Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…


Twittering Tales #146, The Gift…

Kat Myrman at Mercury Colliding has provided another interesting photo prompt for a very short story of no more than 280 characters.  My first impression of this picture was that it reminded me of marionettes.  So here’s my entry this week and you can read all the entries and/or join in by visiting Kat’s site.

Papa, it’s wonderful!

Well, it’s not everyday that a prince turns 10, now is it?

May I make the puppets move?

Puppets? Oh, no, son, they’re not toys. They’re tiny subjects I had created just for you.  Now, be gentle —

I’m making this one fly!

Wilhelm, no — his arm!

Monday Musings on Tuesday about Reptiles…

I did spend Saturday afternoon at a reptile show held at the golf club where DDIL works.  Not totally wild about snakes and lizards and stuff, but it was a pretty fascinating presentation and the guy did a great job of presenting scientific facts interspersed with fun things for the kiddos!

We saw an iguana, another lizard named Pancake, three pythons including a giant albino one named Sunny, a tortoise, alligator and bullfrog.  I elected not to hold anything but I did pet them all.  It was pretty much like touching purses!  Do I know how to spend my weekends or what?!


Parole Board, Twittering Tales #145…

Kat at Mercury Colliding has provided another great photo for a very short story of 280 characters or less.  You can see all the stories here!


My heart pounds as I draw a breath.

Yes, Ms. Gray? Something to add?

No, sir, I think my papers are all there.

So it seems. The guard will take you back. The Parole Board will rule next month.

No, please!  They said today!

Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

Just teasing!  (I really went to the pool and going to a reptile show later. Now that’s how you spend the weekend!)
