The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 16/17

Thanks Linda

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “vol.” Find a word with “vol” in it, and use it in your post. Have fun!

Way back in 1985 I invited my Mum and Dad up for Sunday lunch, unbeknown to them that I was in fact doing a buffet for 30 or so people to celebrate their 35th Wedding Anniversary.
I was baking and freezing for weeks, but made a point of a vast volume of prawn
vol-au-vents as my Mum was rather partial to them.

I’d baked a special fruit cake which my boss had iced for me, topping it with red sugar craft carnations as these were the flowers Dad always gave her on their anniversary.
It was a wonderful day, the only time I have known my Dad at a loss for words.

Lovely memories.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
