Snipping Tool


I've just discovered a tool that does a screen capture exactly where you want it and in any freehand shape. I am posting this to remind me it exists because I have already forgotten where I found it...

Hen with Three Beaks.

Experimenting in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator but am not inspired. I'm off to watch the runner beans grow. Multi hot today. Tourists flooding into town.

Cheese before bed dreams led to me thinking I was in the Spanish civil war last night...in the mountains...on the run...er?

Seabird


New renters up the road with three snarling dogs, white van, black windows. Beach dinghy tied to the wall of the house. You know...those sturdy black and orange things that can fit twenty or so ...people.
I suppose Henry and his invisible wife will turn up soon. Got to get to Scotland before all transport in Europe grinds to a halt.
I have two choices for music over the summer holidays but which do I choose?

I cannot make up my mind so give me a hand...

New Nibs.

Only taken me a year or so to actually open up the nib holder and try out a different nib on the digital pen. This one positively glides across the tablet...like drawing on glossy paper with a Rotring pen. The other one felt like a pencil. Neither is better, just different.

Many new and varied fashion statements rolling into town. I bet they don't wear the same clothes at home.

Granny goes to the Show

It's boiling. One swimmer in the sea. The bare legs are out. The cars with tinted windows and Andorra number plates glide through the pot-holed streets.

Here's a fellow with magic in his fingers...and probably his soul.
