Castles in the sky

Sunday 7:46 am. The view from my sofa.

Sunday 10:45 am. Lo, she is a terrible Goddess announces she’s found me a boat!

Sunday 11:23 am. Lo, she is a terrible Goddess  shows me the boat.


Sunday 11:24 am. I decide to have another glass of brandy.

Sunday 18:21 pm. What happened?

I tell you, I’m on the edge. [Fig. very anxious and about to become distraught; on the verge of becoming irrational.]

    The boat looks rougher than I do … probably the bottom needs scraping as well …

    I spent today in used car lots with a friend who is buying… and this story makes me feel better about it, somehow.

    Oh I like the piccy too!

    Surely you could convince someone to take you out on their boat… perhaps you could offer your services or a morning brandy! 😛 THis is starting to remind me of a scene from It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. The one where the two guys get a brandy-loving pilot to fly them… Lol.. Do you know that scene??!!

    daddyp replied:

    I don’t I’m afraid … sorry. *starts feeling faint at the thought of giving away brandy*

    I bet the boat looked a lot better after having some brandy.

    daddyp replied:

    Not really … life took on a rosy glow though …

    That is a boat. A small boat. Was the snifter of brandy the same size?

    daddyp replied:

    Your powers of observation are astounding … and I’m not quite sure how to answer your question. I think I’ll plump for no.

    An eco-friendly boat. No gas needed. Maybe if you sit still, the wind would push it along.

    Are you going to pack it in your suitcase and take it home? It’s a nice little boat.

    daddyp replied:

    Having beans for tea so should be able to provide the wind … whooooooooooooooooosh

    🙂 Me likes the boat, and the castle shot is awesome.

    daddyp replied:

    The castles hung around for ages which was just as well as I couldn’t find the camera and then the battery needed changing and there were also demands for cups of tea from you know who …
