Grumpy Old Man

The Complete Works

Another wet and miserable day, raining from dawn to dusk! And dusk comes very early here at this time of year - sunset was at 15.58, so it was pretty gloomy by 3pm. Imagine driving to Marks and Sparks just to get out of the house!

So it had to be  a genuine Emergency Blip today. I've probably Blipped this before; if so, I deserve to be Bard from Blipfoto! I love my little collection of Shakespeare's works - the bookcase is about 9" high and belonged to my Great-Aunt Alice. After her death my grandfather took me into her house in Henley and told me to choose something I liked, so this was it! I've put on an extra to prove that they're real books!

Limerick of the Day:

Young Shakespeare was said to work hard
At the inn where he wrote by the yard!
He wasn’t liked at the pub,
Buying no ale or grub,
So he soon earned the title of Barred!
