100 WWC – Makeover Lighthouse

Imagine 150 years ago, ships coming into this bay in a pitch-black night! They couldn’t see if they were hitting rocks or anything in shallow water. What happened if you lived in that house? A ship might have collided into it.

Well, a farmer lived in that house. He hung a kerosene lantern on the side of the barn to protect his farm house. Later the government put a lens lantern on top of a wooden post. Years have gone by, eventually the government owns that property, and changed it into a lighthouse.

Don’t you think that farmer was clever!

“It’s good! The wait wasn’t too long.”

“Yes, we got here in time to beat the crowd. The after work traffic is getting worse. Every minute counts, especially on Fridays.”

“I had a hectic week at work. Thank God the weekend is here!”

“I look forward to the weekend too.”

“I like the way you set your hair, now I can see more of your beautiful face!”

“Oh, thanks, just wanted to try something different! Did you notice that gentleman there? He used to come with his wife! He is here alone. I wonder what happened to his wife!”

Fourteen and Under

Fishing week 13

“Hey, Sis, got anything?”

“No! Not yet. The water is quiet. You can hear a pin drop.”

“Don’t worry, we got all day.”

“I know. How about you? Got anything?”

“Not yet! I’m glad Dad found this lake for us to hang out. We almost have the whole lake to ourselves. No big guys come here!”

“Yah, that’s the good thing. Big guys have all the fishing gadgets. I feel stupid with my small fishing rod next to them.”

“There is a fishing contest next month for us under fourteen years old.”

“Oh, I want to do it, will you?”

Mom and Dad waited until a month ago to tell me. They said they would get me a special present for my sixteenth birthday.  In order to get this present, I had to take a class. I promised I would. They told me that they wanted to get a pony for my birthday, and I could train him to be a good horse. I was jumping and hugging and kissing my Mom and Dad.

I’m picking my Pony! The white one looks so handsome. I’ll groom him, and train him to be a graceful horse. What do I name him?

Dress rehearsal today! Hooray!

Well, we don’t have to dress up. I don’t know why it’s called dress rehearsal.

Oh, the crew is setting up the stage with the scenery. The yellow brick road looks cool. Now we can round around it three times before we turn to the garden area to find the Wizard’s Castle.

This is better than the other rehearsals when we ran around the floor with no markings. We ended up bumping each other. The director was always so serious to get us back on track.

Dress rehearsal with real scenery! Wait! Where is Dorothy?

The winter has gone by in a flash.

Your presence made my winter warmer and funnier.

The snowfall fights was hilarious,

you hit my mouth when I was laughing with you.

You taught me how to play new games, and

I wanted to play again and again.

The stories you told me about the people down the mountain fascinated me,

I wanted to hear more.

You liked the hot cocoa I made and we drank it by the fireplace.

You rubbed my hands and fingers to make them warm.

How I like winter!

Why do you have to go?
