TAKE A WORD


HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU!

We have TWO as our word for inspiration this week at Take a Word and that reminded me of the two little problems I encountered recently. 

There is a room in our house we don't advise you to enter.  It has a notice : PLEASE DON'T OPEN THIS DOOR and just to be doubly sure we keep it locked and chained at all times.  But a week last Tuesday I heard noises, a sort of creaking and soft shuffling and the odd cough, which prompted me to investigate.  Slipping out of the house I peeped into the window of the forbidden room and sure enough the door was ajar and the mad uncles were looking right back out at me.  I couldn't be sure but I think they had been shopping for new hats!

Thank you for looking.

I was glad that your twins were not identical. Two minds think alike .Either were mine. Or perhaps yours were not to be.

Your art work is fabulous as always. Thumbs up.

My entry is in today. Top in my blog.

What a pair of mad uncles. Could it be the one on the left has the right eye of the one on the right in his fist? Hmmm What a puzzlement! Fun and quirky, Ann!!!
