A Load Of Bullocks

It's a hot day today and I am just about to walk down the 2 mile ( 600 feet drop) walk to the coast.
I'm helping out in the tea tent at the Prestatyn Car Show an big event organised by my brother in law
Refreshment tents need a cool head, and an ability to squeeze a dozen teabags at once while smiling through the back of your head.
A piece of cake!
I'll post some hetero macho photos of the event later, and because of the mostly " male" nature of the event I will make sure I dig out my zombie apron for the event
In the meantime I will leave you with a shot of the friendly bullocks from the other side of the village
Mary loves them so

  2. Being in the presence of cows or bullocks is like finding a secret place where nothing bad happens. Reminds me of when we had cows at home when I was a child.

    1. "... a secret place where nothing bad happens" ... Yes, but what if you find yourself, by accident, in the middle of a meadow (say, age eleven) with a bull (with all his ocks intact) eyeing you up and taking offence at your uninvited presence?

    2. We never had a bull, we used AI. So I am allowed to be reminded as I was.

    3. Of course you are "allowed". So am I. And I was reminded of ..., see above. Good thing about bulls with ocks intact that they take some time to rev up; a certain amount of stamping their front hooves before they jump into action; long enough, if you are a fast runner, to leg it and jump a fence.

  5. We are moored by a field of bullocks, they keep peering through the windows of the boat.

  6. I hope the weather stays nice for the show - and that there's enough hot water! How are you with cutting cake and pouring tea at the same time?

    Splendid bullocks, btw.

  7. Bullocks are about as manly as petrolheads. There's something missing.

    1. YP, you make me laugh more often than not; your comments as dry as cow pats up the Alm mid summer, late afternoon.

  10. ah - but more to the point, do the bullocks love Mary?
    As to the Car Show being mostly male - made me smile. Tennants, our 'posh' auctioneers, had a vintage car auction the other week - there was hardly a female to be seen at the viewing day but there were an awful lot of very posh, very rich-looking males.

  11. Enjoy the show . . . and the tea . . .

  12. Knowing what a generous nature you own, 'twould be a sweet idea to invite at least one of them back home with you to share your bed along with other misc dogs and cat.

  13. Sounds like a fun way to spend your day. Lovely little cows.

  14. I just woke up ... I read that as "A Load of Buttocks."

    Just sayin',

  16. Try to enjoy the show, you'd enjoy a classic convertible. So are they heifers, cows, bulls, or steers? They are cute.

  17. This sounds like the perfect day to bring out the best of you. Have a great day!

  18. And now I truly know what a load of bullocks is.

  19. We had some in a field next to the garden in our last house. Our cat, Rupert, was fascinated by them, and would sit close by the fence (but on our side) while they, equally fascinated by him, breathed noisily over him. They sort of 'harrumph' if that really is a word.

  20. Only the posh ladies get to do the tea tent in our village, they carry on as if bestowing a knighthood if you get asked to join, I’m so glad it is hard work.

  21. Wonderful picture. I will have to admit, I had never heard the term bullocks. So I googled it. And under the Urban Dictionary, I found this:

    "A term Americans mistakenly use when they really mean to say bollocks."

    Yeah, I thought you might enjoy that. ;-)

  27. Dear me, so that is a proper bullocks?
    I mutter 'bullocks' whenever I am frustrated; I wasn't aware they were actual animals.
