Dear old eccentric Spike was one of my heroes. I loved his books and his poems and my heart ached each time he had to struggle with his internal demons. However, I remember with a smile, a milk advert he did on TV in the 70's, warning us to "Watch out, watch out, watch out, watch out, there's a Humphrey about!" - Humphrey being an unseen character, who you would only know was there by the appearance of a straw emerging from the side of the screen, trying to get into your glass of milk!
As far as I know, these ads were never shown in Scotland, but I saw them after I got married and moved to England for a short time.
You may wonder where I'm going with this. Well, today's word over on HSMSHS is 'Warning' and here's mine ....
There was a glorious sunset here yesterday evening, but by the time I'd grabbed my camera, this was all that was left of it.
If only I'd been a few minutes earlier.
I mnaaged to wear my Varifocals all day yesterday without too much trouble, but I'm struggling again today. My eyes are aching.
