QUESTIONS:

  1. Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you think there is only one person meant to share that bond with you, out there in the world?  (credit to Cyranny of Cyranny’s Cove) If there is I have not found him. My first and only real relationship was a dud other than my 3 children. Will my soul mate show up in the years I have left? I am almost 63 years old. 
  2. Ice cream cone, shake or other ice cream concoction? I love love love ice cream in all shapes and forms. My favorite is probably a banana split. 
  3. What would be the hat to end all hats? What could you wear on your head that would make people stop what they are doing and stare in awe and amazement? I never wear anything on my head so no matter what I put on my head would draw people’s attention. A neighbor gave me a pull on multicolored hat like the woolen ones people wear at winter time, but no way I would wear that. I threw it in a drawer. 
  4. What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time? High heels. I never, ever wear them. I wear flats if I have to wear a fancy shoe and they are hard to find in a super small extra wide. Now that I am eligible for special diabetic shoes I can get an extra, extra wide shoe, but it is still a little too long. The special inserts make it fit fairly comfortably.

HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE!

Bonus Question.   Please share a moment of gratitude that you experienced during the past week. My gratitude moment would be finding these great leggings that are so comfortable and have pockets that I can put my cell phone in or anything else I put in my pockets usually. Plus I have to get new shirts to go with them since I need a longer, tunic type shirt. New wardrobe, yeah! I am really overweight so finding leggings that I can fit in at all is a surprise, but to find them and they are comfortable is great. The company is Pop Fit Clothing and big on Face Book.

What was That?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019


We’ve lived in the desert for all my life and I thought nothing could surprise me. I was used to the dryness of the area. The fact that no life forms, other than us humans could survive here. We brought in what we needed to survive. However, over the last few weeks, strange things have been happening.

Every night, for the last few nights, the sirens have been going off to let us know that something strange is happening somewhere and to be ready. For what? We had no idea.

“And there’s the sirens.” What now? Just then a huge bang comes from the roof of our house. There is a thrashing sound and a huge tentacle works its way down through the roof and into the kitchen. We all huddle together shaking. We doubt it comes in peace. It continues to rip apart the roof and eventually its body makes it through and lands on the kitchen floor and just stares at us as we quake in fear.

“Hungry,” it says and looks right at us and then heads towards us. We were backed into the corner. The sirens continued to wail as we looked the monster straight into its face before it took its first bite. All of us at once. “Good,” it mumbled with its mouth full.
