Rustic Simplicity


I was excited to take part in this prompt (almost a day late), so I scanned through my images thinking I would find something rustic, like a tree in the woods. I saw the folder with scanned family photographs and found this one of my great great grandfather, and thought it would be so cool for the prompt! Is that rustic or what? And, oh, the simple lives they must have led… From Laboratory to Consumer!

About a month ago I started digging around the internet to work on a family tree, but I’ve barely scratched the surface so far. I think I made it to my great great grandparents on my mother’s side of the family (the Scots-Irish side), so I have a long way to go with her family and then it’s on to my Dads side (his grandfather pictured above).

Talk about a writing prompt; wouldn’t it be fun to write a story based on what you can learn through your family’s history? Hmmm. That’s something to think about. Anyway…

I just thought this would be a fun image to share.


RDP Thursday: Rustic Simplicity

Humor, Word Challenges

Say what?

The dictionary is my friend,

I’m never without meaning.

The thesaurus is a wizard,

Turns “picking” into “gleaning.”

And when I’m feeling feisty,

Schmutzwortsuche’s how I play it.

I’m never at a loss for words,

I just don’t know how to say it.

The 70’s to Today

A Life in Rap


Gallivanting, and

Bar hopping.

Living it up, and 

Hotel bopping.

Race with the Joneses,

Some name dropping.

A 401K, and

Wife swapping?

Dieting fads, and

Pill popping.

Sucking it up, with

Sugar free topping.

Trade bra for a mask, 

Boobs flopping.

Zoom meditation, and

Online shopping.
