Time for the Cock and Bull ;
The link to the photo is on top of this post ,it leads to my dropbox. Please credit Pixabay when you post, as pr site rules.
The aim of this challenge is to write a cock and bull story , inspired by the photo. It can be as silly as you like, in fact the more outrageous the better, or maybe a wee bit serious, - but it must be a story of some kind. Let your imagination soar.
Please remember to post the pages here in this thread after you have posted them in the challenges gallery, Cock and bull have a section .
My credits; This challenge was invented by a sister design team called the Sissy sparrows. They ran this challenge on the Lilypad, and have since retired . I miss them still, and with them in mind let the challenge go on .
Have fun .

Thank you for another brilliant photo for the challenge Vivi and for hosting - here's the tale of Great Grandfather Paddy O'Male -
This is a photo of my grandfather Michael O’Male from Co. Antrim. The bike belongs to his father Patrick or Paddy as everybody knew him. I’ve heard so many stories about my Great Grandfather Paddy - his job was akin to the Pony Express but his pony was his treasured bike. He was known to travel 100s of miles across Ireland delivering important mail to remote areas. Grandad Michael loved when his daddy put him on the back of the bike and more so when he was old enough to go for a ride with him.
After every journey and once his mail was delivered, Paddy would clean and polish that bike, he always kept it in tip top condition and even after he stopped his mail deliveries and his bike was retired to an out building, Paddy would regularly go out there and give it another good clean and polish.
The bike stayed in our family along with the house for over 60 years after Paddy passed away but, in 2017, the house had been empty for some years as everybody had gone their different ways, it was decided to sell the property off. The responsibility was given to an auction house who sent their people in to get things ready and that’s when Paddy’s bike was rediscovered ……….. It turns out that vintage motorcycles are real collectors items. The family were advised to take the bike to a specialist auction house across the water to London and that is where Paddy’s bike really came into it’s own……….to everybody’s surprise and joy, because of the bikes pristine condition the bike went for a staggering £452,234. So, thanks to Paddy’s love for his bike, his treasure went onto become real treasure for all of his remaining family
