Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Dom

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 29/18

***

For today’s SOCS, Linda has given us the prompt of ‘dom’. Thanks, Linda!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dom.” Use it as a word, or find a word that starts or ends with it. Have fun!

seldom know what I’m going to post on here until I find myself actually doing it. I’d say mostly I do random things. That’s one good thing about having a blog…we have the freedom to write about anything we want to, or anything that interests us.

Sometimes, to avoid boredom, I make up lists of things I remember. Here’s one…can I name all my elementary school teacher’s names? Let’s see.

  1. Miss Prather…she was very nice
  2. Miss ? then she got married & became Mrs. McIlroy … I got in trouble a lot with this one
  3. Mrs. Pistol … an older woman, but nice.
  4. Mrs. Jackson … one of my favorites (took our class to her house one time – very fancy)
  5. Miss Herman  … nice, but we got in trouble a lot…she had a dog named Trebataw, then got another named Dee O Gee
  6. Mr. O’Neal … fun teacher & loved to talk about his time in the armed services

It’s funny how I can remember all that, and I have trouble remembering even what we had for lunches this past week! It actually took me awhile to think of these! Could be we had…

Friday – tuna fish salad at home

Thursday – chicken sandwich (from leftovers of the night before)

Wednesday – Jr. cheeseburger at What-a-Burger place

Tuesday – Homestyle pot roast at Cast Iron Grill – (family gathering for a birthday lunch)

Monday – ??

So, that’s all I can think of at the moment.

Happy Saturday, hopefully with no boredom! 🙂

TOTALLY RANDOM POST OF THE DAY #1

Standard

TOTALLY RANDOM POST OF THE DAY # 1

Today is the first day of random posts. I love doing the blog challenges, but want to do some different things, too. These will be whatever I think of on the day, be it a photo, a thought, a story, poem, art, or something musical. Hope you enjoy the surprises! 🙂

What is all this, you ask? It looks like a bunch of random items, and you are right.

The other day I was cleaning out my purse, and found all this in there. I have a habit of sticking all kinds of things in there, from wherever we go. Mostly to save for later, or whatever. Then I forget it’s in there. I’m usually surprised what I find later on, stuck down in the dark corners of my purse. One time I even found a live spider…how it survived in there, I don’t know, but he was a little one, and came crawling out. Yikes! But, I like spiders, so I let him go on his way.

Anyway, here’s what I thought of about all these things in the picture. I could definitely make a stab at survival, if need be, well, maybe for an hour or so?

There are saltine crackers = won’t starve, and I can leave crumbs to mark my trail

There are croutons = same as the crackers, if I feel like being fancy. Also I can feed the birds. Maybe there will be a carrier pigeon I can tie a note to his leg, That way I can summon rescue.

There is a package of eye glasses cleaner things = given out free at a store. I could at least get a clear picture of where I was located.

There is a compass = yeah, I know, it’s a toy one given out at my grand-daughter’s pirate birthday party, but hey…a compass!

There is a fortune cookie = in case I really want to know what my future of being rescued is…or I can just eat it

There are pieces of candy = root-beer barrels, actually. Those would be for keeping me happy as I wait! 🙂

So, there you go. These items were in addition to the regular stuff I keep in there. 🙂

Do you keep odd items in your purse, pocket, or backpack? Would they help you out if you were stranded somewhere?

Check in tomorrow for another surprise random post! 🙂
