Reason #1 why you shouldn’t boast about your own exploits – it generally bores the youngsters, who are too young and ignorant to appreciate just what you actually faced. Which means you have to go to the trouble of teaching them to pay attention…

If you find yourself losing a game of chess to a pesky little cleverclog, a tremendous sneeze over the game generally brings it to a close. Especially if you pocket a pawn or two, while cleaning the pieces.

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of a walk along the beach I did with Frank a couple of weeks ago. It was a bright afternoon and surprisingly warm for the time of year. I loved the rich quality of the sunshine, as the sun was heading towards the horizon, even though it was only about 4 pm. The joys of a short winter day… We didn’t stay down there for the sunset – but those pics of the sky were taken from my front garden just over an hour later…

Never, ever snatch livestock from humans unless you’ve burnt down their farm and incinerated any onlookers. They are the only species in the world more possessive than dragons

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve some photos of our walk on the beach on Saturday morning when the younger grandchildren were staying. We had to go reasonably early as Himself needed to go to bed by 11 am so he got sufficient sleep for his late shift. And it was perishing! However, everyone enjoyed getting out for a breath of fresh – if freezing – air…

Some do-gooders insist you shouldn’t eat any species that can beg for mercy. You can ignore this nonsense by biting their heads off before asking them if they want to be spared.

In this week’s Tuesday Treasures, I’ve taken a series of photos from last Thursday, when we went for a walk along Littlehampton beach. The grandchildren were with us and it was a beautiful sunny afternoon without a breath of wind. It was amazingly mild for the time of year, so I could dawdle on the shingle, soaking up the sun and watching the boys tussle down by the sea. They both returned with wet shoes, but that was okay. I got them dry before they went home the following day. A drop of golden happiness in the middle of the gloomiest of gloomy winters…
