Post Post


Driving down towards the Eye Brook Reservoir the other night my headlights caught these improvised reflectors on a series of fence posts. Obviously recycled from something, today I stopped and took a closer look. Not the least because some were useful candidates in the Country Alphabet I started with that Quenby gate fastening back in February. It took me a while to figure out what they were from. You will, I know, be much quicker to spot the donor. This is a very narrow lane, and I expect the farmer got fed up with local traffic ramming into the posts in attempts to avoid each other. It may be the same resourceful chap who some years ago put an Atlas Carriers truck body to use as a hay store, and once, unless I was seeing things, had chickens standing about on a First World War armoured car. Anyway, aren't these warning signs so much better than just about anything the so-called Highways Agency or local councils come up with. More signs made from perished white rubber bicycle reflectors please.

Ahah. The re-appropriation of a Give Way, or Road Works sign I think? Man has always recycled stuff. Just this week I photographed a Medieval stone tomb, that, 1200 years before, had been a Roman stone tomb and ended up as a stone horse trough in Earl Shilton. Built properly from a huge chunk of sandstone it has given 2000 years of unbroken service, to two corpses and countless horses. Nice posts Peter.

Thought they might have been off the back of something lengthy...

First I thought it was a high voltage sign, then a license plate, but would it be that flexible?

I think Philip might have it. Answer in a day or too, I'm off on the State Visit of the President of Comboland. I may be some time.

Quite clearly came from the outer packing case of the starter kit of 'INDIVIDUAL SIGNS A BOY CAN MAKE'. These came complete with a pair of tin snips, roofing nails, a can of florescent paint and some old telegraph poles. Such was its size, this kit would be delivered by a long vehicle...

Only just re-surfaced from the Combo Visit. It is, as Phil (1) and Jon (2) have quite rightly hinted at, it's the Long Vehicle sign from the back of, well, a long vehicle.

Dry penis sizegenetics Dry and flaking sizegenetics of an penis can often lead to soreness if left untreated. Dry sizegenetics can occur to be the result of friction from sex or from sensitivity to certain cleansers and the sizegenetics that are often found in condoms. Treating the sizegenetics utilizing a moisture-rich formula (shea butter is often recommended by dermatologists for sensitive penis sizegenetics) can help to keep the sizegenetics smooth and supple and retain its natural hydration.Penis rash Penis rash, which may result from dry sizegenetics, sensitivity to chemicals particularly soaps or sizegenetics, or fungal infections, may cause soreness, itching and discomfort.
