His honour came from days of old
where maidens fell at his feet
Dragons roared and spewed fire
his challenge; to defeat.
His body clad in armor;
a helmet placed upon his head
To defend the king’s daughter,
His life’s blood, willingly shed.
As he breathed his last farewell,
she placed a rose upon his chest
She wept tears of sorrow,
knowing he had given his best.
The dragon lay cold and lifeless;
the village safe, for now
The knight died for their honour
After fulfilling his sacred vow.

Please enjoy Mitch’s hilarious true story! Be sure to visit his blog, it’s a real treat! 🙂
I’d reached the sagely age of 20, and had finally scratched together the down payment for a groovy avocado green Chevy Vega with harvest gold vinyl seats. Then, just two weeks later, a very un-groovy cop pulled me over. “But my speedometer said 65!” “I clocked you at 72, son.” I courteously explained that he […]

Please enjoy this beautiful poem from Revenge of Eve’s blog.
Her walk some consider a flaunt Posture like that of a ballerina A look of confidence masks her truth Up close you will see the tremble of her hands If you dare look her in the eye, intensity becomes visual Unpenetrable wall hides her pain Her soul broken in innocence Shame, Her life sentence From […]

The weirdest thing has been happening in Frisco, Texas. There have been 6 (that I know of) aggressive coyote attacks on humans! From my experience, coyotes are normally afraid of humans and will avoid them.
There is an article HERE about some of these attacks that you can read. It’s not that these people were provoking the animals. They were actually stalked and attacked!
Frisco is NOT a tiny town out in the wilderness. It has a population of more than 177, 000 people and is only about 30 miles north of the mega city, Dallas (1.3 million). Another fact: several of these coyotes have been shot and killed, then tested for rabies. They’ve all tested negative for rabies.
This is totally out of character for these animals. There are all kinds of guesses as to what may be causing them. People feed their animals outside, garbage cans, etc., etc.
But let’s let our imaginations run wild here. What do you think may be causing these attacks? Are they drinking water that’s poisoned with radiation? Are they actually alien creatures? Are they part of a plan by some evil villain?
I’m asking for your input with this because in a round-about way, this applies to my WIP, novel. Your ideas would be a tremendous help! PLEASE use the comment section below and give me your most creative, crazy, wild ideas for the attacks.
Thank you, my WordPress friends! ❤ Penny
Before doing anything else (apart from taking dog out for morning business, cleaning out woodstoves, lighting one, having a cup of coffee, putting the groceries away, feeding the birds, watering the cats indoors and plants outdoors, going down to the stream to hang up a squirrel treat in a poplar tree), I needed to listen […]
