Subject: RE: BS: Spring is here
The Mad Swans are at it one again, dragging themselves and their seven (this year) cygnets all the way to the lake every day and all the way back again. But - some good news! The powers-that-be have erected two big triangular signs at each entrance to the village, with a lovely silhouette of the swans/cygnets, warning drivers to slow down.
It remains to be seen if the blessed drivers will do so. We've already put up another Slow Down sign warning of children and horse riders, but the lorry drivers take no notice whatsoever and hurtle through the village like bats out of hell. I pray it will never happen, but we're all terrified of finding squashed swans, children or horses on the road one of these days. Why do people whizz about like this so irresponsibly?
