When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.

  1. Isis is using the computer already!!!???
    WOW I’m impressed!

    A parrot story, how lovely.
    I know if I put Captain in my bra he would remove some parts of me that I have grown accustomed to.
    Today he nearly removed my toe when I opened the pantry door and didn’t realise he was in residence in the bottom shelf.
    I dropped a can of baked beans in shock and it missed him by THAT much.
    He was almost a late parrot, an ex parrot, one pining for the fjords.

    I loved the pic of the huge jellyfish.Imagine coming across that when you’re having a dip.

    Great stuff, thanks Kitty Kat.And Isis and Greg.

    love shadows

    1. a different Isis
      I’ve known parrots who would’ve crawled into her bra all by themselves – and would have taken a nap if no one disturbed them! So I was extending her the benefit of the doubt – until I read the part about her trying to barter the parrot for a used car. Naughty, naughty!
