Quote of the day and my thoughts

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Never be silent. If something is important to you, speak about it. Use your voice. We were given a voice for a reason, never be scared to use it. Silence isnt golden! Its important to tell your story, whatever that story may be!

Quote of the day and my thoughts…

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
Alan Bennett

so true!

Sometimes I read and I go wow!I was thinking the same thing!

And I love when that happens!

Just knowing I am thinking along similar lines to someone else is really helpful at times!

3tc challenge PL156

todays prompts for 3tc are park, gallop and liqorice

He sat on a park bench, stuffing his face with liqorice. He loved the stuff. Especially the smell of it, the black ones were his favourites.
Suddenly his labrador galloped up to him. He licked his hand, what! You want liqorice too boy? Kevin said with a smile!
Come on he said, time to go for our walk. The dog wagged his tail and jumped around excitedly. Steady, boy, kevin chuckled. Whose walking who here!
They set off and did a couple laps of the park, being out in the fresh air felt so good. This is the life, thought kevin, his dog agreed, it certainly was a dogs life.

Who won the week?

Fandango has a new prompt, called, who won the week!
It is where you choose someone who you think won the week, who is either outstanding, did something good, it can be a celeb, blogger, politician, etc. Anyone you think who is worthy of the title!
For me, this first week goes to a local celeb, a restaurant here where I live, had a kitten on their roof. The kitten was stuck there for days. They tried everything to rescue it, but nothing was working, the fire department even came out, but they had no luck either, they didn’t rescue it. The local animal welfare people gave them traps to try to catch it, and still they couldnt rescue the kitten. It was very nervous, and every time anyone went near it it ran away.
Eventually, one of the restaurants employees, named lauren, and her brother, rescued the cat. The cat jumped from the roof, two floors up, and lauren and her brother heroically caught it.
What a stroke of luck!
I just heard Lauren being interviewed on the local radio. She said she’s going to name her new kitty roofus! 😀 what a cute name for the cat! I love it!
She definitely gets my vote for who won the week!

Who Won The Week?

Nova’s random word of the day, embargo

The towns people decided that they wanted an embargo on the word fuck! Frank thought this was outrageous!
Who does that! He exclaimed!
I love that word! I need to be able to use it!
Its part of my everyday vocab!
His wife just laughed at him, and playfully punched the air!
Find a new word, frank!
Its not as easy as that, he sighed.
That word has gotten me out of a lot of sticky situations!
When I tell people who I dont like, go fuck yourself, they know I mean business!
When I say, fuck you, they know I am serious!
Oh frank, his wife cried!
Why cant you just be a little nicer to people! It really takes more strength to be nice than to be mean!
Frank was having none of it! I’m not a pushover, he shouted!
His wife just said, whatever! I have things to do! If your going to be grumpy you can be grumpy on your own! Dont try to make me agree with you!
And with that, she stormed off, leaving frank to stew!

Novas random word of the day, sapient

Dawn looked at adam. Her blue eyes pierced right through him as she stared intently at him.
But adam, she said, with a huge sigh, you know I am right! I am far more sapient than you are!
Women are way more sapient!
Adam kept disagreeing with her! No! He shouted, It isn’t so!
Oh yeah? well then, give me 3 good reasons why it isn’t so!
Adam couldn’t give even one. So after much thinking, he gave in and walked off.
Dawn had won the argument, see?
She always knew women were more sapient than men.
They had all the answers to arguments about that too!
She decided to go see what all her friends were up to and to tell them I won an argument!
Meanwhile, Adam was busy trying to think of reasons for why men and women differed so much.
I suppose I’ll never really know, he said, as he stared glumly into his cup of tea.

Fowc with fandango


Welcome to June 23, 2019 and to Fandangos One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). Its designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each days word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Todays word is dearth.

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.


There is a dearth of evidence, the police officer said. Leila looked at him with surprise. Really? I didnt think that was true, she said.

Well I’ll see what i can do, but I am not promising anything.

Leila sat down heavily on the couch. She was still in complete shock. She couldnt believe she’d been burgled and all of her valuables taken, and there was no finger prints, no evidence that someone had been in her house.

Thanks for coming over so quickly, she said to the police officer, who by then was getting ready to leave.

He put his note book and pen in his briefcase, and shut it.

I think you should call someone, he said, is there a family member or friend you can call?

I’ll call my sister, Leila said, she’ll know what to do.
