Musical Monday #14

Musical Monday  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: Bette Midler Wind Beneath My Wings from the movie Beaches and the lyrics so you can sing along.

Sunday Selections # 178

The rules are very simple:- 1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title 2. link back to me, River , somewhere in your post 3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted. 4. hop on over to The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

On Wednesdays , Delores, from Under The Porch Light, has a meme which she calls “Words for Wednesday”. She puts up a selection of six words which we then use in a short story, or a poem. I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story. It’s a fun challenge…why not join in? This week we don't have any words, instead Delores has given us these three phrases: 1. giggles and fairy wings 2. menacing monosyllables 3. fringe on the edge Quite a challenge, wouldn't you agree? Why not visit Delores's site and see what others have done with these in her comments section. There are some mighty talented people there! Without further ado, here is my rather long contribution. Perhaps you should get a cuppa before you start. And a couple of fairy cakes. (How many of you remember Runaway Kim? Working in the diner?)  I need a little help deciding where chapter two should finish and chapter three begin, please. I've made a break li
