Dada Fan (against the heat)

I made a Dada fan out of my collages.....

Sorry friends that I´m so absent ..... I will not write a private article on the www - but I just want to let you know, that I am very busy at the moment with different issues. I´m missing you and KK and I hope that I will be back end of August/ beginning of September!

Theme of the Week - Games Without Frontiers

Looks like my turn to pick theme again - how's this one ? Games can include all sports and down to the simplest board game maybe. The Peter Gabriel song just popped into my head for some reason - all this nonsense about Brexit I guess! (What a mess!) Anyway, have fun as always!

First Sweet, than Sour ...

"Now Cheers., here's to you our sweet precious queen ..
it's a pity your birthday this year is on our 'Halloween',
but first eat and drink as much as you can, it's your party, your show"

(Oh how I wished I could have read this poem to Edgar Allen Poe)
