The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 19/2020

Here’s Linda’s prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “magnet.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
I have a selection of fridge magnets, these two are my favourites

The one on the left I bought for my sister, but didn’t think she’d see the joke so kept it for myself. The one on the right I bought for Hubby’s birthday as it was so ‘Maggie’.

Which brings me to something most of my readers already know, and that is how Maggie got her name.
When we collected her, we had no idea of a name, and when we took her to the vet the following day, still had no clue, so she was listed on the paperwork simply as ‘Puppy’.
Coming out of the surgery, she was tucked snugly into Hubby’s coat with just her nose sticking out of the top. Two women came up for a fuss and a ‘Aww’ and ‘Aahh,’ and two yards later, another young lady approached for her puppy fix. I think it took Hubby about ten minutes to walk 20 yards.
I said she was a people magnet, and the ears pricked up. Magnet became Maggie, the tail wagged, and that was it.

I found this image on google way back in 2014 and thought it was really funny.

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.
