Sammiscribbles Weekend Writing Prompt

Ours not to question why, ours but to do or die, my version of a phrase from “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. I admit saying this sometimes to my kids when my actions were questioned with “why?” because an unpleasant task had to be done. The inevitable never ending questions from the moment your child first speaks, and goes on forever until you finally retort with “Because I said so!” I know it’s not the ideal perfect parents’ response.


SoCS Body Parts🎃

What day is it anyway? It’s Friday, damn it, but I’m apparently up in the clouds, Anyway, I’m finally here with your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. I’m happy to announce Alex is back at school. He hasn’t complained about his stomach and I’m not reminding him to, but I’m still waiting to see what his test says on Monday. Anyhoo, here’s your prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “body parts.”Pick a body part and talk about it. Make sure to leave a comment below or put a disclaimer at the top of your post if it’s NSFW! There are people who participate in SoCS and love to support others, but not every one will want to read about private parts. Have fun!


Okay is this trick or treat? Cause believe me there’s no part of my body that isn’t a trick and certainly no treat😅. Hauling around a 75 year body in a scooter may sound funny to you and well yes I have to admit it has it’s moments —like yesterday when I leaned over the front to reach the kitchen faucet, caught a bra strap on the backup lever and ended up in the living room before I could get it untangled. Yes I was dressed—get your mind out of the gutter😂and yes I need to turn it off before moving around on it. But where’s the fun in that? I like to live dangerously, like Dr. Nefario.

Parkour Stunts

I was curious as to how long it took to film the opening sequence of 2006 “Casino Royale” and here it is. Six weeks! This was the first 007 movie starring Daniel Craig – my favorite Bond actor btw.


The opening parkour chase is one of Casino Royale’s most spectacular set pieces– one of the most exciting in the entire franchise, in fact– and it took a whopping six weeks to shoot. Sep 24, 2020


Spider Web

Intricate, beautiful, I agree,

It’s what it holds that bothers me.

No comfort for the likes of me,

When it’s a cobweb that I see.

There’s no leeway, I’ll need assistance

To keep this creature its distance.


MLMM First Line Friday

“Whatever you do, you can’t do that.”

“Try me!” Joe reached for the fuse and lit the match. His Halloween was going to be spectacular this year. It had to be since the school was closed, no one was wearing costumes, and the whole town was engulfed in snow.

His finger wagging parent was not quick enough and the firework fuse was burning. They both dived behind a tree, waiting to see what would happen.

Suddenly a loud boom and the sky lit up with a huge orange Jack-o’-lantern. Joe’s dad just started laughing.
