A woman’s mind is cleaner than a man’s; she changes it more often.

– Oliver Herford


I’m sure all the men reading this are smiling while nodding in agreement! However, I think that women are much more flexible than men, being able to change their way of thinking when necessary; we can see more possibilities and multitask better.

Men get stuck with one thought and pursue it doggedly, even when they are wrong (which, of course, they always are!)



Do the Twist

LM Twist 1

Come on Baby; Let’s do the Twist.

LM Twist 2

Come on Baby; and it goes like this.

LM Twist 3

I’ve noticed lately that Little Monkey likes to rush outside as soon as she’s had her supper and rub her face all over the grass, with her bum in the air.

LM Twist 4

I’m pretty supple myself, but LM takes it to a whole new level!


post script: You can listen here to Chubby Checker sing The Twist. How high are the girls’ pants in the clip??


Sunday Musings #102

Some people are like clouds. When they go away, it’s a brighter day.

– Anon


While I’m sure we all know people like this, the reason for my quote today is because –

The Sun is Shining Brightly.

Looks like Spring has Sprung suddenly, as is its wont* here in Cape Town.

It’s a very pleasant 24C here today, with a promise of 28C tomorrow. But all is not bad news . . . We should get a little more rain after this burst of Spring sunshine. (We still have the drought.)


post script: Don’t you love that word “wont”? No it’s not a typo. It means a manner or action habitually employed.

Yes, I guess it’s rarely used these days, but that doesn’t mean it’s not awesome!

To get through the hardest journey, we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.

– Chinese Proverb


I have never done so much walking in all my life as I did during my recent UK trip. Not even as a student, when I used to walk everywhere; nor on my many walks with Little Monkey.

Even taking the bus involved a great deal of walking, as they didn’t always go exactly where I wanted and distances between stops were quite long: especially when I got off at the wrong stop!

Still, it was a good way to counteract all the extra goodies I was eating; so much so that I came back weighing less than when I left! Yay!


Tears of a Rose

The Tears of a Rose

Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.

– Bill


I’m taking a break for several weeks, so will see you all again next month.

Keep well and have fun while I’m gone and I’ll catch up with you later.

Cheers Scifi.
