Level 3.4

….I’ve “become” a published author….

..you can “become” a published author to…

https://nullk.github.io/penguin.html

….(cackles maniacally and goes back to “publishing”)….

…(struggling to find a right way up image)….

…(ah – there we go)…..

…last one….

…(less sense?….damn, now that I have the covers and titles I was going to work on the content)…..

…(more maniacal laughter)…..

Lockdown 30

…running a bit late today…

…because I’ve been thinking….

…if ALL of the folk that love, support and would vote for the incumbent President of The United States were to take the stated dose…..

…would the world be a better place?

Lockdown 28

…a couple of days ago Dee pointed out, after a particularly gruelling safari in the garden, that bees and butterflies had discovered and were feeding off the fruit bits on the top of the compost heap…

…behaviour I’ve not noted before because I usually discard the household scraps shortly before I mow the lawns…(lawns not happening because- night shift)….

…we’ve tried for the last couple of days to photograph this, but or camera work and the co-operation of bugs was not what you would expect from a well run insect park….

,,,today that was slightly better….

…unfortunately these average efforts might be the end of it due to greatly increased sightings of flies and wasps….

…which is kinda why I was covering up the scraps in the first place….

Lockdown 27

….was burbling on about label makers in the comments section of a recent post when I remembered these… a pre-lockdown find at the local dump-shop….

…bargains at $4 each….

…could use those lovely bulging plastic frames for some form of art skullduggery…..

…then I noticed the over-labelling….

…kiwiana repurposed hand built diorama madness!…

…did they just make two?….

…did they have a little shop at the base of the mountain?….

…here they are out of the frames (carefully) for clarity….

….(and you all KNOW how conflicted I am….shall I peel the labels to see what they housed originally…should I be considering filling them with dioramas of my own?….how many more did the original perpetrator make?…do I have the whole set?….are these valuable examples of pre- mass produced kiwi keepsakes?…..soooo conflicted…did I mention “how many did they make”?)….

…(guess I could hang onto them till after lockdown….if you lean in real close and squint it’s almost like being in the mountains)….

Lockdown 23

…or….

…what to do with an informative brochure part 2….

….can’t do that at the moment….

…not that sort of a cataclysm…

…certainly…have one of mine….

…of course it’s used….

…”dunny” is antipodean for “toilet”…(or “bathroom” if you’d rather)….

…obviously…the material is a little thin…

….hmmm…

…(props to Dee for the collaboration on this appendix to the previous post)…

…and from the cheap seats…

…(and before you say anything, Frag’, all the seats here are cheap…there’s no charge for admission!)….

…(and everyone else who hasn’t already, you should drop by Frag’s awesome blog…er…blogs….here’s one now!…. https://fragglesotherplace.com ….enjoy!)….

…(am stoked someone else decided to play)…..(all further submissions will be considered by our team of expert bored folk)….

…thank you and goodnight…

Lockdown 22

…checked the mailbox today….first time in ages…(who even checks their letterbox any more?)…

…and bugger-me-days if that nice Jah-cinders hasn’t sent me a lockdown activity pack….

…I had to provide my own scissors….but she seems to have spared no expense on this wonderful time burning package…..

…let’s see what fun things we can do with it, shall we?….

…there…that’s 10 minutes that I don’t have to worry about finding ways to alleviate the seemingly endless tedium of having to stay home ALL the time…

…(hmmm…something tells me I may have peaked creatively before the lockdown ends)….

…(…did I buy enough toilet paper?…)….

Lockdown 15

…finished this last year….

…been saving it for a special occasion…

….like having a fruit eating gathering…

…(cancelled)….

…or international bowl day….

…(doesn’t exist)….

…or wearing it on my head because it’s the middle of the night and i’m bored ….

…..(image unavailable in your zone)….

…or celebrating being just over halfway thru lockdown…

…(mmmm….halfway thru lockdown)….

Lockdown 13

…beginning to feel like I’m living in an aquarium of my own making….

…but having taken a closer look at this photo’ I think I’ll be able to eek out a modicum of sanity for a short period of time by doing some dusting…

…um….

…naaah…

Lockdown 9

…the next day…

…wtf…

….a riddle wrapped up in a mystery, inside an enigma, hanging on a clothes line….

…that’s it….no more looking out windows for the duration….
