On A Rainy Day in Shelford, I...

... took photographs like a tourist... of the Church and graveyard..
...of wisteria and honeysuckle clad thatched cottages..
...and then, in celebration of the Queen's Jubilee, I saw this..
Quite alarming... this isn't My Telephone Box, by the way... this belongs to the village before mine...
...but very imaginative, don't you think?? Note the little interview tacked on at the bottom...
...but then, and this is what I really wanted to share.... someone has chirpily celebrated the birthday of our (my) telephone box... I meant to get a photo as soon as I saw it but then, one thing and another... so the balloons look a little like Eeyore's balloons after Pooh and Piglet had at them... still... Happy Birthday to  imagination and unexpected gifts everywhere!

Thank you for taking us along on your little adventure. I love how you've captured the very essence of Britishness at a particular point in time and place. I'm running a little late but I will be back to read the screenplay and other blog entries.
