The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS April 20/19

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rib.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “rib”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!
Thanks Linda (click here for more details)

Rib. Now that’s an interesting one.
We all have a rib cage to protect our heart and lungs, and probably in the days of Fred Flintstone et al, a deceased dinosaur’s rib cage was used as a xylophone.

Spare ribs now, bar-be-cue in fact, dripping with honey glaze and garlic.
Blimey, those were the days when our chinese takeout consisted of those, sweet and sour chicken balls, chicken fried rice, prawn crackers, and crispy seaweed if they had it. Sometimes, even a spring roll or two would find their way into our order, and we would scoff the lot! Just the thought of all that makes me bloat, but those ribs, oh yeah, but neither of us could eat them now.

Then of course there’s ribbing someone for doing something wrong with amusing results, or a dig in the ribs to get someone’s attention.

A RIB is also a boat, a rigid inflatable boat, which I am pleased to say was not of the ilk we lived on for three years, neither did we need rescuing in one.

Mum used to knit a lot, and the cuffs and waistband were usually rib stitch. I didn’t much like knitting as it didn’t grow very fast, but I have knitted Hubby two jumpers in the past, neither of which are with us now.
Dad and I used to play cRIBbage every night and drive Mum nuts with our fifteen two, fifteen four, two for a pair etc whilst she was trying to count her stitches on said knitting.
If there were any babies due in the family or friends, she would be knitting cute little matinee sets trimmed with pretty RIBbon.

Yep, lots to rib about, and these are just a few.

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.

    Do you buy it that you are part of Adam’s rib? A bit of a put-down, that.
