This World Goes Round and Round


Well hi ho blogger friends, here I am still alive, and with a small but beautifully formed post for your viewing pleasure.

The sunset the other night had all the foreshadowing of a beauty...


... even to the blazing end.

They look even better embiggerated. Click on them.

  1. "Embiggerated"? Is that an NZ dialect word? Can a human being be "embiggerated"? Are there any other NZ words I should know before, hopefully, jetting there? In Cambodia, a rather surly NZ man asked if I was a "pom" and I said no - I am a Yorkshireman. Lovely sunset pictures by the way.

  2. Oh YP, of COURSE 'embiggerated' is a word! Where have you been? In the wilds of Yorkshire or something?

    Actually if my hero Terry Pratchett can call Alzheimer's an 'embuggerance', I can embiggerate things.

  3. A stunning sunset, Katherine. It's good to see you putting in an appearance. I, and I'm sure I'm not alone, miss you.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous photographs. "Embiggerated" I understood immediately, but being a dumb Yank I had to think for a second or two before the light came on for "Enzedism"...we don't say "zed" you know, we say "zee"....

  5. Robert - Ah yes, 'zee'. I learnt off watching Sesame Street that you say it a funny way.
