george and a jig...

george, a passing pesky gnome has taken a liking to our front yard.
i am thinking all the weeding and planting of late has attracted him.


do not let his cheery face fool you.
i have noted he carries a weapon of mass destruction,
has something lurking in his other hand, carefully hidden
and if that were not enough to treat him with caution.
he appears to be the sneaky type who lurks with intent,
waiting for unsuspecting grannies to do a spot of yard work


i have done several jigs today,
i think it fair to say i am not in good shape to do such a thing,
but i did not let that impede my jiggery mode.
Used Dog is banned from jigging with her jippy joints,
however Little Olive, i must congratulate upon her ability to jig like a pro,
despite her legs of little length.
so there we have it,
a short legged little sausage jigging,
an unfit, quite clammy by the end of it all, woman jigging
and a used dog of many, many years not jigging
and what, i am thinking, you may be wondering were our reasons for such jiggery.


well dearest readers, i have seen a few pages of my book
and blimey! if that isn't worth getting a little clammy,
whilst doing several laps of the shed with clogs on jigging,
then i do not know what is.
i am not sure the bit where i could not breath after several laps
was because of my complete unfit condition
or because my breathe was taken away
with the wonderful work Janine is doing with my pennings.
i am telling myself it is the latter...

she is noting Mr Sun is shinning like he means it for the first time in months ~ Tif

Lola Nova said...

ooh, I don't know if I'm up for a jig but, I can do a sort of skippity-hop...which I am doing - or was doing before, because typing and skippity-hopping do not mix. Hooray for you my friend, I am delighted that you are delighted.

Meanwhile; do be watchful of that gnome.

You have to watch those pesky gnomes you know....

Congratulations on seeing the first pages Tif. You must be so excited! I am and it's not even my book lol.

Hi Tif, how exciting about your book!! Your garden looks so good all weeded - mine is a jungle. I hope you hop over and see my flower pictures on my current post. I'm pretty pleased with them! Hugs, Teresa :-)

I will take over the jig when you get to clammy. Hoorah!

Michelle said...

I too am doing a little breathless jig down here in OZ...
It could be just the freezing cold blast from the south pole or what I suspect the excitement about your new book...Either way I have realized that I am very,very unfit...

liz said...

I'm sure we shall all be a jigging when we hold your dear book in our paws but you are sure to jig the most. Liz xxx

That is so exciting for you! If the cover is anything to go by, the book is going to be super, duper gorgeous! Congratulations.

Hi Tif, glad the book is causing much jigging. Please warn unsuspecting Grannies that too much time on knees gardening can curtail jigging in later life! (but still I do it - gardening on knees, not jigging lol)
George is quite a handsome gnome and could well deceive the unsuspecting female.

Pixie said...

So cool, I'd do a jig too!

PS: short legged sausage dog jigs are adorable.

Ooooh, how exciting, I am wondering if those pants are your pants of greatness? You did promise a picture???? I love gorgeous george.....

Laurie said...

Oh, yay for book pages, for sun and for some justified jigging! I will gather my pups, one of short legs for a while longer, and join in with the jiggery.

dottie angel said...

monet paisley, those are my mother's pants of greatness you spy! i am not sure my mother is now speaking to me having posted a photo of her derrière upon my shiny place :)

how lovely of your pups to join in a bit of jiggery on my behalf.
