Poem: Bloody Paparazzi.

. . . “Who the hell is that?” Is what they think now When they see their photograph. Inside, they still feel the same, So it is quite a shock sometimes. To see a human tortoise Gurning for the camera. It positively explains The dislike of the old For unauthorised photographs Taken by family paparazzi. […]

Find Out Your Cut-Off Date For Being Fertile.

Red Sky. . . Faint tinges of shell pink In the morning clouds Til suddenly they expanded Painting the whole sky red. It may be a sailor’s warning But it ambushes the emotions. . .

Up And At ‘Em.

The Fun Begins.

Hi, . Another fine day I have got myself into here. Blue sky, hot sunshine and it is ….what more could a person ask! . I wonder how many of you are packing for an imminent holiday. I wonder how many of you are heading out to Florida for some excellent wizardy-type fun. . Do […]
