There is something about discount stores that brings out the famous in all of us.

Thanks Everybody
I really do appreciate the touble you all take to comment. With a post such as this, it's always interesting - and sometimes instructive - to know how they compare one to another.

Taking up Jingle's point, yes indeed, they do have rules. As I have explained before, I do not always stick to all of them. There are Haiku and there are Haiku on my blog. The Haiku attempt to give the essence of a moment - what has come to be known as The Haiku moment - and to stick to the rules, as I understanf them. The others are no more than a bit of fun - usually on a topical subject - in Haiku form. I did outline my thoughts on this for those who might be interested here

My thanks for the awards. Very much appreciated.

The cat Shadow, fits in very neatly curled up in the plastic basket on top of the bottles. I'm just afraid that one day the recycle men might not notice him.
