I’ve Invented Time Travel So You Won’t Rob My House

Today’s Six Word Saturday:

Going to be a geek today.

I’m going to an aviation fair at Manchester Airport, to watch the planes, wear a cagoule and eat ham sandwiches.  It’s the start of the eight-week summer holidays and I need all the cheap activities I can get.

People are always warning bloggers not to give out personal information that thieves will find useful, so I’m really typing this tomorrow and back-dating it.  I’m here, right now, at my computer, and won’t move from the house all day.

I had a great time at the aviation fair (bloggers should also make up stuff to keep the reader interested) and the ham sandwiches were yummy.  I met an interesting man and dumped the Hub and kids for a life spent trailing after him, cluttering up the house with airline pins and model planes…oh, wait – that’s my present life…

Inventing time travel was easy, but can anyone tell me how to get the Six Word Saturday logo on to my sidebar?  I just can’t do it.

There’s never a geek around when you need one.

    Right click on the logo, save picture as 6ws or whatever. After that, you’re on your own!

    Have a good time at the airport. or if you’ve already been, I’m glad you had a good time. We have free fireworks tomorrow night for my grandson (17 and 11/12ths): I hope he’s not to old for such pastimes!

    Hey Tilly you are very wise to keep Mum! I was so tempted to make posts about France while I was there. Glad you enjoyed your day out!

    Time travel can be inordinately useful, as long as you don’t get caught en route. That could be messy.
    I love watching planes. It’s my favourite, I could do it all day.

    Who knew all we needed to time travel was a little blog magic? I’m always careful about what information I give out online regarding our travels. And then I realize my husband is chronicling the whole thing on his Facebook. Grr, husband.
