42, Day Twelve.

Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything.

So I heated the sulphuric gunk of his choice
With spices and honey; cursed under my voice
As the bright yellow powder went flying again

“I’ll just clean the windows, before it gets sunny.”
(It’s only a bungalow, saves him some money…)
I fell off the stepladder, risking my neck,

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. One the Farm.

This week’s #SoCs from Linda of Life in Progress is an extra difficult one with s difference.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “on the farm.” Find a word that has a farm animal sound in it, i.e. sMOOth, and use it in your post. Bonus points if you include three or more. Have extra fun!

A sheep walked into the barn. To find the cows moving bales of hay around. “What is going on” asked the sheep “your making so much noise.” “Stop bleating said the cows “your upsetting the chickens.” “There is no need to be moody you are driving me barmy! I am off to talk to the donkeys on the bray.” said the sheep. Just then a turkey rushed in and shouted ” I have just seen a goblin outside!”

As the sheep left the barn he met a horse who said ” Hello I am your new neighbour!”
