A Mid November Night

 It's Saturday night and I'm bored.

 I know . . . I'll invite Mom to a tug!

Hmm . . . not doing it for me.

That's what I want.

 I'll pin my ears back and put that pissed-off look on my face and then,

  I'll tilt my head and

 purse my lips ready for a good, old fashioned, ear-splitting bark.

 Naw, that's not really me.

I'm a good girl, I am.

Destination Deal

September was spent by the sea.
White Cliffs and Dover Castle are in view.

 Take the A258 at the round about,

 passed Markwood in Walmer,

 and the old Royal Marine Barracks on the left to

our seafront flat

in the charming

 Conservation Area

of 16th

and 17th century


Deal's award winning high street

with many new businesses

is a walk away along familiar footpaths from

Walmer Castle. 

But, it's for the sea  

and its rumbling tumbling pebbles which its waves draw back

 and its bright bleached sentries which its fishermen tend

 and its quietness so quiet

that we return.

thanks to
 John Reeves and Matthew Arnold

When You Must Be Still

Too many years in ballet class can . . .
ware away the cartilage in the joints.

Dr. Lu removed the resulting bone spurs, but rest was in order.
Goody! That meant . . . 

a couple of UFOs could be finished,

a 7 foot scarf could be completed,

a Christmas gift could be knitted
. . . and . . . 

Bandit is finally done!
