#SLS for 5/31/20

The added pressure of the new editor is keeping this short and sweet today.

When Jim prompted “Cinnamon/Mint/Parsley/Pepper/Rosemary/Sage/Salt/Thyme” my only thought was this 1996 gem called “Pepper” writers: Jeff Coffey, Gibby Haynes, and Paul Leary.

Without further ado, lyrics within, hope you enjoy.

#SoCS for 5/30/20 ~

Here we go here we go now.  Time once again for #SoCS.  If you too want to have a rousing good time, follow the link to the rules and ping back.

Linda says …

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spay/splay/spray.” Use one, use two, use ’em all, it’s up to you. Have fun!

Bob Barker always ended the Price is Right saying  “spay and neuter your pets”.  That’s it, got nothing else for spay.

Splay.  Hmm.  Think, think and think … Jazz hands.  Fingers splayed apart. And again, I’m stumped.

Moving on to spray.  “Say it don’t spray it”  Hairspray or insect repellent.  Of course there is the infamous Lysol disinfectant spray.  That hoarders grabbed off the shelves.  I’m way over Rona and other assorted things.  Actually I’m sad.   If I do not get over it soon, I will diagnose myself with depression and seek help of the non-medicated variety.

Nothing is percolating in ye ole noggin. Hoping for a return to creativity in the coming weeks.  Hope you folks enjoy the rest of your Saturday.

As always, more to come.

#WATWB ~ 5/29/20

Sadio Mane’ shares his wealth. This is what I’d like to think I’d do if I made 100k a week. The greater good makes my ❤ happy. What an inspiring young man.

Thanks to our illustrious hosts. Best concept ever. #WATWB.

Hope You Fickle Bitch

HOPE

I see you standing there all sassy and ready to go

Making me think change is possible after all this time

Years of denial broke open like an oyster

Inside mother of pearl

Iridescent not quite shiny but faded shimmer in and out

Done with all the mental mind games

Calling it out

You’re not to blame

YOU

ARE

NOT

TO

BLAME

You’ve got issues of your own to own

Pun intended

 

 

 

WP block editor – I’m about to be sol

While I’ve ignored the message gracing by homepage, I’ve seen lots of posts regarding upcoming changes to WP on June 1.  Being  a self-proclaimed luddite, I’m waiting until my script gets flipped.  No practicing.  I will either sink or swim.  Like I always do.  When in doubt charlie out or do the left click, right click shuffle.  I hope the platform doesn’t become a ghost town.  I’m not sure how I’d start up any place else?!?!?

Here’s a cover that explains what I hope will happen.

Truth be told, I prefer the Gloria Gaynor version.  Oh well.  Wish me luck!

As always, more to come.

Share Your World 🌍

Today we honor the brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. My first second attempt at sharing my world is reflective of this day. Thinking deeply about it, those sacrifices are why I’m able to share my opinions in the first place.

Questions:

In your opinion, does patriotism require the belief that one’s country is the greatest on earth? By definition, patriotism is love of or devotion to one’s country. You can love and be devoted to someone without always liking them so I’d say no. Don’t read too much into that. I’m my daddy’s girl. I bleed red, white, and blue.

Why is patriotism considered by some to be the highest of virtues? Hmm. Perhaps because it demonstrates unconditional love and devotion? If it isn’t fanatical, that’s a beautiful thing to witness.

What is so important about love of country? The sense of community it brings. Unity is powerful.

Shouldn’t we be more concerned about humankind, or the planet as a whole, rather than a single country? Polly Anna over here thinks we can do both.

What is the relationship between decisions and consequences? Owning your decisions means you’re willing to accept the consequences. I’m an over thinker who doesn’t make decisions without first considering what are the consequences. Always doing a mini CBA in my brain. Should I or shouldn’t I? That is the question 😊

What is social justice? An illusion.

and one ‘easy’ one because those others? Fairly difficult. What’s one body part you wouldn’t mind losing? (told you. Silly). An earlobe.

Gratitude: What is something that made you smile during the past week? Not much sadly. I’m in a funk. Though I’m thankful for coworkers who make me laugh 🤭
