Boxing in the late 1880s

55 rounds in September 1888.
Arthur BOBBETT is one of my ancesters.

12 rounds in  November 1888

 46 rounds in September 1890
You would have thought this was the time to give up boxing & get back to his day job!
But, no
In 1892 his wife served up turtle for breakfast!!
Read what happened next
He was a 'Cab Proprietor'  then a publican. In & out of court with one thing & another!
In the 1939 register they were living in Teddington (note says retired gentleman!)
He died in 1945, his wife Maria died in 1941.

The removal gang!

Last week I had all my shells that I had collected over the years & put in small baskets outside my house - STOLEN!!! Why would anyone do this?
Then there was this I saw at the Lagoon a few weeks ago
today I noticed that the 'Y' was missing! 
Last Saturday I put a 'mini installation' on the fence. It lasted 6 days.

 (Angry Birds)
Today I installed this one
wonder how long it will stay...........

Weather change! Down to 19C and a chilly wind. 
Yellow 'noodle' all alone! Rain setting in.
