The spaces between the blocks.
The chinks between the pavers,
The pauses between the moments.
The years between encounters.
That simply take your breath away.
Not always in a good way, either. Sometimes there is infinite sadness. With luck it will be fleeting.
Sometimes there is utter joy. Sadly, that is often fleeting also.
Here are some of the chinks & moments caught on film.
V with Gom & Honey, taken about 4 years ago, when V & her husband P, came to stay with us.
Here is V & P.
Here the time warp really shows. Meggie with V & P, who were fairly newly weds. We were off to see The Sound of Music. This pic is 43 years old.
I was a reluctant 3rd for the film. I disliked Julie Andrews
I know, what was to dislike? but there you go, & I have never liked her in anything else though I grudgingly admit, she did the role justice in that film. I don't know how V had managed to talk P into going, but even he enjoyed the movie. I don't know where Gom was at that stage. However, I am sure he would not have been invited, being Highly Unsuitable Suitor, back in the day. haha.
Now he can do no wrong, haha.
These next pics are of some of the breathtaking moments that make my life seem wonderful.
This gorgeous little Grandson of my brother's. He is just over 5 months old. He still has his blue eyes, to the surprise of his brown eyed parents!
I just love this photo! I wish I could just cuddle him!
Here is my little Angel. I can cuddle him, & I do, at every chance. I know the time is fast approaching when he wont be so readily cuddlable. Here he is teaching his father some intracacies of a small electronic game.
Here is the calm of the sea, at Newcastle, as a ship came to port. The wind was quite chill.
In other exciting thrilling news, I am now to have lighting of the Groin!! My mind boggles. When I told the Professor my armpits & groin still itch, he smiled & told me they have ways for that!
Oh joy. That will be today's treat- learning exactly how that will work. Now I am regretting mentioning it!
In other sodding news, we think there may really be some animal dead in our ceiling cavity this time. The smell yesterday was terrible, but seemed to dissipate in the evening, & I wondered if Gom had sneaked in to remove some hideous 'parcel' from his pants pocket or jacket, in his wardrobe.
He assured me he had not, so it is a mystery. I saw evidence of mouse activity in the poisons bait we keep in the back of the stove alcove, & so have spent some time cleaning it out, & getting more baits outdoors.
We had visitors who all trooped in to smell the vileness, then pronounce just what they thought might be the cause.
Hot Chocolate, Any song will do!!
