railings relief rotor

Posted by Picasa Beside the railing overlooking the sea.

A monotonous job it is to dig over the potato bed preparing it for spring sowing.  A relief from the monotony is to throw overlooked potatoes uncovered too late with worm holes in them or green tinged from exposure to the air, into a sack on the path. The challenge is not to miss however far away you are from the sack.

Among toys in a mail order catalogue is something called Balloon Copter. It consists of a set of rotor blades which have to be attached to an inflated balloon. As the air escapes the device soars into the air whistling as it goes.
