The town crier and the doner register guy

I had a lovely lunchtime encounter today. Over in the main hospital concourse was a stand promoting and raising awareness of organ donation, and these two beaming gentlemen greeted me.They didn’t need to convert me, if any bits of me are useful after I’ve popped my clogs that’s fine by me, share me around. If you’re not already on the donor register, check it out here and sign up if you can.

Now, I missed any shouting about it that the town crier did, but he and his buddy were happy to chat and have their photos taken. Apparently Roger Bourgein, who is the Exmouth Town Crier, does around 200 events a year and earns a pittance doing so!

Here he is in all his regalia, what a lovely smile.

Thanks guys for brightening up my lunch break, keep doing what you’re doing.



Weekly Photo Challenge: Habit

One of my frequent habits is my lunchtime stroll at work, I just have to leave the office and get some fresh air and peace. I always have my mobile with me and often make calls because I can’t at my desk. Having it with me is useful, it has a great little camera and there’s lots to see all year round.

So here is my habit, snapping everything from flowers, leaves and nature, to firemen and my own sunbathing legs one day when it was too hot to move!

Does your habit include taking photos of robots and bagpipe players at lunch? Whatever ahbit you have share it at
