Pinch Punch...

...First day of the month. These lines always come into my head on the first day of every month. I think someone I was at school with used to follow this with her friends-not friendly at all I know. The sunflowers are beautifully dying. They can stay up as long as they will last and then drop their seeds for next year's crop.
Humpty Dumpty wishes you a happy Fall! As you can see by his face. I like the rhyme of Humpty Dumpty and looked it up on Wikipedia to see where it came from. One of the meanings is short clumsy person. It is not stated that the character is an egg, but it is thought that the rhyme was a riddle and you had to guess that he was an egg. He also could have been Richard the Third the 'hunchbacked egg' (from Shakespeare) Have you heard this version?
Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall,
Eating green bananas.
Where do you think he put the skins?
Down the King's pajama's
I have lit the fire for the first time this autumn. I did it for Tiger really-she loves the fire! Our old cat Boris used to lie in front of the old gas fire in the flat we lived in, and give it the look of love. The only other thing (person) that got the look of love was my Mum, who I think used to really spoil her when she went to stay!
It is only gas but it looks so real! It is one of the things that made us buy this flat.

When I started my little photo shoot tonight, Humpty was intact, apart from the already broken arm he had. This is what happened:-
Humpty Dumpty sat on the step,
To have his photo taken.
The step got moved and he fell off.
Now he is all broken.
By me-a tall clumsy person! Poor Humpty, I will have to get the superglue out later!

Oh, Kevin was the one who taught me "Pinch, Punch..." I'd never heard it (or felt it) until he did the first time.
I like your Humpty Dumpty version.

What a grumpy looking Humpty! I'm sure his accident hasn't improved that scowl.

I like your Humpty Dumpty musings :)
This fire looks just right for my cold. I could curl up with a book...

Fun Humpty Dumpty there, Sarah. Perhaps he knows what's in store for him -- thus, the grumpty face.

Ah, the fire... it soon will be cool enough for one here, I hope!
Take care!

I like grumpy Humpty. I'm sure he'll be fine once he's put back together though I doubt his disposition will change.

Aww, poor Humpty!

I'm quite envious of your fire Sarah... so cosy. Tiger sounds like a girl after my own heart. I've broken out my throws and blankets this week - definitely a nip in the air now.

Hope you have a luvverly weekend! K xx

Loving Mr. HD §;-) isn't he's cute?

Hope everything is in the best of health. Cold and rainy isn't the best time.


Hey Harriet said...

Awww...poor Humpty Dumpty!

I like your cute Humpty version. If it's any consolation to you, I'm very clumsy also. I bulk buy superglue ;D

I'm excited about the progress of my birdie!
