What I Need: Compilation 07/17/2022

On a luminous night three days from now
The spirits will come, they might even growl
are beyond doubt , I’m certain to say
things that I wish for, I hum and I pray
But shortages happen, discounts are lost
I’m glum without coupons, how much things cost
Like birds on a mission in regional fields
Without worms a-squirming, dirt without yields
My heart is so willowy, hope’s trickling away
So i’ll drag my bones out on some other day.
I’ll run to the supermarket open til nine
And buy what I need and then I’ll be fine.

So, onto P and this week’s prompts.

Place – playground
Emotion – passion
Adjective – perky
Verb – pacify
My animal – puffin

I’m not sure if I am supposed to but I always pick my own words…So here they are…

Place – Palace
Emotion – pissed
Adjective – pitiful
Verb – placate
My animal – Porcupine

The Poopy Porcupine

Little Mr. Porcupine was out on his first date
He wanted to get flowers but he thought that he’d be late
He drove up to the palace to find his pretty lass
But he looked somewhat pitiful, with poo all on his ass
The lady he had picked up tried to placate this young lad
But he was super pissed by then, the date was going bad.
He left her by the washroom while he cleaned up the bad mess
And when the date was over she said she’d liked him none the less.

Sunday Poser #89

Sadje is the host of Sunday Poser https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2022/07/17/sunday-poser-89/

This week (her) question is;

What makes you want to comment on a post?

I comment on many posts that I see and I guess there are a few different reasons.

  1. I like to acknowledge those people who I feel I have formed a relationship with through blogging. I like to know that people are looking at what I post and I want others to know that I am interested in what they post.
  2. I comment on really good writing. I don’t tell everyone that their writing is really good if I don’t really think it is. That is NOT to say that if I don’t say its good then I don’t think its good…I cannot read every post that comes my way as I do have obligations in my life and cannot sit on my computer all day.
  3. I comment on things that I relate to. I have found that with my grief, for example, it feels better to know that there is either someone that knows what it feels like or that there is someone who might actually give a shit that I am feeling sad. The same goes with the funny stuff or the good things that happen in my life.
  4. I will not comment on a post that uses especially vulgar language or who writes out-right offensive material. This is not a place to put people down or make people feel bad. It is not a place to bully other people. I have had the unfortunate experience of having someone “yell” at me because I commented “wrong” on their post. There was one post a long time ago that was a story written for a prompt. It was a lot of dialogue but every word in the back-and-forth conversation was a swear (f this, f that). I get it. I have used these words before, but it went over the top. It went to the point that I didn’t like the characters because of the way they spoke.
  5. I comment on the posts that I believe someone put a lot of effort in. Sometimes the writing may not be to my liking but I can tell that it is good writing.

Song Lyric Sunday: Selling More Music

Jim (and Fandango as a fill-in) host Song Lyric Sunday

This week the theme is songs that hit the top of the charts. 

This is really hard! I have googled several different lists and there are so many songs that are just so good! I don’t know what to choose! Here are just a few that I found that I love, but I’m sure there are many more. I mean, genre, year, group vs. individual, remakes….How do you really decide?

Travis Tritt – It’s A Great Day To Be Alive (Down The Road I Go)

After my first husband passed away I listened to this every day on my way to work and every day on my way home.

Maroon 5 – Memories

This came out right around the time I lost my son.

Michael Jackson – You are not alone

For obvious reasons, this song has so much meaning to me…Very emotionally connected.

I love the nightlife – Alicia Bridges

Not technically a Top of the Hits, but one of my personal faves….

“Bohemian Rhapsody” – Queen

Eagles – Hotel California
