Prompt for the Day: “Tourist”



The homebodies from the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to create works of art based in the word “Tourist” today.

Loved Playing Tourist

While I lived in Lombard (Chicago suburb) for 18 months and then when we moved to Colorado.  There were so many exciting places to explore.  Chicago offers many great museums and wonderful public transportation via the train systems.  Colorado lacked transportation services, but made up for it with the beautiful mountain scenery!

Used a wheelchair only when necessary while we lived in both places.  Glad I didn’t become confined to a wheelchair permanently until after we moved away from both places.  Here in MN, they have great transportation for the handicapped via a service known as Metro Mobility.  That service has a specially designed bus / van? that picks you up at the door you specify and delivers you to the front door of your designation.  If you request it, they return to take you back home after you finish your outing.

If you would like to contact me personally, all you have to do is leave the email address you would like me to respond to along with your comment.

Look forward to your comments and or suggestions!  This home body likes to stay in our safe handicap accessible home near my great neighbors!  Would like it even better if it was winter, but at least we have decent air conditioning.  Spring, Summer, and Fall tend to be too warm for my health!

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Daily prompt from June 27, 2015: “Deprive”

The sadists from the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to design our creations of various forms of art centering on the word “Deprive“.

Do Not Deprive Any Creature Basic Necessities of Life

To do so would be giving them a death sentence!  If you have a pet, it needs to have water available at all times.  Feeding the animal should happen at least once a day (check with your veterinarian for better instructions).  Human family members deserve the same consideration as your furry friends are given!

Family members need more than food and water.  They need social contact in the form of conversations.  Getting exercise out doors together is good for the family as a whole.  Whether it be going for a walk or bike ride, you need to get the natural vitamin ‘D’ that the sun (when it is shining) provides!  If it starts raining, it is just water after all.  Maybe kicking a ball around the yard or a park together would be fun for you guys, who knows?

Try to help all life in your surroundings the best that you can!  The life you end up encouraging to flourish might save you personally one day, you never know!

Prompt for the Day: “Fence”

Think the people of the Daily Post division of Word Press like the safety of being enclosed by a the prompt for the day which happens to be the word “Fence“.

Took Fencing in College for a Semester

Had absolutely nothing to do with fences.  We just got to attack each other with a device called an epee or foil (not aluminium foil).  Was a lot of fun!

Putting up fencing on the farm requires a lot of work, but is necessary to keep the cattle on our property.  Imagine over a ton of walking, mooing, animal wandering around unrestricted in your front yard!  You can take care of cleaning up the damage they cause.  The smallest danger is if the decide to unload a pile of manure on your property.   (Free fertilizer is nothing to laugh at!)  If they decide your tree is a good scratching post for the itch they have on their right shoulder, it might get uprooted!  The animal may also take a shining to your vehicle.  Depending on the vehicle’s weight it might get accidentally flipped over by their amorous attempt!

Have to be careful about what you fence in and out of your lives.  Fences around your property can make your neighbors afraid to approach you at all.  Not having a fence leaves you open to home invasions.  It is one of those “darned if you do” and “darned if you don’t” things!

Prompt for the Day: “Prophecy”

The people who think they have the gift of foresight at the Daily Post group of Word Press decided to set our writing engines on fire to use the word “Prophecy” to base our daily works of art on.

Don’t Waste Your Time Spouting Garbage at Me

I generally do not believe in false prophets or the lies they spit out to innocent people in the name of prophecy or fortune telling.  Save your breath and tell someone that is naive enough to listen!  Please do not harass an innocent elderly person with images of fortune or grandeur.  They probably worked hard accumulating what they have saved in life!  What they need is a decent friend to converse with, not a slimy salesman who would try pawning off unneeded trash.

Got a kick out of the characters in the animated Disney classic “Robin Hood” when they were trying to rob prince John by posing as fortune tellers.  That is about the only use I have for fortune tellers, a good laugh at their expense!

If we are on the subject of false prophecies, look at most weather forecasts today.  Even worse are the election polling processes her in the United States of America, we have become the laughing stock of the world over the childishness of the candidates!

Prompt for the Day: “Open”

The people with forceful minds at the Daily Post division of Word Press want all options available for us artists to create art based on today’s prompt of “Open“.

Childhood Stories

The story “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” comes to mind from the misheard command of “Open Sesame”.

You might also want to look at the following link to the Book of a Thousand and One Nights.

Real Life

Barking out the command of “Open” gets you nowhere.  There are devices out there that will actually cause a door to open, but they tend to be ways out of the price range for normal people today.  If you continue to talk to inanimate objects, you may end up in a mental institution somewhere if your are lucky along the line!

Doubt any magically trained creature will appear to open doors for you.  There are specially trained dogs who help the handicapped survive by opening doors, leading the visually impaired, picking up dropped items for the person if necessary.  It all depends on th animal’s actual training.

Am unable to get the contact form to give you the ability to get in contact with me personally on this site.  Simply leave an email giving your email address along with your personal message at hallenterprises132@gmail.com.  Look forward to hearing your comments!

Prompt for June 18th 2016: “Perfection”

Being fellow protectionists like myself, the people at the Daily Post division of Word Press chose a prompt for June 18th 2016 of “Perfection” to make sure we made our best efforts in our daily creations of various forms of art.

Been a Perfectionist All My Life

Started reading at the wise old age of 3 years old.  My mom figured this out when I would object when she was trying to read to me as I went to bed at night and she would try cutting the story short.  I could see there was still many more words on the book she was trying to skip over!  Knew all my Doctor Suess books by memory.  You know the books “One Fish, Two Fish…”, Green Eggs and Ham, …  Then Christmas time rolled in with the classic “Twas the Night Before Christmas” book, my mom tried cutting that story short, too.  So I would sit up in bed and finish the story for her word for word!  Talk about a desire for perfection at a young age.

Then I started kindergarten at age 4.  My poor teacher, I was a stubborn handful who expected every thing to work as planned.  We were doing some speed reading drills with a few of my classmates who also already knew how to read.  She held up the card that had “ship” written on it.  Not being familiar with ships, but very familiar with the practice of hauling “shit” on our farm, I yelled out “shit” quite confidently!  Had to spend recess in side as punishment.  Missed getting to climb the monkey bars with my friends.  Was not too happy about the development.

The teacher’s aide there happened to be my aunt who ran home and told everyone that I had misbehaved in school that day.  So the guys on the farm had to change the way they described their habits to hauling manure instead of hauling shit!  Considering I ended up having two younger brothers come into my life, was a good change to have made!

Prompt for the Day: “Empty”

The soul less people at the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to center our artistic talents on the word “Empty”.

Most Rarely Feel Empty

They may lose their ways to commonly searching for the quick easy answers to life.  Feeling empty to me means having completely given up on God!  Doesn’t the sun come out to some extent each day?  Don’t at least the weeds grow in your yard?  From the musical “Annie” there was a song “The Sun will come out tomorrow

Even during the worst periods of my life, the sun has came out eventually.  Just have to have the patience to endure your pain and other problems until you see the light come out from the darkness!

Suicide is too permanent of a decision to make.  Avoid the temptation!  More people than you know may be depending on your survival.  Contact a friend at least before you make the life altering decision!

The stars come out each and every night, even if the clouds are blocking them from your sight.  The moon has never fallen to the Earth in the history of mankind.  Face it, the sun is there!

Prompt for the Day: “Companion”

The apparently extroverted people at the Daily Post division of Word Press seem to think everyone needs a partner in crime, so they chose the word “Companion” for us to focus today’s creation of various forms of artistry.

Main Companion is my Husband

He is there beside me through all the horrors in my life.  He goes with me for all important medical appointments.  He even takes me to the most dreaded place of all, the hospital I go to to have my M.R.I.s taken.  Because I have to have general anaesthesia administered to be able to go through the horrible machine.

My husband is also responsible for creating my latest addiction: riding motorcycles!  We have a 2007 Honda Goldwing with a trailer that can pull my wheelchair along with us for the ride.  This enables us to get off the bike safely and stretch our legs out when needed!  Face it, everyone needs to make a call of nature periodically!  Have to find a handicap accessible rest room for my use.  Enjoy drinking water too much for my bladder’s own good.

Animal Tag-Alongs

Had two faithful cats we adopted years ago.  I picked out the one I wanted, he took the animal’s brother to live with us.  Tennyson, (my black kitten) survived travelling through many states with us.  The longest stretch of residency occurred when we lived in Colorado.  The two brother’s played on the cat tower we had purchased for them unendingly!  They used to fight over who go the top of the tower when we first got it, but then my cat discovered the hiding place near the bottom.  He used to curl up inside and sleep undisturbed until his brother caught on to where he was.  Shortly after moving in we added a humming bird feeder to the back yard.  That distracted his brother to no end!  Now my cat could take a decent nap when needed!

His cat died a few years before mine passed on.  So mine had to survive all alone when we moved to Minnesota.  The place we moved to at first was a hideous apartment complex.  My cat only suffered through two gruelling years there before he passed away.  My husband still sees both animals even though neither have ever been at our house where we now live.  I only see mine checking in on me when I am not feeling well.

We adopted a single gray kitten the year after mine passed away.  This animal is nothing like our other animals were.  I think he may have a learning disability!  He is that hard to get to understand simple concepts, like DO NOT get under my wheelchair tires.  You would think getting his tail run over would teach him.

Prompt for the Day: “Summer”

The obvious thinking people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Summer” for us to base our artristic works for the first meteorological day of summer in the U.S.A..

Music came to Mind First

First song that popped in my head comes from a favourite show of mine Grease “Summer Nights“.  There are many more popular summer songs.  “Summertime” by Billy Stewart back in 1966.  “Cruel Summer” by Bananarama in 1983.  “Summertime Blues” by Eddie Cochran back in 1958.  The “Summer Song” featuring Chad & Jeremy in 1964.  “Summer Breeze” from Seals and Crofts from 1972.  Who can forget Nat King Cole’s “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer” in 1963?

Summer” by War was released in 1976.  Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” was released in 1984.  “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams in 1985 is a personal favourite of mine.  After that came Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” in 1984.  Then came the “Endless Summer Nights” by Richard Marx in 1988.  “Summer Girls” came out 1999 by LFO.

More recently, there is “Summer Love” by Justin Timberlake in 2007.

Personal Thoughts on Summer

I hate it!  The constant heat saps my energy down to nothing.  Wake up sweating even though the house is completely air conditioned.  With out the air conditioning, I would be experiencing continuous grand mal seizures that my medical staff are at a loss to reproduce or fully explain!  Apparently, the multiple sclerosis that I suffer from is causing it somehow. Their only suggestion is to remain inside as much as I can.

How am I supposed to get out if for nothing else than to arrive at their facilities for my scheduled appointments?  Have to go outside to check on the tomatoes my husband and I planted in May.

Prompt for the Day: “Aimless”

The people who appear to be without goals from the Daily Post division of Word Press want us to take time from our busy lives to create works of art centered on the word “Aimless“.

My Life Has An Aim

I type (write) for my personal entertainment and to help keep my vocabulary sharp!  Prefer to focus on my health problems, the weak \ elderly people, and innocent animals.  Get my topics from the people at Word Press when I start typing each morning.  Where it leads is always a mystery to both me and the rest of the world.

I aim to try and help other people survive in this difficult times here in America.  Too much unemployment or underemployment and crime happening all around us each day.  People are unhappy wherever I go.  I am happy my husband is successfully employed (even if I hate the company he works for – it is fully legal, I just do NOT like the business).

I can not find employment due to my health.  Am a network engineer by trade.  Was successful in both the Chicago-metro area in IL and the Denver area in CO working there.  No company position that I am trained for is willing to hire a disabled person (wheelchair will not fit into most spaces that hold the machines I work on to control routing and wiring).
