(I am not sure it has any official lyrics ... but there seem to be lots of different ones that come up in a search ... but I just remember what Mum and Dad - who have been known to get up and do the chicken dance in public without even having to have their grandkids around at the time sometimes sing - "With a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, and you wiggle your bum" actually it was Dad who would sing it and Mum would pretend to be a bit shocked at him being a bit rude - lol)
but ... to get to the point (if there ever IS any point to most of my blog posts?) ... I have been sitting here getting Lost in cyberspace while uplaoding a pile of photos onto the computer (and the darn camera software seems to be having a go slow lately ... even re-starting the computer did not fix it) and I thought maybe while I am here I probably should post something to my blog, seeing I have not done my L post for ABC Wednesday yet (and in a couple days it will be time for the Letter M)
... and while I am here I will maybe even do something I have been meaning to do for months and Lose that Light coloured background - which
but what should I put there instead? LOL
I think my text (and everything else for that matter!) would get Lost among these Leaves:
The weird brown flower is a Banksia ... still in the process of flowering. There were Lots of them growing along the paths near Mum and Dad's place when I was up there visiting them (that is where I have been for the last couple of weeks - up in Queensland ;-)
These weird pink and green Leaves were also up near my parents place:
... somewhere in a garden in their street, I think.
these sunflowers were also nearby:
There is not much Left of the one on the Left - Mum has a similar photo to this, but the bird (I think it was a parrot) was still on there eating the seeds from it ... it has Left a weird, but rather cute, heart shaped patch of seeds in the middle (maybe it Left those for Later?)
I Like the Legs on this Lovely spider:
... but that didn't stop me eating it ;-)
(the veins kind of Look all Lumpy - like on some creature in a B grade sci fi movie or something ... but I actually ate that leaf just after I took the photo, and it tasted Lovely ... so did the thing Mum cooked with some of the cauliflower in it, when we ate it Later)
I also took this photo of a Lily and its Leaf - in Mum and Dad's new fish pond
a very Little fish pond actually ... but it was the deepest one they could find at the time (their garden is only Little so they couldn't really build a huge great Lake or anything).
Mum and I went walking along a beach one morning and found some pelicans waiting for some Lunch
the table thingy is where the fishermen clean their fish (there is a boat ramp just to the Left) - the pelicans know where to come and wait for some Lunch ;-)
I Love the colours on this Little beasty - not something many people Like - a Bluebottle - which has a nasty sting!
I also Like the Little holes in the sand (from where air bubbles were as the waves washed up the beach and back - and Left this poor Little creature high and dry, where it won't Live for Long)
"Leave only footprints"?
yes - my footprint, and some more weird bubbly marks where the waves had been.
Let's get a bit more? "arty farty"?
I had to Lie down on the beach to get the right camera angle!
(I am sure anyone who was Looking would have been Laughing at me)
I think a storm is Looming? (actually it was just a very light shower of rain that came - and it was not as big as I had hoped it would be - I Like swimming in the rain!)
I also Like the colours I got in this photo:
"quick - Let's dive under the water so we don't get rained on ..."?
it is the wreck of the ship that the beach is named after - Dicky Beach - "Dicky" is a weird name for a ship - lol
there is not much Left of it now ...
I took this photo (and the ones after it) a couple days Later:
it is amazing what a difference one can get with different Light for one's photos
I also Like to get right into what I am doing:
(yes those are my toes - and yes - I was IN the water for a Lot of these photos - I Like my clever Little waterproof camera!)
I also Like the fact that the Lifesavers are there to Look after those Lunatic tourists (and possibly a few odd Locals) who Like to Leap into the water on days Like this!
