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: 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.

I do not have a large office, and only have a queen size bed.  
This is who I share my every moments with when I am home.  
I was gone yesterday for a Vendor show.
We had a storm last night.
Another storm is due shortly. 
If I shift into the bedroom they will both follow.

Daily Prompt: Citizen of Today


Daily Prompt: 21st Century Citizen

Do you belong in this day and age?
Do you feel comfortable being a citizen of the 21st-century?
If you do, explain why —
and if you don’t,
when in human history would you rather be?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MODERN.

Let’s get real here for a second… there is not an era that has gone by that has not had it’s trials and tribulations.
With that being said, living for today and making a difference in todays society might just have an impact on tomorrow.

  • Being kind to a stranger (even a smile or kind word)
  • Being a foster parent to stray animals
  • Being a helping hand in your community
  • Teaching a class for just the cost of supplies in your community
  • Having a get to know you party in your neighborhood

Our neighbors got to know us when we went around with cameras and video equiptment and loved the video we made…

It did not cost us anything and did not hurt the environment at all…gave a smile to 28,135 people so far…

It was a way for me to get to know my neighbors and they got to know me as the lady from NY with the camera lol…

What have you done in this century to make an impact?

Would love to hear…

Daily Prompt: An Act Of Kindness


Daily Prompt: Moment of Kindness

Describe a moment of kindness, between you and someone else — loved one or complete stranger.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us KINDNESS.

Thanks for the great idea, Archita!

It was a rainy Spring night.  It seemed that it had rained for days on end.  I was recouperating from a gall bladder surgery and from an infection in my teeth due to the gall bladder.  I was due to have all of my teeth extracted.  No matter what I tried to eat, it did not agree with me.  The headaches from the vomiting were overpowering.  To lift my head from the pillow was an effort.  My hubby was sick on the couch with the flu, hoping I would not catch it.  

The dogs did not realize this however and still needed to go out.  On one of our trips during the late night, my left leg (with the sciatic nerve damage) decided not to work as I went to come back up two small stairs to enter the house.  My left rib cage became one with the brick exterior of the house.  Dropping to my knees, unable to breathe let alone shout out, I crawled to the bedroom.  Gasping for air and a comfortable place to lay, I fell back to sleep eventually.

The next morning, as if an angel had sent her, a friend called to see how I was feeling.  It was as if she could sense it in my voice.  Not only did she come over and checked my ribs (she is a registered nurse), she helped wrap my ribs to help me breathe easier.  She took a list and money and went to the store for me.  She bought groceries and pet food to help us get through.  She not only went to the store, she stopped at two different stores to help me save money.

She has a very busy life.  Her hubby is away in Kuwait, and they have six children.   The children are busy with out of school activities as well as school functions.  In her spare time, she still finds time for the gym and for her friends.  

This was not a random act of kindness, this is how she is every day.  For this I say thank you so much.  I can never repay your kindess.  The deep love that I feel is always there and the appreciation will always stand higher than any mountain top. Can we ever tell anyone how we feel enough…

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.
