Day 273 - Monday 29th September

"When spider webs unite they can tie up a lion.” - African Proverb

What makes you strong?

Not really sticking to the prompt today, but to something that amazes me. My dad, as you can see from the last couple of days of photos, is a big man, even a lion of a man, and yet he is petrified of this little fella. My dad lives out in the country in a very old farmhouse and he has newts living in his drains, so they regularly make an appearance in his bath. He has to get his wife to get rid of them!!!!

Oh see things aren't always as they appear, large men aren't always the strongest or bravest!

He is cute does seem so funny that a big strapping farmer should be frightened of such a little think like that.
