THE HEAD UPON THE NAIL

 

 

 

‘I hit the nail on the head ‘

That’s what’s you said.

The head of what?

I’ve lost the plot

I don’t get it

you surely hit

the head upon the nail.

    Hmm, got to work this out now. How many brain cells will it take? I will phone a friend - Bill Posters or someone.

      Bill Posters will go up the wall - try Miss Berles

        You certainly ‘nailed’ your artwork!

        Taking flight or safe landing?

          Ah Mon Oncle -one of my favourite films by my favourite film comedian - Jacques Tati - now that really does hit the head on the nail.
          Thanks A xxxx

          You magician you.....what a stunning capture of your beautiful bird! As for nails, he looks as though he is tiptoeing to avoid them.

            Wait until you see the one I'll be posting tomorrow - he'll bring a smile to your face - thanks Lorna

            This reminds me of how my older brother taught me the art of winning a fight was all in the mind. One had to convince one's opponent to hit one as hard as they possibly could with their face upon ones moving fist. It sounded a complex idea but proved simplicity itself in application.

              That's what I love about this site - you pick up such useful information - thanks for the tip dusk. It's back to my bed of nails for me now. Must get to sleep in time to wake up!

              I hit my head upon the wall I find a nail is much too small...
              Love the pic! is that a stork? with its aprehensive walk?
              BRAVO M.E. Bravo

              • Michael Edwards

                It's a little bit sort of storkish
                it certainly isn't hawkish

                cheers Andrew :)
