This week’s contest is Workspace. Where you work, what you work with, work on or work in.
I am grateful to be able to work in this stressful time. I know there are many who cannot.

You can be as creative as you’d like.

I think everybody uses those same red Rubbermaid containers to take their lunch to work.

I also no longer work, but here's a shot from one of my various roles in the job I had for over 40 years - X-Ray scanning shipping containers for contraband...



Sony RX100, on a misty January late shift in Tilbury Docks.

Cheers :)

Birds need to eat lunch too.

Breakfast....lunch....dinner...three or four snacks in-between..... Ack, these guys are eating me out of house and home!!! From the looks of it when I’ve tried counting the gang when most of them are on the deck all at once, I’m feeding about 21 or 22 sparrows. AIEEEEEE!!!! Last week when I went to the grocery store I bought two five-pound packages of wild bird seed, figuring that this should do us nicely for a while.....and now, not even a week later I am seeing that my next trip to the store had better be sooner rather than later and that maybe I should buy THREE five-pound packages of wild bird seed..... AAAAGGGHH!!!!

Ah, but this is more than a wee bit OTT for this thread.... Apologies to Stillcrazyman, the host of this week’s competition, and to everyone.....

Are you sure your little buddy isn't sharing the bounty?

Ah, right, I forgot to mention that indeed Smaug and his fellow squirrel whom I've nicknamed "Mr Nervous" indeed also do partake of the wild bird seed that I've placed in the wooden tray, while ALSO dining on the sunflower seeds that I've provided for them in the orange plastic tray...... Both of them are greedy little guys! The sparrows also seem to experiment with the sunflower seeds too, cracking them open if they can manage to do so, but for the most part the sparrows stick to the wild birdseed in the wooden tray..... and they usually are the ones who consume most of it, as I've noticed while glancing out at everybody while sitting in here at the computer, where I can easily see through the sliding glass door and/or the screen door.....

Heh, actually I should take a photo of the deck, which really has become more a "workspace" than anything else, as these days it seems as though I'm always out there either sweeping up the cracked shells and stray seeds or replenishing one or both trays..... LOL!!!!

After a day in the Operating Theatre, nice to come home and catch up, and be grateful I didn't post a picture of the insides of a human chest. 🤪
