I thought one of my wedding disco shots with grainy noise would qualify but too early. back for a few days before my road trip but lots of editing, a dodgy PC again (new one beckons!) and poorly fathger in law all spells trouble and strife! Guessing I`ll be missing a while yet

I think you might be right with that one H re: the PC. I`ve nursed it through and got the wedding discs/ dvds/ slideshows  done and posted off so more relaxed now. I`ll be finishing all my backing up of key stuff and then making the plunge I think.
Current panic is that my wife is just not keen on making the USA trip on Saturday because her dad`s poorly. Doesn`t feel bad enough to go into hospital and dr said his blood etc is better than usual but still fighting off a bad chest infection. Arranged for 3 lots of carers a day to go in but still not happy. Meanwhile the insurance lot suggest it`s not bad enough to make a payout so we lose the lot if  we don`t go   :(

Difficult, especially as she lost her mother not so long ago.

it's not quite Saturday yet, maybe he'll improve, and she'll feel better about it. Fingers crossed.

In with Hungry Protest (and going by the silence today I guess a cat is purring)

It made me jump with all its noise yesterday - our Starlings usually hatch two clutches each, so hopefully numbers will not drop too badly this year  :tup:

Nature is plain nasty. Cats doubly so . .

I still have no idea what to do for this week's challenge, although a yoof did go past me yesterday on a moped with a race can on - that was very noisy.

So, there I was wondering what to take a picture of for the challenge when I realised that I was wearing ear defenders . . . so problem solved.

Grateful for a pause in splitting a pile of logs I took a shot of the top of the machine and the ear defenders:
