The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 30/19 .

Doh! Dough.

SoCS badge by Pamela,

Doh! I was so busy yesterday I missed my personal deadline for Stream of Consciousness Saturday . Yes LindaGHill said : “Your challenge for this week’s #SoCs is Doh! / Dough. Use one use both but make sure you have fun”

Well what can I say Doh! accompanied by either hitting yourself on the head, embarrassment or annoyance is a perfect exspleitif first coined by Homer Simpson.

Dough on the other hand can be two different things. The original meaning of the word is what you make when making bread , you need to knead dough when making bread or doughnuts. Which reminds me doughnuts are Homer Simpson’s favourite food intact I think they are part of his staple diet, if not his staple diet!

The other is a more modern use for the word dough and it refers to money. As in “You need to work to earn the dough” or “that costs a lot of dough!”

Just a thought do you remember the Pillsbury Doughboy. The Pillsbury flour company made numerous adverts staring the cute dough boy who was always being poked and prodded by a human finger. The adverts spanned 1965 to 2017.

And now an Acrostic poem about and spelling Dough.

Don’t forget to knead the dough

Or your loaves will not grow

Unless you put the work in

Get it right or your bread will be thin

Happy bread will sell and dough you’ll win.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 22/18

This week’s #SoCs prompt from LindaGHill is: Tin use it as you will, a word or part of but have fun.

TINTIN was a childhood favourite of mine. I used to love listening to his adventures on the wireless, better known these days as the radio.

Hergé’s adventures of TinTin was so exciting to me as a child and I loved to imagine all the characters! I also loved the books and finally the TV series.

The main characters from TinTin from Wikipedia

The main Characters (the good guys ) are

Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, Thomson and Thompson, AKA The Thomson Twins.

So there you have it my childhood Hero TinTin.

#SoCS March 30/18 Bun.

Today Linda of A Life in Progress has given us the Bun to use for our #SoCs. We can use it in a word or as a word in its own right.

Rules and Pingback Here.

We always had hot cross buns on Good Friday for breakfast. They were always fresh from the oven. I loved them somthered with butter and jam. It was a delicious way to start the day and end our Lenten fast.

We would not have had anything so tasty since our lemon and sugar pancakes 40 days previous on Shrove Tuesday.

Then we went to mass followed by the Stations of the Cross. I am sure we were all there for over three hours! That’s a long time when you are a baby, a toddler, young girl and even teenager.

I do remember it always seemed to go dark around 3pm. That’s the time the Crusifixion was said to have taken place. Whether that was autosuggestion or not I always expect it.

Sunday was mass again and then 🐥🐤🐣 Easter eggs.💜🐰🐇

Well that’s my ramblings I decided to do a Acrostic Nonet about Easter and Hot Cross Buns.

Using the nine lettered word Abundance, well nowadays you can buy an abundance of them all year round.

Abundance.

Always at Easter after Lents done

Bakers prepare the hot cross bun

Uncannily fruity fun

No one can resist them

Don’t fib you love them.

April or March

No matter

Come and

Eat.
