sandra-crookThanks to Rochelle for hosting, and to Sandra Crook for her photo of Corfe Castle.

I visited Corfe Castle last September, it’s amazing. I posted quite a few photos on my blog and they are HERE if you’d like to see them!

Touch King Froggie’s castle to join in the fun (one never lays one’s hand upon a regal personage!)

      He’s probably aiming a bit high!

      I think it’s actually parked – a sight that’s fairly common here.

        Interesting! And pedestrians walk on the road?
        W-P is being difficult: these days I have to log in every time I leave a like or comment on your blog. 😦

        Unfortunately so, especially if they have baby buggies or mobility scooters.

        Sorry about that, I have no idea why! Thanks though for persevering Christine.

    It’s a great plan. Specially about not eating sprouts. 😂

    Love it, very entertaining…but I think it’s time for bed, as everything I read is making me laugh like a silly goose! Have a great day!

    I know Corfe Castle well. Slid down the grassy hills on my butt as a kid and Mum never got the stains out. Happy days.

    The list goes on, drive a steam train, fly like a bird. I do hope that Mille has lots of cash.

    Dear Keith,

    I love his outlook. Adorable story. Having had three little boys myself, I can see this one with a foil crown on his head and a bath towel for a cape. Delightful

    Every great plan gets interrupted by dinner time. Perhaps, after pudding he could continue the master plan and land on the moon. Besides, I saw Millie first.

    Heh, what great ideas for his future he has. Wonderful funny story, and so lovingly presented.

    An adorable story, Keith! I’m with him on the no sprouts bit. Who knows, our dreams can come true in one way or another.

    This is cute! I like how it is presented and so bang on. I think this is how kids still talk, I hope so anyway. Nicely done. ps Sprouts re yum with the right sauce! 😉

    Set your sights high, I always say. Lovely voice in this.
