Writing 101 Day 7 Give and Take or The Revolving Door


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

Write a post based on the contrast between two things 

Our cat T. C. is an old “Garfield” in his color and attitude.  He has managed to lose some weight since moving to the South from the North since he can go out during the Winter months and get some exercise as well.  His food sits on top of the washing machine so that our dog Peachy will not eat every last morsel in existence.  He is more than capable of jumping from the floor to the window to the dryer and then walking to the washer.
However, upon arriving into the house, his presence is announced loudly and constantly until he is picked up and placed on the washer next to his dish.  He will sit there and stare at the dish until I have taken my hand and have stirred the dish of dry food several times.  I must then open the sealed container of food and grab a slight hand full and add to the batch and stir again.
He will then nibble for a few minutes.  Just as I am back in my office he will make his presence known again and will either want to be petted or will want to go out.  Once in a great while if it happens to be a stormy day I will hear the childrens piano in the spare bedroom playing and I know that he has decided to take a nap.
When the dogs are fed, he is the first at their dishes to help himself to the bits in the “Kibbles and Bits”.  Then the dogs are allowed to eat.  The dogs will look at us as if to say help!…

Cats rule and dogs drool….

He has a pattern of going in and out all day.  He knows that if he sets off the front door alarm it triggers in my office and I come to the front door.  As I approach the front door I find him sitting there as if asking what took me so long.  He nibbles on some food and is right out the back door to lounge in the sun for a nap in nice weather.  Unless that was just a potty break.

You might be wondering why we tolerate this annoying daily routine.  The reason is because he is somewhere between 15 and 16 years old.  We know that we do not have that much longer to enjoy his company.  His snuggling into bed with me on my right side while the dog Trina is tucked tight against my back on my left side.

About twice a day he insists that Trina groom him so he will walk under her and continuously butt her head until she begins to groom her.  It always happens so fast that I am never near a camera to record.  One of these days I will get it on record though.

That is the contrast in our lives that has blended well.  Perhaps someday he will decide whether he wants to be out or in lol.

Daily Prompt: Trick or Treat…Is Your Light On?


Daily Prompt: Trick or Treat

by michelle w. on October 31, 2013

If bloggers had their own Halloween and could go from blog to blog collecting “treats,” what would your blog hand out?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TREAT.  

2011-scary-halloween-pumpkin-ipad-3-wallpaper,2560x1920,ipad-3-wallpaper,522

 

Will your light be on for the trick or treater’s who pass by your house this year?

Will you be like a few of my friends who turn all of their lights off and pretend like they are not home so that they do not have to open their door?

I have often asked those friends why they hide in their homes and do this, as they give to a lot of various charities so I know it is not about the money.

Their answers are all about the same… “I just do not like this season”.

It seems that there must be an easier way to handle the situation than become a prisioner in your home and reading by a flashlight so that no one will know if you are home or not.

I also have several friends who are on the other end of the spectrum and plan for an entire year for this day.  They have an elaborate yard with special effects that are not too spooky for the little ones.  They are also the friends who decorate for Thanksgiving and Christmas, as well as several other Holidays…

Since we live way out in the country, we have only had one year where we had two children who stopped and visited our home.  They were really happy that they did too…

We took all kinds of pictures, gave them a ton of candy and really made a big deal about their costumes and how great they looked.  Sadly they moved.

If you are visiting my blog then I will give you a treat…

1452017_453543581433143_120735369_n

Stay safe this Halloween and please keep your animals inside where they will be safe…

Check the childrens candy as there are some sick people out there or just go where you know the people…

Check to see what is going on in your area that is inside and safe… a lot of malls are putting on functions as well as fire stations and Churches.

If using candles in your pumpkins please watch where you place them and be sure that if they get knocked over that a huge fire will not be started.

Tell us about the last time you had a real, deep, crying-from-laughing belly laugh.

Daily Prompt: A Laugh A Minute


Daily Prompt: Ha Ha Ha

Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FUNNY.

Every morning my hubby peeks his head into my office to say good morning and that he loves me and his question is always “So what are you doing? Blogging?”  So this morning I turned to him and said I need a joke for my blog.  After getting through the deer in headlights look, he realized I was serious.  Obviously neither of us have had coffee yet as his response was:  “A sandwich walks into a bar and orders a drink…the bartender responds sorry we do not serve food here.”

Then, since I did not want to disappoint readers while my coffee is brewing I went to Facebook to see what they had for me:

My hubby’s latest contribution to Facebook is his motto for our grandchildren…

Going Back In Time


Where shall I start?  Perhaps the first photo that hubby’s children saw of me announcing our recent marriage would be a great place.

Tammye's Expecting Due in July...

 

Imagine their surprise when they actually met me…

Let’s add our imaginary dog Pooky:

Add a pinch of honeymoon in Afghanistan to the point where you have to take friends there to show them you really did not go…

Stir in Magazine Covers that you were never really on:

Multiply by a ton of videos that made no sense:








So that is married life…

Is it funny?
That is for my readers to decide.

Daily Prompt: Clouds Have A Silver Lining


Daily Prompt: Silver Linings

Write about something you consider “ugly” — war, violence, failure, hatred — but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.

A Benefit Concert is normally to raise money for a great cause.
The big celebrity shindigs normally have a huge turn out of celebrities who convince people to donate.

The latest Benefit in Boston is still all the rage in Twitter and various social media.

The hype?

Benefit Concert Unites Americans in Love of Boston, Hatred of Dane Cook

http://music.yahoo.com/blogs/stop-the-presses/benefit-concert-unites-americans-love-boston-hatred-dane-061745789.html

The Boston Strong benefit concert that streamed over the web Thursday night was notable for appearances by homegrown artists ranging from Aerosmith to the reunited New Kids on the Block. But the most talked about act of the night was Dane Cook… and not because America suddenly fell in love with him all over again.

The hostility toward Cook toward the end of the show became rampant enough that the comedian became a trending topic on Twitter — out of sheer contempt. He’s always been a polarizing comic, but what caused him to become a social media supervillain on a night devoted to charity and good vibes? Just this: The web feed being viewed by millions went dead as soon as he took the stage and came back on as soon as he left, leading to rampant speculation that he had disallowed organizers from sending his set over the web like everyone else’s.

Eventually Cook confirmed it himself, sounding blithe about the rampant contempt directed his way: “Hey everyone sorry my set was not a part of the live stream or televised! I didn’t want any of the new material to hit the airwaves yet! I can’t wait to share it soon!”

If the marathon bombings made Bostonians mad, Cook’s “Dane Cook move” (as one angry tweeter put it) might have been the one thing that could have enraged locals even more. Jeff Howe, a sports writer for the Boston Herald, unleashed a series of tweets bashing the comic. “Couldn’t imagine turning on a city the way @DaneCook did tonight. I know that’s not how it goes here in Massachusetts… I’ll admit, I used to think he was hilarious, but turning your back on your state makes you look like a squirrel… Why use a tragedy to tease your career?”

Other Boston residents or sympathizers joined in on Twitter: “I have loved Dane Cook since day 1, but I am just speechless on what he did tonight. Feel betrayed”… “If this rumor is true about Dane Cook blocking the stream of his performance for a charity show, he should rot in hell asap”… “Dane Cook right up the with Onizneb as the shame of Massachusetts”… “We will always forgive Doug Flutie for the gym shorts, but we will never forgive Dane Cook for being Dane Cook”… “If Dane Cook wasn’t just censored and he blocked it himself, he has become public enemy number 1″… “I hear Dane Cook earned $100,000 for Boston charities by auctioning off his exit from the stage”… And so on.

Cook did allow himself to appear on camera for the all-star finale, joining Aerosmith for the the classic rock song “Dirty Water” and wielding Steven Tyler’s mic stand, apparently unaware of the fact that he’d just become the most discussed alleged evildoer in America. As one tweeter wrote, “Watching Dane Cook sing and dance oblivious to the fact Boston hates him is the funniest thing he has done in years!”

At first, viewers figured there might be technical difficulties when the feed dropped out moments after Cook came on stage, since the first third of the five-hour-plus concert was plagued by streaming difficulties that rendered the show virtually unwatchable. That buffering disaster caused untold thousands to tune out of the broadcast and stirred up its own social-media firestorm, until the streaming finally smoothed out at about the time Jason Aldean took the stage two hours into the show.

Did someone lose sight about what a fund raiser is all about here?  Perhaps next time Mr. Cook should think twice before making an appearance till he is ready to publicise his material.

Giving the fundraiser a black eye was not his intent, or at least I hope not.  All in all Money was still raised and even he was still able to raise some money.

That is the silver lining to this cloudy day.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Lucky Day 13


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

I certainly hope that some of my readers are not superstitious as I would hate to lose you for a day just due to a number.

Let’s crank up the radio with an appropriate song and start our journey then:

Since our trip is based on comments and my feed back lately, let me check to see where we are going to be starting our trip.

http://hannahsterry.com/ What an appropriate stop indeed.  Everything from music to cartoons here for our morning entertainment.

Our next stop is a bit of reading material for the passengers since the driver should only do that …

http://maggiestoriesawb.wordpress.com/ lots of great reading material here.

Now that you are content with reading material we are off to a new destination:

http://kloipy.wordpress.com/  This one is such a hot site we may have to stop for refreshments while reading since this one has been featured on Freshly Pressed. You will have to see for yourself why as it is so hot…it will make my pages sizzle if I let out the secret.

One of the fun things to do is meet travelers while you are traveling.  With that said lets meet:

http://patriciaddrury.com/ She seems to do a daily travel through life.  Not giving it away…go see…

Since 13 is not supposed to be a lucky number I am going to make this a short day and stop with the next blogger who should keep you quite entertained for the rest of the day with everything that he does…

http://pouringmyartout.wordpress.com/ You really never know what you are going to find when you go into the reader in the morning and see his posts.  I will say he is versatile in his style and bold and daring.  the rest you can see for yourself.

Until tomorrow I leave you with a song, Please pardon the language as I did not say it.  I thought I would go with a younger version

For you younger readers I will give you the original song also that proves my children are right (even though this is before my time) I am older than dirt.
