More from our underwater nexpedition!

(c) Durham Artist Ingrid Sylvestre, North East England UK

Hello again, dear Bloggy-friends! We've all been nexceptionally busy catching up on everything back here at Necky Knoll House. Our main sprout-harvesting season has begun, and we're also in the middle of our November Dream Digging time.


However, I've managed to go through some of our photos and films from our underwater nexpedition, and thought I'd start by posting our recording of Captain Gurgle singing his famous Tea Shanty! Necky Becky had a great time with some of the prompting and chorus.

If you'd like to join in with the song, the lyrics feature in an earlier post, which also introduces Captain Gurgle. There are also more of our songs on our Nex Factor YouTube Channel.

Derrick said...

Such a talented bunch you all are, Raph! Happy Dream Digging.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Thank you Derrick! We've been having a very festive dream digging this year - with combined thoughtfulness and merriment!

Heather said...

I share Captain Gurgle's partiality for a nice cuppa. Love his song but expected his voice to be deeper. Good luck with the sprout harvest and I love that underwater picture.

Rosemary said...

Lovely sea song, Way to go Necky Becky. The middle of Nov. Dream Digging time sounds so intriguing.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

We all love a nice cuppa here, Heather - you're welcome to join us if you can find a secret portal through from planet Earth to Camelopardalis!

Our November Dream Digging is a very special time for us, Rosemary! It helps us to keep conneckted to our world and our dreams too.

Quite an adventure…and love the song.

The leaves are all down along the riverbank. Quiet time is settling in. Today it's cloudy but not cool—at least not for the end of November. Maybe it's time for an adventure of our own.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Ooh yes, Grizz - that 'moment of adventure' you talk about in your Milkweed Philosophy post. If there's an intergalactic portal between our worlds near you, Captain Gurgle and I can sail Necktune's Chariot up the River to collect you!

Linda Sue said...

Indeed This post shivered me timbers - gurgled too much, I did!

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Time to have a good strong mug of tea, then, Linda Sue! :)

Lyn said...

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Hi Lyn - you'd be so welcome to join us in our dream digging if you can find a portal to Camelopardalis!

Madame DeFarge said...

What a marvellous view from under the sea! You are the Jacques Cousteau of Camelopardalis.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Ooh, thank you Madame DeFarge! You've made my day!

Elisabeth said...

Inspirational work, Ralph. Who'd have thought a giraffe could swim underwater and offer such uplifting lyrics and music. I'm new here through the Weaver. Pleased to meet you.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Thank you Elisabeth, and pleased to meet you too - you're very welcome to visit us here in our world!

The Solitary Walker said...

The phrase 'sprout-harvesting season' jumped out at me. Yummy!

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Ah, you're a fan of sprouts too, SW! Maybe I'll post some of our delicious winter sprout recipes soon!
