Where is he? We are supposed to meet at six this evening.

I went to his nephew’s birthday party at his house last night. His mom was there. His five siblings, spouses, and their kids; aunts, uncles and friends were all over the house.

They were laughing and talking with each other. I was the only stranger. No one came to talk to me. I didn’t know how to break the ice.

My family has mom, pop, little brother and I. How should I have mingled with large family?

I want to talk about what his family expects of me!

100 WWC – Home Sweet Home

I still remember the day I came home from the war. Being in the Navy for five years, there was no day that I didn’t think of my Mama and my darling Elsie. I looked at their pictures every time I got a moment, kissing them a thousand times. Never knew if I could make it home to see them again!

The Almighty is good. The war ended, and we came back to California. Mama and Elsie were waiting for me on this dock. I couldn’t run fast enough to hold them.

That was the best day in my life!

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?

100 Word Wednesday: Week 10 – Rehearsal

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?
