    “I’m Late.” 

    As a kid, My mom had a plaque on our kitchen wall with the quote: ” The hurrier I go the behinder I get.” Now I understand exactly what it means.

    A “white rabbit” costume would be a perfect costume for me most years  because  even though I may make it on time, the pressure is always on in my mind screaming, “I’m Late. I’m Late!”

      That quote is pretty much perfect.

      Alice in Wonderland was my favorite bedtime story. Funny how your mother was ahead of her time with keeping one of the quotes on her wall 😉

        Yes, was a very rustic plaque. Wish I still had it. She probably sold it in one of our yearly yard sales. Thanks for commenting.

      That quote on on your mom´s kitchen is so true… I guess when we are in a rush everything gets messy, because of our own “speed”… So we´d better slow it down! 🙂 Wishing you the best. Aquileana 😀

      Dear friend,
      when reading Alice. The rabbit is talking but Alice is not surprised. She was surprised when the rabbit is looking at his clock. Great pun by Carroll….and maybe the best lines of the book.

      Hugs by Rinaldo.

      Ciao.

    I Played Around with an Old Photo 

    Yes, the original photo contained yellow painted walls on this house, but I took this way back with a cheap 2nd hand camera, so I thought it could use some “Yellow brightening” to  lighten up the poor pitiful thing with extra yellow.

    This is for  Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge which runs Tuesday- Monday weekly.
