SIMPLY ORANGES THREE
Caps with flaps or Santa hats
Presented here for thee and thee,
A modest image as sure as you please
Of simply orange oranges three.
Somehow – how, I do not know, nor care to fathom – I missed this post. Bloody hell! Kinda late to wish you a Happy Christmas and all that but I can still tell you that I very munch enjoyed your lovely oranges (much better than the fat one we won’t mention) and sweet little poem.
You, milady, are a talented one, to be sure! xoxoxoD
ooh, I like this Jots, been so long since I’ve been over. Shame on me!
I think often what it must be like to have your talent. Beautiful!.
This seems to be the only place one can get a decent ‘orange’ these days. When’s fig season?
Thank you, Lisa. Coming from you means a great deal. Be safe. Please. Raye
What a fun poem paired with a very-nice watercolor —- green leaves can be very challenging, and you did a fantastic job! feliz navidad!

Hey Sista-Sista…..Happiest of Days to you and yours, especially this holiday time of year. Enjoy so much your talent(s) and your loving ways of sharing. Feliz Navidad, Lisa. XOXRaye
Happy Days to you as well! As you know, each day gives enough material to write a novel, from upbeat and happy tales to somber ones that wrench one’s heart… just returned from two weeks on the coast – just in time to watch a school’s holiday event .. amazing!
i’m ‘itching’ to get back into serious painting, but am still moving things out of Casa Loca and trying to figure out where to store/put it all. soon… soon, there will be time for painting!
you are doing FANTASTIC work!
It’s always a treat to see your work. It’s especially nice to see something orange in color with no political strings attached.

Yes, Darling, no doubt you knew I thought about that “orange” thing but decided to jump out the window and hope for a soft landing anyway. Hoped no one would notice especially you. Fat chance. Missing your words. New shovel on the way. Need new and improved mucking out experience. Boots on the ground….
Those are some nifty oranges. Beautiful green leaves too.
Enjoy the holidays, Rae. Looking forward to more of your posts in 2017.
How you doing Carol? Make it through your storms? Weather related and other? Thinking about you….been where you are. Strong thoughts of support coming your way. Raye
Wow. Beautiful. What talent!
The brightest oranges I have seen, and complemented with leaves so green
You may regret your post in verse: it can only go from bad to worse!
You are too clever.
Too clever for words
And I’m finding it difficult
To rhyme nouns and verbs.
We both do much better
With shape, form and colour.
But you, Sweet Sweet Anne
Paint like no other!
Happiest of Holidays,
Too kind, but thanks! Merry Christmas and a new, improved 2017!
Raye, thanks for the taste of sunshine. Keith
We all need an extra dose of sunshine now and again! Happy Christmas, Keith, to you and yours. Raye
A simple, elegant, beautiful piece for all to enjoy. Not only many thanks for sharing your visual treats, I greatly appreciate your gift of wit … and of course I have a treat for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qILBxHIvtdk … Bestivus of Christmas and the season to you.
Of course, aFa…I was waiting for this….tango-ing in the snow. Could have done last week. Not so much this week!!! Let this be our secret and keep from My Reader…I value your sensibilities, our engaging long-distance friendship….and your wicked, wicked sense of humour. Here’s to US!…..Raye
Thought you would enjoy this … (as well as the previous tango and the roses). … and ditto ditto ditto … cheers!
That was fabulous, Frank! (Can’t believe I missed this post… eesh)
Missing RRR is not a good thing.
No, it is not…. especially now that she has become so stingy with us 😉 (said with love, RRR, we just want more of you😙)
Teasing and tempting us in a stingy way … leaving us wondering what she will dangle the next bait for us to nab. (Timely for her current post). 😉
Indeed. It is because Raye posted today that I checked my inbox looking for her Elephant reblog that I wanted to comment on, that I saw I had missed this one… strange sequence of events, I’ll grant you…
Missy Lovely D and aFa….joining you both in the Green Room (we have one, don’t we?). A room where they serve both gourmet snacks and easy listening Tango music….I’m the one cemented in the corner on a plastic chair, mouth full of tasty bits, waving my dance card. See me?
Absolutely! Frank, it’s Raye’s turn for a dance!
You don’t need a dance card to be noticed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcreQPUgt4k
Ha! You just like the tux on that guy, right. Her dress? Didn’t notice. You?
Of course I didn’t notice … just saw that it was a red dress.
Not red. Black. No back. No front. No sides…wait…one side.
See … I didn’t notice her! 😉
I do love your work! Merry Christmas
…and I love it when I hear from you! Thank you always, Hugh. Happy Christmas to you and yours. Raye
