Three Things Challenge # 13 & # 14


Three Things Challenge # 13 & # 14

Today’s prompt: toothpaste, spaceship, clover

Today’s prompt: finger, waffle, javelin


The Clover leaf restaurant is a funky kind of place…my kind of place. I never know from one visit to the next what outrageous … well, what’s a good word to describe the things I see there, eclectic maybe? Everything is diverse and mingled in a great big mash up of tastes. The food they serve changes every day, the costumes the employees wear, the decorative touches all change.

I was in the mood for waffles, as it was mid-morning when I entered the restaurant. I was met at the reception desk by a guy holding a javelin. He didn’t say a word, but just banged his spear three times on the floor. Then he pointed the sharp end toward a table.

After sitting down, I picked up the menu booklet, and running my finger down the listed items, I finally found the breakfast food offerings of the day. There were little pictures of the food by the descriptions. For waffles, they were called Out of This World, and were in the shape of a spaceship, instead of being the normal looking square or round ones. Giggling to myself, I ordered them, and do you know what? The spaceship waffles were the best I’d ever tasted. They were truly out of this world good.

When I was presented with my ticket to pay, it came with a small tube of complimentary toothpaste and a Smurf toy. I think this is a hint of what the restaurant will be featuring tomorrow.

I’ll be back!

Love Is In Da Blog – Our Choice – Day 28


Love Is In Da Blog – Our Choice – Day 28


Today is the last day of Bee’s Love Is In Da Blog musical challenge. We get to pick any song of our own choosing. Thanks, Bee!

I’ve really had a good time following the prompts you suggested for the challenge. It’s been fun to see what songs everyone else found, too.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to have a listen and your thoughts about the songs!


These two songs are favorites of mine. They were a couple of the featured songs in the movie soundtrack of “Tokyo Pop”. That movie is definitely one of my favorites. In the movie the first song was sung by Carrie Hamilton, daughter of Carol Burnett. Carrie has sadly passed away now, but she was a wonderful actress.
The second song is sung by Diamond Yukai Tadokoro, who is an actual rock star in his homeland of Japan.
These songs were the love songs the characters in the movie wrote and sang to each other. They are very emotional and lovely.
I tried to find lyrics to them, but never could for some reason. Hope you enjoy listening to them, and maybe sometime you can find the movie to watch. It’s really good.
“Hiro’s Song” also known as “Never Forget”, sung by Carrie Hamilton in the 1988 movie, “Tokyo Pop”.

The next morning, they got ready to drive to Raleigh fairly early. “Let’s just get something for breakfast at the little store, to go…we’ll eat in the car, on the way,”  Steve said.

It was another sunny day, with only a slight chill in the air, and they enjoyed the ride, as they munched on doughnuts, and drank their coffee. They arrived in the city, going first to the bank, then drove around until they found the printing company. It was a fairly small business, and they were the only customers there, this early in the morning.

Ghost pulled out the pages he’d made for the book, putting them on the counter.

“We want this made into a real book,” Steve said. He explained how they wanted the pages and writing to look, just the way Ghost had them arranged.

“How many copies?” the clerk asked.

Steve looked over at Ghost, “How many do you think we’ll need? We’ll want one for us, then some to sell at the gig, right?”

Ghost nodded, “Yeah, I want to do that.”

Steve turned back to the clerk, “Well, let’s start with fifty. We can get more made, if we need to, I suppose.”

The clerk looked doubtful that they would be able to even pay for one, much less fifty, but he quoted them a price, anyway.

“Ok, sure, do the fifty. When will they be ready?” Steve asked.

“We’ll have them ready in a week,” the clerk said. “We’ll need half the payment now, then the rest when you pick them up.”

Steve wasn’t sure if this was normal procedure or not, but he pulled out his wallet.

“Steve…” Ghost said, pulling on Steve’s jacket. “Steve, come over here a minute.”

“What is it, Ghost? I’m almost done here.”

“Steve, that guy thinks we can’t pay for them. I heard him thinking that we’re too poor to afford to get the books made.”

“Oh, yeah?” Steve looked back toward the clerk. “Well, I’ll just pay him right now, then, for the whole order…then he won’t have anything to say about it.”

He went back to the counter. “I think we’ll just go ahead and pay you for the whole order, right now, if that’s okay…before you do the j0b?”

The clerk looked a bit surprised, but said, “Sure, that will be fine.” He did a double-take, as Steve pulled out the cash, counting out the full amount.

“Will that do it?” Steve asked

“Yes, sir, sure will,” the clerk said. “You can pick them up a week from today.”

Steve smiled at Ghost, as they went out the door. “Thanks, Ghost. That went better than I thought. It took all my effort not to smack him. It’s hard being polite.”

Ghost patted Steve on the back, and laughed, “You did good, Sir.”

“Yeah, I’m sure glad we stopped at the bank first, though.”

Next up on their trip to town, was the thrift shop. “From big spenders, to bargain hunters, all in one day,” Steve said, as they went into the store.

“What’cha looking for this time?” Ghost asked.

“Guess I’ll know it when I see it,” Steve said, as they split up to go looking around.

Ghost wandered up and down the aisles, stopping at whatever caught his eye. He found a couple of toys, for the cat to play with, and a dish to put his food in. He also found a hat he could use for his Halloween costume, along with a fishing vest. Then he went looking for Steve.

“Hey, look what I got,” he said, showing Steve.

“Cool, those will work fine, Ghost. I just found some shirts, so far.” He held up a couple. They were both black…one with the logo of a local radio station, the other a vintage rock band tour shirt.

“Uh, Steve…do ya think ya have enough black t-shirts, already?”

“What…you don’t like them?”

“Oh, sure I do, Steve,” Ghost said, shaking his head.

“Well, then, shut up about it,” Steve said.

Ghost rolled his eyes, then went wandering around the store, again. Eventually, Steve was finished, and he found Ghost sitting on a chair in the furniture section of the store.

“Well, I can’t believe it…you finally had enough time to look at everything, and wear your own self out,” Steve laughed. “It must be the first time.”

“Yeah, guess so,” Ghost said. He yawned and stretched, as he got up from the old recliner. “This time you were taking forever.”

“Well, let’s go pay for this stuff, and go eat lunch somewhere,” Steve said.


At the pizza place they’d stopped to eat at, Ghost was unusually quiet.

“What’s bugging you?” Steve asked.

Ghost shrugged. “Just thinking about stuff…about the murder house, and what to do about it.”

Steve frowned. “Maybe you should just forget it, and tell them you can’t do it.”

“No, I want to do it…I just need to think how,” Ghost said.

“Well, you know my opinion on the matter, so I’ll shut up about it, then,” Steve said. He finished up the pizza, and they walked back to the car.

“You ready to head home? My leg is aching now, from being up so long,” Steve said.

“Yeah, let’s go,” Ghost said, getting in the car.

Steve drove a few blocks, trying to get back to the main highway, but got turned around, going the wrong way.

“Steve, stop!” Ghost hollered. He pointed to a small store, wedged between a coffee shop and a beauty salon.

“What is it? I can’t stop in the middle of the road,” Steve said, but he did slow down.

“Well, go around and park somewhere. I saw a store I want to go in,” Ghost said.

Steve did find a parking spot, close to the little shop. Ghost jumped out and headed down the sidewalk. “C’mon, Steve,” he said. He was walking fast, leaving Steve to catch up on his own.

“Wait up,” Steve yelled, but Ghost had already gone inside. As he came closer, Steve could see that the shop was an odd looking place. It wasn’t big, but was crammed full of all kinds of colorful items. He just stood at the entrance for a minute, taking in the kaleidoscopic effect. This must be what the inside of Ghost’s head looks like…. Ghost’s room at home was mild, compared to this place; and from what he could tell, by watching Ghost looking around, a smile on his face, it was like Ghost had found his true home.

He took a deep breath, before he tackled walking down the narrow aisles, hoping his crutches wouldn’t knock anything over. Then, he almost choked on the heavy incense smoke. This reminds me of something…something bad… He began flashing back to Arkady’s creepy shop, down in New Orleans…the horror of Ann’s death, and the vampires…


Next part coming soon!

Love Is In Da Blog – Movie/Film – Day 27


Love Is In D Blog – Movie/Film – Day 27


Today Bee has asked us for love songs from a movie or film. Thanks, Bee!

I always liked this movie, “Top Gun”, and the song. One reason I remembered this one is because (if I remember correctly) it was one of the first movies we ever rented to watch on a VCR. We didn’t own one at the time, so we rented one from a store. This was before VCRs were commonplace in everyone’s home, at least ours. My daughter was having a birthday party and sleepover, and she wanted them to have a movie to watch.


“Take My Breath Away”, by Berlin, was a song from the 1986 movie, “Top Gun”. It was written by Giorgio Moroder and Tom Whitlock, and is on the soundtrack from the movie, and on the album, “Count Three and Pray”. It is on the Columbia and Geffen label.



Watching every motion in my foolish lover’s game
On this endless ocean finally lovers know no shame
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and sayTake my breath away
Take my breath awayWatching I keep waiting still anticipating love
Never hesitating to become the fated ones
Turning and returning to some secret place to hide
Watching in slow motion as you turn to me and say,My Love,
Take my breath awayThrough the hourglass I saw you, in time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed I called you, and turned to hear you say
If only for today I am unafraidTake my breath away
Take my breath awayWatching every motion in this foolish lover’s game
Haunted by the notion somewhere there’s a love in flames
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn my way and sayTake my breath away,
My Love
Take my breath away
My Love
Take my breath away
Take my breath away

Three Things Challenge # 12


Three Things Challenge # 12

Today’s prompt: meatloaf, charger, sunblock


I was busy fixing a meatloaf for my supper, when the end of the world happened.

Just as I put the dish into the oven to cook, all the electricity in the house went out. I tried the lights, the TV, and checked the fuse box, but they all looked fine…just wouldn’t work.

Getting a bit worried, I grabbed my cell phone to call my friends. I wanted to know if their power was out, too. When I turned on my phone, though, I saw that I only had one % left in the battery. Crap! I got my charger and plugged it in. Of course I’d forgotten that to charge my phone, I needed electricity.

Now I was without supper and no phone life left. I knew I should have remembered to charge it up, but I was notorious about forgetting it.

I went outside. It was still daylight, as it was only about 5 p.m. The sun was on it’s way down, though. At least I think it was. Something was causing a sunblock. Well, I don’t know if that was what you’d call it, but the sky was funny looking. It wasn’t bright out, but there weren’t any clouds either. My neighbors were all outside, too, looking around. So it wasn’t just me and my house.

What happened next you won’t believe unless you were there. All the civil defense sirens began blowing…so loud! We heard the announcement like a voice from on high, but it was just the speakers attached to the power poles.

We have been invaded by unknown planetary entities …take cover…take cover now!

And so we did.

I ran back into my house, just running around from room to room, not knowing what to do. I’ve always been aware of tornado safety rules, and earthquake survival tips, but what will save me from alien invasion? Nothing! I’m doomed!

Finally, I grabbed my purse, because that’s what you do in an emergency, of course, and crawled under my bed. Maybe if they couldn’t see me, I’d be okay. I stayed there for I don’t know how long, but it seemed like hours. Eventually another announcement came over the speakers that all was clear. The electricity came back on and the TV news was giving explanations about the incident.

It seems the alien spacecraft that had blocked our sunshine, and depleted our electricity were not invading at all. They were friendly, but were just making a pit stop to charge up their own vehicle space ship while on their way to another planet.

Whew! Everyone was fine, but I really think they could have given us a little warning that they were stopping by for a short visit. Don’t you?

Love Is In Da Blog – Musical – Day 26


Love Is In Da Blog – Musical – Day 26


For today’s song prompt suggestion, Bee has asked for favorite songs from  musical. Thanks, Bee!

I’ve never seen a musical live on a stage, only those made for TV movies that have a lot of singing in them. There’s lots of them to choose from.  Anyway, I liked the sequel, “Grease 2” better than the first one, so I found a song I liked from it.

I think the video says you have to go to Youtube to see the video. Just click that little statement, and it should come up.


“A Girl For All Seasons”, from the movie soundtrack,  “Grease 2”, was written by Dominic Bugatti and Frank Musker. It was performed in the movie by Maureen Teefy, Lorna Luft, Alison Price, and Michelle Pfeiffer. It was released in 1982, and is on the RSO and Polydor labels.


I’ll be yours in springtime when the flowers are in bloom.
We’ll wander through the meadows, in all their sweet perfume.
And every night I’ll hold you tight beneath that April moon.

Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh
I’ll be your girl for all seasons, all the year through.
Your girl for all seasons,
‘Cause I love, yes I love to be everything to you, just you.

I’ll be yours in summer, when we’re playin’ in the sand.
We’ll spend the day together, makin’ love and gettin’ tanned.
And on the beach at sunset, when we’re walking hand in hand.


If you fall in the fall, you’ll see, September can be heavenly.
If you fall, say you’ll fall for me,
When autumn leaves are fallin’ from the trees.

I’ll be yours in winter, when the snow is on the ground.
I’ll warm you through December, and I’ll always be around.
We’ll kiss below the mistletoe, when Santa comes to town.


Girl for all seasons, I’ll be your girl for all seasons.
Summer in sunshine, winter in snowflakes.
Springtime in showers, falling in love.
Summer, winter, spring, and fall
Yes, I’ll be everything to you.

Here we have this week’s SYW questions from Melanie.


What, in your opinion, is the point to life?

No idea. Just enjoy the beauty of nature, be kind to animals & people, try to live an honest life as best you can.

What was your most recent lie?  You don’t have to get really specific obviously.

I probably have said that some food tasted good, when it really wasn’t all that great.

What country do you consider the strangest?   (it’s all In fun folks, ALL countries may seem strange to outsiders)

They are all strange in their own way, if you aren’t used to their customs. That just makes them interesting.

What’s your funniest story involving a car?

There’s lots of weird stories about our cars, but this one I’ll never forget. It was our jinx car, an old 4 door Chevy Caprice (blue). We’d got it, and immediately had troubles with everything. I drove it to my work place and the people wanted to see our new ride, and as soon as one girl saw it she said, “That’s the jinx car!” Turns out some people they knew had just traded it in because of all the troubles they had with it, and now she recognized it as being a jinx. And it sure was for us, too.

What bother me the most was that to get this awful jinx car, we’d traded in our Mustang, which I loved.

I myself traded in the jinx car later on for a Camaro. I was happy again.
