But I didn’t…


Thursday 04 June, 2015 by Uncle Spike

When I was a lad, a youngster, a tearaway, I would seek out mischief wherever and whenever I could. It’s the solemn duty of being a kid…. isn’t it?

A week or so ago, I found myself back in Bodrum, on the western coast of Türkiye; and as it happened, I came across a rather tempting challenge….

Rocks are put on this earth to hurl, throw, roll or smash; according to the doctrine of boyhood from whence I grew up 🙂

Now look at this beauty…. perched on a steep hillside. It’s just asking to be let loose for an afternoon roll!!




However, I was sad to admit that common sense go the better of me; and I let sleeping rock to go about its own business.

Damn – I’ve become a grown-up 😦

    A wise choice indeed, and the people at the bottom of the hill are grateful for your maturity.

    Ah yes, the difference between a child and an adult is that adults realise that actions have consequences and not always good ones!

    Ahhh so glad your instinct subsided judging from the photo could have done some damage below….if it didn’t reach the waters!

    … but the instincts are still intact and that counts 😉
