Magpie Tales #178 Full Moon Buffoon

painting by Andrew Wyeth 


There once was a man named Lance
Who dared to ride his cycle with no pants
He was a total buffoon
By the light of the moon
T'was weeks before he could dance
~~~~~~~~

Once again Tess Kincaid has given us another
 stellar image to prod our creativity.

Please note: We are up north away from home for a week

and I will do my best at blogging and returning comments,
 but I think it will be sporadic at best. Happy Week everyone!

For some reason I couldn't get Jim Morrison and The Doors out of my head ~~ riders on the storm.
