Just Jot it January & Stream of Consciousness Saturday. 13/1/2018

Today is day 13 of Just Jot it January. It is a joint post combining  Stream of Consciousness  Saturday.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is as follows: read closely. When you’re ready to sit down and write your post, look to the publication (book, newspaper, permission slip from your kid’s teacher, whatever you find) closest to you, and base your post on the sixth, seventh, and eighth word from the beginning of the page. Enjoy!

Prompts and Rules
Political landscape of.

Well that’s a heavy prompt isn’t  but l am game for a challenge, so let’s hope that I can do it justice. These three words come from the introduction of a great little book called  The Quotable Churchill by Running Press. 

Well let’s think world wars, Churchill was involved in both the first and the second world war.

        I have been far and wide but
        I am back now, and will endeavour
        to post each day, or at least every
        other day from now on. I don’t
        expect many visitors as I have not
        been posting regularly here in years
        but I welcome anyone that wishes
        to call by, just watch out for the Zombie’s
        Finger… lol
