"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission."
I love pictures of cows. Let me explain.....
We were at the theatre many years ago, and the main character called his wife 'Moo'. When asked, 'Why do you call her Moo?' he answered, 'Well it's better than 'bloody cow' isn't it? This tickled Neil's funny bone and ever since I've been his 'Moo'. I even sign my art work 'Moo' (when I remember).
So I had to jump out of the car and take this photograph in Oz!Two 'giggles' for the price of one today!!!
I found Ronni's blog yesterday and am stealing her idea of a 'book meme' post.
So, here are the rules:
1.) Pick up the nearest book of (at least 123 pages).
2.) Open the book to page 123.
3.) Find the fifth sentence.
4.) Post the next three sentences.
5.) Tag five people.
I have just started reading 'Ma, he sold me for a few cigarettes' by Martha Long
"....Get back on the street where I found ye."
I put the coat on me, an it went down te me shoes. Then he lifted me by the neck, opened the door, an roared,'get back on the streets. An if I ever see ye aroun, ye're fuckin dead!"
Mmmm, interesting as we are possibly looking at a case of paternal abuse at school right now, which Bev is most concerned about. A message maybe?
I invite the following people to try their hand at this:
What the hell, I invite all of you reading this post to have a go......

" I wonder if this thermal undersuit really kept him warm...the water was 6 degrees celsius today!"
"What the hell are these?"
"Oh no, he's hung himself!!!"
"Phew, it's only the diving suit hanging up to dry.
Dry! In this weather? He's mad!"
"And what the hell are these?
Can I please have my garden back?"
(another one of my abo art drawings I did while in Oz in december)
So today I say 'declutter/deshmutter' -I have more important things to do than tidying up!
1.)Go for a long walk before the rain comes back. We've had a balmy week here in London, not balmy warm, but balmy sunny. Also, I twisted my left ankle 2 weeks ago, and it still gives me twinges when coming down the stairs, and my left knee where I pulled the cartilage last year is playing up again, so need to walkmuch more and do some stretches.
2.) Fetch the dry cleaning, post some letters, walk the dog , go to the library, all can be done while I'm out.
3.) Paint some more 'giggles' pics.
4.) Start my new book, 'Ma, he sold me for a few cigarettes'. (a heart-rending memoir that will both horrify and inspire)
5.) Make some macaroni cheese for Neil for lunch as he's gone diving (it's our half term week, so we're off school till Monday).
Declutter/deshmutter is all I say!!!

So I immediately adoted a baby gorilla, after reading about the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
And I adopted one for you Lolo, cos of all the wonderful work you do with animals; and one for you Debs in memory of all those lovely snakes you lost last year.
Evidently orphaned babies are taken into care and looked after round the clock. If we can help one of these little sweetie pies, then I am happy.

I think this is a great way to circulate some of the older posts everyone has written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn something about others that we may not know.
