Granny and the beach

Hello All.

Look closely at the pic.
Those are worms.
Thousands and thousands of worms.
I can only deduce they came from the kelp.
And the abnormally warm weather we are having.
I tried my best to avoid them.
I played hopscotch all along the beach.
I tried walking in the water but the tide was coming in and washing the worms out.
And, as I cannot walk ON water, I just had to grin and bare it.(spelling intended)

There was a full moon when I came to work this morning.
It feels wrong to see see the moon when you are going to work.
I felt I should have been going to bed.

The next pic was taken by a friend of mine.
Remember I mentioned that Cape Town had vanished under a think bank of cloud?
Well, here is it.

Considering it was taken on a cellphone it is not bad.
It is taken from the top of the mountain.
There is a city under that cloud!

Should I put another Swaziland picture on.
Hell, why not.

And now let me get back to work.

Have a great day all.


  1. Eweww! Yuk! How about a warning in the heading next time?

    It’s a good job you’re a funny granny or I’d have to have a strop.
