The aim of the words is to encourage us to write, a story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.

This month the words were supplied by me right here on this blog.
Next month's words will be supplied by Lee from the Kitchen Connection.

This week's words are:

1. angry
2. tried
3. street
4. slashed
5. astounded
6. swore

and/or:

1. involved
2. solitary
3. longest
4. change
5. library
6. needling

This week I continue with Chapter Four of last week's story where we learned of Oliver Machenko.

Here is my story:

Jim Macleod placed Oliver's parole application on the pile to be read by the parole board. All applications and files were read early,  so any necessary investigations could be made well before the actual hearing. He gathered the files on each man a…

click on the link (and I hope it works)

Highlight the link and right click then select "open link"

I received the above link via email from no-one who likes to watch the Marvel comics TV series Supergirl, The Flash etc

 The video is a musical crossover segment with people from both shows and the lovely Jeremy Jordan on the piano.
I planned on using it as a Musical Monday post, but today is as good a day as any (and I might accidentally delete the email ) so sit back and enjoy a little love.

Musical Monday # 145

I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site.

I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time. 

I’ll be finding my clips on you tube, so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist.

Today’s clip is: Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers

Welcome back to Sunday Selections.

Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.

Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.

If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.

Today we will see more of the photos I took walking to and from the local shopping center last week.

this looks like a banana palm to me, but probably a sterile one,

the dried flower husks you see here would have developed into bananas, you can see the black stem at the top of one bunch, this would have supported the bunch of bananas and is where the bunch would have been cut from the palm.

Abelia Grandiflora, with some white flowers still intact; th…

Here is my story:  a new installment for Papa's Cookhouse.

Chapter Three.

 While work began with the emptying and cleaning of the old woodshed, Papa worked out the next part of is plan. First, a to-do list of people that must be contacted, followed by a second list of things to be done. 

Number one, of course, was a long chat with his old friend Philip Pfeiffer. Of similar age to Papa, Philip was a master craftsman, a carpenter with the envi…

Today (yesterday) we're taking a walk from my home to the local shopping centre, because I'm out of ice cream and that just won't do. Also to buy the newspaper to read the Real Estate section, something I do every Saturday.

A new home foundation on the block down the street. Again, this will be two homes on one block, but instead of side by side, these will be one in front and one behind.

and protected by Termi Mesh, which is a great idea…

Today we'll continue walking through the grounds here, now that Angel is safe at home.

not the garden, obviously, these are my footprints in the dust on my scales, which shows just how little I bother to weigh myself. Usually these scales live under my bed, guess I should vacuum under there more often (*~*)
