The Prompt: Beach Skegness beach

A race to get ready
A race for all to leave
A race to beat the traffic jams
The queues you won’t believe!

A glimpse of sun up in the sky
A glimpse of flesh on the beach
A glimpse of ice cream on your shirt
The drop that the dog couldn’t reach!

A stroll with sand in between your toes
A stroll along the parade
A stroll with the wind in your hair
The thrill of the penny arcade!

A few hours spent at the seaside
A few moments of pure bliss
A few more smiling faces
The holidays were made for this.

Woof Wednesday: A Chip Off The Old Block

A few weeks ago, I told you the story of the local lost dog. I can’t imagine ever risking the loss of Brodie, Stella, or any future dog I share my life with by not having them microchipped. So, I was very supportive of the law introduced requiring the microchipping of all dogs in England from […]

Still In My Prime

Last Wednesday was Amazon Prime Day. A bit like Black Friday but just online and just for Amazon Prime Members of which I am one. I know some people felt a need to boycott them along with Starbucks et al when the tax hoo-ha thing came to light, but, I have always received excellent customer […]
