The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 19, 2021

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

LindaGHill our host said. : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hat/het/hit/hot/hut.” Choose one, choose ’em all, put ’em in your post. Enjoy!”

As there were five words I have chosen to write an off the cuff Tanka with one of the words in each of the five lines.

Black cat in swish hat
Het up for lack of his mat
He’d taken a hit
Hot to trot he thought to split
From the hut roof he jumped splat.

Just over a year ago we had had tickets to a Dinosaur show in London we took Max and our son to see it…Max loved it and does some very convincing Dinosaur roars.

So imagine his delight when meeting a not so wooly mammoth in the woods.

“Good afternoon little boy how are you?” boomed the mammoth.

“Oh! Hello” replied Max, “I am very well thank you, how are you” He’s a very polite and caring young man, our grandson.

“Well” said the mammoth in a very loud whisper “I am actually very hungry” Max smiled happily and said “I have cheese sandwiches and a flask of hot chocolate. In my backpack. We could share if you like?”. The mammoth grinned widely and said ” Those are my favourite things, I would loved to share, climb up on my back and we can ride and eat”

Max climbed up the mammoth’s trunk and sat behind his head. They polished off the sandwiches and the hot chocolate as they trundled through the wood. After a while and a long and interesting conversation Max fell asleep. As he did the woods melted into the walls of Max’s bedroom and the mammoth in all its bright colours morphed into Max’s bed.

Max opened his eyes and saw his books, shelves and his reading wigwam and cosyed in feeling happy, the sun was peeping through the curtains.

Sounds came from downstairs Daddy and Ben were in the kitchen, Daddy was making pancakes. Oh! thought Max it must of been a dream.

Later that day Mum and Dad took Max and Ben to a new park where they found a brightly coloured wooly mammoth…. Max told them all about meeting the mammoth and riding on his back and sharing a picnic. When he finished they all said what a brilliant imagination he had!

As they all left to go home Max hugged the dinosaur mammoth and to his supprise it’s trunk hugged him back and it said “Thank you Max, come and see me again soon.” Max whispered, “I will, I promise”

Just then Daddy called out “come on Max we need to be making tracks” and so they did. “Bye bye” Max shouted as he ran to join the others. “Who are you talking to” asked Mummy. “No one” replied Max with a smile.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 344 BITE and Teeth.

Ronovanwrite’s

Jo had awful teeth
The overbite was a fright
Just to talk caused grief
One look, the dentist took flight
X-rays caused such disbelief.

Three things Challenge #356

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, every day Di at pensitivity101 lists three things that may, or may not, be related.
The challenge is to simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you, using one, two or all three words in your post. There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the logo if you wish

Your three things today are:

HOST
FUN
TIME

“Tonight your host is Ca Rona, she is delighted you could all come. She hopes you will have fun. Laughing, dancing, singing, smooching and kissing are the order of the night.
Ca has prepared all the food and drink for you to enjoy , every morsel touched by her personally.
So what’s the saying? Oh! Yes, ‘eat drink and be merry for tomorrow you die’ maybe not tomorrow but soon. Time is running out for you all.
Yes of course you can leave any time , go home to your families, go to work, go shopping, give everyone Ca Rona’s greetings. Tomorrow there’s a beach party your all welcome. Times a ticking …so is CA Rona.

sadly we can only blame ourselves.

Two sides to every story your actions have consequences.

The Escapist Coloring Club – February 2020 mid-month reminder

Well here we are and it is the last day of February. Time to show and tell our efforts for February 2020.

Here is the blank page ( so to speak).


Here we are halfway through the month.

Above is my finished effort and I am rather proud of it. Leaves, curls and squiggles. I used less colours than usual, my thinking is that less is more.

Come and Join us it’s so much fun 💜

Three Things Challenge #149

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Di at pensitivity101 gives us three words or things that will hopefully trigger our creativity. Today’s words are MASK
SCOUT Pen.

The masked ranger was a real pre-madonna. Not many people knew that, it was a well kept secret. Luckily his Indian scout Tonto had broad shoulders and tight lips! Most evenings the Masked Ranger liked nothing better than to sit pen in hand and write love poems! Hi ho Silver and away 😜
