Finally managed some photos

If you look at the bumper on the front of this car, you will see how we shop for poultry in Beetley!

This is our dog, Ollie, enjoying a refreshing dip in the sea at Holkham.

It has taken me ages tonight, just to work out how to import pictures onto this blog! A sure sign of advancing years. Now I have finally managed to add these two to this post, I am going to call it a night. More to come, when I have the necessary patience. I have even sent out a desperate request to WordPress for advice, so you can ignore it, if you see it.

    1. Hundreds of them get killed by cars and trucks here every month, Kim. They strut around in the road, then leave it too late before they fly off.
      Best wishes, Pete.


  1. Reblogged this on beetleypete and commented:

    This short post is from 2012, so not that many of you have seen it before. This was the first time I managed to insert photos into a blog post, after many hours of frustrating experiments. Ollie was just nine months old then. He no longer likes to wade in the sea, much preferring freshwater rivers or ponds.


  2. Great pictures, and I’m happy to see you mastered inserting pictures into your posts.. You should have seen me trying it for the first time… I won’t say how many days it took to figure out just setting up the blog face page with all of the doo dads and the like.. I finally got it to where I wanted it and then I closed that account and took a winters break.. Coming back was a breeze thank goodness as I somehow remembered what to do,.. LOL.. aw those aging brain cells…

    Take care, Laura


  3. At long last we see some pictures! 🙂 This is a great start, Pete. Love your photos. Ollie looks great, I look forward to seeing LOTS of shots of handsome Ollie in the future. 🙂
    Love from Norway, Dina & co x


  4. I can’t tell for sure, but I suspect there is a dead bird in the grille of that car! I think I’m to blame for at least one fatal “pigeon collision.” Of course, pigeons are not exactly an endangered species. Even in Las Vegas, they are quite numerous. Nice photo of Ollie. If I were going to have a dog, that would be a breed that would definitely interest me. And, no, I wouldn’t enter him/her into any dogfights (reminds me of a chapter from “White Fang”).

    1. You are correct, it is a dead bird, a pheasant! The nurse was visiting a neighbour, and she hadn’t noticed that the bird was dead in her front grille…
      It is not uncommon around here to see lots of dead animals in the roads, but they are not so common still stuck to the car!
      Regards from Norfolk, Pete.

        1. Your emoji was too close to the link. I got it working now.
          I can’t imagine throwing a ball so hard that it could kill a bird in flight. At least it died instantly. 🙂
          Best wishes, Pete.
