FFfAW — Tropical Snow

Have you ever heard the term, “A cold day in hell?” The Tropics are a far cry from hell, but it snowed in the Tropics!

Children are outside with homemade sleds and families are building snowmen. Everyone is having a ball from this unlikely snowstorm.

The sandy beaches are covered with snow. People are at the beach building snow castles instead of sand castles. The bikini has been replaced with sweaters, long leggings and boots complimented with gloves and warm hats.

It's certainly not a cold day in hell but it sure is a cold day! We're having a ball!

Sugar

When my little dog Bria passed away from Conjestive heart failure, I was devasted. She was very special to me. She was my best friend for 15 years and 3 months.

After several months of grieving, I decided to get a new puppy. She can't replace Bria but at least she will keep me company. Her name is Sugar. She is a little pistol. I should have had my head examined before adopting a feisty little puppy. LOL! This is Sugar…

 

FFfAW – My Pretty Garden

My backyard is my favorite place to sit. I enjoy sitting out in the open air and reading a book or hosting my friends with a cup of coffee or tea. I spend many enjoyable moments in my backyard. There were many great memories made in my backyard garden “room.”

That changed when I met Cecilia. I enjoyed her company and liked her right away. I felt we would become good friends and spend many hours enjoying each other's company in my backyard. Little did I know that she was trying to get rid of me and take over my home and my pretty backyard.

I had to kill her. Too bad. We could have been good friends.

FFfAW-Tree Hugger

I am an avid tree hugger. I hug them because I want to save them from the death of the loggers.

Sadly, hugging trees doesn't help save them, no matter how hard I hug.

I write letters to the editor of newspapers where the logging is taking place but it seems to do no good. Beautiful trees that have been growing for hundreds of years are being cut down.

Tomorrow, I am chaining myself to one of the trees they are going to cut down. They will have to kill me to get the tree. Maybe now they will listen!

FFfAW-True Love?

Adam asked me to meet him for coffee and I gladly did so. I was happy because I thought that meant that he was sweet on me as I certainly was sweet on him.

My hopes were up. Finally! He has noticed me. It was about time!

As soon as I sat down I noticed his sad face.

“What's wrong, Adam?”

Claudia has left me.”

My heart sank. (Who was Claudia?)

“Will you help me get her back?”

(What was I suppose to say? Sure I will!?)

“Hell No!” I answered.

I then got up and quickly walked out.

FFfAW – Life

I sat in the waiting room staring at a picture hanging on the wall. It seemed so dark and dismal to me. I asked myself, “Why would they put such a dark picture on the wall of a hospital?”

My mother was in surgery and we waited impatiently for any news from the doctor. It felt like waiting for paint to dry.

Then it occurred to me. Of course! Everyone has dark moments in life and coming through those dark times makes us a better person. The picture stopped troubling me at that point.

Suddenly the doctor walked in,

“She is going to be okay,” he said, smiling.

FFfAW – She Can’t Sing

My mother thinks she can sing. My dad plays the piano while she “sings.” I have to close my ears. My dad told me to stop doing that because it will upset mother.

My dad placates to her and expects me to do the same thing. We have to make mother think she can sing.

She tells us when she gets good enough she is going to try and find a job as a singer.

Let's hope she will finally get good enough. Until then, I am wearing ear plugs!
