It was doggy class today and a bit of a disappointment.
Our trainer has had people let him down this week and only one person turned up on Wednesday (should have been 4), 2 people for the 9am class this morning which usually has at least 6, and there were only four of us instead of 7 for 11 am.
Maya had already met Micky the Shih Tzu and Jess, the black lab, but Bonnie, another Shih Tzu was new to her and the owner had previously stopped going to classes because she thought she’d done enough. Now she was having problems again so had returned for some more training.
We went through the socialising routine and walking with other dogs, but Maya soon got bored and almost went to sleep. Oh the embarrassment! Because we had a new kid on the block, this meant no playtime with her friends at the end and I think Maya realised something was missing.
Thanks Amy for picking up on my suggestion of memories for a ramble.
Here are the questions:
- What is your first good memory from your childhood? (If this is a trigger question for you, tell me how your day is and what the best thing is about today.)
- Name 3 things that you loved when you were just a youngster?
- What did you dislike, or even hate, when you were growing up?
- If you could go give your younger self one piece of advice, what would you tell them?
- What kind of celebrations did you enjoy when you were little, and do you still like those celebrations now that you are grown?
- Bonus Question: What commercial did you always wait for to come on television as a child? (If you didn’t like commercials or television, what event did you wait for to come about when you were a kid?“
Here are my answers:

Our word list:
north, order, translucent, beneath, hits, thunder, search, freeze, journey, spellbinding power, sacred
Beneath the translucent haze of the moon, thunder threatens from the north.
In order to complete this sacred journey in search of such spellbinding power, the Big Freeze hits hard, and it is best to be prepared.
My Mum would have been 100 years old today. It’s hard to believe it’s four years ago since she passed away, and 26 for my Dad.
I wonder what they would make of the current state of affairs if they were still with us.
My Mum would probably be confused by it all and Dad angry at the politicians for letting it get this bad. In many respects, I am glad they are in a better place, young, whole, and have no worries about finances or health issues.
My Dad would have loved Maya. Continue reading
Jim Adams is our host and this week’s theme is songs that mention Money, Gold, Silver, Rich as suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II.
Money, or the lack of it, is on people’s minds as inflation, fuel, energy, food and the cost of living is biting well into everyone’s pockets. They say money is the route of all evil, and for TPTB dishing out policies and platitudes, they are the most evil of all as they have no concept of ‘the real world’ and how people struggle to live day to day.
My choice today is Dire Straits, Money for Nothing.
Welcome to my daily Three Things Challenge.
Below are three words that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
Remember to tag your responses with 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC and you can also add my logo if you wish. I’m using a variety this year so I hope you like them.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. While you’re there, why not check out some of the other contributions too.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.00 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words today are:
For Mum and Dad (22nd May 2022)
A candle burns, flickering gaily,
Memories whisper in my mind,
Two souls united, never again parted,
Having left their Earth Life behind.
The topper hearts spin, dancing lights on the ceiling,
Gentle music is heard in my head
Breaking the silence of a new day dawning,
As I lay alone in my bed.
Life is so precious, we take it for granted
Then one day, it’s suddenly gone,
Melancholy lingers, smiles and the laughter
Remembering when happiness shone.
Wisps of smoke raise their gift to the heavens,
Each one a kiss from me to them,
Always together, forever in my heart
Until the day we shall meet again.
Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 21 May 2022!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, Sarah has reached into her mystery bag and pulled out a Parallelogram de Crystalline. The topic is up to you!
You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is Parallelogram de Crystalline?
Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…
Parallelogram de Crystalline
Parallelogram de Crystalline is a poetry form created by Karan Naidu. This form consists of 4 verses of 3 lines each. The syllable count for each stanza is 3, 6, 9.
This is a first for me and I thought I’d try something new.
I don’t know if it works or not, but this is normal practice these days!
Don’t push me,
I’m tired and need my sleep:
Youth was left behind eons ago.
I don’t want to get up!
The land of dreams and peace is calling.
Please shove off!
Go back to bed and snooze,
Give me a break and leave me to doze.
Thanks to Ritu’s SoCS post for inspiration.
