Purple or not purple?

I remember once, long time ago in Sicily, I was working at a Horse Racecourse. I was very good, never made a mistake and everybody loved me. The winner used to bring me gifts, chocolates, hats or just a nice tip. Then it happened. The incriminated day I decided to wear a purple/lilac shirt. If […]

Photography challenge

  I had finally found 2 minutes to take a quick photo of my new creations. I choose a place with nice light and set up the kanga and the necklaces, everything looks perfect. While I focus i see something moving…a white paw! I shout: c’mon Muffin move! She didn’t…
