Walkies again this morning, but nothing as extravagant as yesterday.
Just around the big block to walk out some stiffness from yesterdays epic.
I found this nice reference to the number eleven while I was out so I took a photo and now here it is.
Stuart and Mabel street will mean nothing to anyone. It's just a photo I took to show I was there.
Oops, looks like it's the end of the road for me, but fear not fair maiden, for I have a plan.....umm, what was the plan again???
Ok so this is the top of North street that I refer too from time to time. And yes it is as steep as it looks.
As for the veggie garden we have rain predicted here for tomorrow and I am hoping it will hold off long enough for me to prepare for and plant (direct sow) some carrot, cabbage, cauliflower and brocolli seeds before it sets in.
Cheers for now
P.S. Happy Valentines day.
And I know why he had his head chopped off.
The first representation of Saint Valentine appeared in the Nuremberg Chronicle, (1493); alongside the woodcut portrait of Valentine the text states that he was a Roman priest martyred during the reign of Claudius II, known as Claudius Gothicus. He was arrested and imprisoned upon being caught marrying Christian couples and otherwise aiding Christians who were at the time being persecuted by Claudius in Rome. Helping Christians at this time was considered a crime. Claudius took a liking to this prisoner -- until Valentinus tried to convert the Emperor -- whereupon this priest was condemned to death. He was beaten with clubs and stoned; when that didn't finish him, he was beheaded outside the Flaminian Gate. Various dates are given for the martyrdom or martyrdoms: 269, 270, or 273.
