Writing 101, Day Eight: Cash and Carry Barn is a great find


writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

Go to a local café, park, or public place and report on what you see. Get detailed: leave no nuance behind.

To drive past The Cash and Carry Barn which is located at 951 Lafayette Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042 it looks like a monument store.  If you have kept driving you have missed out on a huge treat.  They are so much more. (931) 503-9921 is their number to call.

Rather than skip the adverbs I had a better idea.  Show you.  Since they are open year round they have lots of pictures on their Facebook page.

Saturday Mornings there means fresh baked goods:

Then there is the homemade salsa, pickles, relishes, various apple butters, pie fillings and fresh baked pies.

Did I mention the fresh vegetables.  They are open year round.  They have a great green house.

Yes they work hard at the monuments.  Behind the scenes there is so much more… Go and see it for yourself when you are in the area.  Tell them that Tammye and Emmanuel sent you.

Daily Prompt: Food Good For The Soul


CIMG0114

Daily Prompt: Food for the Soul (and the Stomach)

by michelle w. on November 11, 2013

Tell us about your favorite meal, either to eat or to prepare.
Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FOOD.

In our home I cook from scratch for almost every meal that we have.
I use corn free products and shop at our local Korean Market to purchase items such as Rice Flour or Potato Starch, Rice Starch and Panko.

My Italian Bread Crumbs have to start with the Panko and then add my own Italian Spices.
Some we actually grow on our window sill in Winter months.

Our treat is when we can make a meal with guests visiting and then make a video while making the meal.

It not only creates a memory that will last, inspires our creative juices and makes the meal more interesting.

CIMG0001 CIMG0002 CIMG0003 CIMG0004 CIMG0005CIMG0014

To have fun, and enjoy a nutritious meal with friends…

Who could ask for anything more.

Special shout out to our Veterans today and their Spouses… Thank you for your service to our Country!

Daily Prompt: Bartering, Old Fashioned, Or New Age?


Daily Prompt: Barter System

If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare?
Would you have services to barter?
Would you be successful, or would you struggle?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SKILL.

The old saying is that you get farther with honey than vingegar.
If you have a bee hive then you have gold.

We have customers who trade us products for some pretty strange items and services.

I am currently in the market to barter for a dishwasher and a dryer…wish me luck.

Daily Prompt: A Life In Review


Daily Prompt: Four Stars

Write a review of your life — or the life of someone close to you — as if it were a movie or a book.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LIFE.

540309_394119673963962_1544795604_n

 

Our story opens in a small town outside of Buffalo NY.  It is hard times.  Life is not easy in the 50’s,  a couple with seven children.

Working in the Bethlehem Steel Mill is the job that is available.  It is a hard dirty job.  Luckily it is a job and puts food on the table.

292266_3027546051061_704291546_n

 

582668_3028146386069_1393269719_n

 

As the family grows so do the bonds between each of the family members.

134005_4229646492544_620923831_o

 

Being the baby of the family, at eighteen he goes off to war to do three tours.  He meets a gal from New York State and starts a family of his own.

326308_4105852397769_1829807860_o

 

They go through good times and bad times.  The children grow up and start families of their own.

He becomes divorced.

972338_10200504640111640_658701519_n

 

He is a unique person.  Some days in a world of his own.  He decides to become married again and start a different life.

Some of the old life still creeps in and haunts him.

251679_1882356171753_6214781_n

 

He tries hard to cope with it from day to day.

184427_10200501691397924_1103692988_n

 

Just like his gnome…he travels through life with each day being a new adventure.  Coping with the past, yet looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.




This is Eman, my hubby.  A life in review.  So many pages undisclosed.  A mystery to my readers.  A must see the movie or read the book to get the juicy details.

Enjoy.

Daily Prompt: Going List-Y


Daily Prompt: The Satisfaction of a List

Who doesn’t love a list? So write one! Top five slices of pizza in your town, ten reasons disco will never die, the three secrets to happiness — go silly or go deep, just go list-y.

lists

Why do we make lists?  What type of lists do we make?  Are they to keep us organized, help us to remember or just something to doodle when in a meeting?

I decided to explore the different types of lists that people make.  Here are my findings.

The Ever Famous Summer Bucket List…(Kids are out of school for break, have limited time to get it done in short time)

bucket list

 

Then I began to think about what do we use list for besides…

wine list on menu

 

Menus in Restaurants

top ten spices eating right listReading articles

schedule

Making Appointments

party guest list

Having a party or wedding

notebook lists

Taking notes or inventory

cleaning list

Cleaning Lists

wish

Hmmm

store joke

grocery

We make this so we do not impulse shop

do it

Ah the Honey Do List…

list

Now it is time for me to make my list like the prompt said…

I need to decide which list to start with first…
Perhaps I need a list for my lists
Should they all be neatly lined on the fridge?
Do I line them up by importance?
What deems the list more important?
My fridge has a Honey Do and Grocery…
Both are forgotten by hubby…
If I could eat in a corn free restaurant, I would love a menu
I don’t drink, so I do not need a wine list.
I am a little old to start a bucket list
Today is day off from A-Z Challenge
Tomorrow I do the Letter M
That really is a list of sorts, yet broken down by day
It does not feel like a list that is in a list.
I guess you could easily say that my lists have lists.

Daily Prompt: Organizations I Chose To Be Beneficiaries


Daily Prompt: Charitable

You’ve inherited $5 million, with instructions that you must give it all away — but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?

th

Wow with that amount of money it was a tough question.

1. Mike Fest 2013  (Would set it up so each year a recipient would receive a set amount).  This year is Wounded Warrior Sgt. Keith Hale.

https://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/daily-prompt-mikefest-history-and-today/

2. Paws with a Cause Local Chapter Max’s Hope

https://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/give-a-shout-out-to-our-local-organization/

The other charities I would have to think about for a bit and ponder.  My reason for this is that I have a problem with Administrative fees.  With these two that I have chosen, the money goes directly to the cause at hand for what is intended.  

Perhaps if I just split between the two that would be enough to keep MikeFest and Max’s Hope going for years to come.
