a smaller pond
I haven’t been out to the beach for any number of reasons lately, so I’m making do with this puddle at an abandoned lot where I take the poodle for a run now and then…..When beetles fight these battles in a bottle with their paddles
and the bottle’s on a poodle and the poodle’s eating noodles…
…they call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle
bottle paddle battle.
