From our garden

I've heard of a couch potato, but a mouse potato?  Or is it a potato mouse?  My husband dug this little spud up with the rest of his crop, but luckily the others were all normal. 

An anagram puzzle for you
Seen alive? Sorry pal.

While we're on footwear,  I knitted myself a pair of socks recently.  Never done it before, on four needles.  The first one was great, after I fixed up a problem with the heel turning being at the top of the sock instead of the sole.  So I made another, measured umpteen times, with tape measure, and against the other sock.  Put them together when it was finished, and the second one is about a cm shorter in the foot than the first one! 

Fortunately, my right foot is about half a centimetre shorter than my left, and the knitting has a bit of stretch in it, anyway.

Quotes on old age

"At age 20, we worry about what other people think of us; at 40 we don't care what they think of us; at 60 we discover they haven't been thinking of us at all".                        Bob Hope

"I refuse to go on that Grumpy Old Men programme, because if I go on, I'll be grumpy about grumpy old men".                             

"During much of my life, I was anxious to be what someone else wanted me to be.  Now I have given up that struggle.  I am what I am".

These photos were posted on facebook recently.

Of course, I'm sure Nigella doesn't look that gorgeous first thing in the morning, when she's just got out of bed, and I'm sure the other woman could look better with makeup and a professional hairdo, but I still know who I'd rather look like.
