Shining Example

Sweet, Merry Wipe-Day

Born to be at your service

Lives up to her name

Smiling, she cleans the castle

Even leaves the floors gleaming

Samaras dancing

Maple trees are generous

Asking for a Friend

Oh, wicked, wicked food

Why do you tempt me so

I’ve weight needing to go

You’re everywhere

I plan for healthy meals

Then a friend says let’s eat

Hey, I deserve a treat

And I cave in

I might as well be friends

With the choices I make

Just one more bite to take

And buy new clothes

Pups for People

This week, Charli Mills’s prompt was to write about a disabled Vet and a newly released prisoner who trained a dog named Buttercup to be of service to that Vet. Here is what I came up with. Make sure you connect with a terrific writing community on the ranch, the Carrot Ranch!

Gail leaned over in her wheelchair and smiled at the furry little family.

“Buttercup, you’re such a good mother! Your loving pups will one day mean as much to others as you mean to me!”

Gravel crunched under the weight of truck tires. Loretta was here. Gail couldn’t breathe. It was time to say goodbye.

“Well, here they are, Loretta. Five enthusiastic recruits for the program. I’m sure the ladies who will train them will do as wonderful a job as you did with Buttercup!”

“Thank you, Gail. I get more out of this program than words can say!”
