#JusJoJan and #1linerWeds for 1/31/18

Boo hoo hoo

Sayonara January

Here is my final entry for #JusJoJan. I sort of cannot believe that I finished what I started.  Feels good to complete a goal.   I will continue on with #1lineWeds even though writing just one line is hard for me.  I have got things to say people!!!

“I am the Goat … Greatest of all time but you already knew that didn’t ya?” ~ Terry Bradshaw on Better Late Than Never

Terry Bradshaw TB … not to be confused with the other goat … another TB – Tom Brady.  Oooooh let the ire commence.  Me? I stay out of it.  I am not a football fan even before the most recent controversies.  I only ever watched the Super Bowl for the commercials and the halftime show anyway 🙂


Here are the rules and ping back

As always, more to come.


#JusJoJan for 1/30/18 ~ Scrumptious

I immediately thought of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Despite all the singing, this movie scared me!  The Child Catcher.  Oh my!!!

Prompt by: Judy Check out her blog.  You’ll be glad that you did!

Interpreted by J-Dub.

One more day of #JusJoJan.  Boohoohoohoohoo 😦

#JusJoJan for 1/29/18 ~ Fantastic

Woo Hoo!

“I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now you like me” ~ Sally Field.

I am feeling fantastic!  Doesn’t take much. Just pick my word.  REad some of my blog.  It’s like winning an Oscar.  Thank you Linda!

Fantastic!  Why did I pick this word?  Hmmm.

Well I was speeding reading Linda’s post asking for suggestions.  I thought there were already enough words.  I added my two cents (or my one word) fantastic referring to #JusJoJan in general.  The idea appealed to me as a carrot and stick kinda girl.  I NEED prompts to propel me.

#JusJoJan and everything else Linda does is fantastic.  She is the hostess with the mostest!  I am forever grateful that I found her here in bloglandia.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at her blog for yourselves: Life in Progress.

Now I try my hand at an acrostic poem:

Feelings of euphoria

Ancillary to my brain

Nirvana, sweet nirvana

Teasing just the same

Always trying to mask

Sadness from the soul

Torture turned


Captivating to behold

For those who want to play along, here are the rules and ping back. Only two more days.  Don’t miss out on the fantastic fun!

As always, more to come.

#JusJoJan for 1/28/18 ~ Knight

From the Fabulous Linda G. Hill:

Your prompt for January 28th, 2018, brought to you by author Leta Hawk, is “Knight.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Leta at her blog, “Hawk’s Happenings,” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://letaphawk.wordpress.com/

KNIGHT: Sir Elton John is my favorite of all the knights.  He is kicking off a three year farewell tour which includes a stop my hometown on 12/12/18.  Lulu’s birthday is on 12/15/18 so I will not be attending.  Well that and looks like the show may be sold out.  Nothing on Ticketmaster. And yesterday at the beauty parlor one of the ladies was pleased as punch that she already scored her tickets.  Part of me knows I cannot advance plan anything.  “Can’t say baby where I’ll be in a year,”  ala Aerosmith Sweet Emotions!

Lulu turns the big ’21’ and we have been talking about a Vegas trip to celebrate.  God willing.  We wanted it to be a family affair but B and Pony are out.  B because he is a ranch owner and his life will be that of cattle baron with no time for fun and games.  And Pony because of the family curse on B’s side.  He thinks he would flip his switch and max out his credit cards and go down in a blaze of glory. Earworm, thank you Jon Bon Jovi.

Too bad for them.  Girls trip plus 1!

Maybe we should stay at Excalibur and have a knight themed good ole time.  Maybe not.  The thought of going to Vegas with my kid is weird.  Even though she will be a legal adult by then.

Maybe we pick Maryland instead …  To see Edgar Allen Poe’s gravesite and other assorted historical places.  In 6th grade, I randomly picked Maryland and had to make a salt map of it and write a report.  I may still have the report actually.  In 7th grade literature, I memorized the Raven.  I see a theme merging.  Better than throwing a dart at the map and ending up in Minneapolis :).  That was so last July!

Anyhoo, having adult children is surreal.  And don’t get me started on having an almost 30 year old.  Where the hell did the time go? Into a vortex. Suck it!

Only 3 more days!  Follow the rules and ping back to join in.

#JusJoJan and #SoCS for 1/27/18 ~ Movement

Happy Saturday World!

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: movement. However, don’t use the word “movement.” Choose some sort of movement, and base your post on that. Enjoy!


Well this is starting to feel a little like homework.  My typical #SoCS style borders on re-donk (made up word combining ridiculous and donkey).  At a minimum I am silly, spewing any little random thought that pops into my brain.  But writing about a movement is thought-provoking stuff or at least I think it should be. This requires research and a level of seriousness I do not possess at the moment.

Then I re-read the prompt – some sort of movement 

The wheels on the bus … that’s movement … you know they go around and around

Ah who am I kidding, I got nuthing.

It’s a wonderful prompt though and all you creatives out there will take it to the next level.  And no way I was skipping today being this close to the goal.  Four more days y’all and #JusJoJan will be fin.  In the meantime, I guess I will enjoy reading everyone else’s post because that is part of the joy too.

#JusJoJan for 1/26/18 ~ Address

Rules and Ping Back

The prompt today is address by the one and only John Holton!!!!
Here is the link to his blog: The Sound of One Hand Typing

Check it out, you’ll learn a thing or two or three and be better for it:)

Hmmm.  So many directions … or two ways to go … noun or verb

I’ll take address as a verb for $500 Alex 🙂

What is to think about and begin to deal with (an issue or problem)?

Nope, not gonna, don’t wanna.  My preferred MO is that of ostrich!!!!
Head firmly in sand.

#JusJoJan for 1/25/18 ~ Prediction

Hmm 🤔 Prediction aka Forecast

Being a weatherman, it’s the only job where you can be consistently wrong and still keep your position.

Just joking with you. No offense to all you forecasters out there.

Now I’m in the mood to watch the Weather Man with Nic Cage.

Boy he fell off the planet 🌎 didn’t he?

Con Air, Peggy Sue Got Married, Family Man. Just a few of his movies 🎥 I enjoy 😊

#JusJoJan for 1/23/18 ~ Colour

Prompt: Colour as suggested by  Supernaturalsnark aka  Hip To Be Snark

Go back and check the links.  Peruse around.  Go on … I’ll wait.

Welcome back to the party! Today is B’s birthday!  I think I should call his mom and congratulate her on having a fantastic son.

Wait J-Dub!  Fantastic is not until 1/29/18.  Wait your turn.  Cool your jets.  Hold your horses.

Rewind … restart

Today’s prompt is colour.

I think of the scene from Little Miss Sunshine when Dwayne realizes he is color blind and cannot fly jets. Brings tears to my eyes every time.  Sometimes you do everything right and life still throws you a curve ball.

Not a very colourful choice is it?  Except that dramatic is a synonym for colourful.  That’s me playing loosey goosey again.

The above was brought to you by the mind of one J-Dub McGillicutty for the purpose of #JusJoJan.  If you’d like to join in on the fun, you have eight days.  Here are the Rules and Ping Back.

#JusJoJan for 1/22/18 ~ Liberty

Capt. Jill suggested today’s prompt – Liberty.  Here is a link to her blog.  Check it out, you’ll be glad you did.

My immediate thought was Patrick Henry’s famous speech which included “Give me liberty or give me death”.

Then I thought about Declaration of Independence: … the preservation of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Inalienable rights bestowed upon all of us.

As absolutes are rarely true, I am gonna say in varying degrees are bestowed upon many some of us who are living in the good ole U.S.A.

That is all, I am not going elaborate and get political.  Liberty is a very weighty topic that deserves face to face discussion and not an online diatribe.
