LITTLE BEN............


Now you have seen my photos
Of my Bill and Ben
What you may not realise
Is they have a nephew Little Ben.

Now little Ben was naughty
he went out one day
he wanted to see the seaside
and of he went away.

Bill and ben were very cross
as nowhere he could be found.
Until a passing seagull
told them where he was around.

hed gone up to the beach front
to take a look around
not a place for Little flower pot men
he could have been drowned.

But little Ben was happy
he sat upon the beach
and took a walk along the monster thing
that runs along just within his reach.

He was having a lovely time
he didnt really care
when someone tried to look for him
it gave us all a scare..

He even found a little friend
although he was made of stone
he played with him a little while
Then thought
its time for me to go home……

i think its time for tea now
ive had such a happy time you see
and i hope you all enjoyed this Blog…….
especially you TT.

Excellent Hollyeves! Would love to have seen the looks on passers by faces as you put a flower pot man on the beach etc and photographed him! I don't know about flower pot men, they were probably thinking ' potty woman'!!!!!!
