. They were screaming fit to bust when I was photographing the rainbow.
I must try this more frequently
That's the cable from the micro-wave dish carrying my internet signal to the Cottage.
