Stewart M said...

Hi there - glad you liked the moon shots - and also glad that I have given you a new phrase for the moon! I assume I picked it up from my mum (that’s "mom" to you!!) in my long gone childhood in rural England!

I first saw a Painting Bunting in a kids colouring book (I could do a spelling joke here - but I'll let it pass!) and I thought it had to be made up - but when I first saw a picture of one I was stunned! Really would like to see one in the flesh!

Cheers _Stewart M - Australia
