The Photo Challenge this weekend from Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is WINGS.  

My personal offering to our photo challenge is a mixed bag of wings, both in and out of view!

During a rare break from the heavy rain last week,  I enjoyed a morning walk around the Tarn. This local lake is situated close to Leeds and Bradford Airport, Yorkshire, England. The western end of the longest runway runs just above the northern edge of the lake.

What’s up now?

WHY IS MY POST NOT ON THE READER? 😢

Almost FIVE hours ago at 07:02 AM (UK time) my scheduled post  ‘BEST THING EVER‘ was published here on Nan’s Farm.

Two minutes previously, at 07:00 AM our scheduled Weekly Prompts post  ‘BEST BUY‘ was published and immediately appeared on the Reader. So where is my one from Nan’s Farm?

I gave it a chance and waited two hours before I contacted WordPress. This is not the first time my articles have received a long delay before appearing on the reader.

When we created our Challenge site Weekly Prompts, we deliberately published our articles early in the day so that the majority of the world could read our posts on the day they were published. Always assuming they want to!! 😀

WordPress became a source of annoyance to me in the way it published on North American time, almost as though the rest of us didn’t count. It was 13:00 hours before the UK received the prompt, and hours later in European countries and South Africa and almost the end of the day in Australia. It’s impossible to cover everyone but at least we try.

Why they didn’t schedule the prompts for after midnight is beyond me.

Anyway, enough of my complaints. I expect my article will turn up sooner or later.

FINALLY, my post BEST THING EVER has appeared on the reader, only took five hours to get there! 😂

Best Thing Ever

This weekend the Photo Challenge on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is Best Buy. This is my own response to our challenge.

It’s a safe bet to assume that most of us own something that we regard as our ‘Best Buy’.

For me, the absolute best thing ever, is my home, the small farm that we purchased 43 years ago this week. 

When I leave my favourite Charity farm coffee shop after meeting up with friends, I can see my red roofed home in the centre of the distant horizon. I never fail to pause awhile, take in the view and say a quiet thank you.SONY DSC

No matter how far I travel, I always come home.

Assuming an Assumption

“Always asssume that all assumptions are wrong!” ~ unknowntalking heads cropped

The midweek Word-prompt on Weekly Prompts, the site I share with GC is Assumption, and when we discussed this word I assumed I would find it difficult to write about, let alone find a way to include the word.

Such a foolish assumption, it’s like saying I have nothing to talk about when in fact I can talk for England! Read More…
