Image
 Long, long ago, in days of yore...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.

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

  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 prompts are:   1. silent  2. tea  3. summer  4. scrunch  5. tapestry  and/or:  1. hare  2. house.  3. catalogue  4. clear-cut  5. path Here is my story: God’s Observation Deck #10 Peter found God leaning over the golden railing at the edge of the observation deck. He joined him, saying, “looks like there is Peace on Earth down there today Boss.” God chuckled and replied, “Long may it last, eh Peter?” Peter reached back and drew a couple of G

Put your hands in the air and give me all your gold Gillian: I don't have any gold Meg: then hand over the bunnies and no one gets hurt Gillian: I can't do that Meg: why not? Gillian: because my hands are in the air! Followed by the hysterical giggling only little girls can do Let's play in the Pirate Ship!

Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look.  Today, a couple of garden photos, then Meg's new sister πŸ˜€ my Crassula "Ladies Fingers" is much happier in this bigger pot and certainly looks better my chickens are finally back in the garden.
