I shouldn’t really complain, though, as it is Summer! And, I complain just the same when it is freezing cold in Winter, so the issue isn’t really the temperatures… it’s just me, and I like complaining about the weather!

How curmudgeonly. (1)

How cranky. (2)

How grouchy. (3)

How British. (4)

How rude. (5)

What a picklepuss. Devil Devil Devil Ooh, what fun! Six in brackets becomes a devil’s face…

Mostly I’m happy though. Blame the weather.

Six birds for Six Words. Yes – it’s Six Word Saturday again! Have fun!

    1. So much better as it is now, Sue. And it appears the (6) doesn’t work as it did earlier. Most odd…

        1. I think it’s an Open Writer thing. An S in brackets also gives a Moon…

  2. (6) ? No, I don’t appear to have the magic touch. (6) I’ll just have to complain about the weather instead. There’s plenty of it up here. Happy weekend, Tom! 🙂 🙂

    1. Sorry, Jo… it must have something to do with my Open Writer program… I’ve noticed in the past (S) becomes a Moon for some reason… should have realised at the time.
      Hope you’re having happy weather!!!
      Happy weekend to you too, Jo! 😀

      1. A moon would be nice, Tom. Hang on- let me look! It’s a little cloudy 🙂 🙂 Singing along to the Foo Fighters at Glastonbury. Only on the TV unfortunately.

        1. Sounds like you’re having fun, Jo. And with a better view as well, I’d guess!

    1. Thanks, Debbie. I got six words in with my six words! (6) seems a tad intermittent, however!
      Hope you too are having a great weekend!

  4. It does??? Lemme try it …. (6) ….. now if that doesn’t make a little red faced grizzling divil I shall be very disappointed.

    I thought at first that you’d got a right old face ache going on … then I realised it was a 6 word challenge. I think you’re amazing for doing that because I, as you well know, have a problem keeping my wordage short. [sigh]
    I shall now shut up.
    Clever post.
    Here’s hoping for a little divil….. fingers crossed!

    2. The (6) is a localised condition, Cobs, I’m afraid to announce. ‘Tis activated via Open Writer, which is what I use to write my blog posts in. I thought it was a nifty shortcut but the devil got the better of me.
      Yup! Six Word Saturday, and this time I tried for six words. Still wrote more, but I’m getting there! 😀 The good thing about this challenge is that only the title needs to be six words – the rest of the post can be any length we like! So, fabulous! 😀

  5. Ha! I learn something new every day. Now I must go and try out the (6) somewhere, though it doesn’t seem to work in your comment box. Maybe in HTML?

    1. I think it only works in Open Writer, Diane. Even the devil emoji from the keyboard is a different face. It’s very strange.

  6. Clever post, Tom. Mom Nature can’t please us all plus she is quite moody. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks, Eugenia.
      I like the warm weather, but not the HOT weather. Mother Nature does try though, as you say you can’t please all of the people all of the time! 😀

  7. I think we should blame the weather for everything! 🙂 Picklepuss? I’ve not heard that before – is it a word of your own making?

    1. That would make things easier, Elaine.
      And ‘picklepuss’ is an actual word – it means someone with a sullen or gloomy expression. A variant of sourpuss, I think.
