#SoCS for 10/13/18 ~ Precious

Good morning bloglandia.  Rise and shine!!  Time once again for #SoCS.  Our hostess with the mostest aka the lovely Linda gave us the following prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “precious.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Without skipping a beat.  Boom!  Gollum of JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

I have not read any of the books and have not seen any of the movies but I’d have to be living under a freakin rock to never have heard about Gollum and the ring he calls precious. The above clip freaks me out.  What a nasty little troll.  No wait he’s a hobbit.

Any who, that’s all she wrote.  My stream is caught up on the rocks.  But I still have more to say.  I know it!  Think, think and think.

What about precious metals?  A co-worker had part of her investments in precious metals but at the advice of a financial planner, she moved her stuff.  She continued to “do the math” which is my running theme of late and had she left her investment alone, she may have very well retired early.  The stock market is risky and being conservative (in my investment appetite that is), I would never have invested in precious metals to start. So I am still winning!!

Dang it!  My stream is drying up again.  Oh well, I’ve got places to go and people to see.  Me and the kiddo are headed out and about.  Then tonight is the Light the Night walk.  Sure hoping that the weather cooperates.

If you’d like to join this merry band of prompt respondents, look here for the Rules and Ping Back.

As always, more to come.

  1. I work with someone who also has a precious metals business, so that’s kinda cool.
    I read all the books when I was quite young. The Hobbit was my favorite unofficial one in the series though, I read that 4-5 times.

  2. I’ve watched the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies. Loved them all, but you are correct…Gollum was a creepy little dude. I’d never want to run into him in a dark cave. Have a wonderful Saturday with family!
