Photographers, artists, poets: show us CONNECTIONS.

Since my hand is in the “new” soft cast it is impossible to get it near the keyboard.
I am behind in blogging and do apologize.
The throbbing is like a toothache combined with a migraine and earache but in the hand.
They are guessing three weeks of this till I have my hand back.

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?

Daily Prompt: No Rolling Stone Here


Daily Prompt: Rolling Stone

If you could live a nomadic life, would you?
Where would you go? How would you decide?
What would life be like without a “home base”?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVEL.

We happen to know several couples who own an RV (Recreational Vehicle) and travel back and forth from each of their childrens homes across the United States.
To constantly be in a trailer, mobile home or what ever you want to call it is not what lifestyle I would ever want.
Granted, they have no mortgage (unless they owe on the RV) and only have to pay for car gasoline.
They do not have to pay property taxes, just for the license of the RV.

I think that it takes a certain type of person, one who loves camping to live like this.
To always be on the road and traveling.  To stop at various cities and not know anyone.
It is a special type of person who really enjoys this lifestyle and would not buy a home again.
Sometimes it is all about the ability to keep up the home.  (Although, you have to maintain an RV also).

I prefer to be able to walk into my own back yard and take my doggies (and kitties) for a walk.
When I walk them it is all four of them.  The cats do their duty at the same times as the dogs.
The dogs love being able to play in the neighbors hayfield and the neighbor does not mind either.
He says it looks like our dogs are patrolling their property and they feel safer because of it.

IMG_0042 007 (2) 002 (3) ??????????????????????

 

I like having roots here and a place where my children could come to visit if they wanted to for a vacation.

I love the weather in Tennessee, especially in the Winter.
While locals think we are having terrible weather or temperatures,  I am enjoying not having snow to my waist.

Daily Prompt: Which Side Of The Camera?


Daily Prompt: Tables Turned

Are as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one?
Being written about, as well as writing?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us DISCOMFORT.

I am actually quite shy by nature till I get to know someone.  
I am always the one behind the camera.
Since I am married to a non shy hubby, he is always in the limelight.

Daily Prompt: Laughing So Hard


Daily Prompt: From the Gut

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

Photographers, artists, poets: show us JOYFUL.

The last time that I laughed really hard was when I had company and she showed me a video

I thought it was very sweet at the end with the message to their mother.

This tells me that I have not laughed hard since shortly after Mother’s Day.

Would love for you to take my poll.
I want to hear your comments on this.
I use Facebook for social as well as advertising and for reaching family.

oops
There are aspects that I am not happy with, that is true with any network.
There are simple changes that could be made to make life easier.
I got married, some of my friends do not recognize my new last name.
I am blocked from adding friends.
This does not stop me from using the network.
Life goes on.

Would love to hear what you think.
Headphones are not overkill, he needs all the help he can get

Daily Prompt: What Makes Me Like A Post?


Daily Prompt: Great or Greatest?

What makes a blog great?
What makes you follow a blog or “Like” a post?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us GREATNESS.

I have to admit, today I hit like on the Daily Prompt Post as this one really made me stop and think.

vector-of-a-confused-cartoon-man-scratching-his-head-with-a-question-mark-thought-cloud-by-gnurf-71

The article or series of pictures really has to touch me. I
If I am in a hurry, sadly sometimes I want to leave a comment but don’t.
Sometimes it is late at night and so dark in my office that I can barely see my keyboard.
The best I can do at the time is hit like and have the best intentions to go back later and comment.
Sadly, old age or other obsticles get in the way like 4 hours of sleep and the thought pattern is not the same in the morning.

If the article holds my attention and leaves me wanting it to never end…it is an awesome one.
It does not necessarily have to be eye catching to do this.
When I feel like I can smell the surroundings, hear the sounds and reach out and touch the items of the story…you have me.

Would love to hear what my readers have to say about what grabs them.
