-« Dad, why is there a  caddy on the beach? »

-« It’s not a beach, boy. It’s called foreshore. »

-« What? »

– « A beach is a low laying strip of land bordered by the water but the foreshore is the zone left uncovered by the tide. »

– « So I suppose that that is not a caddy? »

-« Don’t be snappy with your old dad, boy, of course it’s a caddy … but it’s tidewrack too, stuff brought by the sea. »

-« Where from? »

-« A supermarket ravaged by a tsunami on a far away seaboard, surely! »

-« OH? Can we wait then? »

-« Why? «

-« Maybe it was in the cereal aisle? »

Thanks then to Rochelle whose blog is found here :



and I hope my readers will like it.

    • A tad soggy most likely with an undertone of kelp! No wonder salt water remains a niche alternative to milk on Corn Flakes and Cheerios and the rest!
      Thanks Sun, Tay.

    • Thanks Roach! As we discussed before, it’s quite simple : perfect logic but applied to a very partial view of the World? I suppose some of it still lingers in me which explains my choice of title for my blog despite the normally serious matters that it covers.
      Peace, Tay.

    • TY Shandra. I’ll be checking you and some of the others in turn in a few minutes. Rainy Saturday morning here, perfect for the task. I’m just waiting for the fresh pot of coffee. :D
      Have a good day, Tay.

    • Shucks, myladies, you’ll have me blushing! But I wholeheartedly concur of course. A spoonful of magic helps the reality go down said Mary Poppins … or just about!
      And sorry to both you gals and Janet for the delay in answering, I’m busy trying to help a baby squirrel survive which is about as much work as for a human one I found out. Sigh!
