The Sights You See!

The Sights You See!

After days of wall-to-wall sunshine, I awoke this morning to the Return of The Rain. Boo.

But, the flowers got a good water. Hurrah!

And, as I was driving into work this morning, bleary eyed and thinking about my holiday starting at the end of this week, I was startled by an unexpected sight! No, not more cows on the beach πŸ˜‰ but something you certainly don’t see every day.

I saw a lady walking down the street, smartly dressed, and looking like she was on her way to work. Nothing odd about that, you say?

Well.

Yes……..

But, she was wearing one of these:

HATT-5580

Seriously, she really was!

I can only assume that she had misplaced her brolly during the recent spell of dry weather!

Certainly not a sight I expected to see at 8am, but it made me laugh πŸ˜€

Have you seen any strange sights while out ‘n’ about recently?

  1. I’ve thought one of those would be good for rainy day running – but of course, you’d need a chin strap. And you know, beverages with a straw could be hooked on underneath. Maybe a sound system too. Then, of course, a solar panel on the top so you could charge your cell phone, and preferably have a few lights attached… for safety, of course. They will be fabulous and fashionable. I’m going to market them and make my fortune! πŸ˜€

    1. Ha ha, I’d buy one of those! Can I have a special order one with a net too to keep the midges from biting me? πŸ™‚

      1. Yes!! Now, we just need to decide if we avoid bugs by hanging the mosquito net curtain around the hat, or if we need a spray / mister thing that will puff out sprays of midge repellent… oh, who I am kidding, we’ll add both!

      2. Ah ha! I like your thinking! The spray/mister could also have a fan attachment…..

  2. I want one of those! I didn’t see anything particularly weird lately, but last weekend, when I was standing at Threlkeld with a peanut butter sandwich awaiting a bunch of relay runners, someone actually asked me if we were doing the Bob Graham Round… I was very polite, but part of me REALLY wanted to say: “Nooooo, I just like standing here on a random crossroad at 2am with my lunch ready to go…”… πŸ˜‰
