Reason To Smile




“Loosen rusty bolts, bake flaky pie crusts, make your hair shine.”

Before infomercials he hadn't sold a can a week. Now money rolled in.

Modern Conveniences




Thank goodness she lived in modern times. This sure beat cleaning clothes in the stream and hanging them on branches.

Double Duty

Don't remember what I was doing last week, but I missed the Three Word Wednesday challenge. I didn't discover this until I went to post today and realized that I had used last week's words. Hate to waste them, so here's two weeks worth.

A Different God

Who judges what’s right or wrong? Surely not the gracious deity, who had provided him with an early nightfall and escape from his pursuers. Relaxing in the safety of his hideout, the thief began to count the rewards of his exploit.

Slap
Right before my eyes,
it met an untimely demise.

No effort was made at revival.
Who cheers a mosquito's survival?

Grave Matters


Now do you believe me, Stan? We should have taken a cruise with that money you spent on perpetual care.

And The Winner Is . . .

Me!

And every other participant in the NaNoWriMo challenge.  It's a great experience and has value that goes far beyond meeting the marker.

That said, I'm proud of completing the 50,000 word challenge and prouder still to have finished my first draft of Essentials today, racing another 20,000  words past the finish line.

 Editing?  I'll be starting that tomorrow.  But tonight I'm savoring my success.

Chicken

They shuffled back and forth, neither advancing nor retreating. Don’t attract attention and the danger will pass. Tom did not pander to this foolishness and fled the scene. Better to be called a chicken then to be served for tomorrow’s dinner.
