To live where weather's wild and raw
You must be mad, or really poor.
But if there you must reside
You'd better take your bike inside,
And quickly shut the bloody door!?
Thanks Tess, nice to find you are still here after my sabbatical. And thanks for another wonderful prompt.

I love this, Stafford. In fact, I shared it on Facebook which is a rare action for me. I hope it goes viral but, sadly, I don't think anyone follows me on Facebook!ReplyDelete
Oh yes we do!!!Delete
I shared it on Facebook, too. To quote Arlo Guthrie, "what we got here is a revolution!"ReplyDelete
Love it Ford! Saw this on Facebook...hope you link to Magpie, too...nice to see you back!ReplyDelete
My sentiments exactly. I grew up in blizzard country. And I'm never tempted to visit there again in winter. A few times I've had to go then (e.g. when one or other of my parents was sick). But my consolation when they had both died: At least I never have to deal with a northern winter again! It may look very charming in pictures. But try falling through thin ice into an icy pond. Or driving 50 miles through a Maine forest with a baby in the car and a broken car heater. My body was designed for Queensland weather, I've decided. Anything else leaves me cold.....literally!ReplyDelete
I bet you're glad you are not back there this week! Brrrrr!Delete
Batten down the hatches! I've experienced extremes, still looking for that perfect locale ... which may or may not exist!ReplyDelete
excellent Stafford- nice to see you back on Magpie! Didn't realize you were on FB also! Cheers!ReplyDelete
Not really on Facebook, still don't understand all the pitfalls!Delete
Gday Staff , happy new year , great to see you materialising crom the electronic aethers to once again assume discernible form, like Ursula Andress emerging from the sea in DR No .....by the way i dont think your link to magpies worked , unless the operation was successful and you now call yourself "Bekkie" or "Letitia"ReplyDelete
I've always wanted to live in a light house but I think the wind would get to me eventually - love your limerick Stafford :DReplyDelete
Enjoyed that. By the way your comment on my blog was caught in my spam filter for some reason, but now rectified.ReplyDelete
I can picture him on a calm day circling that house....! I'd still need a map, mind you! Nice to have you back, Stafford!ReplyDelete
