Claws For The Weekend: The Circus Doesn’t Come To Town

I took this photograph a few weeks ago in my town centre, just before nightfall.

It looks like the circus was in town. It wasn’t. Those gazebo-marquee thingies were put up to encourage people to still use the local cafés when Covid restrictions wouldn’t allow people to sit inside.

We do have a few clowns though.

Hope you all have a great weekend, juggling (😆) any commitments you have.

See you on the flip side.

Claws For The Weekend: Window Shopping

I love this photo by Arthur Leipzig of children looking at Christmas toys in 1944. The little girl at the bottom looks like she just can’t stand the allure, I think I’d have to buy her something.

Anyway, have a great weekend everybody, Christmas is a week today.

I hope you get all you wish for. Be careful what you wish for.

See you on the flip side.

Claws For The Weekend: Los Paranoias

The first day after the lockdown and Jen decided to brave Manchester for some Christmas shopping, taking me with her in tow.

I’m not sure if it’s because of the mask I’m wearing but I feel paranoid, as though every shop I go in someone is either looking at, or speaking about, me.

What do you think?

Anyway, have a great weekend everybody. Don’t forget to wash.

See you on the flip side.

Claws For The Weekend: A Northern Oddity

This was my dog, Bryn, this afternoon, discovering that strange northern phenomenon known as sunshine.

It is nice to get reacquainted, whilst standing in the middle of the seasons’ No-Man’s Land. With the sun, I mean, not the dog.

I later took the opportunity to stain the shed door, making the most of the dry before the approaching wet, with Bryn locked safely away from tin and brush and national disaster.

I’ve got an ongoing project to pick up again later, along with a new book to start in the wee small hours. Rain or shine, the evening’s planned.

Have a good weekend guys. Keep watching the skies.

See you on the flip side.
