That ain't Granddad on the broom!

No, you are right, it is not, it is a warty old witch, lol, but it seems Granddad might have done some flying as well...

Well, that kinda worked, lol, getting both challenges for this week into one post title :-). We are up to the letter G for the Tag Tuesday challenge and when I made my list of G words, Grandfather jumped out at me and told me his story. He was a bit of a lad in his youth and travelled to many strange and wonderful places, but when he returned after many decades, something about him had changed. Can't quite put my finger on it......






These days he spends a lot of time at the bottom of the garden, talking to the flowers and insects. And I could swear that sometimes his feet don't quite touch the ground.

The word for the Every Inchie Monday challenge was Broom, and somehow I had to get a witch onto the broom. She gave me a lot of trouble, as witches are wont to do, and the broom wasn't very obliging either. Fortunately, they have now flown off and I am breathing a sigh of relief -



What a strange week I am having, lol.
