Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

For the past month, we have been plagued by crane flies, aka daddy long legs. They have adorned our windows like Christmas decorations, attached themselves to the screen curtain at the front door, and one I even found in the toilet bowl. Now as to whether he was trying to do the breast stroke, got caught short mid flight, or simply dingled instead of dangled is anyone’s guess. He was ‘very calm’ anyway so I hope he didn’t suffer. At least I don’t use a bleach flush.
Apparently it has been their mating season, and not knowing how to tell the difference between male or female, we just had to put up with their dalliances, one of which went on for over an hour!
I found myself admiring their stamina, or perhaps they’d fallen asleep as so many of us do after coupling. Anyway, they eventually parted company, one leaving the vicinity altogether and the other staying put on the windows either catching a tan or ‘drying out’.
I’m not a fan of them though as they buzz as they flit and get stuck in my hair. They are not the most beautiful of creatures either, and to be honest, I would much rather see dragon or damsel flies close up. Much more interesting.
Dragon Flies and Damsel Fly photos are my own.
