Squidoo Sunday and Grandparents Day

Just in case you do not already know, then I am here to remind you! Today is National Grandparents Day in the USA. I hope you are having a Grand day.

For those whose grandparents may be far away or somewhere over the rainbow, take heed ... There are plenty of elderly people out there who would love it if you would give them the time of day.

Creating and collecting picture postcards is a passion of mine. Grandparents are people I am compassionate towards, especially those who are long distance grandmas and grandpas. I combine my thoughts on the two in an article on the Squidoo writing platform. I do believe postcards a positive way to bridge the Grand generation gap!

Now it's time to hop on over to link up with Squidoo Sunday with Noner Says! It is always a pleasure to see what treasures she's sharing on her blog hop this week. Come along and have yourself a peek!

Wild Tale Of Tenfold

This little piece of flash fiction is dedicated to my friend Nancy for her neverending passion for helping to save America's wild horses.

It is my hope that one day this fictional tale becomes truth beheld as fact.

The inspiration for this writing comes from Five Sentence Fiction.

We are given a prompt word each week on which to base our story written in five sentences.

The word prompt this week: BEAUTY

Wild Tale of Tenfold

"Beast cometh to round us up and to chop us down in our own dirt," snorted Stallion at the lead of a flying stampede.

"Dreamscape the legend of the land," Mare cries in bloodcurdling neigh to her faraway foul. "The day shall come when men of the wind find themselves flogged with the horsewhip of our nightmarish end."

To wit: Hellfire cometh for mankind for his heinous crime while wild horses shall be freed to roam with the herd in a heavenly home here on earth governed by golden bird.

Ah! there is but beauty to behold in the tale of tenfold!
