COWS IN HI-VIZ VESTS? A PREGNANT NINETY-NINE YEAR OLD? WHATEVER NEXT?

Please Note: Whilst I endeavour to keep Media Monday family friendly some of the newspapers featured do have links to articles of a more adult nature.

Cows in Hungerford could be fitted with fluorescent lights and hi-viz vests to protect them from speeding motorists at night.

A Hampshire hospital has apologised for sending a 99 year old great-grandmother an antenatal appointment.

A letter addressed to 'Your man Henderson, that boy with the glasses' made it 85 miles from Belfast to a small town in Donegal.


A gun alert which saw armed police sweep on a quiet Worcestershire high street was triggered by a tennis racket mistakenly reported as a firearm

Must see images of the week .....


A picture showing the moment Milo, a six month old cat from Cumbria, wakes up from neutering and realises his testicles have gone has prompted men around the world to cross their legs and wince.  


A father from Liverpool captured what looks like a shark in the clouds.

I'm always amazed when I hear stories about mail getting delivered despite having no address and so little information as who the letter goes to. Poor Milo. I can only imagine. LOL Just what we need, sharks in the skies too. ;-)

Have a great week, Tracy!

Poor kitty. They caught those shots of him at just the right moment for that narrative.

I guess if cows have access to cross the roads like that, something really does need to be done to make them more visible (or encourage motorists to be more careful). I know that hitting a deer can have devastating results (not just to the deer, but to the driver and his vehicle), so I can only imagine what hitting a cow would be like.

I'm really liking the vest idea. Absurd but it could work! ^-^

Oh poor Milo- I saw a couple pictures of him the other day online. I can't even imagine!

That cat was funny. Poor baby!

Tracy, you really do find the funniest stories to feature. The cow story is more serious, though, and it's not a bad idea. I feel bad for Milo, and enjoyed seeing the shark in the clouds. Have a terrific week ahead!

That is actually a good idea to use lights on the cows. There was not much to the article but maybe the lights could run on a battery that is charged by solar power in the day?

Ha , ha . Cross my legs, I did. Couldn't help being not amused and at the same time empathise with the cat. The picture opf the poor cat tells all.
The shark cloud is fascinating. He caught it , Im sure just in time.
Needless to say more about your Monday posts. Enjoyed.

That is amazing about the letter getting delivered! So little to go on- but still it got there. :)

Entertaining as always!

I guess the vests would save motorists and cars as well as the cows.
