I post this for any readers who don't do facebook... don't want you to miss out on the best bits (someone posted the joke above earlier this week on FB and I shared it, as you do, and it's been making me smile for the last couple of days). Opinion seems divided online as to who drew it.. some say S.Harris but the signature doesn't match for me. Someone else says it's T Russell Harris and I think they're right. The signature looks more like it and you can see more of his work here.
The subject matter is relevant here too, in a way, because this week my wee girl leaves primary school... for good! Hard to believe for some - partly because she is still very wee - but still... on she goes (and p.s. lovely Canadian song about small things here). The induction days last week gave us a bit of a taste of what's to come (longer days, some getting lost, lots of new exciting things, a bit of terror...) and now we have the summer holidays to lie low and get prepared (and walk round and round the town until she can find her way round in her sleep!). And of course what I'd really like is this (click on it to enlarge):
Little h doesn't mind the rain (she sees it as an excuse to watch movies!) but I, for one, have had enough of the wet stuff by now. The photo above was taken in Ontario last summer (west of Thunder Bay) but according to Juliet Wilson (also on FB) the sun has actually been hiding in North West Scotland recently. Come east, old friend, come east!
Anyone got any exciting plans for the summer?
