Juneathon 18/30 – are we nearly there yet?

It wasn’t that I was tempted to tumble off the Athon wagon today. It would be more accurate to say that I was tempted to do a great big high dive with triple somersaults off the Athon wagon. Apparently I’m not allowed to do that though. I could have just done the miserable route back from the supermarket, but there is one piece of treasure that I wanted to tick off before we head down south.

For this reason (and I hope that Fortnight Flo appreciates it) Ginge dropped me off near the milestone and I had to run the two point something miles back home (inevitably this would be rounded up to a nice tidy three…).

Quite fancy for these parts.

Ginge’s eagle eyes came in use again as he had spotted a deceased hedgehog at the side of the road. Thank you, @torsparkles for turning me into someone who takes photos of roadkill

Poor hedgehog.

I also spotted a postie’s red elastic band, which isn’t actually on the list but I took a photo of it for my mum because she says you don’t often see them any more.

Rarely seen round our way – one of the local councillors is waging a war on rubber bands. I am waiting for Mr Clegg to nick the idea to suggest as a government strategy.

I’m not sure which is worse, the fact that I have been photographing roadkill or that I have been photographing discarded rubber bands. In fact, please don’t answer that.

    Oh yes, the elusive red elastic band. Hector collects elastic bands and we noticed the red ones disappearing towards the end of last year, they use beige ones now. I hope you picked it up for your mum.

    ooooh that is a very posh one! I’m very impressed. Oh and my hubby is a postie so we have LOADS of those red rubber bands – they still use them around here!

    I appreciate the hedgehog road kill that’s a different type of road kill the we have in the states!

    I can confirm they still use them – evidently we are at the end of a bundle of post as our driveway is often littered with them!

    How sad to see another hedgehog has met its untimely end.
    Like red elastic bands we’ll miss them when they are no more.
    Don’t get me started on bees …
