    I totally agree with GZ, what a wonderful engaging writing style, I wish I had a sliver of your talent.
    Also think theres an art project lurking in this tale.... 'Paint DAkey's garden divas' (armed with spears etc of course)

    A tale worthy of Darby O'Gill DA. I got a good many pictures in my head reading and laughing. Thanks for letting us in on your doings.
    Be well,

    Fraser,

    Had you noticed the long necked Cloud Devil, with the forward facing horns, thrusting his head in from the top righthand corner of your bathroom. No wonder you are having problems.

    It is a well known fact that they live in the roof insulation of cottages in The Forest of Dean.

    I can't say better than the precedent Ragers did, I just have to read
    a second time all the tale, fabulous talent,
    I didn't laugh from longtime like this, You have all my sympathy , sure you'll manage.

    Do you know that there are some people who manage to mix the vegetables with ornamental flowers,
    I have no idea how,but I know that can be done.

    from April the house where I live is in under restoration and all day there are a lot of noises, I try to work in the night and then I can't sleep in the day ,
    but I did few escapes to Giverny , I had the flowers without the thorns
    and doing lazy pictures with Art Rage,
    like this one:




    Have an excellent Sunday and Summer time and the same wish for all Artragers friends

    It appears that we Ragers are torn; although we regret the circumstances leading to your posting, the posting itself is a testament to your wide-ranging (and highly entertaining) talents...an artist AND a wordsmith...

    Using an impressive pallete (language), you've wielded a well chosen array of tools (nouns, verbs, sentences, paragraphs, etc.) at varying sizes and degrees of pressure to create both a broadly drawn background and a detail rich foreground. Add to this your consummate skill at blending several layers of narrative intent (humor, adventure, pathos, etc.) with varying levels of opacity on a canvas (total length) that's neither too short nor too long...and the result is a well drawn tale worthy of praise (and a nice gilt edged frame!).

    Well done.
