IT'S BIRTHDAY TIME...

THIS IS OUR 300TH POST!!

Hello beasties!!

I know... I know... It's been a little while since out last post - but I've been away. This week we are celebrating our 300th post...

OH...
 
Can you believe that we've gotten there already? It's only taken 12 years!!!



It won't be our longest ever post, but it will be picturesque! I'm going to share with you a few photos from behind the scenes of my recent trip to Scotland, not to mention a new piece that I wrote during that trip.

Let's peruse the scenery, shall we?






Well, I hope you enjoyed that! Next time we'll be looking forward to photos from my recent trip to Madrid - and I have a short story to accompany that post too.



Before I depart, I'll leave you with a poem I wrote on Loch Ness on the 28th May 2014 about the Loch Ness Hamster!! There are even photos of me posing as aforementioned beasty! It's all very silly, but then nonsense is probably what I do best, after all.

More next time!

Take care... Yeti hugs,

Paul xx

THE LOCH NESS HAMSTER

The Loch Ness Hamster's -
Quite a Scot...
But is he a monster?
Well no, he's not.
He'll do his best -
To make folk flee...
But more usually -
He's full of glee...
His tail is long -
And badly knotted...
He tries to hide -
But soon is spotted!


The Loch Ness Hamster's -
Not a fright...
He's kinda puny -
Lacking might...
No, he'll not engulf you -
With his rage...
Just rides the wheel -
Within his cage...
It keeps him sane -
A calming sound...
Content to journey -
Around and round...


The Loch Ness Hamster's -
Far too clean...
He bares his teeth -
But he's not mean...
He's just too cuddly...
He's far too cute...
He doesn't snarl -
Remaining mute...
Which brings no fear -
Fails to disarm...
And yet it lends -
A certain charm...


The Loch Ness Hamster's
Much too sweet!
As beasties go -
He's not elite!
So very meek -
He's oh-so mild...
Why can't he be -
Just a little wild?
Yes, his teeth are sharp -
His back is hairy...
But no monster he -
The lad's nae scary!
