King GarGar himself nearly drowned when the flagship of his naval squadron was rammed and sunk by the enemy.  With a few of his men, His Majesty managed to find a skiff that could hold the party of five.  At this point of the battle, the captain of the flagship Pirouette went down with his vessel, while the King and his party made it to shore in time to see the remnants of the fleet go up in flames, lighting up the horizon with an eerie glow.

The first mate of the Pirouette tried to take command of the skiff, unaware that his sovereign was part of the beleaguered little crew.  “Sit down, you wretch,” said GarGar impatiently.  “If you’re not careful, I’ll have my hangman cut that saucy tongue out of your mouth!” He added.

Cee’s FOTD Challenge: January 28, 2020

Orchid 3The fleshy petals of this orchid look almost like icing or marzipan to me.   Last week, or perhaps the week before, I posted a number of orchids.  This one is from that period.  It somehow fell through the cracks, but here it is as a lovely surprise for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge!

Now if I were a greedy person, I’d save these two for another day, but that’s not me.   Orchids really are amazing.  I’ve never had luck with them.  Being the companion of so many cats makes keeping plants and flowers in the house a losing proposition.  The price of love!
