A little whimsy for your day

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I need a little whimsy today.  So I found some on the internet.  I hope you like the following as much as I did.

LONDON (AP) — It was scooped up from the sea after 98 years, and now officials say a message in a bottle discovered in Scotland has set a world record.

Fisherman Andrew Leaper found the bottle— released in 1914 — in his nets in April while sailing east of the Shetland Islands, which lie off Scotland’s northern coast.

Guinness World Records confirmed Thursday the find is the oldest message in a bottle ever recovered, beating a previous record by five years.

It was released in a batch of 1,890 bottles in a government experiment to map the undercurrents of the seas around Scotland.

Inside each bottle, a postcard asks the finder to record details of the discovery and promises a reward of a sixpence. Unfortunately for Leaper, the coin no longer exists.end of story marker

And because I love turtles.

Largely unchanged for millions of years, no wonder it looks like a dinosaur. ::is geek::

And, of course, after this little news tidbit, how could I not post this?

Go doggies, go! They’ve got to be around here somewhere.

    1. I thought so too, on both counts. Can you imagine pulling in a net or walking along a beach and finding something like that?
      I’ve also always had a thing for turtles so I loved that photo. It was too good not to share.
