A verandah or not…

I found out the other day, that little laneways used to be called snickets!

While this is a verandah at the back of our shopping centre, the lighting made me think of snickets.

My new favourite word.

Who the Hell?

I’ll admit it – I’ve been watching “Dr. Who” since the 60’s, and not even “Planet of the Spiders” gave me the creeps as much as the “Weeping Angels” does. So after not seeing the landscape along North Terrace, Adelaide, for decades, when the bus rounded the corner a few months ago, I at last saw this concrete horror in the front of one of Adelaide’s older homes on North Terrace. I don’t mind admitting that my stomach actually lurched at the sight.

It still gives me the creeps!
