Thank you I Get It

I can hardly thank Charli Mills enough for this week’s flash fiction prompt. It allowed me to take stock of my of my life at a point when it was most necessary. Woo Hoo! Check out the  Carrot Ranch  

*************************************************************************

When I think of all I’ve been through in sixty-three years on this little blue planet, I am in awe. The sad experiences that seemed they would tear my heart out. The happy times I enjoyed so much, they drained me of my energy. But I am not about to complain!

It has all made me the person I am today. Even though when you take a look at me, I may appear to be a bit worse for the wear, I am still here. No worries. And though there’s so much more to learn, halleluiah, I got life!

My Name is Danny

Danny the Dog is a prolific writer. He’s written articles for bloggers around the world and has his own very popular blog where he dispenses his wisdom on a monthly basis. He’s humorous, clever, charming, delightful, and sometimes irascible. Or, as he would phrase it, “I’m a purveyor of wit, wisdom, and words.”

In My Name Is Danny, Danny writes about his real-life adventures living on a boat in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with his human, Andrew. He tells of their trials and tribulations … and the love they have for one another.

Sour Puss

This week’s Carrot Ranch 99-word Flash Fiction Challenge was to write about Key Limes. Personally, I love a good key lime pie. Now, I am in the mood to go bake one. If you are ever in the mood to participate in the weekly challenges of Charli Mills, FOLLOW her blog and have some fun!

“Key limes, schmee limes! I didn’t know there was a difference and now I have to go back to the store!”

Allison was not happy. Her mother asked for 30 key limes for the pie and she bought 30 limes, but they were not key limes. Now she had to not only go back to the store to buy MORE limes, but she also had to take back the ones she lugged home. Whatever!

Plopping the bag of limes into the basket on her bike, Allison grumbled, “Key limes, schmee limes! Why not just make Grandma a chocolate cake?”

Not Forgotten

Sue Vincent’s #writephoto prompt this week was the word SHIMMER! Here is my take on the word, not directly the photo. Join her and the other creative folk here: https://scvincent.com/2019/12/05/thursday-photo-prompt-shimmer-writephoto/

“Brush your hair now, Betty. You have a visitor.”

Betty had been placed in the nursing home only a few months ago. Macular degeneration was robbing her of her sight. She was deaf in one ear and could barely hear out of the other. Her doctor said it wasn’t safe for her to live alone.

A visitor! Who could it be? Betty had no family close by. A sister lived in a nursing home in Wisconsin, but she couldn’t travel.

“Merry Christmas from the Salvation Army, Betty!” She looked up from the gift bag, tears shimmering in her eyes.
