Your three things today are:

RECORD
HANG
THREAD

The Record

When I went to the park 

I saw in a tree 

A record was spinning 

It wasn’t from me 

I found that a person 

Tried to hang it up high 

Using a thing thread 

Like a fly in the sky 

The round disc was there 

To reflect all the sun 

I think that it’s pretty 

And happy it’s done.

Truthful Tuesday: September 29th, 2020

For: https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/09/29/truthful-tuesday-september-29th-2020/

What are your thoughts on trick-or-treating this year? Should Halloween be “canceled”, or should it be allowed to go on as normal.

I have never been a big Halloween fan. I remember loving to dress up as a kid but I don’t recall liking walking all over the place for candy. Now, as an adult I think the holiday is ridiculous because of what it has become. When my kids were little I loved to see them dressed up and I loved that they loved Halloween, but again, I was not a fan.

That being said, I think that Halloween is only about candy. Costumes have become “whatever you can pull together”, except those for little kids. All costumes are way too expensive, which is why people make their own costumes. I’m not saying homemade costumes are bad, my mom made all of mine. I’m just saying that rolling up your jeans and putting on a flannel shirt does not make one a farmer.

I think trick-or-treating would be fine, people are wearing masks anyhow!

I think kids should just stay home, though, have parents spend a ton less on candy and costumes, and spend time as a family. Play a game, bob for apples…

Sedition: Your Daily Word Prompt

YDWP: https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2020/09/24/your-daily-word-prompt-sedition-ydwordprompt-September-24-2020/

Sedition: conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

USA Condition

In our condition 

The idea of sedition 

Leaves us in a position 

To think that revolution 

Is a solution 

To fight this disintegration 

Of the civilization 

Of an American institution 

Based on the frustration 

And realization 

That our population 

Is about to malfunction!

Unpresidented: FOWC with Fandango

For all of the international followers, I wonder what the world is thinking.

Donald Trump needs to be Un-Presidented and soon!!!!

Does the world know that most Americans do not agree with Trump?

Does the world know that much of America has risen above racial injustice more than is depicted in our news?

Does the world know that Americans are in a state of frustration and fear now that we may fall under a dictatorship? Is that what it is?

Does the world know and remember that we are a melting pot, a place for all people to live freely?

These words….

…. are not for America!

Your three things today are:

MONEY
PRESSURE
TICKET

Ticket

Back at the ranch 

Under the stars 

The pressure was on 

To head straight to the bars 

No money to spare 

So, we knew to drink light 

A ticket to paradise 

Not far from sight.

Simply 6 Minutes—Welcome To The Challenge: 9/22/2020

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!
