Cannon and Ball

KL Caley is our host for the write photo challenge. You can join in too by clicking here
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a black rainsplattered cannon looking out of a battlement. In the distance you can see a town and a monument on a hillside.

We go together like chalk and cheese you know.
Me and the balls over there.
What balls?
Those balls………. the ones in the brass monkey.
A monkey?
Yes, a brass monkey is used to hold the cannon balls.
Brass monkey? Aren’t the balls cold?
Now you’re getting personal…………………




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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    Lol What did the Pope say when he caught the brass monkey holding the canon’s balls? That’s a question not part of a joke πŸ™‚
