Time Out


It's half term over here, and the sun is up. Don't you just love water-gun's? (Evil grin.)

Aw, c'mon - all work and no play is no fun for anyone, is it? Yeah, yeah, yeah, I've got my head down, I'm grafting away (honest). But when Abby wanted us to ambush Bec, well.. who was I to resist?

I have to say though, our little Ms. Abby was proper mortified to find this one also turned on her.. teehee. (I've stashed it somewhere safe now, for fear of revenge attacks..)

Okay, enough of this frivolity, it's back to the grind-stone for me.

Sigh.

BRUNO said...

Dude! Er, I mean---dudette! Lookin' GOOD, as always!(Must be from all that REST you're gettin' in the name of "Writing Your Book"???)

Water-filled, zip-lock sandwich bags. Fill 'em up, zip 'em shut---they'll take out anything in an area limited only by the strength in your throwin' arm!

And for more than ONE target---use the "freezer-bag" size! More splat, for just a minimum more effort.....!!!

Good to see you having fun... keep taking your nose off the grindstone every once in a while.

Akelamalu said...

Nice to know you're having some fun and enjoying this gorgeous weather! :)

Helena said...

Ooo it was half term LAST week here! I used to get Luvbug with the garedn hose but it broke. I suspect sabotage. I could use it at the mo as it is so hot and I have lots of flowers to water. The heavy watering cans are making my elbow play up, but Luvbug can't help: I think he has been told that if he steps away from his laptop for more than 5 minutes at a time, his willy will drop off.

Suldog said...

You're back! Yay! I will now remove you from my "no posts in 30-days" limbo :-)

Hilary said...

Good to see you out in the sunshine occasionally. :)

chewy said...

Aw, running barefoot and playing with water... fun!

Sniffles and Smiles said...

I'm smiling from ear to ear...wish I could join you!!! Good for you taking time out for some fun and laughs!!! Hope all your projects are humming along...we miss you, but look forward to hearing of all your progress! ~Janine XO

God of Another World said...

Bang-Bang! Wait, that isn't the sound a water gun makes...Squirt-Squirt!

Shrinky said...

Hi there Lover of life, ah, a little sun puts us all in a good place, doesn't it?

I'll second that, Bab's. I am not quite back to posting yet, but I thought to pull my head in here ust to remind you all I am still lurking!

Oh Bruno, what a slamb dunk that would be! Now you have put wicked thoughts in my head - the kids are sunbathing under the kitchen window - an easy direct hit from here - giggle.

sj, don't encourage me, I am lazy enough as it is!

Akelamalu, sometimes you just HAVE to stop and enjoy the moment, don't you?

Helena, hahahahaha, maybe you should remind him his willy will see no further use this summer if he doesn't get his arse into gear and help a lady out??

Ah suldog, don't hold your breath, I have a feeling I'll soon be relagated back there again. Sigh.

Hi Hilary, yes, the sun is out, the island has a holiday feel to it with the start of the T.T. races upon us, and the kids are out of school - might as well enjoy it whilst it lasts.

Hi there Chewy, yeah, well, not ALL of us have a pool, you know. (Moi, jealous? Pah, as if!)

Hi Janine, oh hon, it's a slow and torturous ride, but it's coming along.. I think!

God of Another World, (smiling) Ah, now you are just being wet!

Marty said...

Glad to see you put a post up and that you let us enjoy your fun too.

I do hope the writing is going well, I just finished my Chapter XVII (in verse) and posted an audio of the reading on my blog page. Pop over and give a listen when you get a chance.

Once again, it is GREAT to see you around! :D

David, ah, summer is such fun, isn't it?

San, hi there hon - hope all is well with you and yours? (Popping over as I type).

Fletch, I see you have been "smelling" some of your own roses as of late - smile.

Hi Anna, hope the weather is as accommodating over at your side of the pond?

FFF, who, me? (Evil grin.)

Chewy, (giving you the slitty eye) if I didn't know any better, I'd say those grapes are sour - teehee!

Pouty Lips said...

Hi Shrinky - Congrats on your post of the day nomination. woot-woot. Just remember: All work and no play makes for a very blah day.

Shrinky said...

Thanks Craig, hope you are also enjoying the fine weather?

Scott, you are a wee bit pervy, ain't 'cha? Grin.

Hi Helena, aw, thanks for putting a big smile on my face.. um, my birthday is on Christmas Day - shrug - I tend to find my birthdays cards get lost amongst the Christmas ones - pout!

Hi there Pat. Ah, I wish I could say it's flying along, but that would just be fibbing. It's coming. Eyes skyward and fingers crossed..

Hi Sandy, I sure hope you have found a shady spot to relax and enjoy the breeze?

Hi Pouty, yup, I am with you all the way on that one!

The Future Was Yesterday said...

You snuck one in when I wasn't looking! It's sure good to see you are alive and well.

P.S. Water guns, and ambushes with said weapons, are most effective if filled with ice water moments before the attack.

Not that I've ever done it, of course!!

Ok, maybe once or twice.....:)

Shrinky said...

Hey, you may well have something there Dan! Oooooh, how about I take your ice water idea and combine it with Bruno's sandwich bag bombs? Now we're talking - teehee!

James Oh said...

It is a wonderful to seeing you have some fun so as not to make yourself a dull person. It is very healthy o do so. Thanks for remindering us to have fun.

Angel... said...

Wow.. seems like you had a very good fun with the water gun. COOL

Alex L said...

You look far to happy to be armed.

Thumbelina said...

Well isn't that typical? You go and come back on the blog when I am out of the country!
I'll challenge you to a water fight!
After I have read your other post mind you....
