Here is a song that I have loved since I first heard it. An Australian group of schoolkids, King Fox, won a Battle of the Bands doing a version of this song.
OK….now onto my Knight of the Rooves Always there, brandishing his fearful very spikey whatsit guarding the roof tops of Paris. Sir Tuyau de Cheminée has many other guards ready to go at the first sign of trouble.
All lined up, their steely gaze seems to just drift over your head. You decide to go remembering what has been said turn to loook one more time One day things will get hot around here
Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge Week 5: Count Chimneys
There are lots
Some are in a line
This one is quite tall
There are others that can look quite fierce
Or even like Ned Kelly
Ned Kelly, for those who are perplexed, was a notorious bushranger, an Australian rural outlaw of the 19th Century.
Kelly made a suit of armour

This chimney pot in Paris reminded me of Ned Kelly
The fireplace of a good friend who lived down the road. He built his house from rock and timber on the land. I went back to see what had happened to his place years after he had moved and later died before his wife sold the property. A lot of the house had rotted away, exposing the place to the elements. Of everything, the kitchen fireplace remained.
