A Storm's A-Brewing



Junior: "Those clouds are getting dark."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, and the wind's bound to pick up."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior:  "Yep, and just look at the leaves on those trees inside out. It's bound to rain soon."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, I think we ought to get the family down to the storm cellar."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, cause storm winds can blow really strong and turn into twisters."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "And the rain could cause a flood."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, and if we don't do something soon that wind and rain will pulverize the house and barn on and on until little's left of them,"

Daddy: "Yeah, wreck on and on and on, I guess."


The prompt from the folks at Studio30+ this week was reckon/guess. And I reckon I pass the test. Click on the link to see how others treated the prompt. If you don't you're just guessing.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
