Magpie 283




I am the wife of Nanki Poo,
With, sadly, not enough to do.
So I look at flowers
For hours.









(With thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for the picture)

    1. In that pose, Dee Dee, I'd be wondering if I'd ever straighten my neck again.

    2. Dee Dee, I suspect the anwer is, very little. Graham, you're right about the neck. Looks very uncomfortable.

  5. Love that Frances. I am happily not into operas though, so I will admit my ignorance about Nanki Poo. Would rather have a G&T any day.

    1. Ah, but you haven't tried G&S, have you, Maggie? Not quite the same, though, I have to admit.
