Me n MO.

By Tooma
This being a Silly Sunday Shot, it is a bit mad. To explain; we found ourselves with a spare 12"x10" picture frame, about which we wondered, "What could we put in it?". We thought, apart from our wedding pics, we don't have any shots of us together; I've taken shots of MO, and she's taken shots of me, so rather than go to a photographer, heaven forbid we should pay one of those chancers, or ask one of our non talented but perfectly formed neighbours to take some pics of the pair of us, MO took it upon herself to handle the task.

Well, we had this reasonable pic, quite rare, of moi, which she had taken in a lovely wee tea-room at North Queensferry, which just so happens to be to the north of South Queensferry over the Firth of Forth in the east of the fair country of Scotland, but it only featured moi, solo, so she determined to use her digital maniplation skills to insert herself into the frame. To be inserted once was not enough to satisfy the dear girl, she was on a creative roll having achieved one successful insert, she even changed the view out of the window, and with the creative juices flowing, off she went - once more - then again, but still not satisfied, she added Belle, the oft visiting neighbour's tabby cat, then, yes then, I tells thee, she could not leave out the sweet Sterling, that famed cat of spying fame, The Watcher, another neighbour's cat, also previously featured in these hallowed pages. So, there we have it dear adoring readers and viewers, instead of a mere pic of she and me, we have that and more, plus a cat, and another cat.

If you are still with me, say goodby to three minutes of your life which has just flown past in a wordy sonic boom, but I felt you dear readers were worthy of a full explanatory explanation of this piece of art by my her indoors, my dearest MO, aka Morag Skite. Enjoy - in glorious technicolour, "Me n MO".

This is truly a Silly Sunday story and image. Just think how many neighbour things she could have put in that wallpaper and your cup too. Maybe she did. Like they say the couples that play together stay together. Have fun. It's great.

What Bertie and Phil said! Well, I shall count that as three minutes of my life well spent! 🤣 The ageing orbs and synapses have been gloriously entertained and I therefore present you with this gleaming gong. 🏆 😀

A super idea for a family portrait, which is different from the normal. How does Mo feel being left outside, when the cat get into the house? Some good work by Mo in producing the final result.
