Wednesday's Words on a Friday

Image
  The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems. The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind. If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along to read it and add a few encouraging words. This month the words/prompts are supplied by Hilary Melton-Butcher and can be found here This week's words/prompts are:  1. brick  2. fully  3. carapace  4. hessian  5. snowdrop  6. grizzly  and/or:  1. illustrator  2. violet  3. ailment  4. twigs  5. eureka  6. dinkum here is my story: (continuing on from last week:) The following week, I went with Terry to the Farmer’s Market. He’d been a little too excited all week and I wondered what it was he wasn’t telling me. I knew about the Art Stall, so it couldn’t be that. I knew too, that Khoral Kai

  Long ago, Kim of Frog ponds Rock, (who no longer blogs), dreamed up a meme called Sunday Selections.  A place where those who were willing could put up photos they wanted to share, new, old, good, bad or indifferent, any photos you please.  Nothing rude or vulgar though. And we don't mind at all if overseas bloggers care to join us. The meme is now continued by Elephant's Child and I occasionally join in as do a few others. Andrew is one.  Messymimi is another. Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look. still standing knee-deep in the water watching the clouds I was amazed at how quickly the patterns were changing, large clouds being torn apart into drifts, smaller drifts coming together to form new clouds looking from the water across the sand, this is just one of many tracks leading through the dunes from The Esplanade to the beach. This is so the dunes don't get trampled and damaged as they are a haven for some plants and for many lizards, small birds and othe

Spam message on my phone

 it started with a phone number I did not recognise, then the text  goes like this: "Our private video is out on the web-someone stole it. We have no idea how that happened." Then there is a link which I did NOT open, because this is spam and I won't print it here at all in case some readers don't realise it is spam. Beware people! They're out to get you.

Musical Monday

Tasker Dunham of A Yorkshire Memoir   brought forth an old memory, a song I liked when I was young and my dad liked it too. By Paul Evans: I hope it plays and of course it isn't the same funny version I watched at you tube, because THAT ONE doesn't come up in the selection screen 😕

It didn't originate in Semaphore and I don't remember now where it is from, somewhere else in Adela
