Well the HS:MS prompt for the day stumped me CHEW .................. i have no cute pet to catch the cats ran and hide, no cute child either mine big and camera phobic! and no helpful person or animal came along today........................ so i passed.

Did make it to my scrapbooking club tonight always a nice change to get out and play with paper and glue without interuptions, it was the monthly kit from looked scary and bright but really pleased with it, unsure about cutting up photo was experimenting ( looks more like prison bars ! )

HS/MS is special shots today , we had a good day out at hever castle beautiful gardens wish i'd taken my DSLR instead of compact, but still trying to work out how to use it so probably best i didn't, be nice to go back minus kids and crowds and just shoot for day,

the grief i got friday from kids as no prompt word...................... almost made up my own , but back in swing of it today : )

oh saw space monkeys yesterday at cinema well worth a look if you got kids to take, and thats from me who has no sense of humour!!!!!!

right enough waffle , here's my picture i love taking pictures of the back of people no silly faces to mess them up and makes me wonder what they were looking at,

Well what a day i had to go to the dentist and to say scared is understatement try terrified !!!!!! at 42 had to get my mum to take me bless her what would i do without her,

HS / MS prompt for day Rust - i can't take credit for these as are only 2 of about 30 that my son took while hunting the garden for rust, thank heaven for digital cameras or i would be going through films like toilet paper,

amazing how 1 prompt can keep an adult and 2 children occupied for so long, if you haven't tried to go take alook at thier site,

Swing low, sweet chariot

back with HS / MS prompt is swing , so i have my darling son practising his swing in the garden,

and i racked my brain for song lyric and best i can do is


Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot

Coming for to carry me home

this has been recorded by so many artists from 1936 till 2008 from johnny cash , stevie wonder to russell watson for the England national rugby union team.

HS/MS prompt of day is pipes - A tube of material in which to feed liquid or air. Have you got a fine set of pipes?

i'm pinching a idea from a fellow blogger hope she doesn't mind who i came across through HS /MS the prompt made her think of a song and there for past memories, best i can do for song is :

Paul McCartney - pipes off peace

Help them to learn (help them to learn)

Songs of joy instead of burn, baby, burn(burn, baby burn)

Let us show them how to play the pipes of peace

Play the pipes of peace

and here's my pipe piture to for it :)
