Let’s zoom in a little closer shall we?
Two hundred yards of ringed moorings, half or perhaps two-thirds of a mile of other moorings, all empty save for the Cardinal. So where do these… persons… think would be a wonderful place to drop anchor? Yep – bow to bow. They even worked hard at it to manoeuvre themselves into that position, it was no accident!
I know full well that the only stretch of canal that I can lay claim to (and then only temporarily) is the 57′ 4″ that the Cardinal occupies, but well really. It’s January and as you can see, space is not exactly at a premium!
What are they? Insecure? Lonely? Expecting to benefit from shared body-heat?
Not even stern to stern but bow to ruddy bow, so that the principle view from my desk is their harlequin-pattern cratch board and 2,500w tunnel light.
Sheesh. In fact – Sheesh O’Reilly, really!
In busy times we all happily take what space we can get, but in winter? How rude!
AN ADVERTISEMENT – one by me and not WordPress, for a change!
On a less numpty note I spent yesterarvo adding some twenty-eight new photographs to my FIne-Art ‘Merica / Pixels online shop – mostly the misty moisty ones from the recent post ‘Magnifibode‘. This is where, globally, anyone who takes the fever may buy the aforesaid images in many different formats from canvas print to paper poster to mug to even jigsaw puzzle. Filfulment is handled at many “local – or more local – to you” filfulment centres, so you’re not waiting for the YouEss to discover (and then invent) high-speed delivery.
Simply spreading the word would be much appreciated, thank’ee kindly. A share, a tweet, a mention, that sort of thing. 🙂 There are buttons for “The Social Media” all over the F/Art-Pixels website.
Ian Hutson @ FIne-Art ‘Merica / Pixels. Clickez-vousing on the link will open me in a new tab where a cove may browse safely and in anonymity. Greetings cards (with your personalised message inside) from £1.29 for 25, £1.70 or so for 10, jigsaws for about £30, and box-frame canvas prints &etceteras from about three hundred quid down to a tenner or so, everything is available in many splendid forms and sizes. Production takes the lion’s share obviously, but yes, I do get a slice of the action, and some day it may keep me in broccoli and OJ and hot fruity teasted toecakes.
In short, manifold pleasures for your home. Please share ’em. I have only to sell 999,994 more items and I shall, this year, have sold a million.
