Dear ladies, friends of Songbird and readers of this blog.
This is mr. Songbird speaking. I took over the blog for a day, it was necessary….
You may or may not know that I have invoked a veto for appearing on this blog. That lady of mine is never without a camera and therefore she ‘catches’ me doing this or that frequently, (often she catches me in the act of taking a power nap…..) and I do not want to be exposed to this world wide audience of her.
Consequence of her always logging that camera around is that I have never had any reason to take any pictures myself. Which of course resulted in her complaining that I never took a photograph of her.
Well I got her now. I recently bought myself a nifty little ‘guy-camera’ and I am in the process of learning how to handle it.
So when I recently took my gal to a day out on the town in honor of her birthday I was the man in charge of taking the pictures.
I thought it was only fair that I showed off those pictures myself here.
So please come along as I show you the medieval town of Kettwig in Germany.
I’ll be brief in my commentary, since typing up this little essay in English already took me an hour.
“We arrived in this little town and were greeted by this duck pond. Very nice. I took my time in photographing it.”
“As I turned around I caught Marianne taking my picture with her phone. I took that as a challenge, the game was on…”
“First things first, she dragged me into this romantic girly shop. Of course she had read about it online somewhere. Probably on a blog…”
“The shop was called Villa Smilla“
“Romantic it was all right. They had doves flying in the displays.”
“I caught her staring at this parasol for a long time. I foresee a parasol with lights and dangling bits in my future… “
“Took her long enough but finally she was ready to get out on the town with me”
“Lots of black slates walls.”
“Slates that formed intricate patterns”.
“I caught her here:”
“Ha, got you this time”
“Oh, oh she is on to me now…”
“Striking a pose…..
Looking good, my dear…. “
“Oops she is fed up with my paparazzo stuff. ‘Are you done yet?’ Sure honey but don’t you ever complain again that I don’t take your picture”.
“I am ready anyway. I’ve spotted a Biergarten.”
“Really nice town. Look honey, that old church is beautiful.”
“Marianne! where are you… “
“A door! Dear Lord, she is taking pictures of doors now!”
“Ah well, comes with the territory I guess”
“Well, this is it. Saying goodbye now. Hope you enjoyed my tour of Kettwig and coming along with me and my lady.
It was fun hanging out on the blog for a change, but I don’t think I am going to make it a habit. Blogging is better left to my woman.
Goodbye, from Mr. Songbird”
This is me again. Leave your laptop open for a moment and your blog is hijacked. He did a good job, didn’t he ladies? But I am not sure I want this many photos of myself appearing in a post…..
