a loud, unpleasant, and prolonged noise.

There appears to be much

discussion‘ going on here.

Had this incident occurred after dark

it would most certainly be considered a din.

In fact any noise which disturbs my erratic sleep

is considered a din. 😊😊

a structure of bars or wires in which birds
or other animals are confined.

Our vet told us to keep young Taji ‘quiet’

for a few weeks after her operation.

Some weld mesh, wire netting and some iron pegs

and I quickly created a temporary pen

to limit her physical activity.

Taji did not receive the ‘quiet’ message.

She spent all her lockdown time with her

front paws stretched up as high as she could.

 She just did not seem to notice

the line of stitches in her belly.

When she wasn’t stretching she sat with a

‘let me out of this damn cage’

expression on her face.

According to my iPad…

…I spend 3-4  hours per day online.

This time does include reading time of

one to three hours per day.

Usually one to two hours average.

Ninety percent of reading time

takes place between 2200 and 0200 hours.

However, iPad time, generally,

does not include blogging time.

Fandango’s One Word Challenge:   Odd






inscribe or write something

Many countries to the north of Australia have languages

which consist of many characters.

A Chinese student once told me that

the language he spoke at home

consisted of 1,900 of these characters.

He went on to add that he only

used around 200 characters.



I have often heard old buildings described

as having character when compare to

the sterile lines of modern architecture.



The door may not be old however,

the cast or wrought iron is in keeping

with the character of the building

in Melbourne.
