Wordless Wednesday: Let’s Go Our Separate Ways

Yesterday, the always alone Woody wood stork, seemed to have finally found a friend. “Hey beautiful, how about a date this evening?”


Ms. Wilma wood stork, although quite flattered by his attentions, decided that he wasn’t quite handsome enough for her, besides which, her mother had warned her not to talk to strangers.  She replied as she stalked off, “Thanks but no thanks, Woody. You go your way and I’ll go mine.”


Nice try, Woody, Better luck next time.




Orange and green courting couple

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is about the colours of orange and green. I wasn’t sure what to post for this, whether a carrot or a pumpkin, but when I went over to inspect hubby’s progress on our ‘abandoned house renovation‘, I saw the ideal subject.

Out in the back yard two of our neighbours were doing a bit of courting. There was Iggy, resplendent in his bright orange suit.


When he spied pretty little Igua peeping out from the reeds, he decided to turn on the charm, by puffing up his dewlap and waving it around.


She came for a closer inspection, to see whether or not she fancied him.


Unfortunately for Iggy, she didn’t seem that impressed, and after only a few seconds of scrutinising his handsome face, she turned her back and moved on.


Poor Iggy looked really miffed and called after her, “Hey, what’s up babe? Aren’t I good enough for you?” Then he muttered under his breath, ” Sheesh …… all that effort for nothing! Some women just don’t know when they’re lucky.”


I wish you all a peaceful and relaxing weekend.
