100 words aboutfreedom


France in tears flowing like the River Seine lost freedom

Realities hit throwing the hardest punch where it hurts in the heart of freedom

Eyes not seeing the atrocities on their way cunningly planned to destroy their freedom

Eiffel Tower standing tall observing from above the carnage bellow stealing the countries freedom

Despair landing with a thud in buildings and roads again denying freedom

Over the time and future wounds will heal buildings be  repaired but no healing for loss of freedom

Mourning replacing laughter freedom gone like a loved one murdered slain in the name of faith. Freedom

100 word challenge 162

I have not taken part in this challenge for a very long time, I am glad to be back to spending time on the PC much easier since I got a lap top.
The challenge is to use the words in bold with an additional 100 words to entertain others

… As I put the decorations away I realised with awful foreboding that great aunt Ethel's present had not been posted .This might not mean much to you the reader but trust me its a biggie you see I had organised as a surprise for dear Aunt to go on a world cruise for 10 weeks, that would give us plenty of time to gut her house and make it warm and comfortable
The cruise ship leaves in18 hours I am ten hours away by car the cruise is 5 hours from Ethel I need to bust a groove sorry will finish this challenge later bye.

The new year has arrived

to Anyone who happens to pass by would like to say a belated happy new year 

At the start of the new year it is traditional to make resolutions to change ,improve or enjoy activities
in the new year .
for me I have not made a resolution as such , well i suppose I have really ok here goes:
i have left and deleted Face book yes its true and to be honest I have not missed it .
I have instead realised how much of my time I wasted on there.
My second change is a follow on from Christmas if you are a close friend you may have noticed the absence of a Christmas card from our home, if not well just goes to prove that on the whole they are a waste of time and money .
Please do not think that I don't appreciate cards trailing on my wall ,I like them but unless they have a news letter in or a personal note then they are no more than a production line of signing,addressing ,stamping and posting in the hope that they will reach their recipient by Christmas eve.
This year I was going to join the millions who partake in this lovely practise I even purchased the stamps ready as well as some lovely dove ards that were supporting my orthopaedic hospital trouble started when i put them somewhere safe .

Anyway I have decided to Blog more, read more books , setting a target of 52 this year  and finally write letters to friends again I am setting a target of 52 letters or emails for those overseas (cost of postage).
So far this year I have had my hair lightened 
 I have also sent my first email , today's task is to make a header with photos and contact details .
so for now I am over and Out next time i contribute to my blog I will be whole year older .
