I'm in absolute agreement

Posted on Thu, 07 Apr 2022

I'm in absolute agreement with you. I did buy my first phone some months ago, but only to take photos, I got so fed up of it just lying around, never being used, that in the end I gave it to my son who I knew would make more use of it than me....

Hear! Hear! Rhiannon. These

Posted on Fri, 25 Mar 2022

Hear! Hear! Rhiannon. These words are so important. We all need that special someone we can depend on, and know they can depend on us too.

It brings to mind when our fence blew down, instead of getting in someone professional, me and my...

Very much enjoyed reading

The view you've created with

Posted on Wed, 16 Feb 2022

The view you've created with words is spectacular. I just love castles and the one in your photo shows so much of the antiquity of the past, a period of impressions I find so appealing, with a backdrop of a distant neighbouring town and far...

Wandering through your poem,

Posted on Sun, 06 Feb 2022

What an amazing journey

Posted on Wed, 02 Feb 2022

What an amazing journey Turlough. I can never get over how much adventure you've experienced in your life. To have shown those children so much kindness, gives me faith that there are good people in the world.

Hi Penny,

I like the fact that although Dillon could be the suspect, you are still keeping the suspense going as this mystery progresses. As always Willow comes across as a very wise cat.

Still very much enjoying.

This was so creepy, I thank

Posted on Sun, 02 Jan 2022

This was so creepy, I thank goodness that I don't ever get involved with anything but ABC Tales. I have been stupid in the past and been hit with some scams, but you live and learn. This story was something else, a lot more scary.

Hope you...
