distant disappearing sun


distant disappearing sun

Another bit of sky the other day as the sun withdrew into a cave of cloud. And dust from a distant sun will shower over everyone

17 Oct, 2011

Look, I am not meant to be on GoY at all...am meant to be looking up a receipe for green tomatoes!!

17 Oct, 2011

17 Oct, 2011

 

I don't know, I put on a very mystical pic and you are talking about chutney!!!

17 Oct, 2011

 

Anyone have a recipe for salad???
:))))

17 Oct, 2011

 

lobster thermidor ; )

17 Oct, 2011

 

sorry stevie ~ i did comment on the picture first.

17 Oct, 2011

 

Lol, but you got my thinking now about a bit of chutney with me cheese n ham sandwich I had a while ago, with a small veg patch cucumber I might add. You have also reminded me to buy some branston pickle as well.
Maybe we all need a bit of chutney for those dark days ahead.

17 Oct, 2011

 

im sure a bit of chutney would do us all good!!!

17 Oct, 2011

 

chutney for all!!!, shall I change the title to 'Chutney sun'?

17 Oct, 2011

 

someone might ask where Chutney was??

17 Oct, 2011

 

What is chutney??

17 Oct, 2011

 

Are you joking Lil? Similar to pickle - if not the same. Sweet/sour accompaniment.

17 Oct, 2011

 

No, not joking. Not familiar with it :( Have led a very sheltered life :)

17 Oct, 2011

 

Chutney-on-Sea, been there, nice place !!

18 Oct, 2011

 

Anyone for a pickle?

18 Oct, 2011

 

Chutney in the sea would not be nice.

18 Oct, 2011

 

I'd just like to take this opportunity once again to apologise for putting a pic on that was unrelated to chutney or any associated pickles ; )

18 Oct, 2011

 

However you have got me thinking that I do have some green tomatoes and a couple of courgettes and cumbers that I dont know what to do with hmmmm

18 Oct, 2011

 

and I do have a mixer I havent used

18 Oct, 2011

 

i think you need a chopper more than a mixer stevie.

and anymore unrelated sunbranded chutney pictures would be gratefully received.

18 Oct, 2011

 

i put this blog on my favourites, it makes me giggle everytime i read it.

18 Oct, 2011

 

I need a new mixer! And some fekin' sleep!! Away with the fairies (see moss blog!!)

18 Oct, 2011

 

its a lovely blog, never saw the fairies tho!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

They were all in my sleep depraved mind! That's why the balloon gave me such a fright...a bit Blair Witch!

18 Oct, 2011

 

Skies the limit for topics so far on this pic!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

hehe - Autumn - harvest season, lol
Lil - chutney is new to me as well, but tried it, liked it..

18 Oct, 2011

 

Good to know Kasy. Was feeling left out. How is it eaten? As a condiment?

18 Oct, 2011

 

oh, don't worry Lil. I was living it Canada ages ago, that's where I've started to study English - still mix words, still wonder what Brits they are talking about, lol. Most of the time it's a part of the sandwich, but for me it is still a lot to learn. Asking all the time about simple things, lol.

18 Oct, 2011

 

you could eat it in sandwiches with cold meat or cheese or just to dip into with cold meat or cheese ~ there are a huge variety of chutneys ~ nice and tangy.

18 Oct, 2011

 

I feel like I've just stepped into a parallel universe.

18 Oct, 2011

 

the universe of chutney??

18 Oct, 2011

 

Yes Frybo, I didn't realise it at the time but the gap in the clouds was in fact a split in the time-space continuum connected to a parallel universe, consequently made entirely of chutney with a bit of pickle mixed in. We are not in Kansas anymore.

18 Oct, 2011

 

umpa lumpas eaten all the chutney???

18 Oct, 2011

 

And there's me clickin' my heels.............and eating last years green tomato chutney!

18 Oct, 2011

 

never mind lulu, you should get home first!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

Oh I don't know, I rather like a broken line in the continuum's of parallel universesii's!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

i have got lost now ~ i shall have to ask the wizard for a satnav ~ or a translator dictionary!!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

And who is the wizard?!! Sluggy pup!! erm maybe not!

18 Oct, 2011

 

Am now going to lie down for a bit and hope that I wake up in Surrey!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

i wouldnt bank on it frybo!!

i think this blog should be re-named ~
distinctly disappearing sun.

Dear WI of Clatterford St. Mary

I am writing once again to thank you for inviting me to give my seminal conceptual fine art presentation entitled 'skyscapes of the post apocalypse for the existentialist lunchbox' to your very receptive and welcoming lady WI members.
I would however just like to point out that the experience was somewhat marred by a small minority of ladies who continued to talk over me at key moments during this serious topic. I am sure some of the other members would have been distracted by what seemed to be a separate discussion going on at down the front about... 'chutney'!! Moreover at a key moment of conceptual solemnity in my speech a shriek of 'pickle' was heard followed by giggling.
Whilst I am partial to a bit of gherkin myself I do not think this is appropriate behaviour for what must surely be a Turner prize nominee.
Afterward I was informed that two of those members, Lulu and Sticki, had also been involved in the now infamous cupcake throwing incident of 2009 which made the local paper and cast a dark and unwarranted cloud over your fine organisation (NB I have no picture of this cloud available). Thus I thought it only kind to inform you of these surfacing shenanigans.
However apart from that I do hope the rest enjoyed the show and please thank them for the sponges which will last me another year.
Kind Regards
Stephano le terriblement

Dear and Esteemed Artist of Monmouthshire
You will doubtless recall our prior warning to this group, they are indeed a keen and knowledgeable group some of whom have a very creative minds.
It appears from your letter dated today that you were perhaps a little perturbed by the disturbance ~ we apologise for this but would ask you to bear in mind that the young ladies in question, as mentioned above, have your best interest at heart and were no doubt inspired by your rare and beautiful photo.
We look forward to further pictures from you and hope that this will stimulate even more varied debate.
Next months meeting, should you be interested is to be on 'Pickles' and will be followed by a bun fight.
Yours sincerely
Worthy of Worcestershire

18 Oct, 2011

 

LOL!!!!!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

P.S. next time you are booked to show slides and give a talk could you please supply brown paper bags to the listeners ~ as the giggles have now turned to hysterical laughter!!

18 Oct, 2011

 

WI of Clatterford St Mary
& Worthy of Worcestershire
& Princess of the Time warp, crack in the sky (that's Bowie Sticki!) Friend of all dragons.............

Would like to thank Stephano the Terriblement for his very interesting seminar on conceptual fine art presentation - Skyscapes of the post apocolypse for the existentialism of chutney.

I enclose 100 sponges from the wild sargasso sea, a few paper bags and a cupcake.

Pickle whirling and bunfights will take place in the hobbits house on the far distant hills of Wenslydale.
Please note, DO NOT FEED the local Dragons because they are flying that night and wish to be slim enough to breach the infamous crack in the sky.

Yours utterly sincerely
Gothic of Gloucestershire.

Phew.time for a glass of.

19 Oct, 2011

 

Cheers Gothic!!! a most excellent letter.

19 Oct, 2011

 

Dear ladies
Just need to sharpen my quill pen pen and then I will be back with something witty..promise ; )

19 Oct, 2011

 

we shall keep you to that promise.

19 Oct, 2011

 

Har har me hearties, that's the ticket!
Honestly, haven't we anything better to do with our time? The dragons are sleeping, the gardens to bed (well nearly!) The vacuuming done (cat n' dog miele seems to be making weird noises like it's going to blow up?) And dinner's on the go..............Hake for D. Chard and tofu for me. Salad leaves and beetroot and carrot salad with coriander seed and mayo/yogurt dressing............in front of the fire with the telly on (which, quite frankly, I would like to toss out of the window!)

19 Oct, 2011

 

And im in the kitchen with a cup of tea and the computer, ironing not done ~ i could toss that out of the window.

19 Oct, 2011

 

I'm wondering if the lot of you have been out harvesting (magic) mushrooms?????
;)

19 Oct, 2011

 

I was wondering the same as Lil - maybe some Klingon wine or hobbit hash cakes have also been consumed.
