The prompt this week is

Marriage

Light and dark so different yet so perfect for each other.
One cool and fragile and one warm and hardy.
With delicacy and robustness they delight and are perfect.
Yes, they are better together than apart.
Vanilla ice cream and hot fudge.

Z is for Zenith…

z4pThere was a little girl who

was so excited about getting a TV.

Most of her friends already had TV’s
and it seem so unfair that she didn’t.

One day Daddy came home with a Zenith TV!

She could hardly wait to watch The Lone Ranger, Annie Oakley,
Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and The Cisco Kid.

When the TV was all set up and turned on
first Daddy had to watch the Evening News and then
it was time for the little girl to go to bed.

She cried but still had to go to bed,
it was a school night.

Finally, one day she got to watch The Lone Ranger.
She sat in front of that TV and could hardly contain herself.

There he was the Lone Ranger, and Tonto, too.
They looked pretty good except for the white duds the Ranger wore.
She liked Tonto’s clothes, though.

But when she watched the story it was not
nearly as good as the stories on the radio.

She was very disappointed.
Same with all the other Westerns.

The cartoons were fun and the Saturday afternoon
Tarzan movies were good.
She liked Lawrence Welk, Ed Sullivan, and Queen for a Day.

But still TV was such a let down.

The little girl was not impressed with TV.
Her imagination was so much better than what TV had to offer.

Rain,Snow,Sleet,Ice…

Well, here we are again.
Schools and businesses closed today.

snowday

It rained, sleeted, and snowed.
It melted a little then snowed, rained, and sleeted.
What we have now is ice.
Is sleeted a real word?

Thankfully, no power outages in this area.
The rain, snow, and sleet is to continue off and on tonight.
What tomorrow will be like is unknown.
It will be icy in the morning but supposed to warm up a bit
and the ice will begin to melt.
Then the temperatures will drop and all the slush stuff will freeze
and Friday morning will probably be icy but the afternoon temps
should be more seasonal and maybe the ice will go away.
One can hope.

I know the pictures don’t look so bad especially to folks with tons of snow
but all that on the road is ice and that is bad.

Wonder if where I work will be open tomorrow?
Wonder if I will go to work  tomorrow even if the store is open?
Nice to have the option to stay home but I do have work to do.

Love is to let them be…

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
Thomas Merton
