To the Left – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

https://lindaghill.com/2021/05/07/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-may-8-2021/

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “to your left.” When you sit down to write your post, look to your left. What is the thing closest to you? Write about the memories that thing induces. Enjoy!

***

Well, the first think I thought of was remembering the cadence calls for the Army. These were used to help the troops march in time. Most times they were kind of funny. There are all kinds of them.

***

But, that’s not what’s on the left here. There are a lot of things to my left, but none are very interesting. There’s a box of tissues, a container of antibacterial hand wipes, a couple bottles of hand lotion, a couple bottles of perfume, and some assorted papers. Boring!

The prompt didn’t say how near or far to the left, though. Nearest would be my phone, which is on the computer desk. Farther left is the back door, which is open. I can see through the glass storm door that the wind is blowing very hard tossing the branches and leaves of the tree all around. It’s hot out 91 degrees F, and sunny.

So, that that for this time. Have a super weekend. 🙂

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.) … I’d not want to be either of these. How about just nice and happy! 🙂

 

Have you ever made someone cry? … Not that I know of, except for laughing so hard they cried at something goofy I said or did.

 

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter? … Definitely a dreamer. It takes a lot of dreaming and thinking about things before I ever get up and go to it.

 

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play? … This would be an electric bass guitar. I had one one time, with very good intentions of doing just this. Didn’t work out, so I sold my guitar to a guy who actually did play it in a band.

Flower of the Day – Bells of Ireland

Flower of the Day – Bells of Ireland

***

I saw these interesting flowers at the store the other day. The tag said they were Bells of Ireland.

On reading about them, I found they are not native to Ireland, but come from Turkey. They are also called a shell flower, and are a symbol of good luck.

  3. What’s the difference between the “boot” of a car and the “trunk” of a car? … The boot refers to the little baby booties hung from the rear view mirror in a car, and the trunk would be the GPS connection – that little fin like thing on the top of a car.
  4. What’s the difference between a “nappie” and a “diaper”? … A nappie is a man’s bow tie. It makes him look dapper. A diaper is a dishrag.
  5. What’s the difference between the “pavement” and a “sidewalk”? … Well, they are both streets, but the pavement gets potholes and the sidewalk gets cracks.
  6. What’s the difference between “chips” and “French fries”? … Chips are colorful plastic disks used in the card game Poker. French fries are foreign insects called flies.
