The partridge is a médium bird, somewhere between a pheasant and a quail in size. They live and nest on the ground and eat seeds and insects. So the famous song of the Partridge in a Pear Tree is not realistic as you would not find them in a tree.
My postcard this week is from a series of posters during WWII. This one encourages people to save energy and fuel. Particularly difficult for the English and their bath culture. I have been told that people had to have a bath in a few inches of wáter. Nice!
This Little chappie is my gorgeous grandson Luciano. He turned three last week. Here he is with his mummy (my daughter-in-law) getting ready to blow the candles. He can't count yet so it doesn't matter he has 6 candles. The more the merrier.
