Oh Boy! Apart from some electrical and electronic goods, that's almost everything! Just have to find the most photogenic/extravagant/ridiculous thingy and try to capture it in a breathtaking way.

That's the easy way out!  (Though if I can't think of/find something 'other,' I might resort to it too.)

My old, battered piggybank has lived with me for over forty years. Her rubber 'belly button' has long since crumbled and decayed, but with the help of a kitchen towel 'stopper,' she still holds our coppers, till she is too heavy to be lifted. Then there will be a 'lot of shaking going on,' before the coins are collected and taken to a sorting machine.

Today I took her into the (sloping, no real Dutch angle here!) garden for the very first time, and don't she look happy?

I'm not sure whether I could put this little story with the entry, but decided to play it safe and post it here.

Looks like the piggy is hunting for truffles.

I have got the beginnings of a thought in my head about this one. So we shall see how it goes.

Yeah, I thought that. The poor silly thing might have a very vague, inherited memory of truffles, but obviously lost the plot in her years spent as a beauty queen.

Beginnings of thought are a good thing Howard! Keep the process going!
