On the Rocks


Algy followed the lighthouse keepers’ path down to the barnacled rocks at the edge of the sea, and found himself a prickly perch among the rock pools. The tide was coming in, and the water surged all around his feet with much enthusiasm. It was great fun to watch, and he wondered how long it would be before he got splashed…

Algy hopes that you have all been having fun and enjoying yourselves this weekend 🙂


In Britain, December 26th is the traditional holiday of Boxing Day, when folk get together after the excitement of Christmas Day to rest and enjoy themselves playing games, going to the pantomime, and so on. So Algy joined his indoor friends for some fun and games under the Christmas tree, but he found the game of spillikins a wee bit more challenging for a fluffy bird than he had expected…

Happy Holidays everyone! Algy hopes you will all have a good rest and enjoy yourselves with your friends and family xoxo

Song Title Tagging Game

Algy’s friend mojo5050 posted her own answers to this tagging game, and invited her friends to try it too, so Algy had a go. But he didn’t find it difficult (probably owing to the songwriter he chose) – there were too many suitable song titles, not too few 🙂 So…

Using only song names from 1 artist, cleverly answer these questions. Pass it on to 15 people. Try not to repeat a song title. It’s a lot harder than you think!

Pick your artist/band: Bob Dylan

Male or female? No Time to Think

Describe yourself: Mr. Tambourine Man + Born in Time

How do you feel? One More Cup of Coffee + Buckets of Rain

Describe where you currently live: Black Diamond Bay + Highlands

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Shelter from The Storm

Your favorite form of transportation? Slow Train

Your best friend is: Girl from The North Country

You and your best friends are: Tangled Up in Blue

Your favorite time of day: Meet Me in The Morning

If your life was a TV show what would the title be: Blowin’ in The Wind

What is life to you? Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

Describe your relationship: Love Minus Zero, No Limit

Your fear? A Hard Rain’s A’Gonna Fall + Masters of War

But Algy did observe that it was really necessary to know the songs in question in order to understand the answers in most cases.

Algy doesn’t want to embarrass anyone by tagging them specifically, but he would be thrilled to see his friends try this too. Have a go, it’s fun, and it’s surprising how accurate the results can be 🙂

In Britain, Boxing Day (26th December) is traditionally a holiday devoted to fun and games with friends and family, so Algy was delighted when a special little friend came to visit him. And of course they couldn’t start playing games without their party hats, so it was essential to begin by pulling some Christmas crackers…

Algy hopes you will all have a happy day full of fun and games  :-))
