The man who enthralled millions of children and adults has sadly passed away aged 83.
One of our families favorite films and in fact it was only a few weeks ago that we watched it AGAIN for the zillionth time.
And not for the last. time..I couldn’t count how many times we watched it and even the luscious Johnny Depp was never Willy Wonka in our eyes there is only one Willy Wonka and that was Gene Wilder.
So rest in peace Mr. Gene Wilder because you sure must have had a golden ticket to get upstairs to see the big man.
Gene Wilder 11-06 1933 to 29-08-2016 You will live on forever in lots of children’s hearts and their childrens, childrens hearts.
Trust me that is exactly how I feel today!
Left half my shopping in Topps and the more expensive stuff.
Tried to phone but no English option…I knew I should have persevered more with my Thai.
It’s as black as black out there and it will cost me probably half as much to go back to get it …If the next person didn’t pick it up. If it really rains the high street will flood anyway and that’s a nightmare…so think I will write that one off.
To say I am p****** off this week is an understatement the rain is still merrily coming through the ceiling and not been fixed… I know now how people cracked under Japanese water torture….. Drip, drip ,drip all night….I have now sent them a video so they can hear the drips!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have also nearly severed the top of my finger this week doing what I have always told the kids not to do…. use a very, just sharpened knife to try and prise the lid off…straight cut round nail and finger…..
Is it my age???????? Or just a bad week??????????????????
Rant over….Sorry guys ….But not been a good week………..
Oh my….. ” X “
Please see Lori’s here https://lumar1298.wordpress.com/2016/08/28/26-weeks-letter-challenge-x/
Now I am away to peruse my photos…I could be awhile…or I could never come back…..Laters!
Got one albeit not mine but Public commons Images…..X- Ray Fish.
Did you know ( I didn’t) That the Chinese word for Watermelon is ” Xigua”
And I have photos of those.
Well that’s all for now only 2 letters to go Y and Z.
What will I do next anyone know of any exciting challenges ????????????????
Wow…..Now how true is that??????
I am coming up to my next ” Born Day”
Maybe that’s why I have ‘deliberated, cogitated and digested’ which was Loyd Grossman’s catchphrase and for reasons unknown to me just keep popping into my head.
I never have or will buy ready -made sauces……Come on..me?
Anyway….. My plan is going ok https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/i-have-a-plan/ ..It’s nice to have a bit of focus…I can now also be found on https://niume.com/pages/profile/?userID=42183 which I love ….it has a leaderboard and I know( at my age) I like to be top…
Oh Yes! I have also been busy on mytrendingstories.com/profile/carol-taylor/ which has not been and still isn’t easy……talk about well if I didn’t already have grey hairs….I would now! It is the most frustrating website ever…..Yes ever.!…but the stubborn streak in me just keeps going back and when I think yehhhhhh it’s sorted….It’s not!
But it would help build my profile if you lovely peeps would pop over..have a look..maybe subscribe to me?????…
So sort of my point is …Am I ….A travel writer?
A food writer?
Just a rambling this is my life writer? Who am I?
This is definitely some sort of who am I crisis……. Is it an age thing?
In my head I am still 30 something…..as my “Born Day” approaches I am definitely NOT!
I now know polystyrene cool boxes are not for plonking your butt on….. The reverse ice challenge!
By now I hope you haven’t lost the will to live….. I hope you forgive my rambles….it’s that bl…….dy catchphrases fault….I was not even a fan and my all time teeth grinding ..turn it off song…..Perfect Day!
Is there such a thing????????
Well it was just by the seat of my pants…phew….. Now we have “W” and it’s getting so near the end of this one …. See Lori’s Here https://lumar1298.wordpress.com/2016/08/22/26-weeks-letter-challenge-w/ She has some great photos.
I am sure I can’t match these…I just point and click and it’s all about luck… certainly not judgement with moi….
Well….Water which we have lots of it here…Floods, sea, lakes and Songkram..Thai new year when there are lots of water pistols and some are sure big boys.
Whats next ? Water Buffalo who sure look a tad grumpy at being watched…
Wat’s ( Temples) to us …All beautiful..some grand and imposing , some remote and hard to find and they are the gems the little known ones..so beautiful.
And No! I haven’t done the obvious….Not a hint of wine…although I could have…ha ha and those who know me would have expected that….but….Not on this occasion I often do the unexpected!
