Happy Thanksgiving

Though today is America’s Thanksgiving holiday, the message is worldwide.

Life is full of Give and Take.

Give thanks and take nothing for granted.

And for goodness sakes, laugh!



Link of the Week – Be Paid for It, Yo

November 24, 2015

A few weeks ago, actor and cool guy, Wil Wheaton, wrote an article about the seven things he did to reboot his life. It’s pretty freakin’ awesome. And, the Huffington Post thought so, too. So much so, they wanted to repost it…for free. *snort*Depositphotos_21902879_l-2015

Today’s Link of the Week is his response—which is also pretty freakin’ awesome—to the online news aggregator’s suggestion that exposure outweighed compensation.


P.S. You are worth it.

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

Continuing on No-shave November, I give you today’s prompt.

My, oh my. Who is this guy? What is that expression? What or who has caused his reaction? What is he reaching for in his jacket? Is this the obvious—the undercover vice cop going for his gun? What if he is the clandestine pilot of a puddle jumper in trouble at a remote South American airport and he’s reaching for his license, passport, or weapon. Could he be reaching for the razor his retreating woman gave him, determined, if not a bit disagreeable, to not lose her over a little bit of facial hair? Maybe he just has an intense itch.

You know the deal. Caption the pic or tell me a tale.

Link Of The Week- Shut Up The Internet!

Fall and winter seems to be a great time to get a ton of words written- especially if you are participating in NaNo. Here are a few places to make the rest of your computer be quiet-






You’re welcome.

Hump Day Kick Start – No-shave November, Week 2 Edition

November 11, 2015

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.


Continuing on with a whiskered month, I give you today’s prompt.

Tell me about this pic. Note the expression on their faces. What’s going on? After being chased by drug-running  pirates, were they stranded on a tropical island after their catamaran sank and his shaving kit just washed up on shore?  Maybe they’re strangers thrown together by circumstance and the heat—either from the sun or their attraction—has finally gotten to them. Just look at his smirk. Let’s assume they are enemies and he’s smiling because he tricked her, daring her, provoking her—she gets to shave his face and, if she doesn’t slit his throat, he gets to do whatever he pleases with her, which would involve the shaving cream.

Did she convince him it was no longer November?

Caption the pic or tell me a tale. I’d love to hear from you.

Hump Day Kick Start – No-shave November, Week 1 Edition

November 4, 2015

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.



Is it no-shave November already? I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of this bewhiskered fad.  My own special guy gets in on the action by growing out his goatee. While he’s handsome, I’d much rather he trim. Still, there are many fellas who ooze some wicked primal masculinity with all that extra facial hair.

So, for today’s prompt we’ll start off mild. Who is he and what is he doing? Could he be wiping his mouth of the kiss from the woman he simultaneously loves and hates? Why? Is he refusing to speak to the enemies holding him captive? What if he is a prophet about to reveal dark days ahead? Maybe he is just hiding from the clippers.

What’s your take? Caption the pic or tell me a tale.
