Top Ten Things Not to do During a Storm

  This post originally ran on October 26th, 2015. Since we all have been through some storms this year, I thought it would still provide a chuckle. * * * The inspiration for this list is a recent three-day storm here in Texas. Although I had enough sense not to do these things, they did […]

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt – Body Parts

    It was fortunate to find a nice quiet spot in the park where listening to the birds and enjoying the absence of human voices was possible.

This list was originally posted on October 18th, 2015. I think I might still be helpful. * * * This list is inspired by going through some boxes recently and coming across some unusual things. Of course, most of what follows is made up, so I didn’t have these experiences. I would ask the Wall […]

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “If”

  If I could find the time, I planned to go to the Home Depot and pick up some stain for the fence.  The sad thing was I became so involved in a story that the day got away from me. I was writing a story about a guy wanting to buy a new motorcycle. […]
