Kidnapped for ransom.

.

















I’m up to my nipples in sand,
The tide’s coming in again and
This time, I’m afraid
You win, Tess Kincaid
I’ll give you the five hundred grand!

Take the risk and visit Tess at Magpie Tales  but run if she's toting a shovel!

  4. The picture looks like one of those leadership/initiative tests given to potential officers in the forces. I think your solution is great, Stafford. I hope Tess is listening.

  8. what with the tatts and the kidnapping, I reckon she is a pirate.

    I noticed you're in Sydney now - wave hello to the Harbour for me, please? It's such a long time since I've been home ...

  10. Dear Stafford: This was very fourth wall-ish; very out of the box, and off the wall; so very creative and in my face! A smack dab bit o' reality bite! Loved it! Chiccoreal

  13. Christine, people have been known to die laughing, so a bit of advice:

    If ‘nipples’ brings on a Ho-Ho-er,
    And buttons on bellies another,
    If you’re still about
    When he is dug out,
    You’d better not look any lower!

  16. Hi Stafford,
    I left a comment on your post of the sewing machine, but I think it got lost...
