PLEASE participate

It’s not like I’m asking you wrestle alligators, although there are some in the lake near my house.  Did you know alligators can climb fences?




Welcome to OCTOBER 3!


Today’s prompt is:  What would you say is the biggest change in your life?

So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, I’ll share a vignette with you:


I live in a dog house, and the dogs just  let me live here.

I spent the first 18 years of my life dreaming about living “up north.”  Before dreams of Alaska dance through your head, when you’re from South Florida, “up north” is Orlando.

I lived in North Carolina for two years, then moved back to Florida after divorce.  I married again three years later, and during the next ten years, we moved from Minnesota to Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina and back to Wisconsin again.

After he died, I remarried three years later and we lived in California for four years.  I spent one year in Houston, and in 1993, moved to my present home in North Florida.

I swore the next time I moved, it would be to Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Here are the rules:

  1. A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. It ends on the 1st Thursday of the next month.  

  2. Copy and paste your 120 word entry into the reply section below, along with a link to your blog.  To me, everyone who enters is a winner, but if you must have a winner, the entry with the most likes wins.  

  3. Limit your #TMAT120 post to 120 words. People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.

  4. When/if you publish your entry on your blog, use the #TMAT120 picture to show that you are participating in the prompt. Please don’t alter (except for size).  

  5. Please don’t use hard-core curse words. They’ll be edited out if you do, and you might not like the words I choose to replace them with.  🙂 

  6. Take time to read other people’s #TMAT120 & their posts, after all you might make a new friend.
