  • I can’t help but like this addition to thoughts. Most of my blogging falls under the category of writing anyway. . .so what’s not to like?

  • It was like a scene from a social science fiction movie of the 50’s the day they came; a chapter from “War of the Worlds” or some other such fictional book written in the same era, but this was not the day of the […]

  • Cats don’t have to demand attention or preferential treatment. . .they just get it.

    When it comes to photography my brother could be considered as a ‘heavy-weight.’ He has sold many of his photographs in the past so he could be viewed as a professional. But with all things in life sometimes luck plays a hand, and lady luck certainly smiled upon him on that day.

    This is a picture of one of my brother’s cats taken by him on my camera! He asked if he could take a look at it so I passed it to him. As he was inspecting the camera one of his cats came in and sat centre stage […]

    • Actually, I tend to think your brother was lucky although If I managed to get the same effect, I would probably prefer to think it was my talent also. 🙂

    • Ha! Considering how quick cats lick their lips and sneeze….I say your brother had a lucky day.

      • LUCKY him. I have been trying to convince my son to print his photos on large canvas/metal/acrylic pieces to sell because his photos are amazing. But he won’t. He says he just takes photos for himself …his hobby. I get my photos printed on large pieces to give as gifts. it’s fun for me and people absolutely love them. How I know is that I see them hanging in their homes. But he is like me when it comes to art. I keep my art for me…..or I gift a piece now and again…..but it isn’t something I would do for a living.

    Welcome to thoughts, Incognito.

  • Forgive me, I don’t know the American education system that well, but 3 years in high school? That doesn’t seem very long for higher education. Did you leave early?

    Thank goodness I don’t have to endure the inter-politics of work, bosses, and colleagues anymore. Last year I retired early for health reasons, but apart from all that, I realised that when I retired I could have done it much sooner than I did. We had a really good pension scheme where I used to work – the best in the UK in fact, yes really! The…[Read more]

  • He looks like a completely different person. I think he’s a shape shifting alien!

  • I know exactly what you mean about Burl Ives. I can remember way back seeing him in a film when my siblings and I were just kids – a musical I think it was. He sang a song called “Ugly Bug Ball.” That was my introduction to Burl Ives. Ever since that time, when ever I saw Mr Ives again, he always looked the same!

    I’m glad he’s back safe and sound and. . .I hope he has nothing but good things to say about his time spent in England?

    Growls on standby!

    I knew how this was going to end before I read the ending. That is really sad and at the same time delivers a poignant message to us all. Fortunately, in my social bubble, I know of no one who has contracted Covid. . .yet. I just hope it stays that way.

  • I sometimes wander through the paths of my local nature reserve taking pictures as I go, it goes on for many miles in all directions and although I have walked much of it in the past, I have never reached the […]

    • It’s beautiful Jules. Tree’s are amazing. I love hiking through trees. To me they are mystical and magical. Old spirits.

  • Geeez. . .I looked at this during my morning wake-up tea and thought that it was from a spammer who used Ben’s name. After reading it and seeing Monica’s comment I realised it was genuine.

    Good luck with it all, Ben.

  • No fear of getting drunk on Friday – or any other day for that matter. I haven’t touched alcohol for years – and that comes from someone who used to make their own wine! I don’t miss it at all.

    Hello Scott, and welcome back to thoughts. Yes, settle down and write.

  • Very nice pictures of East Tennessee. Seeing pictures of places you’ve never been to always look different than how your imagination paints them.
