    Wales #3 Porthcawl (no, don't go there)

    More off-beat observations of what can only be Wales. If you missed Wales #1 you were lucky! Wales and Wales #2 was even worse. Wales #2

    Rob, these beautiful pics made me laugh out loud (Welsh paranoia in particular). Well done. Great color.

    Thanks. And did you notice the toilet theme that is developing here? Watch this space.

    All great shots as usual and I love the humour, Neo Classical Toilets, and Paranoia brought tears to my eyes, and I needed a good laugh - thanks
    My favourite shots are Paranoia and Welsh Security, with or without the humour

    Oh Gawd, don't tell me the Baptists have discovered Wales...of course now, I've offended half the members of this forum...but I have to tell you, we have a Baptist church on every corner not taken up by a drug store or a gas station....they're everywhere...a nice Presbyterian church or perhaps a good Methodist..okay, but........

    (By the by, I am currently doing a whole series of work on all the Baptsist churches located within 50 Miles of my home...I've only covered about 1/3 of the area and am well over a 250 churches...one on every street corner..I tell you.)

    All well done Rob, but #2 and #5 for me. Not into purple but the coloring in #5 is a winner.

    #5, I had a lock like that. Pretty good stuff. I've seen a couple of blokes with an oxy-acetylene torch having a go at it, and somebody filled it with lighter fuel and set fire to it. All you had to do was break off the hasp.

    Wendy - if I can make you happy with a shot of some Welsh neo-classical toilets (under refurbishment) then my life's mission is complete...

    I DO love your sense of humor! and, yes, like the rest, thank you for the laughter. What flavor ice cream did you get? or,.... don't tell me that you passed it up.....

    The last image is my favorite.

    The Turdis was an absolute classic and good for a howl.

    Is this a good time to tell you of my anti-mole method? We have a problem with moles on our lawns, and someone told me that they hate strong smells, get confused, and hopefully go away. So sometimes I go out into the garden in the morning (we're not overlooked) and urinate into an old kitchen jug (not the one that my wife uses for measuring bread-making stuff) and mix in some creosote. I swish it around and pour it down a newly-developed mole hole. They don't like dried lion dung either, but there aren't many lions in West Wales.

    Whilst I might have somewhat of a tendency to use 10 words when 1 will do - this time 1 really will do and it is NO!

    I have to go and rustle up something resembling items fit for human consumption now...and you know how hard that is for me at the best of times...Now you've gone and put me right off.....

    Did you know (1,016) -

    Does anyone own any Harris Tweed trousers, skirts etc? If so, you may want to skip this.

    In olden times - when the tweed was really made in wee croft houses instead of big factories (but let's keep telling the tourists that it is), the tweed was soaked in ammonia to build up its weather and water-proofing qualities. Well, what's a good source of ammonia? That's right.

    So, when guests were round at the house for social evenings, they were always invited to visit the bucket at the back door before they left so that the stocks could be built up and ensure there was plenty supply in which to soak the tweed.

    So, if you have any aforesaid garments - go into the wardrobe and give them a good smell!
