Giant bubble wand, a photo by framboise on Flickr. Via Flickr: The best bubble wand in our extensive arsenal. Everyone needs a bubble wand arsenal in their dungeon. There’d be less violence in the world if all arsenals were stocked with bubble wands and bubble mix.
Random Photo Tuesday, reinstated as my 2013 lunar new year resolution. Penguins by framboise, on Flickr Fin, P and a bunch of penguins watched each other for a good 10 min one Sunday afternoon.
