It is comfortable to drive into an underground car park in town, but strenuous to climb the stairs afterwards to get to the top. We naturally took the lift.RDP Saturday: Steps
The lamp looks quite harmless. It is in our living room in the apartment. You switch it on when it begins to get too dark and switch it off when you retire to bed. Simple really, but I think this lamp is possessed.
Every evening at approximately 7.00 p.m. it begins to flicker. Not just flicker but on an off constantly for about two minutes. I know that two minutes is a short time, but when you have on and off all the time it seems quite a long time. Dark-light-dark-light and we do not know why. Of course this is only during the Winter months. Otherwise during the Summer it begins around 9.00 pm. due to daylight saving time with a two hour difference. The lamp waits for it to get dark enough to be switched on.
Is there a genie in the lamp? Is it cursed? Did something happen in our apartment at this time once to cause this reaction? As far as we know no-one has ever been mudered, or disappeared. We just watch it happen every evening. The electric bulb has never been replaced, it has never exploded. We are keeping an eye on it and waiting for the evening when it does not happen. Although perhaps that would not be so good. Perhaps it has to happen to keep the spirits happy.RDP Saturday: Luminescence
I always pass this house on my way to town and often something like this at the entrance. I think it is a good idea. If you have objects no longer needed, in this case books, just put them in a basket with a label saying free. I always stop and have a look This time he was clearing out the books, probably from his grandchildren. I had a quick look and was tempted by the book about making things, the one with the green cover, but I wheeled on. I hope someone finds something they need.RDP Saturday: Diversity
Where there is a shadow there is always some light and that can be a threat.
I must remember to close the blinds better when I take my midday sleep after lunch.RDP Saturday: Shadows
You see some strange objects when in town. Just this afternoon I was in town with my scooter. I had a purchase to make in a special store and as I had enough time I decided to take the route along the river.
And then I saw the shoes: no feet, no humans, just shoes and not even matching pairs. Some were for the right foot and some for the left and in various colours. They lead to a door which was closed.They were very nice shoes, leather and fashionable. If I was still a walker I might have removed a pair to wear, but that was the problem. There were no pairs. Perhaps it was someone with only one foot that left the shoes, although as sometimes the right shoe, and sometimes the left shoe was missing, only footless humans could be involved.
I decided to go home, keeping an eye open for someone searching for a missing shoe.RDP Saturday: Strange
There was a time, 30 years ago approximately, that I decided to become divine, but he was not interested. He was heartless and ignored me.RDP Saturday: Divine

There is variety everywhere on the local market. Cinderella’s fairy godmother decided to take the one on the right. It would make a perfect carriage to take her to the ball.RDP Saturday: Variety
I was reminded of a film from 1967 where Audrey Hepburn played the role of a blind woman. Somehow she unknowingly had a doll stuffed with drugs and the the showdown was at the end of the film where the gangsters broke into her appartment (she was alone at home) for the drugs. She could cope with darkness through her other senses but the crooks could not. I remember the closing scene where where she plunged her home completely in darkness, breaking all the lights to keep ahead. I found this trailer showing part of the film.
It was many years ago, but the scene quite impressed me at the time.RDP Saturday: Darkness
No-one sleeps when I am on patrol
I am the King, that is my goal
Hens stay awake, this is not a beg
There is work to do, so lay an egg
The fox might come, I must protect
I am on guard, am not henpecked
Cock a doodle do, that is my cry
Jump up and cluck, stop falling of the sky
