Blogtoberfest day 13.

I'm joining in with Tinniegirl today, she is running a challenge for people who are participating in Blogtoberfest to show themselves and share a self portrait.

This is me yesterday afternoon, sporting a new scarf which was given to me as a birthday present. It was taken 10 minutes after we saw our first two snakes for the season. Alfie was almost bitten as he tried to attack the snake back! We only got one of them so we'll have to watch out today for the other! Sorry for the late post today.....I have been glued to the TV watching the first Chilean minor being brought to the surface........I shed a tear or two when he hugged his son for the first time, wow amazing stuff!

Re: the minors, isn't it just amazing what people are capable of living through.

Great shot!

Yep - very emotional watching the miners come to the surface.

Great shot. What do you mean 'the first two snakes of the season'? Do you get a lot of snakes round your way? Makes me shiver just to think of it!

that is such a great pic!
you definitely don't seem panicked, I would definitely be if I spotted a couple of snakes.

Ugh snakes... they scare me! Glad no one was bitten. I love your shot :-) and yes the miners rescue was very emotional :-)

Vic said...

Brrr... I wouldn't be smiling like that after a brush with a couple of snakes!

It was amazing watching the rescue. I'm so happy for all those people and their families.

Great self portrait.
