100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Week# 55

Julia has been plotting this one for weeks, threatening a really tough challenge and even cackling about it. So we have to write the words that go with this picture!

A Cat in Need


Dear human lady person who cooks chicken and salmon for me, please come back straight away. It seems I need you after all, because the beer person keeps throwing dry brown things into my bowl, instead of the gourmet delights you so sweetly prepare for me. And now he has done something to my head, because he’s too lazy to pamper me with the silver hairbrush, I have a scarf that smells like rabbit and something from a Christmas cracker over my eyes. He keeps talking about a Cats Protection League and looking at me strangely. Come immediately.



Story Challenge: Letter ‘H’

Frizztext’s challenge is H this week and he asks that we  ‘share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “H”? For example I’ve written about HONG KONG (watch below) or about HONEYMOONERS, about HORSEs, HIPPIEs and HYDRANTs, about HANGING, HAND BAGS and HATS, about HA LONG BAY, HANDS or HIPPOs, HOLIDAYS or HAIRDRESSERs, “HIGH FIVE” or HOBBIES, HERRINGS or HOUSEBOATS, HOT PANTS or HANG GLIDERS, HAITI or HOLLAND etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “H”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “H”!!!’.

So I’ve chosen hats, men in hats to be precise. It began last night when I caught an interview with Larry Hagman on TV in advance of the return of Dallas to  our screens. He was wearing his trademark Stetson, a little beige number made from beaver which apparently cost five thousand dollars, an obscene amount of money.

Because I’m a crafter I go to lots of country shows and village days in summer and there are always men in hats to be seen. Here are three that amuse me, hope you like them too.
