until something expected happens,

or while something else is happening

Maggie being fed, meanwhile…

young Taji just gets a sniff

of the fare on offer.


At least a sniff is better than

waiting and watching.  🙂



Fandango’s One Word Challenge:   Meanwhile







bottom of something considered as its support

The majority of tall buildings/towers…

 …are supported by a base

which is wider than its top.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:   Base






expend or use less time, money, or material on something
than is necessary in an attempt to economize.
“don’t skimp on insurance when you book your holidays”
a fashionably short or revealing garment.
“she wore a yellow skimp”

Not many years ago this hemline…

…would have shocked everyone.

Now it is rather conservative.

The bikini clad sun lovers are borderline skimpy

by today’s standards.

As I don’t shoot many people in skimpy attire,

I  had too search photos like this to find…

to find any skimpy or not so skimpy clad

beach goers at Sydney’s Manly Beach.

Due to time zones I often feel,

or know, I am posting in arrears.

As I was writing my Arrears post

at 1700 hours Friday, May 03, 2019

I refreshed Fandango’s post/page and…

…the May 03 post appeared.

The ‘Finest’ post was posted

‘just after’ Midnight,

Pacific Standard Time.

So as Australia’s May 03 draws to a close,

inhabitants of Pacific Standard Time zone

have just commenced May 03.

If I do create a post for ‘finest’

it will not be posted until Sunday morning.

Well in arrears.
