Magpie 105










THE END OF AN ERA

He's ready for a change now
And goes by the name of Mike.
He travels in a phone box
And occasionally by bike.

So if you see him drifting by
Up in the sky near you,
Please raise your glass and drink a toast:
"Goodbye to Dr. Who!"

(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales)

  13. Oh, Frances! You're on a roll! I love the first stanza. I truly miss the old phone booths where people had their conversations in private and we didn't have to listen in.

    Re: verification word
    Go to your main page, click "Design", then click "Settings" and on the second line you'll see "comments" and click that. Near the bottom of that page you'll see "word verification" on or off.
    Hope this helps.

  19. Good to know we can always come here for a chuckle.

    WV's. I find that Kay's advice applies only if you are using the "old style" blogger dashboard. I have hunted high and low on the "new" and can't find how to turn these wretched inkblots off. I sent "feedback" to Blogger complaining about them but no doubt I might as well cry in the wilderness. Frances knows I'm not a robot . . looks like "ronzone" and October. Here goes

  20. By now you have learned you need to be using the old style version of Blogger .. it's worth switching back, I promise.

  21. Thanks, eveyrone, and thanks too for the blogger advice. I don't know who invented all these ink blots but they are infuriating and quite unnecessary. After all, a robot wouln't be able to decipher the old VWs, so why make them even worse?
