One size fits all

Evening at a cabaret. Four gentlemen, Grupa Mozarta, entertained us with classic snippets, classic renditions of rock/pop classics. They were funny, self-deprecating and obviously accomplished musicians with a cheeky sense of humour. Even the rain couldn’t dull the evening. Bravo, encore!28579443133_67500f834c_o

Mascara and Horses

The horse is a majestic animal, with power, grace and beauty combined. Horses have evolved over something like 50 million years from a small dog sized animal.

And now? Well now young girls and young ladies are putting mascara and eye makeup on horses. How degrading and simply down right silly for such a wonderful creature.

I have an idea! Maybe the same people could try, let’s say,

lipstick for lions

tints for tigers

powder for pythons

foundation for falcons

You get the idea;-)

…I just got home to find four Police Officers in my house looking for something, acting like lunatics!!!!! Even searching through my garage. They checked through the air-conditioner and inside my bed, tearing the mattress apart!!

When I asked if they had a search warrant, they answered completely hysterically:

“Where did you hide it?? We know it’s here somewhere!!”

Then I watched one of the Police officers look at his mobile phone and shouted.

” Stop it! We are in the wrong house!!!! The Pokémon is next door!!!”

Skateboard Fun and Smoothie

I am going to savour breakfast today, which will consist of the following delicious ingredients, mango, spinach, banana, flaxseed and milk. A combination loaded with Vitamin. C and antioxidants. More pertinently, scrumptious as well.

But I am kind of lucky to be having breakfast at home this mornin’ at all. As a tragedy almost played out before my road-trip gets going. Around 7.50pm yesterday evening young lady comes home full of fun and stories, just shedding possessions as she walks and talks. One possession, unbeknownst to me, was her Fiszka, a small fishtail shaped skateboard.

Bright orange with purple and wheels, you can’t miss it. Well actually you can.  On a few recent occasions I have been invited by young lady to get on the  skateboard/fiszka  and try it out. Take it from me, it is very fast and simply shot out from under my foot. I stated that I would be going nowhere near the contraption, thank you very much!

How wrong I was. Last night all were abed and one of my duties is to check the front door i locked. This I have done on numerous occasions, in the dark, quietly and safely. But last night the fiszka/skateboard lay in wait. One moment I was edging toward the door, the next my foot was in great pain and I was falling backwards.I had connected with the board, kicked it and half-trodden on it. I hobbled away, under immense self -control, and after explaining my accident took my bruised foot to bed.

The fiszka/skateboard is sitting and lookng at me this mornin’ almost with an air of, next time, next time;-) So that is how I can sit here and still enjoy me delicious smoothie breakfast with just a dull ache as a reminder.Beware the skateboard in the dark. You have been warnedIMG_0314
