Daily Prompts- Just as I suspected

It is just as I suspected

Heaps of plastic floating in oceans

Pollution abounds and resources misused

No thoughts of consequences, reckless deeds

Impetuous actions of humans leading to trouble

If all this trash was indoors, in your own homes

You would think twice about creating such a mess

Can you catch a glimpse of the future we are ushering in?

It would be unlike anything you have seen yet

Unless we change our habits of usage,

This is a disaster just waiting to happen

Are you worried yet?

If not you should be!

In response to the following prompts;




Plastic, Indoors, Unlike

The Sunday Whirl- Wordle #463 & Sunday Writing Prompt “Fortune Teller”

B Warren is the host of The Sunday Whirl


She stepped in the dark room, keeping her panic at bay. She wanted to be here, to ask the question troubling her mind, yet she dreaded the answer. But might as well do it as she was here now! Taking a deep breath she held out her hand and gave the money to the fortune teller.

This crystal holds all the answers to your future”, said the man in the crazy hat as he took hold of Mandy’s hand.

“I see a cloud on the horizon”, he said in a deep voice. The future is challenging and demands sacrifices from you “

“What sort of sacrifice“, she asked in a low voice.

“You will have to do as I bid you so that I may help you overcome this curse,” the man said as he tried to steal a kiss.

Mandy pushed him back and shouted loudly, you creep! Get away from me. The crystal ball crashed to the floor and broke into many fragments. There was a strange perfume in the air and Mandy fainted as she inhaled it. The fortune-teller quickly moved to bind her hand and feet when a man entered the room.

“This is the last time that you’ve played your game, Marcus! I am arresting you for fraud and kidnapping. This young lady had agreed to expose you and was working for us

So be aware dear readers, most of the fortune-tellers are opportunists trying to hoax us!


Fortune Teller

42 Words- Dames

Deb Whitman is the host of 42 Words


Now this is one broad theme, you can go in so many directions its isn’t funny but for those who might be perplexed the official definition of a dame is as follows:

1. The official title of a female member of the Order of the British Empire, equivalent to that of a knight.

2. The official title of the wife of a knight or baronet.

3. A form of address to any woman of rank or authority.

4. A matronly woman of advanced age; matron.

5. A term used to refer to a woman:Some dame cut me off and almost caused an accident.

6. Ecclesiastical. a title of a nun in certain orders.

7. A mistress of a dame-school.


Hey, do I look old to you?

Don’t call me ma’am or dame!

I maybe matronly and a bit on the shady side of fifty but I strongly object to the title you’ve conferred on me.

And you’re no spring chicken yourself!

5 July 1985 -35 Years and counting

I have been married for 35 years, today.

More than half of my life!

It’s been quite a ride, I went from a naive 23-year-old to a 58-year-old grandmother of three.

Married life means a lot of adjustments and compromises. If a person thinks that by getting married they are going to get their happily ever after, they are in for a disappointment.

Marriage is a lot of hard work and it takes years to establish a family. I am lucky that I found a wonderful man and it was not that difficult to make it work.

But two people, however similar they may be, are still two different personalities. And to find harmony and sameness within a relationship takes a lot of give and take.

My journey was not very easy but love, understanding, and a will to make it work, made things manageable. I am today so proud of my three children who all are doing well in their own lives. And of course my three lovely grandchildren too.

Here’s to many more years of happy married life!

The adventure continues 💖
