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.

WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY (on Saturday) - 04-20-2022

 This week’s prompts are provided by

messymimi's meanderings







and/or the following “words in danger of lack of use”

oppugned (opposed or called into question)

autodidact (self-taught)

non-fungible (non-interchangeable, not easy to exchange)

widdershins (counterclockwise or going to the left, in an unlucky or contrary manner)

TRUST CONCERNS by Granny Annie

Henry was an autodidact steward. He learned his skills from books and from his imagination. This caused many to doubt his mechanical inventions. Most of his completed types of transportation seemed as if they were widdershins. Still Henry kept moving forward on a large, strict scale regardless of being oppugned. His inventions, once sold, were non-fungible. The only lively argument for a total refund came from a nun . She experienced a breakdown of Henry's skipping machine on the trail. This caused Sister Maria to miss an important meeting with her Bishop.

         A termite walked into a bar and asked where was

If God is watching us, the least we can do is be entertaining.

LIFTING SPIRITS by Grannie Annie

Ralph opened the box and knew this was CRAZINESS. Who would ever think you could buy a CHARIOT model kit for CONSTRUCTION? He had DEPRESSION and thought this might perk him up. He had worked many model kits as a child and those were always for cars or boats. Now he might be able to FUEL his COMPASSION with a replica of the Ben Hur Chariot.

He went outside his HOUSE and sat by the FOUNTAIN. It SEEMED like a good place to go over the INSTRUCTIONS. Ralph could not believe how easy this assembly appeared to be. He gathered all his fortitude and went back inside. He spent many days alone putting together the unusual model . It was delightful to experience very little OBSTRUCTION. Ralph then invited his family to view the PRESENTATION of his hard work. Their applause lifted his spirits and he immediately went looking for another new model kit.
