Bear with me!

I'm trying to figure this pictures and text business out, because I don't like how the pictures all jammed together in the punting post.

This, as you might guess, is my son in his new sweater. He's worn it out a few times, despite the fact that it is the middle of the summer! It's knit to the recommended gauge, but it's a very loose fabric. Soft and nice, but if I was using it again, I'd try on 10 mm instead of 15s, I think, just to make it more dense.

And here we have the Humped Zebra Crossing. We have so far seen no humped zebras, but are keeping our eyes open! I wonder why the humped ones get a special crosswalk?

Actually, lemme tell you! A crosswalk is painted black and white and called a zebra crossing. This one is on what we'd call a speed bump and they call a hump, I guess! So it's a bump that's painted in stripes...

We've seen another sign that says Heavy Plant Crossing, and always watch for large greenery at that point.

Last but not least, a daisy from our garden.
