Word-of-Day-Challenge-Theme

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

Dinner in Vienna saw us, if necessary…

…spending a penny in style…

…with raunchy retro themed décor

to  keep us company.

 

Décor and images strictly from…

…the sixties, fifties…

…and maybe even earlier.

 

For equal opportunity I believe ladies

was decorated in similar fashion. :-0

Word-of-Day-Minion

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

minion

a follower or underling of a powerful person,
especially a servile or unimportant one.


Labradors know very early on

that Kelpies are their minions.

 

I have yet to see a Kelpie recognise this simple fact

until they get a good sharp belting from

the Labrador in question. 

Candi received hers while I was in hospital in October 2019.   

She dragged a hind leg for around six weeks

and was subservient for several months thereafter. 

However, she commenced showing signs

of forgetfulness a few months back

and began to snapping at Taji again. 

It is only a mater of time before Round 2. 

Really, it’s a toss up which memory is shorter.

Candi’s or a gold fish.

Word-of-Day-Sprightly

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

sprightly


Ginger always moved in a sprightly manner,

so much so that we were certain she would outlive

Soxie the cat and Labrador Maggie.

Such was not to be the case.

Even during a lockdown…

…it is easy to part with one’s hard earned dollars. 

A small hardware store providing at the gate service. 

Great! 

I did not have to waste my time

wandering around trying to find

the items I wanted.

FOWChallenge-Swim

~~~~~

swim

*  propel the body through water by using the limbs,
or (in the case of a fish or other aquatic animal) by
using fins, tail, or other bodily movement.
*  be immersed in or covered with liquid.

****

It was difficult to tell which definition

Hippos were adhering to…

 

…if they were not actually swimming

they were certainly immersed in water.


These fish were a totally different story being

both immersed and swimming in,

their watery home in the lobby

of our Vancouver Island Hotel.
