Afternoon all. How are you doing today? A much better day weatherwise - when the weatherman said yesterday would be showers between the sunshine, I didn't think he meant the sunshine on Friday and Sunday! It was wet from start to finish - but it does mean that Toad's pet pumpkin got a good watering. I am slightly worried, it is starting to take over the garden. It was confined to one corner but now it has grown across the back of the raised bed, down the side, shot off towards the shed, turned the corner and is now heading towards the house. Is there such a thing as death by pumpkin I wonder?
Thank you for all your kind words yesterday in respect of my Wee Stamps Spotlight - it is good to feel so loved.
Back down to earth today and something odd for you. You'll see what I mean in a moment. But first, how many TOGS are there still out there? On the rare occasions that I used to drive to work, I always tuned in to Radio 2 to catch the Wordmeister, Sir Terry Wogan. I used to giggle so much that it is a wonder that I didn't either wet myself or cause an accident. One of his little quips (that I admit, took me a while to work out) was Time flies like an arrow, Fruit flies like a banana. Now it makes me chuckle every time I think of it and I was determined to get it onto a card somehow.
And I've done it!

Isn't he just so much fun? I think it is the goofy grin that does it.
I masked him to do the clouds with Eclipse Masking and I will hold my hands up to say it was a close call with his alarm bells and his tail as to whether he made it in one piece, but he did!
So that's me done for today. I will try to squeeze in some visits between my roast dinner and bedtime as I know I am well overdue with popping round to see some of you.
Biggest of hugs
