see[sic] - sailing the seven seas...


mediterranean sea,
adriatic sea,
arabian sea,
caspian sea,
black sea,
red sea,
nau sea[sick]


Listing seas - far safer than listing ships (listing ships are no joke, haha...)

- whilst on the subject (and I'm addressing both of you here) I myself am about to leave these shores for the best part of a relatively short time. Back on May 24. For the sake of us all, I shall be maintaining radio silence until I return. In the meantime, live well, take care risks - and (memo to self) easy on the dark chocolate rice cakes. They may be the healthy option, but not in bulk. Many thanks. Hasta pronto...

"I can't sleep at all
on my new waterbed - the
water's far too hard"...


- never heard of water softeners?...

kingdom for a horse," Richard
III, er, whispered...

go to town (and paint it red - with a pencil)


can't artists who need
the cash just sit down and draw
a huge salary?...


- what? and risk being framed? stick to miniatures...

the only course of action available: the sweet course


Dad gave me my just
desserts: lashings of cream. But
it didn't hurt. Much...

Somerset Levels, 2014 - the winter of floods...


2x2 was fine
for the Ark - round these parts you'll
need a 4x4...

diff'rent strokes...

dumb and dumber, numb and number - but not just any number...


1 day, maybe
2 morrow,
1 'll be gone...
4 good


...from numerals when your number's up to funerals...
