Feel free to tell us your thoughts.
They created a crossing over the river, that bended, bobbed and weaved gave it nice hot shiny rivets, to hold it together ending with a lick of paint to make it shiny then as the builders worked on their plots houses and houseboats appeared by the canalside even a big ship or three resting by the side of the water, so
when a new road was needed over the water a new crossing went, the road going over the water with ease. Opened by the king, queen or some other noble, they noticed the incredible way the bridges worked aiding naval ships and big trading vessels to get from a to b with ease
I go for books with a bit of character in them, Goscinny and Uderzos Asterix books were a favourite of mine as a kid – and I’ve now got my hands on six anniversary editions
My favourite author is Terry Pratchett, he created some brilliant characters. And I’m happy to say I had the pleasure of meeting the man himself at a Waterstones bookstore in Manchester, before his untimely death. One day i’ll have the nerve to pick up and read his final epic – the shepherds crown – but till then I’ll satisfy my discworld fever, by reading one of this lot (and the smaller paperbacks)
and when i’m bored with that (NEVER! sic) youll find me skimming through my comedy collection – The Goons, Monty Python, Morecambe and wise and Scott adams
Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge
now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl
But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split them open to get the colour you were looking for
But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour. In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…
lime jelly ? An acquired taste.
and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green lime
look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…
