Actions speak louder than words so don’t annoy me with cross words.

The cross words found in newspapers should be our only cross words.

Cryptic ones are crazy challenges that play with words.

Watch your step.

Watch your step.

This is a cryptic post you may not follow what it is actually on about you might find it is a total waste of time. Time is the problem in places like waiting rooms, when you don’t take a book to read. But there is usually a lot of uninteresting reading matter and this may be the time you feel like having a cross word.

There is lots to watch here.

It is better to fritter your time away on a cross word than getting all up-tight  There should never be a cross word just an innuendo inserted in the right place. The intro is over now into the crazy crypt crossword.

Could the answer to the puzzling one across be ‘love’, no not enough letters four is not enough. Ignorance is no good, knowledge is needed to succeed. We have to know another word for love. Love is too ambiguous implying romance passion and lust. We have to be precise and know compassion. That’s it one across, compassion, if we have that right four down will be easy. Four down, is found in a doctors waiting room? Eight letters, patients that’s what’s needed.

Incredible what we do to be outstanding.

This one is easy. The clue is, Dance then drink part of a cup of tea an go? Too easy Tango and they say it takes two to Tango. Yes reciprocity is a must for a congenial relationship.

Does it out do those old cathedrals.

Does it surpass those old cathedrals?

So what have we got right, no four letter words the right words are all nice . We have compassion, patience and Tango. Four down has twelve letters. It has to be perseverance, that  ties it all in.

Clue to twenty across, nine letters, there are two words in the clue. The last words to end of a fairy tale’. Well if you must have the last word, the fairy tale relationship is, all over, no all over is only seven letters, but it is all over if you always have the last word.

Another building in the same area.

Another building planted close by.

Fairy Tales have happy endings, happy endings has too many letters. The last words of all fairy tales, is they all lived happily ever after. That is, the last words to end a fairy tale. Ever after I can’t add an s so I am one letter short.  I Tried but I failed but I did not fail to try.

These buildings grow on you.

I need a little help from my friends. What is the very end of a fairy tale? Two words nine letters.

Zeebra will agree with this in her “time out for art”

  “You are not going to post that rubbish?” My ego enquired,

“Why not?”

“Your grandkids can do better drawings and the photos are just snap shots.”

“Because I am not a genius you would have me doing nothing but sit around watching TV. I am not hurting anyone enjoying a pastime, people with no mobile phone to play with would be left twiddling their thumbs and getting up tight and impatient. “

Keeping up with the news.

So why not show other people that they do not need an expensive toy or talent to look at the wonderful world around them. Matt Groening did not let it stop him while he was waiting, he drew Bart Simpson. I enjoy the lulls in life, instead of getting impatient, I draw and it is relaxing and takes my mind off myself. Even when you have some discomfort the diversion will take your mind off what is ailing you.

I am on the bus, what are you doing.

My sketching is not for other people, it is for my enjoyment. Critics can knock it, that is no problem, as long as the comments are constructive, I can learn from criticism and if it is intended to upset me I can laugh at it. Then like a gift that is not accepted, it will remain with the giver. Dale Carnegie said “When someone hands you a lemon, make lemonade.” Your friends will not knock your efforts, at the worst they may have a laugh and laughter is good. When the first baby laughed, that was the beginning of fairies, according Peter Pan.

I am on the bus too, I didn't see you get on.

My sketching helps my memory; I can recall details of places and things after sketching them. Like photos they are good to look back on, but you can add a bit of yourself in a drawing, a camera just shows the facts; the artist is at liberty to alter the composition, leave things out or add in. When I say artist I am including myself, because if I don’t, no one else will. Yes an artist can distort, or get really abstract.

Drawing is like playing the ukulele, the more you practice the better you get. It is that way with most things. I say most things but I can’t think of anything that doesn’t improve with practice. It may take a lot of time and practice so the sooner you start the better. That is my biggest fault I started too late. I let my ego get in the way of a lot of things when I was young. Thinking I might look silly or it was not masculine. Groucho Marks did not worry about being silly and John Wayne is dead, so don’t be shy, have a go.
