KL Caley has taken over the reins from Sue Vincent as host for the Thursday Writephoto challenge.
Her first picture choice is of Neptune, and you can find out more about joining in here if you are not familiar with the challenge.

Neptune Image by KL CALEY

He often wondered where he’d gone wrong. He was a Sea God for heaven’s sake, and here he was fishing!!
Salacia had a lot to answer for, and he could hear her chortling in the kitchen as he tried to ‘catch’ dinner without harming any of the fish in the lake.
She certainly had a weird sense of humour. Somehow sea kelp or weeds didn’t appeal, but she promised she would make whatever he caught a meal fit for a King.
Trident poised, he took aim, but the only thing caught was his temper and her amusement as she snapped a shot of him in mid pose.
‘You can come in now Neppie’ she called.
He hated it when she called him that.
‘Coming dear,’ he replied, finally dragging a cloak of slimy green behind him.
Wonder what tin she’d opened today…………………. he quite fancied tuna.

About pensitivity101

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.
