… to play in the Rugby World Cup – 20 nations, anyway. Big festivities for today, and lots of tourists enjoying fine weather while it lasts.

  2. Yee-ha, go the All Blacks! (nah, I support the French of course)
    I do hope the games are everything we all hope for: good sport, fair play and loads of fun.

    Would you believe? My anti-spam word is BOATING – suits your photo perfectly, doesn’t it?

    PS – re my photo of hanging stilettos, I didn’t train the pigeon. Bob (St Louis Daily Photo) took our photos almost at the same time, mine perhaps 2 seconds after his, and I got the pigeon, he didn’t. Lucky me!

  5. Aha, I looked at the thumbnail and wondered why someone would be flying all the colours. I know nothing about rugby but of course I support Canada. Meanwhile, I love the photo.
