Hide and Seek
“As this azure damselfly slowly woke up, he became aware of my presence. I was lined up to take a profile picture of his wings and body, but quite sensibly the damsel reacted to the human with the camera by putting the Marsh grass stem between me and it. I took the shot anyway. It was only later that I realised how characterful it was. And how much the damselfly looks like one of the muppets.”

Seriously, would you share some?
“Atlantic Puffins are amazing flyers and their fishing talents are – well – as you see, some do better than others! I just love the second puffin’s look – can I just have one please?”

Happy Wednesday. 🙂

Mind the Teeth

A carnivorous domain has commandeered this pool. But what sort of domain?? Here is a laundry list of possibilities:

– degenerate elf spa

– psychopathic salad greens

– denture retirement home

– the evil car from Stephen King’s evil car novel

– Michael Bay film set

– vicious attack bunny lair

– there’s nothing carnivorous in there at all; it’s the secret toilet paper depository

What do you think?

Happy Wednesday. 🙂

October 30’s Friday Flower

Here are some candle flowers. But they can’t hold a candle to …

Candle flowers.

Oh … hello. Where did you come from? Well, it seems that a magic pumpkin has joined my Friday Flower post. Umm, not sure how I feel about that. I suppose it can stay as long as nothing else creepy happens.

Dear Pumpkin Being: do not grow arms, legs, fangs, or a mouth. If you do, I will get my blender and turn you into mush. Got it?

Not kidding.

It’s the Great Pumpkin!

Happy Halloween! 🎃

The Japes of Graft

As Monty Python used to say, “And now for something completely different … “

Firstly, my apologies to John Steinbeck, but I really couldn’t help myself.

Secondly, this title (and post) is in honour of Brian Lageose, who in particular does a terrific job of twisting well-known tales into Gumby dolls, and who in general is a terrifically funny writer. You can visit his site at https://brianlageose.blog/ Please do and take a stroll through his many wonderful posts. 🙂

A pretty sunrise, just for fun.

So, without further ado, a warped excerpt from the fictional “The Japes of Graft:”

“In the cold half-morning light, Rod stumbled across the dusty street, chasing a ten dollar bill that rustled and shimmied through the grime, a snake-like, reptilian escapee. Somewhere off to his left, a boy named Sue was snoring loudly and muttering about eyelash curlers. Rod stopped his chasing and listened intently, his heart pounding and jumping at the unexpected exercise. Would Sue awaken and steal his ten?”

Rod’s road?

Will Rod overcome his tendency to graft?

Will Sue awaken in time to enjoy her jape?

Will Rod realise that the ten is tied to string before it’s too late?

Will Rod and Sue become partners and keep the ten?

Personally, I think this book is about politicians. 😉

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to add a line or two to “The Japes of Graft” that honours Brian’s sense of humour and maybe twangs a funny bone or two.

I hope you choose to participate. 🙂

Stay the Blazes Home

The premier of Nova Scotia got pretty frustrated at the number of people still going outside to loiter in groups, so during a press conference he told residents to “stay the blazes home.”

His line has now gone viral (in a good way 🙂 ) and is being passed around everywhere. You can even get a t-shirt.

It costs $35.00 and all proceeds are going to covid-19 relief funds.

Stay healthy everyone and stay the blazes home. 😉

Sliding on a Slippery Icy Road

Here is a northern take on Winter Wonderland (my apologies and salutations to Felix Bernard).

Doorbells ring, are you listening?

In the lane, snowplows glistening

A breathtaking sight

We’re trying tonight

To stand up on a slippery icy road

Gone away is the sand truck

Here to stay is a cold front

It screams a north gale

As we plod along

Sliding on a slippery icy road

In the meadow we will build a shelter

And crawl inside to get out of the wind

You’ll say are you freezing

I’ll say not now

But that’s a possibility later on

In a bit, we’ll perspire

As we sit in the fire

We’ll thaw and we’ll stretch

Sam McGee at his best

Sliding on a slippery icy road

In the meadow we can build a shelter

And pretend that winter is all done

That’s quite a feat of self-deluded nonsense

But that’s what happens when you’re freezing cold

When it snows, watch for frostbite

When it blows, get a tissue

We’ll frolic and play, the northern way

Sliding on a slippery icy road.

A little northern humour. 🙂
