high school reunion
the years creep up

others ~ name tags required
any resemblance

# 1551 CSP prompt: FROZEN

icy North escape
Wooden Horse in St Thomas
bucket list checked off
barkeeps secret recipe
pina coladas yum-mo
the pina colada
all the way home
one in each hand
I made a pilgrimage to back in 1968…
heard they made the best pina coladas.
My friend Kathy and I wanted the recipe
our hubby’s didn’t let us go alone!..
She talked the bartender into making a batch from fresh ingredients
… newly opened cans… so we could eye ball the amount.
As he made them,
she checked the ingredients,
and I wrote them down. Johnny Carson.\

The bartender was specific to the DOLE pineapple chunks,
Barcardi white Rum
and CoCo Lopez creamed coconut
(that’s an easy one.. it was the only one ! )

I saw a version that froze the pineapple chunks
(they used crushed) with a sparing of crushed ice

# 1550 TPOS prompt: blue bird: Two Blue Jays

putting out bird food
St Francis would approve
the sound of crows
two doors down top of tree
two blue jays calling
TPOS prompt … blue bird

# 1549 TPOS prompt: what you walk by but don’t see.

fence is up
pasture ready
missed the new barn
bigger than a bread box
The barn is on the right…
I asked where the horses
were going to be kept nice and cozy warm
knowing there’d be a place.
I took the photo from beside the car …
the building faces the driveway
so it HAD to be there
on my arrival half hour before !
what you walk by but don’t see.
