Unusual for the runt of the litter to be top of the pile

Not used to being top of the tree

Destiny wasn’t really set out for this dog, but

Expect a surprise, for while you write him off this

Right little talented animal is

Doing his thing in front of the tv judges – and

Of course – there’s one of them who’s looking for “That special act”

Got to agree – every dog, has it’s day


Paint 🎨


proud little toddler, parades his masterpiece

as mum and dad peruse the aftermath

in consideration, there really is more colour on the paper and

not the wall, now scattered in the maestros colours

together they smile…as the soapy water will be out after bedtime

Jams and Jaguars


A couple of photos taken from sessions at BASIC Clicks, the photography group i belong to at the Brain and Spinal injury centre in Salford


for starters – here’s the Jaguar .


And here’s some pics of some Jam (Raspberry) and Lemon curd, common thread ? all items were photographed at BASIC. The Jams were made at Food for Thought, BASICs Cafe – they’re tasty on a piece of toast or a crumpet!

Autumn 🍁

I watched in sight as the winds did play

And leaves 🍁 of all kinds did dance away

Round in a reel down Salford’s streets

creating patterns for a treat

And as the leaves did turn and move

They made up a pattern in a musical groove

As pigeons and squirrels played in leaves for a while

Diving around in the masses of leaves that made piles.
