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

Kinda playing with numbers

Day twenty-eight of Becky’s Square Photo Challenge for October: Kindasquare

I am inside on an off and on rainy day so I decided to play with some dice and my photo editing program Corel PaintShop Pro 2021. Again this was inspired by this song that came up on rotation. I have music playing a lot of the time I am inside and with nearly 4.5Gb of music on the hard drive there’s lots on rotation to pick from.

Do you prefer any of the following images?

This is the promotional image that was for the Tumbling Dice single. I had the original I cut out of a music magazine called Go Set in Australia. My best friend was a great artist and he did this copy for me. I found it a few years ago and now it is in my lounge room.
