Eel Pics

Sylvester the Eel

We went down to the duckpond today, not fully expecting to see the girls eel friend again, but hopeful. And as soon as we got up to the edge, there he was. They fed him whilst I took pics.

Feeding Sylvester

So sociable, an awesome unexpected experience for the girls, hand feeding an eel.

Denver Saying Hi


Unfortunately the next day when we went to the pond we found him dead. It caused much heartache for Kyla and Denver.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
