"The time has come," the Walrus said,"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."
I love that verse from The Walrus and the Carpenter, some of which is quoted by Tweedledee and Tweedledum in Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, by Lewis Carroll;, Tweedledee and Tweedledum were subjects of a nursery rhyme, t00.
Actually, I felt sorry for the young oysters who were led astray and eaten. I see a number of metaphors in this poem. I wonder if this ditty is the first reference to the phrase "when pigs fly."
Instead of shoes, ships, and sealing wax, etc., I am speaking of sailboats, deer, Crepe Myrtle, sunRISE, a grasshopper (I think) but that photolog will have to wait as I have a few Slider hours or a day. We had a severe storm last night and WiFi was turned off by resort owner. I certainly don't blame him as rural electricity is more erratic. He did not want to fry his electronic equipment which has already happened at least once.
I had been catching up on surfing, blogging, e-mail at night which is a normal habit. This a.m. I am going fishing till more storms roll in. Husband and guide only got one keeper yesterday, so not optimistic. August is tough on this Lake. However, we've enjoyed this mini-vacation enough we may repeat it for gifts to ourselves. We really do hate gift buying as we have all we need, and usually, get what we want when we want, although we confer on high ticket purchases, like cars, computers, etc.
So am posting this unedited format -- with a small challenge if you wish to expound on various metaphors of The Walrus and the Carpenter.
