What we expect we get, sometimes.

When we don’t win the day, have our say, we try to look at something completely new instead and then return to the fallen idol another time.

We may be wrong. We may be way off.

But you never know. And we hope no war was visited at all.

Still. I’m itching to know the answer.

Don’t you worry.


Here and there.

In a hurry.

The snow doesn’t want to create a flurry.
