I don’t know what kind of flowers these are…but they are gorgeous even from afar.

Tree or bush, don’t care…tall and gorgeous. Would love one for my yard.

Note:  At Martha’s the walls, shelves are decorated with memorabilia mainly of  “I love Lucy” and and “Elvis”…but there is more variety.  I chose the booth with the Elvis booklet on the shelf  beside the  booth and the views of him on the wall…thinking of my roommate, Julie, from Nurses training who loved and still adores Elvis.
My father did not allow Elvis music to be played, nor the records displayed in his F W Woolworth store in West Allis, Wisconsin, USA,  because of the movements Elvis  made with his hips when he sang !

The dock next to the library in Somesville, ME, USA …It was a perfect summer day.

                        Johnny Jump Up in the Side walk…                Survival against all odds

The Process:

I thought today I’d try something different…

maybe my brain was back to functioning and

able to create something new and innovative.

Not so, yet.

It’s been a while since my thinking pattern

was altered as a side effect of a medication.

The doctor assures me it isn’t dementia or

Alzheimer’s,

but the inability to grasp words on command

or have the huge mental pauses may last

forever.

Frustrating.

I don’t want to bore myself or others

with the same old thing day after day.

For the few of you that read my six word

journals,

and leave kind messages,

I appreciate them more than you can know.

So for today, Six words it is:

Dad:  Weather/whether/wanted/or not

.

PS

My dad grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and he was very philosophical about the weather and when one of use would

complain, he almost always say “You have you have weather whether you want it or not.”  And that was our signal to

“adjust” to what ever weather we were whining about.
