D is for Dog

The 19th of January, what is it like where you are? It has been howling a gale here and I awoke in the night thinking I was on a trawler. Over on A Curates Egg there is discussion about today being the most depressing day of the year.

I never did understand all that mathematical stuff, you see to me A is a letter. 2 is a number, simple eh. All that garbage they gave you to do at school, you know the one where they say if it takes 1 year for 8 men to do some small roadworks in France, then how long would it take for you to moan.
Well as it is supposed to be the bluest day of the year I will post a few blue pictures.

B is for Bubble



C is for Castle


S is for Sky

The French word for depressed is déprimé

The French word for trawler, you never know when it may come in handy is chalutier.

The French word for gale is tempete.......(there should be a chinamans hat over the second e but I need to go back and start Avisoft up.) ^

Etymology for the word blue.

D is, indeed, for Dog. Mum couldn't understand all that formula stuff either - until she started using Excel. Then she found out she loved it. But it's still gobbledegook to me. Love the bubble. xxx

Mathematical questions like that are things I am just unable to do. Mr FF however is never happier than when working out all those tricksy things - talk about chalk and cheese.

I love those blue pics, well I love all your photos but blue is my favourite colour and you do it so well :)

Hiya Henry

It's sunny and warm here. Should go for a walk, but I think I have allergies from cedars. Austin is one of the worst cities for allergies. Your castle reflection picture is like a painting.
