add coffee

Windows through which to gaze

Light by which you can read

Know you are rich indeed

Simple pleasures

Tree House

Momma gathers twigs

Dreaming of an egg-filled nest

Needs the perfect spot

In a colorless world

Wherever you look, greys

Potential for dull days

I bring my own

Dominic to the Rescue

This week we were invited to write ab0ut someone being in the right place at the right time. As I have done many times in the past, I pulled from my personal experiences. Should you desire to join in the fun, hang out at the Carrot Ranch

Annette loved her job at the Ambassador Bridge, Hers was a glorified secretarial position processing Import and Export paperwork for U.S. Customs. And the friendships formed with people from all walks of life were the best part.

As she did several times a day, Annette walked along the bridge plaza to the Customs dock office. Suddenly, she felt the ground give way under her feet. She screamed for help, and a nearby truck driver grabbed her and pulled her to safety.

It seems she had stepped on a loose manhole cover and that quick-thinking driver actually saved her life!

LOOSE & TIGHT (synonyms only)

an Abhanga

The shoes are just too big

The dress much too clingy

Her hair straight and stringy

Sucks to be her
