100 Word Wednesday: Week 53

It would appear I’m not the only one who missed this on Wednesday as it didn’t come up in my reader or emails at all.

It was a daunting task, but one which had to be done.
Of course it would have helped if more volunteers had turned up, but there you go.
People always had something better to do, somewhere else to be.
In eleven months, the big ships would be coming this way, and deeper channels had to be dug to accommodate their bulk.
She knew to do it alone was like trying to empty a lake with a teaspoon, so she roped in the local radio and TV crews.
Nothing like free publicity for any watching contracting companies wishing to join in.

About pensitivity101

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.

    Interesting idea, but do we want to change the beauty of the view into a deep water harbour?
