Funny Friday, August 2018

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday

submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.
Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up
with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

she shops her little heart out"

parking lot, advise?" Base "proceed with caution, the people of Wal-Mart are shady"

3. Stop the car, stop the car!!!! I HAVE to take a picture of this otherwise NO ONE will
believe me.

4. Well doesn't he look comfy, on his cot, feet up, hat over his face...he does realize this
is a parking lot. Right?

Puppies and Tornadoes

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

The weather is hot
the weather is dry
puppies do not care

The ground is parched
the ground is cracked
the tree cares

The park is full
the park is busy
everyone cares

A storm pops up
the wind is fierce
the wind is strong

It howls, blows and destroys
the tornado does not care
the trees are gone

The park is destroyed
the puppies home is gone
the tornado does not care

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.

A Balm To My Soul

Hi and welcome. Today's post is participation in a group post. Each month we pick a them and then each blogger/writer chooses how they will interrupt that theme. Poetry is fluid, pictures in word form, free verse, prose or haiku, whatever you choose. It is an expression from ones inner most soul and I hope you enjoy each one of the verses given from all who took time to write for today's post. Our theme...National Relaxation Day - August 2018 Poetry collaboration post.

Sitting by the water
breathing in salt air
warm breeze stirs my hair

Standing on the edge
of concern and
giving in to woe

breathing in salt air
it gives balm
to my weary soul

a gentle breeze
sun kissed cheeks
birds in the wind

waves on the ocean
a boat floating by
dolphins playing carefree
all this by the seaside

I sit and soak it in
breathing in the salt air
until my worries are carried away
then I rise to face yet another day

Driving home
refreshed and renewed
my spirit can handle
another week or two
I took this photo at Shell Point near Harkers Island NC on November 30, 2015

Hot Butter Baby

he walked into the room
looking like sliced butter on a hot knife
every woman stopped and stared

she allowed a smile to slip across her lips
knowing he was hers
and only hers

at that moment she felt
great power
a superior feeling

every woman
wanted him
and wanted
to be her
