This week's prompts provided by Wisewebwoman are:

Battery
Remain
Age
Bite
Produce
Workshop
Forest
Critic
 
NOT SO NEIGHBORLY by Granny Annie

Louise was always the critic.  She was a nosy neighbor especially when it came to my creations.  We had a big age difference and Louise, the busybody, believed it was her job to correct me on everything. She would hang over the back fence and give a review my entire life.

It was my day in the workshop. First I had to take a trip to the forest in order to find just what I needed to produce my invention. Every bug that could took a bite out of me that day. Still I was able to remain in the woods until I found what I needed.

I laughingly carried the bundle of limbs, sticks, leaves and moss back to the shop.  Louise viewed me with a questioning eye and made many derogatory comments. I simply smiled and went inside to get to work hammering, sawing, and spraying.Once my creation was almost complete, I inserted a battery and carried the large art piece outside. 

It was a perfect image of Big Foot but wore a sign that said "Louise" and had a little electronic voice box that repeated over and over, "I am a nosy neighbor.  I am a nosy neighbor."  Suddenly Louise disappeared behind the hedge.

MINE PIT

MINER'S STORY by Granny Annie

My first day in the mines at age 14,I was overwhelmed with enthusiasm. Mom stood with me outside our cottage that year. She knew the withdrawal I would feel leaving my comfortable life for the mines. She was sad as she handed me my lunch pail and watched me skip away with glee. She knew I would never return again with the same joy.

It was exciting to embrace my first paying job. It filled me with pride to represent my family of miners. Grandfather, father, uncles, brothers all worked in the mines. I had heard their stories and was sure I knew what to expect.

The mine owners should have faced prosecution for the danger they put us in. Pollution , rock slides, equipment failures and other dangers overcame everyone. Fourteen year old lads were handed the most distasteful duties. They would only advance to easier positions and higher pay at age sixteen, though there were never really any easy positions.

I knew that first day that the end of the world had come.

My wife told me to stop impersonating a flamingo. I had to put my foot down.

I went to buy some camo pants but couldn’t find any.

I was wondering why the frisbee kept getting bigger and bigger, but then it hit me.

 Don’t you hate it when someone answers their own questions? I do.

WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY - 05-11-2022

 

This month Wisewebwoman was going to provide the prompts on her blog - but she is on a blog break and has sent the prompts to Elephant's Child .  Essentially the prompts will be here for May.


This week's prompts were again provided by her and are:

    white

    painter

    courtesy

    recommendation

    neighbour

    disagree

    traffic

    ambition

    conference

    healthy

 And/or


 

TRUST AND OBEY by Granny Annie

The girls begged to rent the lighthouse for their senior graduation part. The Board of Directors took the request under advisement.

The landmark lighthouse had recently been used for a conference and lots of work had been done to make it presentable. The painter did an amazing job. The Board did not have an idea how many shades of white could be shown for selection. Several members could only disagree until they finally gave in as a courtesy to the others. That was the best thing to do. The lighthouse was painted and cleaned up and was beautiful. The conference had been carried off without a hitch and the Board enjoyed the rent that was paid. This would help keep the lighthouse in repair for other events.

Now the board of directors needed to decide if the girls should be allowed to rent the facility. Arguments ensued once more as one recommendation after another was made as to the pros and cons.

How much parking would be required for the traffic. A neighbor of one of the girls stated that the child did not seem to have much ambition and wondered if she could be trusted with the responsibility.Many knew her parents and believed they were trustworthy individuals. Much discussion was finally followed by the decision to rent to the girls and give them an outline of the rules and regulations.

Should anyone have been shocked the morning after the girl's graduation party? Graffiti was painted all over the outside "SENIORS 2022". The inside was in shambles and the kitchen facility was smoke covered. Soda cans as well as beer cans were strewn everywhere. The “trustworthy” parents who had signed the contract for the rental, wrote out a healthy check to the lighthouse fund.

Favorite Memory from 15 years ago.
GOLDEN DAY
My daughter called and left a voice message last night. It seems she was in the car with Hope (age 5) and they had an interesting conversation. The radio was on and the announcer was talking about Mother's Day.
Hope (in excited voice): "Oh he's talking about Golden Day!"
Chelle: "Golden Day? What is Golden Day?"
Hope: "That is the day you give your mother something gold. You're supposed to give Granny Annie something gold."
Chelle: "Where did you learn that?"
Hope: "From Granny Annie!"

  •  
  • My sweet Jerboa Jerad had jumbo ears.  He was the jewel of all my pets until one fateful day.  My jigsaw puzzle was successfully completed but frisky Jerad decided to jump in the middle and scatter the pieces everywhere. Thankfully my new jerrican was empty and I was able to scoop all the puzzle pieces into it. I could insure they would stay dry, then shake them out and use them again.   I glanced at my aquarium to see my jellyfish Jasmine who appeared to be laughing at this scene.

Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

A vulture carrying two dead raccoons boards an airplane. The stewardess looks at him and says,'I'm sorry, only one carrion allowed per passenger.'

 Two fish swim into a concrete wall.One turns to the other and says'Dam!'

HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS

Ron and I spent hundreds of dollars on guinea fowl.  We bought grown birds, keets and eggs.  We hatched the eggs under one of our broody hens and she would take care of them until they would blend with the rest of the guinea fowl.  They were the favorite food of eagles, coyotes, owls and all predators.  Little by little they would disappear. So, why attempt to raise them?  They alerted us to intruders, they killed snakes, they ate tons of ticks and other bugs.  These past few months I have been down to two guineas.  Last week one of the two disappeared and I hoped it would return and so did the partner.  It has not come home. Now the remaining one has not been quiet one single minute of the day crying for his partner. It is sad but it is also driving me CRAZY!!!  

 

Poor lonely guy.

A rubber-band pistol was confiscated from an algebra class, because it was a weapon of math disruption.

No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.

 Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.
