Stagnating by @Roccoco_a_GoGo

TJ Paris was ‘Stag’nating until he went ‘pun’ny with this one.

Life is too short to drink bad wine

Did these sweet creatures instinctively know that I was about to leave and clustered about me in sympathy. I am sure they must have. Did these sweet creatures instinctively know that I was about to leave and clustered about me in sympathy. I am sure they must have.

Where the deer roam free

Far from the noisy city

I found stag nation

It’s Monday and Ronovan writes has thrown out a difficult coupling  – stag and noise.

I had to resort to a pun. Still, it has given me a chance to use the photo I took of the obliging deer that strolled about while I stayed in Magdalen College Oxford a few years ago. A wonderfully peaceful and beautiful place.

Ronovan writes promts this week are free and think. A lovely pairing indeed!
