Day 243 – September 10, 2018

Irony – VJ’s Weekly Challenge / Stoic – Manic Mondays / Bridges – Photo for the Week #8 / Day 10 – #SeptemberSquares / Stability – FOWC / Grace – RDP / Tempestuous – WODC / Made of Wood – citysonnet DWP

Another day of rain, more flooding, and more photos of water, equaled a trip to find the flooding.  Found it. Before I even checked what the prompts were today I knew I wanted to stop at this bridge.  How fortunate the irony when I assembled today’s prompts. This is the Utica Covered Bridge, the fourth that I have photographed this year (more photos below).  I tried to capture the sheer magnitude of these tempestuous waters.  When I approached the bridge, there was no way I was able to keep a stoic demeanor.  To put this in perspective, the tree in the…

Just travel


 Goa is not only the land of beaches or city of
churches; it’s a feeling that defines thrill in
most amazing way

                                         GOA BEYOND THE BEACHES..!

Why is it so difficult to think of Goa beyond its beaches ? Even when i were close to my eyes a month back and think of Goa i would think of beaches – pristine blue with golden sand and perhaps a bottle of Goa’s favourite chilled beer King’s. However , that trip to the land has changed it all . Here is a small Travel blog story on Goa beyond beaches.

My Encounters with Organized Labor

No Facilities

It’s a holiday weekend (Labor Day) here in the US. I wrote this post in 2013. Since so few people visited this blog at that point, I revised it for today. You’ll be please to know that I trimmed about 100 words off the original.

The first time I came face to face with organized labor was in the parking lot of a machine shop that made gun barrels. The night before, I had worked my first solo shift running the drills. The daytime driller met me in the parking lot with a scrapped gun barrel in one hand and my tally sheet in the other. I wasn’t sure how he got the tally sheet; I had dropped it into a locked box. He informed me that I had drilled too many barrels, pointing to an edited count with the end of the gun barrel – “this is how…

Messages from the Edge

Out an' About

My sunglasses dropped down the cliff. I was mortified.

Looking down at the ocean from high above I felt an overwhelming urge to get them back.

Ordinarily I would have cut my losses and left them. The jagged cliff hung high over the ocean and the sea below was rough and choppy, but I could see my sunglasses on the rocks below and I believed there was a way down. I was determined to get them back.


So slowly, ever so slowly, I took the first step. I could see what resembled a narrow goat track and felt a sense of determination.  As I set off, each step taken with blind faith, footings appeared in the rocks.

Another step, then a third, and each time I could see a little bit in front of me, not much but enough to convince me I could make it. Half way down and the…

The End of the Okinawa Fighting

Pacific Paratrooper


Hari-kari to end Okinawa

‘The Fall of Japan” by William Craig, excerpt submitted by Rosalinda Morgan who can be found at https://subliblog.wordpress.com/

On the evening of the twenty-first of June, Generals Ushijima and Cho sat down to a sumptuous meal in their home under Hill 89. Overhead the Americans walked on top of the escarpment, where Japanese soldiers continued to resist them by fighting for every rock and tree.

The generals ate quietly. As their aids offered toasts, the two leaders drank to each other with dregs of whiskey preserved for this moment. A full moon shone on the white coral ledges of Hill 89 as a final tribute rang through the cave: “Long live the Emperor.”

At 4:00 A.M. on the morning of the twenty-second, Ushijima, cooling himself with a bamboo fan, walked with Cho between lines of crying subordinates to the mouth of the cave. There Cho…

Discover The Photographs Of Rats Artists By Ellen van Deellen

On Redbubble

Dutch photographer and artist Ellen van Deelen has created series of photos: with musicians rats, and scenes of lives of our daily life.
As the main characters were his pets Moppy, Witje and Rosie.
One day, Ellen saw a mini guitar playing in the shop window, and immediately she presented the picture of her two students as musicians. Not without reason the rats in their mental development are considered to be one of the closest to humans:
Moppy, Witje and Rosie, under the direction of the hostess, quickly learned to take tools and pose in front of the camera. It should be noted that Ellen herself loves music, likes to play violin and guitar. In the photos, the rats appear in images so beautiful and very touching.
“They are very smart and respond to their names – said…
