Alphabe-Thursday - Things Around



Welcome to my post,


for Jenny's "Alphabe-Thursday" on her "Off on my tangent" blog, where we celebrate letters with words and stories and such.  Please enjoy my "T" post just for you!

Would you like to sail along with me?

Only adventurous souls need to apply, because I've noticed some odd events around town.  Some mysterious, but mostly charming sensations.   We'll feel like we're almost cut off from the rest of the world, before we return.

Don't be afraid of any giant bunnies you may see along our way.

We may experience a road block or two, but no worries, we'll swim like fish and continue up stream no matter what.

Remember, we have our eyes open for the main prize.

There are so many prizes waiting to be seized.

Quick, look behind you.  Do you see the secret castle climbing like a solitary island in a field of tall grass rising ever so gently all around it?

Are your eyes truly open?

I'm sorry where are my manners.  Is anyone else getting hungry with all this exciting adventure?

Are you ready for an incredible picnic lunch?

I know just the place.

I'll provide our lunch,

and the corkscrew, if you bring the wine and we'll take a lunch break okay?

Thank you for sailing with me today.  See you all next week okay?

We are blessed,
wandering around any corner.
You'll see!

Be sure to take a moment and enjoy my little lost friend.  What did the owl say to me?

Why do humans talk so much?

I very much like your town. It's hard for me to imagine the HUGE bottle of wine that opener is for, though. :)

How charming. The giant bunny and the corkscrew. What imagination! And the bricks in the wall. There is hope for our species when we make room for whimsy.

Karen S. said...

Sue, you are welcome. When you come along bring a copy of your lovely poem too! ha ha! Everyone will enjoy it!

Karen S. said...

EGCamera has to be a might large bottle with all of Jenny's friends along! ha ha!

Karen S. said...

Galen- You are so right....give me just enough whimsy to make us all almost as silly as the Mad Hatter, right!

Donna Heber said...

Thanks Karen, has been a beautiful ride. I've been delighted with the rabbit.

Gattina said...

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

I'm on my way with a nice bottle of wine!

Wendy said...

What colorful paddle boats. My husband and I were at a park once where there were paddle boats but no one manning them. A person nearby said, "Oh you just take them and bring them back." Great! We were about half-way across the little pond when the park ranger blasted on a bull-horn, "Please return the boat to the dock. Return immediately." I don't know what made us believe that person! We were mortified.

Make sure that wine breathes a little bit.

sage said...

You see some neat things on your adventures. That's a corkscrew for a king and that poor bunny. I missed the owl (was that in an earlier post, I'll have to go look, but then I already seen it!)

We should have tours like this more often. How fascinating! The garden with the fire pit looked like a great place for a get-together. Wonderful selection of photos! Thanks for sharing & visiting. See you next week!
