Tale Weaver – #300 – Bubbles – November 5th.

I used to love bubbles as a kid. Every Christmas we would have one of those little cylinders with the ring cap that you blew your bubble through, or waved it through the air and it would leave a trail of them. Somehow using washing up liquid when it ran out was never the same.

At a Big Weekend celebration when we were on the boat, there were huge bubbles for kids to play in, trying to keep upright as they rolled around on an air cushion.
The pictures below are mine.

It made me realise how much skill was involved in ‘Gladiators’ and their Atlasspheres challenge.

And don’t we just love it when our pets react to bubbles

These are google images, not dogs I know.

Years ago, my works department clubbed together and bought our boss a bubble gun.
We were on the top floor of the building and he had a whale of a time ‘shooting’ at the people below.

But here’s a thought for Firework Night:
What if someone could invent a ‘firework’ that dispensed bubbles rather than sparks?
Not much good in the dark perhaps, but pretty nonetheless, and silent!

Now we have ‘bubbles’ of a different kind, people who are allowed to mingle in their own select group, be it a classroom, office, or just a couple of households with one occupant who have got together trying to hold on to their sanity and some kind of normalcy.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. You know your bubble fireworks would be a great way for people to enjoy the festivities during the day! Not a bad idea! Colored bubbles, different shapes, some that pop quick, some that just linger…
