Dear Tufty, Good to see you on the Lake again today, and what a pleasure it was to see Mrs Tufty with you! I did try to take some photos of you both together, but you seemed a little coy! Will we be seeing a hatch of Master and Miss Tuftys with you shortly? I’ll keep my camera handy. Dear Machu Picchu, You do look … Continue reading Letters to the Universe… The Rushed Edition!
Debbie’s one-word photo prompt this week is ‘Cliché’, so I present an image inspired by a phrase that could be considered cliché by some. Can you see what it is just from the photo? I’ll reveal the answer at the bottom of the post… how cliché! About the image: Close-up photo of the Lawn out in the Grinds taken using a Galaxy Note 4 mobile … Continue reading Cliché
Thoughts spiral Peck and chip Nag and itch List and last Settle fast Or linger Throughout life If allowed to run Some are fun But the whole of them? The total sum? Laced with anger Tinged with greed Filled with urges And desperate needs Saints and sinners Sing their prayers Splitting hairs Resting demons Allaying fears That grew From but a single seed Planted carelessly … Continue reading Wordle: Dark Thoughts
Firstly, what’s happened to Australia? Above is the odd image I get for Australia every time I view my WordPress admin on my mobile phone. I want the proper image back! I tried to copy an image of the Australian flag from Wikipedia, and got: Ulp. Very odd. Not to be put off, I’ve taken a screenshot, to be used as a temporary measure… … Continue reading Oddities!
A post to finish off a few loose ends, this one. In yesterday’s post, I found myself wandering around the jungles of Cheshire, taking a photo or two of whatever it was that caught my eye. The photo I used, however, had a couple of extras that I didn’t see at first, although I’ll admit the Spirits of the Trees in this particular post were … Continue reading Loose Ends
Inspired by, and in homage to, Diane Henders. By that, I mean the cartoon strip post, not the subject matter! It’s a slow blogging time at the moment… Continue reading The Hard Art of Blogging
Another poortrait… another clue, perhaps? Does this give the game away? Who was this again? Continue reading A Clue Too Far?

Several clues here which may or may not help with my latest portrait’s identity. I don’t want to give things away too soon… although we may not have to wait until next week to … Continue reading Clues come in many forms. Here’s many.
I’ve been feeling a little creative of late, and decided to have another go at painting a portrait. OH NO! I hear you shriek… that’s fine, I shrieked it myself. Instead of wasting using watercolour, I decided to go down the digital route with this one, and wasted a few thousand pixels and several thousand seconds instead. I shall give a few clues, but will … Continue reading Portrait. But of WHO???
Be a sport and answer my question I want three names in quick succession There’s nothing to win, but my head’s in a spin And my instincts have fell foul to the fact That although the tale I know well, these details I truly lack. These magi brought with them gifts many years ago, One ruddy, one gold, and the other yellow, To a baby … Continue reading Wordle: Wise Man?
Disconnected, me? I hardly think so, not I I’m far too selfish I heard an odd comment earlier today. I walked passed a couple who were chatting. I’d never seen them before, she had striking blue hair, which made her stand out, and it was she who was speaking as we passed each other. “… I like sitting at tables with strangers,” I heard her … Continue reading Disconnected
