“The one above sees all”
An old saying that once was dropped at exactly the right moment to put me off chess for life. I had the bugger in a trap—he didn’t know it but the enthusiast doing the twitchy spectator bit just couldn’t resist. Not only did my alerted target escape, he won … and lacking a sense of humour I resolved never to be in that situation again.
BUT IN THE MEANTIME
do the all see the one above?
In a nice cosy cage, yes. No probs.
In the wild?
Hah~! I challenge anyone to spot one of these—
—in the wild. He dwells atop his rock and as motionless as the rock itself, for hours if need be. But when the moment comes you’d be very lucky to see him move. (They just disappear, and reappear elsewhere, filling in the gap between with an ethereal blur.)
Tempted to put in a photo of a kids’ spinning toy, but lacking one, I opted instead for some quite attractive bubbley goo—
—which for the life of me I have no idea what, why, when, where, or how (the ‘who’ is irrelevant). But it was atop something in the garden containing fester-water (so it’s legal for this Challenge).
I HATE WITH A DEEP VIBRATING
passion the folks who demolish much loved structures like this—
but can see why they do it. It’s the very PC (ergo essential) thing to do and no city-hall guy wanting to keep his snout in the trough would dare be me.
And I wouldn’t last long either …
This wondrous edifice is what they replaced it with. No sharps, no head-bonkers, lovely soft artificial soft stuff to softly land on softly should you manage—somehow—to fall out.
I had the park to myself (kids don’t seem to come here any more)(not unless brought by adults) and climbed it, this is the view from the summit once atop—
—all the bars you can eat. Floor to ceiling, wall to wall … I remember when I climbed the old one, not as flexible (me) as the ascent required and I managed to bang the old swede a couple of times but it was fun. And a bit of a challenge …
I didn’t enjoy the new one at all so I must be showing my vintage. Yeuch. And now having managed to depress myself I shall go and get atop a pile of chocolate … don’t wait up, I may be some time …
