You can’t beat a good crop circle. Such intricate geometric patterns. These aliens are clearly very artistic with boundless amounts of patience. It’s kinda reassuring to know that the earth is clearly the preferred canvas of choice for alien art.

Unfortunately something is a clearly amiss with the Yorkshire Crop Circles.

Have the aliens that visit Yorkshire been indulging in too much Newcastle Nuclear Brown Ale or Black Sheep Holy Grail Ale.

Or are the Yorkshire Aliens the Galaxy’s avant-garde pioneers. No intricate geometric patterns here. Or maybe it’s the weather. You can imagine an alien more at home in fertile hospitable climes saying something like this as he is starting his Yorkshire Crop Circle in the pouring rain

Bugger this for a lark let’s get it done as quick as possible then we are out of here”

When I told this story to our son he just looked at me with that look… thought for a few seconds then said.

Dad why on earth would an alien fly all those billions of light years to do a bit of art then fly back again. You need to look for the rational explanation. Clearly we have some mighty big field mice these days”

Clearly the all too common stereotype that autistic people do not have a sense of humour is clearly true which thus means we need a much bigger cat….

      2. Mind you where we are now which is closer to the North Sea, is not as bad as when we were closer to the river and the plastic chairs would fly through the air on stormy nights and you’d be collecting them from all sorts of places….

  1. πŸ˜€ I agree with Ruth. An apple from the same tree, with that good old autistic seriousness to make it even more hilarious.

  2. Your photos look more like the Jolly Green Giant went tromping around in the field, rather than the work of artistic aliens! And your son! What a completely logical, rational mind! Kind of spoils the fun, but smart! I suppose he never bought into the myth of the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus, either, eh? Hugs!

      1. No no no … I don’t know what I was thinking … not a myth, I meant … I meant … um … reality … that’s what I meant! πŸ‡ πŸŽ…


      1. You too! I was thinking of you today – It’s Father’s Day here in the states. Not sure if it is there – but if it is (or if I am early or late) I think you are an amazing father and doing a tremendous job. Just wanted to let you know πŸ™‚

  3. Trying from another browser to see if i have any more ‘luck’ with my comments that keep disappearing after i send them! 😦

    You two should start a Double Act – you can be Ernie – he can be Eric! πŸ™‚

    It’s a pity you don’t own a drone (One a drone? Own a Drown?? English is such a stupid language!!!) I’d love to see those photos taken from 100 ft up! πŸ™‚ πŸ‘Ύ
    ( I can send this if i log OUT of WordPress, but not when i’m logged in? I don’t think there is anything wrong with your i-Pad since everyone else looks to have no such problem – I’ll deal with the ‘Happiness’ engineer myself and do what i/he can! Enjoy your coffee! πŸ™‚ )

      1. That must be the reason! πŸ™‚

        Ahh – i recall you did mention that a while back – and a slight lack of ‘approved’ airspace.

        My ‘happiness’ engineer got back to me and i suggested i contact the author’s of all blog’s i’m having problems commenting on to see if they can ‘remove’ me from their list of spammers! (basically, look at your comments WP has ‘killed’ as spam, from your dashboard, and check as ‘not spam’ a comment of mine – if it is there?)

        I checked my comment spam box and in the last week i had at least 2 caught as spam from fake addresses that contained links to some of my blog-pages which had been ‘hijacked’ to try to sell cialis!! 😦 Seems that might be the reason WP has blacklisted me on some blogs?

      2. WP is SO FUBARed. I’ve gone in circles with them over the “reblog” button disappearing. I have three browsers that can see it and three that can’t. How the f*** did they manage that?

      3. Oh. Sure. It’s Apple’s fault. I’m no Apple fan (too damn proprietary) but, they have a very tight system. WP, on the other hand, is programmed in the same language as Facebook…PHP. So…when you have a conflict between third party software & a proprietary operating system, my money is on the programming language being the culprit. Oh, the arrogance…
