Out and about in Bronte-land...

Greetings froggy fans.


It has been a long time since I last put these flippers to good use. So, firstly, the human being (the one with leukaemia) is still, amazingly, alive and kicking, as his his wifey. I have been resting, eating flies and generally re-aligning my shakra's (which is some kind of laying around meditating mumbo-jumbo, I think). Anway, the one moment of activity I can report occured in june 2010 when we wandered up to Haworth, North Yorkshire, which is where the Bronte family lived most of their lives. We saw the Parsonage...







...and met this massive black cat called Oscar prowling around the grave-yard.












and a few sheep : This one at Bronte falls..









Fortunately the hills (which were not alive with 'the sound of music' - Julie Andrews has a lot to answer for!) were very warm and sunny so we even braved a walk to Top Withens, the place, it is alleged, where Emily Bronte based 'Wuthering Heights' farm-house on. I am not sure if this is strictly true as other reasearch has indicated the no longer in existence High Sunderland Hall as the location. (Just search 'High Sunderland Hall' on Google). Anyway, Top Withens may have had its part to play and here is a photograph of me at it... (The location, not 'at it')...






and on the right is Top Withens itself.









The sign-post at the Bronte Falls (they'll say anything to get the tourists in ) said 1 1/4 miles to Withens. More like 3 1/2 miles, and it was hot and sunny (26C). The humans only decided to go for the last hill climb because they wished to avoid the football World Cup and a big political announcement telling the country how much of our wealth the Socialists had squandered. Still, we made back down safely, the male human bought lots of books and the female human another handbag. For me it was just nice to taste some foreign flies...


Stay cool world.

Ribbit!
