Conversation overheard between 2 people standing right outside a newsagent, near the top of the main street of Castle Douglas:

“Excuse me, but is there a newsagents up here?” he asked.

“I think there’s one just down the road, the other side of the post office,” she replied.

Attempt at angst-ridden poetry:

Something dark
Something light
Something to think
Something to write
Brain is fuzzy
Mind’s gone blank
May as well
Just have a w… why thank you very much! A coffee would be lovely.

Questions asked in our pottery studio/art gallery:
do you know where I can buy pottery?
do you make the glass?
do you make the leather?

And I had no idea you were related to the man in the moon...

Kim Ayres said...

too much time on my hands...

Send me a side on pic of your MITM and I could give it a go for you :)

Mary Witzl said...

Please tell me you hastened to tell this man where the newsagents really was? (After you had a smile, of course...)

And I'll have a coffee too! Then maybe you can show me what to do with my website (just kidding: no publisher in sight yet!)

Great photo!

PI said...

Kim! I can't believe you just wrote that. Idle hands!

When I was a teenager I worked in Supa-snaps, we had photograph frames on display with pictures in them and a woman once held one up to me and said: 'I would buy this frame, but I don't know these people.'

Charlie said...

I don't understand it: I have oodles of time on my hands, and the more I have the busier I am.

Unfortunately, it doesn't earn me a penny . . .

Mary - I'm afraid it was one of those times when you only realise what it is you've heard, several steps later. Meanwhile, you should know I'll give you all the help I can if/when you need to get a website together :)

C in DC - thank you :)

Pat - better that I'm typing with them, surely...

Eryl - that is sublime :)

Charlie - my brother is sooo busy that he doesn't have time for anything, so does absolutely nothing...

Sandy said...

Hi Kim,

Kes (me other 'alf) says she likes your moon picture. Mind you she does spend half her time howling at the real thing (the moon that is)

Kim Ayres said...

Sandy - I'd rather someone howled at the moon than howled at me...
