“the number one animal in my book of fascinating creatures.”

morning table

Overheard, after we saw a snake in the compost box: I’ve already seen the number one animal in my book of fascinating creatures.

Observed by Grandad John: This is probably the first time the term “alluvial fan” has been used for a sand construction at this lake. (I’m making the Nile, the 5 year old announced.)

3 year old’s assessment of spot prawns dipped in garlic butter: I like them, and I don’t like them.

1st book brought to me in my bed in the morning, to be read before breakfast of pancakes and sausages under the vines: When I Was Young in the Mountains.

  1. As a Professor of Geography, I must commend you for having the geographic term “alluvial fan” on your blog. I cannot recall any other blog over many years using this term. I look forward to further geographic terminology in your blog in future.

    1. It goes on being as beautiful and wise as I remember. I had to explain why the grandmother cried at her grandson’s baptism but that was an interesting moment…!
