Father goose, sailor man and deer.

1. On most mornings I see a father on a bike taking a selection of kids on scooters to school.

2. A Popeye post on Classic Cartoons. Looking at the stills, I can almost hear Popeye's 'Ack ack ack' laughter and his 'ommnyum-nyum-nyum' as he eats the spinach; and Olive Oyl crying 'Aw Popeye, hayulp.'

3. By chance coming across a TV programme about Johnny Kingdom. He was filming stags with their antlers still covered in velvet -- the layer of skin that protects them while they grow. He got them on the skyline so that the light hit the velvet just so, and it looked magical.
