The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 16/19 Yawn

Well ten minutes ago I had a brilliant idea for #SoCs. Then I got distracted by some some beautiful posts in my reader and here I am clueless as to what this world changing post was about!pro

Well it most definitely was something to do with a yawn. How do I remember that. Easy because this week Linda G.Hill said : ” Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!”

Now our Ruby yawns a lot, she yawns if she feels someone or something is invading her space, or if she is confused or bored and of course she yawns if she is tired.

Us humans yawn when tired, stressed or lacking oxygen. have you ever yawned and felt your jaw lock… oh my that can be so painful! Also if one person in a room yawns it is very  catching and everyone in  the room yawns. Now as you can see I am rambling on here and it is no doubt very boring. Very much unlike the wonderful post I was going to write had it escaped my brain and vanished into the either never to be seen again.

To save further embarrassment I have  added s to Yawn and  written an Acrostic Tanka.

Yes we have to yawn

All of us as soon as born

Will know how to yawn

No one is exempt no one

So cover your mouth and yawn.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 9/19

Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ends with -ly.” Start your post with any adv\nerb that ends in “-ly.” Bonus points if you end with an adverb too. Have fun!

Part of LindaGHill’s #SoCs

Quietly, Softly

Quietly, softly they reached out to eachother. No one seemed to give them a second thought.

Huddled in the corner of a doorway trying to avoid the bitter wind and lashing rain.

People unwittingly passed by not giving the wet box in the corner of the doorway a second glance.

Finally a young man heard they soft plaintiff sound coming from the box and stopped.

Quietly he reached over and looked into the box. What he saw shocked him deeply. There were two of them, struggling to hold on to life. Two tiny little souls clinging on to life, clinging on to eachother.

Two tiny boys only a few hours old, covered in their mothers blood. The young man picked the two lost souls out of the box and wrapped them in his coat. He tapped 999 into his mobile.

The paramedics asked the young man if he wanted to go with them to A & E, he did willingly.

The tiny boys died an hour after they arrived still holding hands. They breathed their last together.

The young man cried softly, he didn’t know these tiny twins but he had wanted to save them.

On the other side of town she wept bitterly, scared and alone she prayed someone would find them. The pain had stopped now but she was still bleeding. So cold and alone, she died crying softly.

Three young lives gone in one night, twin babes and barely teenager gone harshly,sadly painfully.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 2/19

Today’s prompt for SoCs is a bit different, as it doesn’t come from LindaGHill. Instead it was a suggestion by M. Oniker during Just Jot it January. She actually has a blog dedicated to SoCS posts! You can find her last post here. Drop by and say hi!

Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “Affirm.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

An Acrostic poem .

Rules and Pingback here

To affirm, to assert, attest to . Proclaim, swear to be honest it all smacks of going to court. To avow to the truth, testify, bear witness.

Affirmation to

Fill your lungs with truth, avow

Fedelity speaks

In voices that proclaim the

Righteous testimonials,

Men bear witness to.

The Friday Reminder for SoCS & JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 19th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “television.” Talk about your favourite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself. Enjoy!

I have written an Acrostic poem about Television

Tele vision

To see afar

Everything from sea to star

Logie Baird had a dream

Everyone would watch a screen

Voyeurisum gone mad

Is that really so bad

So we graduated from Radio

Into dreams of vision flow

Only to drown in information

No limits, seeing all destination.

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 12th

Our prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “art.” Talk about something that’s hanging on your wall. Add a picture, if you’d like. If you have no art on your walls, talk about something in a museum. Have fun!

Art for Art’s sake.

Many years ago, I really do not remember how long ago it was, I went on a trip to Henley with my sister Frankie.

We had a lovely day and after we had walked along the river we visited some of the shops.

As the afternoon wore on we found an art gallery, we popped inside and I spotted the most beautiful painting of a Dalmatian. I fell in love with him immediately.

The painting is by Mackenzie Thorpe . As I said I fell in love with the painting immediately and even though it was really out of my price range I wanted it. My sister convinced me I should by it as, as she put it ” you work, you earn why not have something you love occasionally.”

So I bought Herbert and his beautiful frame and Frankie and I walked through Henley with my massive and heavy expensive package.

So what did he cost….£99. This may not sound a lot of money for a piece of art but over twenty years ago, when I bought it, that was a princely sum.

My husband was shocked at the price thinking it was very extravagant. Mind you now we both love my piece of art. Herbert has been in the kitchen, the hallway, upstairs and downstairs. He is now in his permanent spot in the living room where we can see him everyday.

We both are glad I invested in this work of art.

The Friday Reminder for SoCS & JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 5th

Our prompt from LindaGHill for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sap/sep/sip/sop/sup.” Use one or all of these words or find a word that contains them, but most of all, have fun! Wondering what to do with “sep”? This is interesting: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=SEP Enjoy!


Sap rising means many things like goodness coming to the for, new beginnings but the literal meaning of the word refers to the life fluid of a tree,plant or animal (including humans). It can refer to strong feelings of love,lust, anger eg: he/she could feel the sap rising or he/she felt the sap draining out.

Looking at sip,sup and sop I am struck by the fact that they too refer to liquid or liquor. To sip a drink, to sup a drink ( old English version of sip) come to mind. Also and old English term is sop which refers to a drunkard,or alcoholic. As in, drunken old sop he had supped enough ale to sink a battleship. Or again in he could of sipped too much ale🤔.

That leaves us with sep now Linda found us an interesting meaning for that, to choose not to see a problem. Well people who sip and sup too much alcohol become a sop, they loose all their sap and the problem they have with drink to them is a sep.

Sep is also short for my special month September .

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 29/18

This is my entry for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Hosted by LindaGHill.

This week, the last #SoCs of this year Linda has said we should : Either ask someone in the room with you to give you a word prompt or turn on the TV or the Radio and pick a word from the first sentence you hear.

Well I was sitting in the living room with two friends and hubby. I asked my friend Anne for a prompt word. Her immediate reply was Productive.

Productive, yes that is how you could describe today so far. So far I have cleaned most of the house, washed floors, hoovered and dusted, put the washing on and had a shower.

That is quite productive in its own right was but it is so pointless really. What with Ruby in and out of the kitchen, hubby attacking the back gate with a plane and the damp dull weather the house will be dusty, and dirty in no time …

Hubby has been productive too he has walked Ruby, been to the bottle bank, and as I have already said he is fixing the back garden gate.

Well although this post is entitled Productive I am not feeling it at all. So there you go this piece of dribble is brought to you care of #SoCs. Happy weekend everyone.💜💜💜💜💜

Now look hubby and Ruby sweeping up now I do call that productive. 😁

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 15/18

This week LindaGHill’s #SoCs prompt is the word HAIRY. We have been told to use it anyway we like earnings extra points for using more than one meaning of the word, above all to have fun.

Well I have not gone for bonus points this week because a little Christmas story popped in to my head. As it’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday I just wrote the Yule Poem. Mind you I did start and finish with the prompt word …. So maybe I might earn an extra point.😉

Hairy Mary was so scary

Not a good look for a fairy

No one wanted her atop their tree

Not a pretty sight for children to see.

Cold and lonely, thrown in the alley

Mary sat making, of her misfortunes, a tally .

Ruby dog homeward trots

A delapitated form she spots.

‘Hello” says Ruby to the fairy

“What’s your” name, reply came, “Mary.”

“No one loves me” wailed Mary

“I am so ugly and so hairy!”

“Well” said Ruby, “you look fine to me.”

So Ruby picked Mary up

Took her home, kind hearted pup.

Curled up warm in Ruby’s bed

Happy, both after being fed.

Scary Mary not so scary

Snoozed in Ruby’s coat so hairy.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 24/18

LindaGHill said: ” your prompt for this week’s #SoCs is ‘Digest‘ use it anyway you like. Have fun.

Digest the facts

Salivation of words help

Taste the truth
