Those two are truly terrific.
I like the way you handle boathouses, and the snailed church and those priesting mussels are irresistible.

Quite possibly, Seth.
Once upon a time there was a kind of cleverish pun involved in this, but right now it eludes me. P'raps I should try to reconstruct, deconstruct, or repurpose it. Heh. The faculty of memory is never what it used to be.

Congrats to all

Such a lot of new entries here, and I've been and made myself scarce for too long ... however much I'd like to, I'll hardly get around to wave flags and shout hooray to every single one on the list, so I say: Congrats to y'all.

Hi JJ -

Have a gander at this: https://www.grc.com/never10.htm

Haven't tried it myself (not yet, I mean; at present I'm taking other measures), but probably will.

Good luck!

Looks very promising, this issue (as usual). Yes, well done, Ros!
I'm really looking forward to read it all. So far I've only read David's -- oh, great stuff! -- and admired the pictures.

Yes, the 'depth of experience' bit had me both fascinated and perplexed. Then I thought of Jimi Hendrix.

Re: Dove Cottage

That's a wonderful drawing, JJ.
Though I've never been there, I'd say it has a very authentic feeling, a spirit of place.
Did you draw it from real-life? or from a photo? (just curious)

Crypt Script The church in Astatine Town has a white, straight tower and two warped steeples that look like roguish devil horns.
