The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 25, 2022

Hi its Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. She popped in yesterday to give us all her prompt, she said: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “product/produce.” Use one, use them both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!”. You can join in here.

Product and Produce

What is the product of twelve and four
Sixteen, no less no more.
Also the shops are full of products
Everything from factory made TVs to rubber ducks.
The farmer toils every day for his produce
Potatoes, greens, wheat and fruit juice.
The market stalls and high street shops
All full of produce and products.

When we are pregnant we produce a child
We love them and they drive us wild
We keep them safe and educate
The product of this is their living fate
The product of a happy life
Be you, husband, sister, brother wife.
Is to go and meet your market
Who’ll produce a list of your wins or losses be you Buddist or Quaker.

There are more meanings to these words
They can be used often and fly like birds.
But for me my time and rhyme is done.
I hope you’ve liked it and had some fun.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a picture from wherever.” When you sit down to write your post, find a picture, whether in a magazine, newspaper, or even product packaging. Write whatever thought or emotion the picture provokes. Enjoy!

Well there are no books or newspapers near me and I have spent time thinking where can I find one and in all truth that is not in the spirit of SoCs is it. So today for once I am not even going to attempt to comply with the rules! Yup shock horror! I just can’t be bothered. I wonder if it’s the Covid or just me but I don’t feet right and I feel depressed.. I can usually hide it but not today… No I feel blar blur and I going to drown in it! Let it wash over me and give up for today and just hope tomorrow will be a better day.

Lurking in shadows
Vicious snapping at my heels
Lethargy appears
Sucking me into the black
Too tired to put up a fight

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “iron(y).” Use “iron,” use “irony,” or use both. Use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

.

No doubt a few people will of picked this song today! I mean it’s part of the derivation, iron, ironic and irony.

Well I find it very ironic that a garden party was organised for our neighbors, well that’s not ironic in itself but the irony is that two days before the party hubby went down with Covid. We had managed to avoid catching it for over two years then the day before a once in a lifetime event not to be repeated we can’t go…… The party still went ahead in our front garden but without us because hubby was sick in bed, and because of my will of iron though still negative yesterday I stayed away ! The Queen determined as she is will not see another 70year anniversary but there is plenty to see on the TV.

Well I am glad I did not go because this morning I took my third daily test and bingo I now am positive too. I would of felt awful had I gone to join them all and some of them had caught the Covid. So that’s ironed out I did not put anyone at risk.

I looked into the ironing room this morning, the ironing board, iron and pile of ironing waved to me and gave me the day off, just as well because I am feeling a tad under par. So we are staying in until we are better 😷😷

Hi everyone it’s Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Linda has dropped everyone a Friday reminder, except John W. Howell at Fiction Favourites who gets so much more than he ever wanted in terms of strange cartoon characters, low flying planes and weird UPS deliveries…. Lucky for the rest of us we get an email and this week it said :

‘Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trail/trial.” Use one, use both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

The trail was narrow and shady
We walked in hope and the companionship
You running on, bouncing like crazy
If speparted we would double back quick.

You are always so good, never a trial
Your loving caring ways always brings a smile.
There to protect us while we’re out on the trail
I trust you so our bond will never fail.

Now your getting older the trail is way too hard.
Your old bones ache and your enjoyment marred.
A short walk now can be such a trial for you.
So we lift you gently into the car and take you somewhere new.

You have never been a trial
We’ve loved you all the while
So we keep you out of pain
So you can dream that we are out on the trail again.

Crystal clear water flows fast, reflecting gentle rainbow colours.
Foolishly we step in, suddenly feeling the strong undertow
Clear and present danger strikes fear in our hearts, clear waters deep.

Its Saturday again and time for us all to join in Linda’s SoCs. The prompt is week is :Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hat.” Use it literally or metaphorically. Have fun!

.

He entered the bar, his hat down over one eye. He looked the part and he new it. She was sitting at the bar red dress red shoes and hat.
Mentally he threw his hat into the ring as he approached her and asked if could buy her a drink.
She smiled and accpected, “keep this under your hat” she whispered “I am looking for adventure.” Her eyes twinkled as she cocked her head to one side the brim of her hat framing her small face and huge eyes.
“Well” he said looking into her eyes “it so happens I am too!”
He ordered two whiskey and dry and she suductively ate some olives.
Someone put some music on the jukebox it was Hats off to Larry, followed by Wherever I lay my hat.
After they had finished their drinks she whispered in his ear, “I know a place we can go.”
“Now” he asked, a gleam in his eye, “yes” she winked.
Tipping his hat to the barman he took her arm, she looked amazing from the toes of her red stilettos to the curve of her dress to the red feather on her hat.
As they stepped out onto the street they both smiled and said together, “You can keep your hat on.” Then as fast as they could Mr and Mrs Day walked home.

It’s Saturday again and it’s time for SoCs. Our prompt arrived yesterday and it’s a strange one. LindaGHill’s said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a phrase you grew up with.” Include in your post a phrase your mom/dad/grandparent/sibling used all the time when you were growing up, or just write whatever inspires you based on that phrase. Enjoy!

“It will be a pigs foot in the morning” or “I’ll give you a biff on the boko”

When I was growing up if ever someone in the family hurt themslves and Dad was around he would tend to our injuy and then tell us ” It will be a pigs foot in the morning” I have to admit for first few years of my life I was worried about pigs trotters growing all over my body! Of course it never happened!

Another of Dad’s favourite sayings was if we had any moans about people or ifwe had committed a minor misdemeanor he’d say ” I’ll give you/ them a Biff on the Boko” another nonsensical saying. I had no idea where it comes from. I looked Biff on the Boko up in Google and discovered Boko means nose.

If Mum was getting to the end of her tether she would say, “Jesus, Mary and Joseph” these words meant everyone back off and behave. Mum had lots of sayings I shall list a few here!

Never cast a clout till may is out!

Blue and green should never be seen unless there’s something inbetween.

The angles are playing skittles . When there was thunder.

There was so many I will not go on. But one saying they both had in common was ” We’ll see ” or “God willing” used went for one reason or another the requested was unlikely to come to fruition. Also “God bless your tummy” when we ate, too much too little or something unusual. Oh! of course the old favourites “your not having pudding until you finish your dinner ” “your not leaving the table until you clear your plate” ” There are millions starving in Africa ” …mind you neither Mum nor Dad could name any!

There are many more but I going to finish now because time and tide waits for no one!

Lets finish with a song about growing up from my favourite Immie.

To reach for the stars ✨ is what we all have in our hearts. Whether we admit it or not , we might tell ourselves we are reaching for success, fame, love but truly we are reaching for the stars. Why? Because we are made up of stardust and to the stars we must return.

Too many people spend their lives racing around in circles trying to beat others to their goal. Look at America and Russia, those two countries spent a lot of time and money trying to get into space or to the moon first. All this while too many problems on this planet have gone through the roof . War , Famine, Greed, Plagues and Destruction of our planet too . Okay I will change track before I get too preachy!

Two by two we pair off in life, it may not last but it might. Too many relationships fail, sometimes by too much effort on side and sometimes not enough but that is life. We all know that don’t we.

Well I think it’s time for me to wind this up before I get too deep and offend one or two of you.

Have a great Saturday, be kind to yourself and others too, try to do at least two kind things today.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 16, 2022

Yesterday Linda popped in to say Happy Easter and to give us our SoCs prompt for this week , here’s what she said.”Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nose/noes/knows.”Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you use all three. Have fun!

*******

Now when I was young so much younger than today-ay-ay…

Hang on that’s a song and has nothing to do with the title of this post…. Though I could do with some help!

Seriously what I was going to say before I digressed was when I was a child I used to get eyes/ayes and noes and nose confused. Especially if dad was listening to an important broadcast from the houses of Parliament. You see when they took ( and they still do exactly the same now) the votes Mr Speaker would say “The ayes to the right the noes to the left” then they would count the vote. Well my strange childhood mind could see a pile of eyes on the right of the floor and a pile of noses to the left. Oddly enough this did not worry me. Also there was a lot of “ear earing ” going on during speaches but we won’t get into that now!
Well I have grown up now, (honest I have) and I finally know the difference between eyes,ayes, know,nose and noes. ….Truly it’s not my fault that English has so many words that sound the same even though spelt quite differently and we are expected to just know the difference.
I know now that it’s aye captain and not eye captain…. Even if a pirate Captain might only have one eye… nower days most captains, airline, ships or army have two eyes and rightly so!

I could go on but I know that would just cause so much confusion so I shall say right here right now….

oops slipping into another song.
No more, noway ( two noes there)so I shall just follow my nose over to Linda’s.

Happy Easter everyone.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday:Tip.

Badge by Shelley Krupa..

Well here we are again it’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week Linda said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tip.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!”

Dancing on tip toes.

image from here.

Just like being stretched upon the rack

Bruised toes tip to to tip and aching back.

Practice practice every day

No time to sooth those pains away.

Willowy thin is hard to maintain

On your tip toes again and again.

If you grow too wide or too tall

Take my tip you will lose it all.

Shorty at the tip of glory portraying

Nutcracker or the  Swanlake story.

A few weeks of fame, reward for a

Lifetime of self denial and pain.

Tip toe back to the chorus again.

******

Can I give you a tip, if you can’t think how to write a post after two hours and umpteen attempts give up! Tip a wink, let’s someone know something of importance early. Tip of the iceberg, meaning a subject or a person is deeper than they appear at first glance.. To tip your hat , a greeting or a salute. A racing tip , someone in the know let’s you know which horse to back. Tip toe, to move very quietly , without making a sound. Dancing on tip toes.Tipping, giving a gratitude to any one who serves you in any way. To tip , to lean too far and fall ☺️ I am good at that so is Del boy.
