Thoughts while driving. Sorry it’s so cryptic but it filled me with elation at the time so I thought I’d share. :)
blind freddie, performing, resign, seal
. Feeling satisfied with a new photograph … that makes it a good day.
Sammy got a new job?
I think he’s renounced work altogether! lol! thanks for reading, brian!

I’m so confused it’s untrue…
so sorry, mark… perhaps I should write the 500 page novel that ends with these immortal lines! lol. Maybe it has something to do with the b&w challenge…
Makes perfect sense in the literal sense – poor Sammy’s wasting away. ;) lol!
so glad it makes sense to someone, marion! you’re very sweet to comment!
I wonder who’s going to read it to him?
lol! good one, matt! I hadn’t thought of that…
Yep…I like it. :))
thanks so much, meg! if you know what it means, feel free to share! lol
I guess seals just aren’t cut out for it in the same way as guide dogs!
lol! another way of thinking about this that hadn’t occurred to me!! And strangely, at the end of my drive (to the vets), it did occur me to that I am now a Seeing Eye Person as my dog is blind and I’m the one guiding him up steps and round corners!! Thanks so much for contributing yet another interpretation, georgie!
nope, im lost…but i still like it a lot!
lol! maybe this is the blind leading blind freddie – or something! i love that you still like it, uncleblack!! and thanks very much for joining in!
and even more thanks for the watch! I bet you like cryptic crosswords too!
i like them, but i cant do them lol!!. pleasure. your photos are great.
Hmmm….sounds like Sammy might be some hard working bloke who is feeling very under-appreciated by his boss Freddie, who just doesn’t see how hard Sammy works. Sammy feels like a “performing seal” and has had enough of being taken for granted! He, he…. Actually, I haven’t got a clue, Nadine!!
I think you were very close, dot! and I appreciate you joining in on my cryptic piece. I’ve had to think it through to answer Jan below as she actually did some research on it, can you believe! So I think the only thing you missed was the nuance that even Blind Freddy could see the bleeding obvious that it’s time for Sammy to resign from performing all the time. I think I am Sammy and that’s why it filled me with elation :) thanks again!
I like Matt’s comment..lol. A bit confused but I like it amiga.
Thanks so much, rosa! I hadn’t realised ‘Blind Freddy’ is an Australianism. See my answer to Jan below if you can be bothered! :)
