OctPoWriMo2019 Day 13 — The Sycamores of Sweet Street

Coloring Club Plus (minus coloring) 10/12/19

Yesterday afternoon, I was unexpectedly called away to help out friends and then ended up spending the night out of town.  Got back home around 11 a.m. this morning.  Mlady was peering around the corner at the end of the hall to make sure it was me.  Her fur was all puffed out when she… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus (minus coloring) 10/12/19

OctPoWriMo2019 Day 12 — black — Prince Whom Darkness Prints

  Prince Whom Darkness Prints Globe that twists and swirls the depths of globe Needle thrusts at heaven – dark's needle. Wheedle built from Hell's dev'lish wheedle Trove of darkness cached as treasure trove Wasted hungry fish, starved, thin-waisted Needs to consume light of life; black needs Freed shadow bites eats bleeds, evil freed Tastes… Continue reading OctPoWriMo2019 Day 12 — black — Prince Whom Darkness Prints

Book Review — Herja, Devastation, by Cage Dunn and Frank Prem

Imagine,… Continue reading Book Review — Herja, Devastation, by Cage Dunn and Frank Prem

Coloring Club Plus — 10/11/19 — Aerosmith’s Permanent Vacation

I listened to this last night and was surprised by two things: how many bad songs are on it and how many good songs are on it. It isn't an album I listen to much. This morning I was trying to decide which “non-hit” to highlight from it and rejected each one for various reasons,… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 10/11/19 — Aerosmith’s Permanent Vacation
