  1. Well done again Joy! The poor messenger…I hope the people do not take it out on him! Thanks again for writing for the MFtS challenge. Be well… ^..^

  2. Hope they don’t repeat the same thing otherwise the earthlings will come later poor Yinganglu will have to suffer first. What a difficult job but a striking pay package. πŸ˜‰

  3. Oh dear, now that is one job I do not wish to ever have. Zeus sounds like a should sit on the naughty spot and calm down.
    Great take on the picture!

  4. I say bring on the thunder and lightning, as long as the rain comes with it. Maybe we humans should revolt a little more, especially the drought areas. LOL
    Just keep the tornadoes at bay!

    Good job, enjoyed reading your work.

I would love to read your thoughts...
