Why There Will Never Be Any Pictures On This Blog …

… because I don’t know how to get pictures onto a blog except pictures of lovely Ian Somerhalder (see A Bit Of Totty For Dotty). And if I did know I still wouldn’t put them on because what pictures would I show you? Photos of me? As if. Photos of horses in tutus or pigs in bikinis? Why do people like that sort of thing? Sketching, drawing, painting – nope, the best I can do is Beryl the Peril and nobody knows who she is nowadays. Oh, and I once painted a sailor’s chest with a Rosie and Jim scene that turned out quite good actually, but somebody spilled nail varnish remover on it so I painted it white.

So if you’re expecting pictures and photos and shit, you’ll have to look somewhere else.



EDIT EDIT EDIT  – A few weeks later and I can do SOME THINGS WITH PICTURES. I’ve learned how to put them on a page on the left and in the middle. And I can put WORDS INSIDE PICTURES. So there WILL be pictures after all, and GOOD ONES too.

  1. I remember Beryl the Peril. In the ‘Dandy’, or was it the ‘Beano’?

  2. Oh, Dotty:

    No pictures? I can understand. When I first started my blog, I trolled through the Internet looking for copyright free photos, and I found myself wasting a lot of time doing this, when I realized, “What are you doing, Dunderhead? You’re married to an artist, and you have the legal right to post his work, because you both own the copyright on it.”

    So, yes, you will see pictures on my site. Thank you for subscribing. I am checking the little box at the end of this to subscribe to you as well, because I think you’re funny, and we can never smile too much.

    • Dear middleagedplague,
      I like your husband’s pictures, the landscapes are lovely but I like the building a kidney one best. Can I have him? (not really, I’m promised to another).
      Love Dotty xxx

    Dear Dotty,
    You changed your mind?

    • Dear Ms P,
      No not really- I didn’t have pictures because I didn’t know how to do them. I still can’t get them to go where I want, they keep shagging up my posts but I’m learning as I go along so one day this page might be put to rest.
      Love Dotty xxx

  4. Nice to have a bit of light madness in the world! Everything’s far too serious anyway! 🙂
    Thanks for the follow… I will do the same!

  5. I LOVE Ian Somerhalder. He’s one of my Hollywood crushes. You should definitely consider putting his pictures up LOL.

    Keep smiling,


Write a little note to Dotty.
