When I was a kid…..

…..my mum used to send me to the corner shop down the end of our street with a ten-bob note. I’d bring back half a dozen eggs, 2 pints of milk, a loaf of unsliced bread, a 5lb sack of potatoes and as a treat, a small paper bag with lollies for me.

You can’t get all of that for ten bob now-a-days…….

Too many cameras.

Faces

The February Photo a Day Challenge 4th: Faces

I see faces almost everywhere
The unfortunately named Jap Pumpkin 190322_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_looks_like_face_pumpkin
“It may just be an old wives’ tale, but it is said that Jap pumpkin derived its name from growers who weren’t sure of how to market it, so they chose the acronym of Just Another Pumpkin!”

Bubbles

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Blast
The Daily Word Prompt: Copious
All was going to plan. A romantic getaway, a wonderful dinner in the restaurant, soft music, candles lit around the room, hot water running for the bath and then “someone” decided to add some lovely smelling scented bubble bath.
It was then the blast occurred. The spa jets turned on and copious amounts of bubbles appeared, exploding their way out of the bath and onto the floor with no way of holding back the tide.
181101_blog challenge_just for fun_bubble bath1
Worried…..no.
Laugh a lot….yes.
So when an artist and photographer get together to assess the situation and work out what to do……
1. Do they try to mop the floor?
2. Turn off the spa jets?
3. Do they summon assistance?
4. Make the best of the situation? or
5. Do the creative thing they always seem to do when they are out and about?

 

 

If you answered yes to 5, you are correct
