PICK AND MIX...

Friday Favourite taken from a Venetian gondola

Things in a row.... for Pat

And a little rhyme I wrote sometime last year

Green light says Go

Indicate, turn right

Foot down, hurrying

Home for the night

Ball speeds towards him

Just a game

Football crazy,

Future fame?

Parents shed tears

On fragrant flowers

He wouldn’t be told

That son of ours

Who can they blame?

Who was remiss?

There should be a law

To stop upsets

Hi Valerie,

I was...
Delighted( Venise; aaahhh.
Amused by the colors
Saddened by your moving poem.

I have felt a lot just in a few minutes :))

Have a happy Friday & weekend.

Just what I would expect from a Mixed Bag of Pick And Mix - images to delight me, words to warn me.

I had a "mixed bag" of emotions with this post.

That first photo - longing. I'd love to go to Venice! Hello bucket list!

The second photo - happy! Made me smile with all the colors. I love kitchen gadgets and such. And I'm happy you joined in for Things in a ROw.

And the poem made me sad. Nicely written though.

Beautifully composed poem, Valerie!

Sooooo talented you are!

LOVE your pics too! One of these days I MUST get to Italy because every time I see a photo....I swoon!

LOVE the colors in your second shot!

Thanks for sharing, dear lady.

Really enjoyed this post!

Have a super-duper weekend!

Hi all. When I posted this I didn't realise it was a potpourri of emotions. I like the word potpourri, I might use it again sometime.
