Simply 6 Minutes—Welcome To The Challenge 3/02/21

Hysterical morning conversation that I think we all have, at least quietly in our heads! Thanks for the contribution!

Hold Up There Paco!

As I came down the stairs randomly chatting I stopped in my tracks as I reached the table. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I saw my dog Bruno seated at the table eyes so baggy I was surprised they were not touching the table.

Before I could take in what I was seeing I heard him say.Whoa! Do not say another word. Do I look like I have had my coffee yet? No, I have not. It is still dripping into the pot.

You can talk again once I have my coffee in a cup and I have had my first sip. Hmm, we better make that after my second sip.

Why? I have no idea what kinda of stupidity you are going to hit me with first thing in the morning. I…

6 Minute Poem – Retired and Adrift

A great poem many people can relate to I am sure! Thanks for the contribution!

Sillyfrog's Blog



Of all the things I’ve lost,

I find myself misplaced and tossed.

The days and dates are fluid now

Adrift in time and space, but how?

Retired days are rows of clones,

A daily curse of aching bones.

I’m much confused but understand

The heavens are not human planned.

Although I waver ’bout my place,

I’ll wear no doubts upon my face.

Jim’s contribution this week to Simply 6! It made me laugh out loud!

A Unique Title For Me

Wrinkles knew that he had no chance of ever catching that squirrel, but he couldn’t help from chasing it.  When it ran under the chain link fence, Wrinkles had a full head of steam going and he slammed into it, smashing up his face.  He did not need any more problems in his life, as last week he got flees and those buggers chewed the heck out of his hide.  He looked into the mirror and he thinks that he may now have pink eye, or should that be pink eyes, because both of his eyes were itching and they looked pink.  Wrinkles was aware that Friday was his birthday and he hoped to be back on the gravy train real soon.

If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Simply 6 Minutes

There is always something new to learn each week. Thanks for the contribution

The Sound of One Hand Typing

I never saw the movie If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium, the 1969 comedy starring Ian McShane and Suzanne Pleshette. IMDb says it’s “The humorous adventures of a group of American tourists taking an eighteen-day guided bus tour of nine European countries.” I remember movies from that era, such as The Magic Christian with Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr and The Party with Sellers and Claudine Longet, and they were crazy, and now, of course, I want to see them worse than anything and am wondering where I could find them. I know Turner Classic Movies has The Party and probably the others, but is there a single place that has them all?

The reason I want to see the oversexed crap from the ’60’s and ’70’s is that, compared to the oversexed crap Hollywood is producing these days, the older stuff is practically Cannes material. At least…

Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
