The Monday Groan

Frog enters diner,
Waiter asks for his order.
“Flies and a croak, please.”

Let Off Lightly

Inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 8 November 2021, commute.

When the man was caught poor old wife’s money a-flashing,
Court originally sentenced ear bashing,
But they chose to commute,
The guy’s sentence acute,
And they sentence instead hundred lashings.

Strollin’ Out

Out for a walk in the New Forest yesterday. The southern part of the forest is wooded, as you might imagine a forest to be, but the northern half, where we live, is more heathland. In my cycling days, this was my go-to ride, early Saturday morning to remind me why I lived so far from London.

It’s interesting (honest!) because during the war, this area used to contain a bombing range. I explored it a few times on my mountain bike – it’s far away from the roads and you can only get there cross-country. You can still see concrete mock-ups of U-Boats, plus enormous targets that have been carved into the chalk. X really does mark the spot!

The acorn, what can I say? We went for a coffee afterwards! But doesn’t the sky look lovely at this time of year?
