A Letter a Week ~ P

Place:  physician’s office (veterinarian)

Emotion:  personable

Adjective:  pampered

Verb: panic

My animal: pooch

Our family’s pampered pooch, a Lhasa apso, disliked her scheduled
check-ups with the veterinarian.
The moment we’d enter the physician’s waiting room she’d panic,

kick-start extreme anxiety followed by show of desire to leave the
premises.
This particular June day, after formal introductions, I handed over
the baggie I’d brought from home with my pooch’s stool sample to
a brand-new physician’s assistant.
We all were personable, each with other, and then began the wait
to see the physician.
Five minutes later the assistant re-appeared with a concerned look
on her face.
She stated she’d forgotten to tag-label poop samples of my pooch
and another.
A dilemma for certain (LOL) until I suggested she take another look.
Within the plastic baggie I’d brought in was poop with a special
ingredient, PLay-Doh.
It was the new assistant’s lucky day.
You couldn’t miss the pink, yellow and shades of blue within the
Lhasa apso’s specimen.

A letter per week ~ K

https://nopenotpam.com/2022/06/12/a-letter-a-week-k/

place = Karawatha Forest, Australia
emotion = keen
adjective = kind-hearted
verb = keep
my animal = Koala

Sometimes in life one forms opinions and for certain I always thought the
Koala‘ was a bear.
Wrong??
“It’s a marsupial whose adorable features give off the impression it’s a bear.”
Research stated:
“There are approximately a dozen Koalas” in the ‘Karawatha’ Forest, a nature
reserve near Brisbane, Australia.
This cutie is far from ‘keen‘, an observance made while watching it stare at a
plate of toxic Eucalyptus leaves.
‘Keep’ it away from a karaoke machine. It’s sickening high-pitched cry sounds
more like an elephant.
This animal, an epitome of a cartoon teddy bear, is far from ‘kind-hearted’ to
humans.

Look you can purchase the stuffed version (mother and baby) at Amazon ~ aww how cute!

Six Sentence Stories ~ June 9th

prompt word: key

Tackling a challenge as if back in high school, in the early morning hours while
the majority of folks are fast asleep I accessed my cell phone and asked Google
a question.

I wanted to know which of the 104 keys on a laptop keyboard is used the least
in today’s world of technology.

Fifteen to twenty minutes later, after scanning numerous articles, I actually
found the answer, ‘the scroll lock key’, one I can’t recall usage thereof on any
computer.

Closely following in routine typing are keys ‘pause break’, tilde/squiggly (~),
cap lock, menu, insert and function keys (F12 – F2 – F3 – F6 – F7 and F9) listed
in downward ranking of popularity. 

When I came across an article titled ‘3 Secret Keyboard Keys Every Computer
User Should Know’ my cell phone battery now drained and icon showing red
forced me to call it quits.

I don’t know if I’m just a curious soul who continually likes to learn, a fan of the
game show ‘Jeopardy’ or the man upstairs wants me to continue down the path
where the key to success is determination.

Six Sentence Stories

https://girlieontheedge1.wordpress.com/2022/04/10/sundays-six-sentence-story-word-prompt-207/

prompt:  board

In 2017, I designed a weight loss visionary board.
In hopes to keep myself on track I chose simplicity.
The cost of supplies was minimal, a cork board with
lots of magazine cutouts and a few supplies from the
dollar store, a board which could be maintained with
little fuss.
I considered it a daily reminder ‘one I needed’ to stay on track.
Although I lost weight over time, I never reached my final goal.
I’m thankful I took a picture which was stored in my photos as
it will be beneficial to me for the revision of the board (some
similarities and some brand-new ideas).

Tanka poem above ~ hilarious explanation
1. I needed an answer to a question.
2. Prepared with account number I soon
met my first dilemma.
3. Oh dear I need my glasses as the company’s 800 number
is spelled out (alphabetic).
4. I placed the call and listened to the menu selection.
5. ‘Other’ was my chosen option.
6. I’m told next step in process was receipt of a text message.
7. Instructions to access a hyperlink made me stop and think.
8. Being polite I replied to the text with ‘no thank you’.
9. I left the room to conduct a search via another method.

Imagine reading this ‘next’ text (verbatim).
“I’m sorry. I’m a bot and I’m still learning. Ask your questions…



99 Words Story ~ Anxious Me

This week’s challenge ~ write a story in 99 words ‘exact’ . . .
Inclusive ‘anxiety’ – who has it – what is source – any conflict – how

to use it beneficially

https://carrotranch.com/2022/02/06/february-7-story-challenge-in-99-words/

A child of an undiagnosed mother with mental issues faces a huge

hurdle to overcome a life void of love and move forward in a positive

manner and create the opposite of a dysfunctional lifestyle.

In all aspects I did my ultimate best NOT to follow in her footsteps.

At age twenty-one I gave birth to a stillborn son (already deceased

two weeks) due to RH Negative blood factor.

The unbelievable aftermath, a major reason for seeking counseling,

would follow me and replay again with death of another child and

divorce.

Believe me ‘anxiety,’ real – no laughing matter.

Sunday Wordle #538

Today’s words:

books – honey – leaving – hunger – broken
sign – silk – black – wind – dust – family – truck

The family‘s pick-up truck
loaded with cases of books,
the result of wife’s hunger to learn
left the husband’s view blackened
when a severe dust bowl struck.
Winds encircled and now the
classification of a broken-down
vehicle leaving all family members
in panic mode was sure sign time
to use that silk scarf to flag for assistance.

Honey, this is one memorable Sunday drive!

Prompt picture challenge – nature scene

Ah, today is going to be a good day (tell myself).

And so I scroll the reader for something positive to write about (challenge myself).

Alas several posts down, I find one I’ve participated in before (great).

But I’m unsure of the picture so take a ‘http’ trip and find a nature site (beautiful).

Collect as my clues as possible for a mini-story as six minutes passes quickly (undoubtedly).

Down another sip of mornin’ tea from my grey mug outlined cat words inscribed “Don’t

stress – Meow! (laughing out loud).

Eeks! I can’t go back and make corrections ‘block’ editor won’t allow. (sigh)

Quick attempt at a Tanka poem:

Three Things Challenge #657

Today’s words: attire – desk – hiding

The woman dressed in casual attire to run errands.

At the bank she chose to use the ATM rather than chance

meeting a friend or acquaintance with her medium length hair

pulled back into a ponytail.

When the ATM machine prompted preference of denomination

of withdrawal currency she chose ‘no preference’.

Much to her surprise along with mostly twenties appeared a

crisp $100 bill.

It looked untouched and she decided to save it for a special

occasion then placed it in an envelope in her rather large tote bag.

Three weeks passed and suddenly she found herself low on cash.

Wait – she remembered the stored-for-later $100 only to turn up

empty-handed after a quick search.

Where could she have placed it for safe keeping?

She searched her usual places of which her desk was a most popular

one.

Fifteen minutes had quickly flown by and she didn’t wish to be late

for an appointment.

She thought perhaps she’d dropped it and well whomever found it

was a little bit richer.

A few days later she took out all the ones, fives, tens and twenties

from her current ATM withdrawal and decided to place them in

order of denominations.

There in her wallet before her eyes was the crisp missing one-hundred

dollar bill.

It had been hiding unseen for near a month.

To herself she wondered how on earth it found its way from the

closed envelope to the inside pouch of her wallet.

A fleeting thought followed by an outburst of laughter.

She still hasn’t spent it; however, she did transfer it to a zippered

storage space.

Now she wonders if it will be there when she decides to look for

it or will it have found another hiding place.
