an instrument for weighing,
originally a simple balance ( a pair of scales )
but now usually a device with an electronic
or other internal weighing mechanism.


each of the small, thin horny or bony plates
protecting the skin of fish and reptiles,
typically overlapping one another.

Scales on our friendly…



Blue Tongue Lizard.

It has  been living under oour front verandah.

However,  hasn’t been sighted for a while,

Although our neighbour speaks of a

Blue Tongue living near his shed.


A few years back Candi was barking

madly at this dead snake.

Either I ran over it while cutting grass or a predator

had dropped it from a great height.




My first thought upon seeing the week’s challenge.
