Linda’s challenge for the JusJoJan and SoCS for today is as follows:
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “ow.” Find a word that contains “ow” or use it as a word in your post. Have fun!
Years ago, Hubby and I would play a little game called the ‘Ow’ factor. It was a means of making light of the various degrees of pain he is always in and we tried to be as inventive as possible.
‘Ow much is that doggie in the window’ was the first come to mind.
‘Ow do you do what you do to me’ soon followed together with these:
Twenty four ‘ow-ers from Tulsa.
‘Ow can I be sure? (David Cassidy)
‘Ow’ (Kate Bush)
anything by David ‘Owie and a couple of hymns:
‘Ow great thou art, and
I ‘ow to thee my country.
Wracking our brains for titles took the edge off his pain for a while anyway.
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!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
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.

Distraction is a good way to do it.
I am sorry about your husband’s pain, Di. This game does bring a smile to my face.
Thanks Roberta. It’s a permanent thing, and nothing can be done but he copes very well. Hope 2020 is a good year for you.
