Day One

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!

Okay, strictly this is a bottle cap, but the top of the bottle is in the image AND it is bursting with HAPPINESS which we all could do with at the moment. Not that I am a fan of the actual drink. This poster was seen in Raglan, on New Zealand’s North Island, a lovely little surfing town, not unlike some of the villages in Cornwall.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. High minded comment alert! Hope nobody takes this as a free advert for this firm, the world’s most pollutant in producing plastic waste. Nice photo though.

  2. I think that is a perfect poster for times like this. While I am shopping my one treat some of the trips is to stop at the soda machine and buy myself one can of Coke. I enjoy it but there is so much sugar and I really don’t drink much soda. I was in Atlanta, GA, US about a year ago and that is where they have a Coca Cola factory. The trees all have red and white lights and the building has a huge bottle illuminated on it. I will have to locate some pictures now that I am thinking of it!

  3. very clever – as for your idiom I agree ‘cherry on top’ works great, but you could have also had ‘on top of the world’ as the cap is the crown of the bottle 😉 and even ‘room at the top’ as last time I looked Coca Cola was first in terms of market share!!

    1. me again, you could have also used ‘Top and Tail’ since Bottle top is a great word combination 😀

      1. Oh, yes, I suppose so. I’m not much good at this one with the words. Too many ‘on top of the world’.

  4. Giving the game away on a few of your future posts, but it looks good. I thought for a moment you’d taken the photo too 🙂 🙂
