The Oak Tree

 Coombe Country Park

A sweet relative of mine emailed recently asking for 
an update on how this beautiful oak tree was doing.
So this morning I went and had a look for myself. 
Thankfully, it is looking as good as ever, I would have to say.

Photos taken this morning after a nice long walk around the park.

Please take care and stay safe!

Time Flies

Moon Landing - 50 Years Ago Today

Commemorative Apollo 11 Medal
made by Lombardo Mint, Canada

Fifty years ago today, I was home sick with the flu. 
So glad.  I was able to watch the whole moon landing on TV. 

How about you?

My dad was an avid coin collector.  This medal is from his collection and
was passed on to my husband, a Coventry kid.  He found a good place for it :).

100 Years Ago...Remembered

Remembrance Sunday
Brinklow Village, Warwickshire

St John the Baptist Church -
Look closely and you will see 
glass silhouettes of two soldiers sitting on the bench above.

Cascade of hand-crafted poppies.
Today marks the 100 year anniversary of the end of hostilities
in the First World War at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

There are many displays throughout the Village.  A wonderful effort by all.
Below is a display focusing on WWI Tank Corp.

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom 
and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day 
"to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth 
military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts'.


Greetings.  It has been a long time.  I have been
busy but still taking photographs here and there.  
Brinklow Village is located a short distance from Coventry, about
10 minutes from my home.  When I saw all the
hard work that had been undertaken (and believe me
there is so much more than what I show here), I 
decided I must share.

Warmest Best Wishes to you All!

Coventry City Football Club Celebrate

Today's Promotion Tour 
around Coventry City...
and right past our street.

It wasn't long ago that Coventry City Football Club (founded in 1883)
was in the top league of English professional football.
In 2001 after 34 years in the Premier League they were relegated
 and the slide began. 
In 2017 the club was relegated to League Two, the fourth tier.

Last Monday, CCFC successfully beat Exeter at Wembly and won
promotion to League One.

A new beginning?  Hopefully!!!
