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!

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.

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 the Day: “Childhood”

The kid minded people at the Daily Post group of Word Press want us to focus our various artistic creations for today on the word “Childhood“.

Doubt I was ever Truly a Child

Was reading alone by myself at the age of three.  Started kindergarten at the wise old age of four years old.  Was an afternoon class with people in the tiny location of Lenzburg, IL.  My mother made put on a dress for my first day at school. She personally drove me there the first time.  Took the bus home where my mom and dog waited for me at the end of the lane.  The bus driver told my mom not to worry, he would make sure I was able to get myself off the bus and safely cross the road each day.  Became good friends with the driver over the next few years.  Since the lane ended on a major highway, mom was still a little nervous at first.  Made friends at school who would be friends for the next two years at least.

The school closed down completely after my first grade year was complete.  Had to take the school bus (same driver) to the big town of Marissa for second grade on up.  (Town population back then was only about 2,436.)  In the bigger school we were separated into different class rooms.  Only saw my friends during the short recess periods.  As the year went on, some of my friends stopped being my friends, since they had more people to interact with.  I made a few new friends as well.

Upon starting the fourth grade year I was subjected to a series of tests by a strange woman.  (I.Q. tests apparently.)  They stuck me in a gifted program at school.  Was a lot of fun.  Got to read and discuss great books in that class.  Some of the kids in the program were a few years older than I was.  But we all got along fine.

Prompt for the Day: “Grain”

The apparent out casts of society want us to try to educate them on going with the Grain by choosing the word for the prompt of today.

Been Going Against the Grain

My whole life.  My head refused to drop down for my mother to give birth to me.  Caused her to be forced to deliver by caesarean section.  In those days, once you have a child in this manner, all following kids have to be removed in this way.  So my two little brothers had to be cut out too.

You would think I would straighten up and fly right after such a dramatic birth, but no I didn’t.  Hated being a female.  There were too many restrictions on what females could and could not do.  Girls were forced to urinate sitting down, I taught myself to be able to urinate standing up with pin-point accuracy.  My mother was not impressed especially when I taught the little girl from church how to do it too!  Why not share the knowledge?  Her mom was not impressed with either that or the fact the two of us decided to color on the walls of my bedroom.  All this before entering kindergarten!

Learned to read before I ever attended school.  Reading the funny papers at my grandparents was how I learned the truth about Santa Claus.  Had to promise not to tell my classmates the truth when I started school.  Used to help our bus driver clean the trash off the floor once he had dropped off most of the other kids on our route each day.

The dog my parents had gotten to protect us was my faithful companion watching me walk down the lane to the highway where the bus stopped to pick me up and drop me off each day.  The animal learned how to recognize cars of people who came to pick me up to leave our property.  If she didn’t know them she refused to allow the vehicle to leave unless my mom told her it was all right.  She was as stubborn as I was!

Hated being forced to wear dresses when I was little.  Truth be told, still do!  Prefer to wear pants.  Even in high school, wore a thin pair of shorts under my dresses when I wore them!  Yes, I had a pair of shorts on under my prom dresses (Junior and Senior prom both)!

Been fighting the system since I was born.  Have no plans on stopping!  My husband is too used to my hard-headedness.  Stopping would confuse both me and too many others.

Prompt for the Day: “Abandoned”

The prompt for the day from the cruel people at the Daily Post division of Word Press is “Abandoned“.

Too Many People / Things are Abandoned

Today’s society has everyone leaving perfectly good people and things by the wayside to fend for themselves.  Look at the number of homeless people in the U.S.A. today!  How many pets have been left wandering out on the streets looking for both food and attention?  Just because the family had to relocate, doesn’t mean their animals should be left behind.

Even things like perfectly usable furniture gets put in the garbage these days.  Granted most newer  home goods are not created to withstand the test of time, like they were in the past generations.  But they could be put to some use if you had a little imagination!

Even our returning veterans who suffer from one form or another of PTSD can be helped with counseling and/ or medications to help stabilize their feelings of outside threats.  They risked their lives defending our country for our safety here at home.  The least we can do is give them a secure place and help overcoming their illnesses!  They may never go back to being who they were before their service, but their experiences should not be wasted out on the streets.

Prompt for the Day: “Solitude”

I did my best thinking when I was little alone up in an old apple tree enjoying the Solitude of being one with God in a natural setting!

Think Introverts of Daily Post at Word Press

Selected today’s prompt to justify their need for alone time.  Who doesn’t need time in peace and quiet to think more clearly each day?  Some times you simply MUST quiet the clamoring of every day life and take a rest break in peace and quiet!  No television, internet, radio, or other devices crying out for your undivided attention.  Just an occasional brief respite in pure and unadulterated solitude.

Everyone needs to experience some much deserved seclusion.  Taking a break from the noise of daily life and the problems associated with it.  Maybe curling up with a pet that is in your life for a brief moment.  Pets can help reduce daily stress by interacting with them on a daily basis.  The pet may be another cause of stress if the animal has a habit of waking you up in the middle of the night because it feels lonely with everyone in bed trying to get a little shut eye.

Apparently, not all creatures enjoy a little isolation.  May have to forcibly teach the animal the world does not stop on his wishes.  We always tell him when we are planning on getting up each morning before heading to bed at night.

Prompt for the Day: “Fleeting”

The people from the Daily Post group of Word Press did not expend too much thought when arriving at today’s prompt of “Fleeting“.  No long drawn out board meetings were required to select this glancing pass of a phrase!

Fleeting Life in Paradise

That is what I considered the seven years we lived in Colorado.  Had absolutely no problems finding my way around the area.  Could tell which way west was by looking where the mountains sat in relation to my position driving on the road.  If we were not happy with the temperature being too warm, we just drove up to a higher elevation!  There was snow up in Estes Park year round!  Drive even further up to the Rocky Mountain National Park where you can visit permafrost locations.  During the winter, parts of the park is unreachable due to snow and avalanche risks.

Got to enjoy skiing a few times.  Had great fun playing in the snow both on the mountain or in our front yard with the neighbor kids. Loved the neighbor’s pets.  One was a dog you would expect to be vicious, but he was a puppy at heart.  All you had to do was talk to him to let him know you were the ones outside he was hearing.  Was an escape artist, breaking out of his fence to go exploring.  One of our cats had a crush on the neighbor’s calico cat.  She was a friendly animal named Patches.

Prompt for the Day: “Singin’ in the Rain”

Prompt for the day from the authors ensconced in their warm dry places of work is “Singing in the Rain“.  They added a few words to help set the mood for our writing adventures of the day “Safe inside, toasty warm, while water pitter-patters on the roof… describe your perfect, rainy afternoon.”.
[blog_subscription_form]
Listening to a good thunderstorm tends to make me feel sleepy.  A gentle rain just makes me need to urinate!  Even just a normal day for me is ruled by the current weather conditions.  My body can’t take the varying pressures of the day.  Extreme pressure changes effects the way my body literally feels.  Minor high fronts don’t bother me.  Extreme ones can trigger a killer migraine headache in me.  Lows don’t tend to make that much of a difference.  Switching from an acute high then dropping down into a period of intense low pressure can set off a major headache storm.

Throw my multiple sclerosis into the mix and you can envision the troubles the weather gives me!  Used to love playing out in the rain (when there was no lightening) when I was little.

Playing in my fenced in yard with my dog when both me and my dog were much younger, was always fun as long as I didn’t track mud into the house.  My mom would be in the house with my little brother, while Cindy (dog) and I would play outside so my mom could put my brother down for a nap.  If I made the mistake of tracking the out side in to the house, would be in big trouble.

Miss playing with Cindy now that she has passed on while I was in upper grade school.  She was my protector!  You could not leave the yard with me in the vehicle unless my mom told Cindy it was all right for the car to leave with me in it!  She used to walk with me to the end of the lane where the driveway met the highway.  Weather didn’t matter to her.

Prompt for the Day: “The New School”

The prompt the wonderful people at the Daily Post group of Word Press gave us for the day is: “The New School“.  They also gave us a suggestion followed by two thought provoking questions: “You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?”

First off the school will have to be completely handicap accessible!  Children may have been born with natural physical limitations, they need to still be able to be included at the school.  Will still concentrate on reading, writing, and math (just not the dreaded Common Core of today)!  Music will be included in some form in the school.  Deaf students may possibly enjoy the physical vibrations caused by the music.  Blind students have absolutely no difficulties hearing the music!

Kids should all learn skills necessary for daily survival out in today’s world.  Basic self defense classes could teach the children how to defend themselves from other creatures existing in the world today!  People have a huge bad habit of taking advantage of the weak.  Kids need to know what to do.  Actual animals like dogs could also be a threat to kids.

Search for what each kid has to offer the world.  You may come across the next military leader the world needs to discover to insure we will see peace, some day!  A budding artist may be attending the school, you just have to give them the opportunity to hone their skills.  The next William Faulkner‘s mind may exist in your very classrooms!

You just need to give the kids a chance to shine at their own talents that you will help them discover.  Give them exposure to as much information as you can, then step back.  No idea how the kids will benefit from their exposure, give them time and encouragement!

The evil word smiths from the Daily Post division of Word Press want me to get fat on things I should not eat, that’s why they devised today’s post of  “Life’s a Candy Store“.

The only candy store I ever remember going into as a child was “See’s Candies“.  Used to think it must have smelled like heaven would smell if I ever died and was lucky enough to go there!  Went there with my mom before Easter every year.  Still never managed to see what a rabbit had to do with the whole Easter story from the Bible.

Can rabbits even eat chocolate, or like most dogs and cats are the allergic to it?  There were several old-time candy stores in “Silver Dollar City” when ourGirl Scout troop visited it back in grade school.

My life has been like a box of assorted melted chocolates, some nice and sweet, others with disgusting centers that makes you feel extremely ill.  Some sick and twisted evil magician must be involved in the creation of my candies.  The poisonous centers to weaken and crumble your very will to survive!  Hope the manager of the candy store that provided my body with it’s contents rots in hell for all eternity!  Not in a good mood today (in case you hadn’t figured that out).

Could candy possibly give you a back ache?  Maybe if you made a life time of over indulging in fattening foods that put a strain on your body.  In that case you ended up with what you deserved anyway!  But if you kept a healthy weight and lost the ability to walk, it wouldn’t actually be your fault, would it?  Doesn’t help in my situation.

Maybe they had just been inspired by watching the movie “Forrest Gump“.  Who knows where they arrive at these daily prompts?
