100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#153


Apologies for the lack of a challenge last week. Hubby and I had a few days away which involved an overnight stay in Paris! As always, we packed far too much into the time we were there so need a rest to get over it!

The prompt this week will hopefully get those humorous juices working! It is:

…but my poor old feet…

Come on, make me smile!

Botanical plants

A while ago I shared a post with you about a trip to Bristol Botanical Gardens and promised I would let you see some of the wonderful plants that are housed there. The greenhouses take you to hot climes with humidity that takes your breath away when you enter them but the sights inside are well worth the clammy feeling.

I didn’t take note of their names but aren’t they beautiful?

In the greenhouses were also some sculptures. I loved this one of a kingfisher about to lunge at it’s unsuspecting prey.IMG_6075

There were some great sights around the gardens. For instance, look at this tree that had been wrapped up against to threat of frost and winter. I’m sure it has been unwrapped by now!

IMG_6061Monkey puzzle trees have always fascinated me. I lived in Southampton as a girl and there were lots there. Apparently if you mapped them they would take you to buried treasure!!


There were some wonderful flower sculptures around too. These were in the foundry area. Just look at the details on the metal.



We will certainly be visiting again next year!


100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#152


Well the election here in the UK has taken place and a new government is in place. Social media seems to have been awash with all sorts of angst at the result. It would appear that if you don’t like the result you blame the voters! Strange!

The prompt this week is a take on recent events and is:

…that’s democracy…

Don’t forget, only 100 words now!

The link will close on 17th May.

A man walked into the ladies department and shyly walked up to
the woman behind the counter and said,
‘I’d like to buy a bra for my wife. ‘
‘ What type of bra?’ asked the clerk.
‘Type?’ inquires the man, ‘There’s more than one type?’
‘ Look around,’ said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable.
‘Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from.’
Relieved, the man asked about the types.
The saleslady replied:
‘There are the Catholic, Salvation Army, Presbyterian, and the Baptist types.
Which one would you prefer?’
Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them.
The Saleslady responded, ‘It is all really quite simple.’
The Catholic type supports the masses;
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright;
The Baptist type makes mountains out of molehills.

Oh and have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD , E, F, G, and H are the letters used
to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn’t figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!
{A} Almost Boobs.
{B} Barely there.
{C} Can’t Complain.
{D} Dang!
{DD} Double dang!
{E} Enormous!
{F} Fake.
{G} Get a Reduction.
{H} Help me, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!

Thanks to Face Book for this great laugh!
