Happy Birthday...!!!




When my daughter Amanda attended The University of Michigan, she spent her Junior
year as an exchange student in Prague Czech Republic. It was then that she fell in love
with Europe and their laid back lifestyle. When she graduated in 2009, she married her
local boyfriend Sean, and together they set out for a great adventure.
They lived in Prague for a year, teaching English at the University. A better opportunity
came up in Istanbul (not Constantinople) and they lived there about 2 years. I really felt
uncomfortable about her living in a Moslem country being an American and all, so they
moved to Poznan Poland where they have resided for over a year now. I have not seen
her in person in all that time. On April 22 they are coming home for about 10 days!!!!
I miss her terribly. She was my First-Born...My Princess. I can barely contain my excitement.
Today...April 11th is her birthday.
Happy Birthday Manny, Daddy loves you very much!!!!!

C'Mon...You Can Do It!!




First the white ones, then the purple ones.
Seeking out the Sunshine, from beneath Autumn and Winter's debris.
Soon the ground will be a kaleidoscope of color....Soon.
(Not soon enough for me!)

Flash Fiction 55.....


'Mommy, why can't we have McDonalds or KFC?'

"Sweetie, when you were little, I got food poisoning from eating
Gung Bo Gai at that Chinese place in the Mall, and I promised God
that if he'd make me stop puking we'd become vegetarians."

'But Mom, we don't even go to church...I want a WHOPPER!!!!!!!!'

Nada...



"Whats he doing now"?
Nothing!
"What"?
Thats right, he works, goes home, snacks a bit, falls asleep. Goes to bed.
"No Thursday Portraits? No Friday Funfest? No Nothing?"
Nada. Loafs around with no blogging obligations at all.....
The sort of General Malaise that only the Insane Possess, and the Genius Lament!
Ha!....You know, he does seem to have a few Dr. Evil qualities.
But I did hear that he's going to do a 55 for the new Hosts this coming Tuesday.
We'll see if he's lost his touch.
See Ya Tuesday here............http://fireblossom-wordgarden.blogspot.com/
