And if you open my old front door and walk through, you will be utterly amazed at the sight that befalls your eyes. It is the picture below. Yes that is DURDLE DOOR, along from the village of Lulworth ion Dorset coast line.
If you look carefully with a little imagination you can see a Dragon or Giant Seahorse taking a long, very long drink.
A door is a movable structure used to open and close off an entrance, typically consisting of a panel that swings on hinges or that slides or rotates inside a space. But in this case the only thing moving is the Water flowing through ,and lots of it.

I have been tagged by Felix - http://felixrsv.wordpress.com/2012/03/20/kkak/
And from Laura; http://serendipityplus.wordpress.com/2012/04/06/tagged-again/
I am not sure I can do this but will give it a go. I hope that all people that get pulled in with me will also enjoy as much as I am ;( easily said..LOL..
The Rules, yes there are always Bloody rules and they are :……
1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!
OK so shall we begin, oh yeah! we need eleven questions that Mr Felix has given us, I shall search and hopefully not find… Oh damn found them, so lets give it a try read on fellow bloggers…..
Felix’s eleven questions
1. What is your earliest memory of yourself?
Apart from being born it was playing cork pop gun in the attic of our house. It was Christmas and I thought I was the Lone Ranger firing corks at tin plate figures on a spindle. I was aged about 4
2. Who was your first “internet friend”?
Facebook would qualify but people were already friends so i would say it was while I got involved in this world of Blogging. Nowadays I like to think I have many Cyber friends But the first ones would probably be Carol B Sessums and Marcy of Orples fame.
3. Answer one of the following:
Which Fictional Character is closest to your idea of an ideal partner/spouse?
Which Fictional Character does your partner/spouse remind you of?
Little red riding hood, young at heart but strong in mind. Oh of course she is now a forty plus woman now..
4. Have you gotten into a physical fight (as a grown-up, not as a child! ) with anyone?
Never! a few slanging matches (Verbal), strong disagreements, a few insults but nothing more. I am a peaceful person. My dad, who was a fighter in his youth, used to say,’It takes more courage to back away”
5. What is the most unusual food/meal you’ve eaten?
Winkles, many years ago and never again since. In case you are not sure Winkles are small snail like creature from the water. My mum and dad used to eat them regularly.
6. Has a book or movie made you cry? If yes, which one?
I love fantasy books, both the book and film of ‘Watership Down’ was near the mark for me.
7. This is cliched, yet.. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
About this time last year I set up WordPress and posted. However it was about Christmas time that i really took the plunge. I have three sites now, Gerry’Space, Writing Hell and one less used is Gerry’s Jaunts (Blogger by Google)
8. In ‘Deal or No Deal’, if there are only two briefcases remaining, (one is yours), and the remaining amounts are $1 and $1,000,000; Would you strike a deal or take the risk? xD
No question strike a deal, better some than none. Not greedy me,
9. If you won the $1,000,000 in the previous question, who would be the first person you’d call and tell?
My lawyer..Joking….no one really because the person that I would let know first would be with me in the audience…My wife..
10. “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?” This is a quote, a wonderful quote, by Satchel Paige. So, if you had no clue about your year of birth, how old would you think you are? Or quite simply, how old do you feel?
By looking at me before or after shaving and washing what hair I got?? Some days differ from one to another, younger today Egyptian tomorrow.
