It’s all black

Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: All Hallow Eve

Not really an Australian thing but the commercial aspect has taken over with all sorts of rubbish being sold in all manner of shops. I can see so much useless plastic ending up in landfill or cluttering peoples houses until they finally give in and throw it away.

I am concentrating on this part of the challenge ““When black cats prowl, and pumpkins gleam may luck be yours on Halloween!” ~ Unknown.

This is Benny, the cat who terrorised the dogs in our street for many a year. Even after Benny died, local dogs were still too scared to come onto my property, some even crossed to the other side of the road or went home when they saw the gate posts.

He was not too impressed when I caught him sleeping with his dog, a stuffed toy that got carried around the house.

Not scary enough? Maybe this will get you a bit scared lol

Don’t worry it is only a tree

Blackfeather revisited

The Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds with Black Feathers

First off, let me explain the title. My High School dance, which was the last one we held at the High School Hall when I was in 5th Year, was one of the best ever. Only 6th and 5th Formers were allowed to attend and the band who played were one of the foremost Aussie groups at the time whose name was Blackfeather. They were such a great group that I was them many times and they had a few line-up changes and a bit of controversy. There is a few versions of this song, one has a sort of a classical piano introduction I think Lisa would enjoy but the quality isn’t all that good.

Here is one version that brings back memories of losing a girlfriend but another girl came into my life and awakened the future man in me.

OK enough of that stuff, here are some bird with black feathers.

It’s kinda over until next year

Day thirty-one of Becky’s Square Photo Challenge for October: Kindasquare

Yes another month of square fun is over. I looked for a bit of kind music and then just a song to match a kinda image took over. I do have a few songs left over but no photos this time. Photographers block set in a couple of days ago. I am writing this not knowing what photos to post so it looks like into the draft folder it goes until tomorrow.

The full length of this song is over fifteen minutes so I found a shortened version.

Just around for a short while to soak up the squares for October and 2020 and then I’ll be gone until the Squares return in January next year.

See you later

Here’s a finisher for Debbie 🙂 I have a few “Kind” songs left over and mentioned this to Debbie yesterday so though I should include this one just for her for Six Word Saturday
