The prompt was "The final exam for the Vampirology Diploma included staking and beheading at least one vampire… Show your work." The comedians from 4 Winds have an answer. “Here’s one,” Star looked over her shoulder and grinned. “I had Bigfoot’s’ baby.” “Old news,” Gabe barely up from the stack of books he was skimming. … Continue reading Odd Prompts – Week 52
For the 3rd year in a row my family put together a couple of bags of food and household goods for a local food pantry. While I wish they were more responsive to contacts outside their church members, this is a local church run pantry so they don't get the exposure larger pantries get.

Just the same, He is risen indeed! We serve a resurrected Lord, … Continue reading He is Risen, Indeed! — See, there’s this thing called biology…
For the very low price of “your time”, you get not one but two stories this week. First up, this week’s Odd Prompts story. Beans “Be aware of cat” the sign read. “Shouldn’t that be ‘beware of cat’, He laughed at the typo. Below that sign was a hand written addition, “close the door quickly, … Continue reading Odd Prompts and More
