Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

My mother has a dog.

My mother loves her dog….Rocky, Son of Spike!

They are rarely apart and rumour has it that  Rocky, Son of Spike, is actually a human in heavy disguise!!!

Here he is relaxing next to my mum in the evening!!

"If I lie like this, " said Rocky, Son of Spike to himself, "it makes my ears stick up like alsatians ears do!"

“If I lie like this, ” said Rocky, Son of Spike to himself, “it makes my ears stick up like alsatians ears do!”

 

"Blimey. that light's bright on your camera sister of mine!!" commented Rocky, Son of Spike, to me! SISTER??? I don't think so!!

The Right Reverend Duck-Part 3

Well we left The Right Reverend Duck, Dilly the Divine and the somewhat saucy and lusty other ducks in a bit of a strange way yesterday with so many unanswered questions!

Will we find answers today? (You might have to catch up with my 2 previous blogs to find out just what needs answering!)

Read on!

The Right Reverende Duck managed to dodge past Dark Duck Dave and got to the other side of the canal. Sadly it seemed he hadn't learned any lessons and certainly didn't understand that he needed to update his thinking and perhaps allow people to behave as they thought best!

The Right Reverend Duck managed to dodge past Dark Duck Dave and got to the other side of the canal. Sadly it seemed he hadn’t learned any lessons and certainly didn’t understand that he needed to update his thinking and perhaps allow people to behave as they thought best! Yes, you’ve guessed it….he reared up into that old familiar preachy stance!

It was then that he heard an incredibly loud booming voice which almost parted his feathers…..

Minister Muscovy Lord High Duck appeared with his red face blazing out great authority in the direction of the Right Reverend Duck! "PUT YOUR WINGS DOWN AND PULL YOUR NECK IN!" he commanded!

Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck appeared with his red face blazing out great authority in the direction of the Right Reverend Duck! “PUT YOUR WINGS DOWN AND PULL YOUR NECK IN!” he commanded!

Very quickly The Right Reverend Duck complied!

Very quickly The Right Reverend Duck complied!

"Now young man-your zeal and fervour are interesting and a little compelling! However, " continued Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck, "You cannot make people live as you want them to, they can only live their own lives!"

“Now young man-your zeal and fervour are interesting and a little compelling! However, ” continued Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck, “You cannot make people live as you want them to, they can only live their own lives!”

Sometime later Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck finally got to the bottom of the vigour with which The Right Reverend Duck was pursuing abstinence for all and sundry….yes, that’s right…..He didn’t think that Dilly the Divine shared his feelings and was jealous of anyone who appeared to be getting something he wasn’t!!

Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck got The Right Reverend Duck and Dilly the Divine to have a meeting….

The Right Reverend Duck came over all shy!

The Right Reverend Duck came over all shy!

So did Dilly the Divine!

So did Dilly the Divine!

Then with a slight shove from Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck off they both flew on their journey of discovery!

Minister Muscovy the Lord High Duck couldn't help but feel a little smug at the outcome!

And now we find two happy (and satisfied!) ducks…..

Ahhhhhh!

Ahhhhhh!

And LOOK…..not long later…..

Sweet!

Sweet!

I expect there’s a moral?

That’s All!

The right Reverend Duck Part 2

 Following on from yesterday Part 1…..

So we left a rather upset The Right Reverend Duck yesterday….foiled in his attempts to stop the young ducks from following the itch that has to be scratched and their lusty urges!

If you remember (or not!), he saw someone flying in from the skies above, someone who might be able to help him in his quest…..

"I'm here Right Reverend, I'm here!" quacked Dilly the Divine, "We must join forces to help with these youngsters souls...."

“I’m here The Right Reverend, I’m here!” quacked Dilly the Divine, “We must join forces to help with these youngsters souls….”

 

And with that Dilly the Divine turned and began to preach..."Ducks and ducklings, I beseech you, listen to our wisdom, harken to our voices...."

And with that Dilly the Divine turned and began to preach…”Ducks and ducklings, I beseech you, listen to our wisdom, harken to our voices….”

But before she could get much further, along came Dark Duck Dave who proceeded to chase poor Dilly the Divine across the canal!

Expertly Dark Duck Dave hurtled through the water managing to give The Right Reverend Duck quite a soaking on the way!

Expertly Dark Duck Dave hurtled through the water after Dilly the Divine, managing to give The Right Reverend Duck quite a soaking on the way!

Never to be left out of any excitement….

Delilah decided to join in the chase......

Delilah decided to join in the chase……

 

PoorDilly the Divine couldn’t quite make it out of the water…

"Quack!' said Dilly the Divine sadly and with a bit of pain in her chest!

“Quack!’ said Dilly the Divine sadly and with a bit of pain in her chest!

 

The Right reverend Duck could only call across the water in a plaintiff wail..."Dilly, oh Dilly!"

The Right reverend Duck could only call across the water in a plaintiff wail…”Dilly, oh Dilly!”

 

What will be the outcome? Will those lascivious young ducks heed the warnings?

Will The Right Reverend Duck realise he is in love with Dilly the Divine and finally allow himself some pleasure??

Will the pain in Dilly the Divine’s chest be anything more than a bruise from the canal edging?

Come back tomorrow to find out!!

That’s All!

The Right Reverend Duck-Part 1

Strange happenings by the canal….much flapping and quacking was heard….what could possibly be going on??

The Right Reverend Duck was nervous...he flexed his wings in preparation....

He practised looking powerful and in command.....

He settled-slightly!

He knew he wasn’t ready yet….

He turner a little to the left and drew himself up.....

He tested out his wing point, the one that he had been perfecting over the last few weeks!

He tested out his wing point, the one that he had been perfecting over the last few weeks, the one  which would emphasize his sermon subtext to anyone unfortunate enough to not be listening!

 

And tried to find that space in his head that would finally ready him for the task ahead!

And tried to find that space in his head which would finally ready him for the task ahead!

This was his moment….

"Ducks, Drakes and all Water Fowl which liveth on this canal...I have important words, words of life for you....." quacked The Right Reverend Duck!

“Ducks, Drakes and all Water Fowl which liveth on this canal…I have important words, words of life for you…..” quacked The Right Reverend Duck!

"Lift your wings to the Almighty Duck in the sky and forsake this late spring time behaviour of lust and polygamy. Do not give in to the temptations of a moments pleasure......" he continued!

“Lift your wings to the Almighty Duck in the sky and forsake this early summertime behaviour of lust and polygamy. Do not give in to the temptations of a moment of pleasure……” he continued, “Remember the wife/husband of your youth…..”

But me oh my….just look at the reaction he got…..

There was an enormous amount of splashing and quacking and a loud voice shouting "Don't you come down here a preachin' and a hollerin' about our behaviour...why we're only doing what ducks have always done....and I for one ain't gonna listen to your preachy nonsense Mr. The Right Reverend Duck!" squawked Delilah the Dirty (as she was known to her friends...her reputation always going in front of her!)

Delilah turned with a flourish and splish sploshed her way off!

Delilah turned with a flourish and splish sploshed away to get to yet another saucy assignation!

 

The Right Reverend Duck spun around a little, both in horror at this reaction and in hope of someone who would stand with him against such sinful behaviour......

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

Aha…well the world though my eyes is sometimes upside down, it’s sometimes back to front  and it’s often hard to make out what is going on.

So, with that in mind I present to you “Raindrops on the washing line”…..

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

 

I love looking at things in detail, particularly close ups of nature.

So, after chasing after many of these little dragonflies only to be thwarted when I caught up with them as I watched them fly off, I was very pleased to get one good photo!

This one was about an inch and a half long…..

Dee Dee Dragonfly giggled as she thought of the merry dance she had led that odd photographer woman. It was the least she could do to let her get one photo!

I rather like this theme!

So here are lots of curvaceous photos!

"Huh!" ribbited Franco crossly, "She was going to put me in last week's challenge of 'flow', thinking it would be witty to have me looking for a flow in her garden! But NO! That wasn't good enough, so here I am, after a week's wait in the 'curves' challenge! I always thought I was angularly good looking myself!"
