One of the first fun songs I remember from my childhood is "On Top of Spaghetti."

Three Word Wednesday: November 3

Welcome to another Three Word Wednesday. Click above or on the link below to play along.

Stolen blatantly from the source:

Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.
Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky.
As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.
But I invite everyone to check back often to read and comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers who clamor for feedback.

Go write. Go read. Go comment.

This week's words:

abrupt, kernel, wield

Julianne yanked the duvet off the bed, sending a swirl of dust into the air. After her fit of what her family always called "chihuahua" sneezes subsided, she returned to the task of stripping the bed a little more cautiously. An hour of wielding a can of Pledge and more than one dust rag left her with a room she could live with--at least for the weekend.

A creak in the hallway caused her to hold her breath, waiting for ...what? The other shoe to drop? A knock on the door? A ghostly voice saying, "Trick or treat"? With an abrupt shake of her head, she flung the door open and found nothing. Just an empty hallway and dust motes dancing in the shaft of sunlight that streamed through the open window.

She had turned to head down stairs when she paused as a kernel of memory forced its way into her mind's eye. When she had come up, the window had been closed.


For our daily "How alike are Marianne and Judy" Quiz:

The Good Life is in Your Big Picture

You like nothing more than kicking back and relaxing. And you think you've earned it!

You really value your leisure time, and you are the type of person who pursues many interests.

While you don't think money will make you happy, it can keep you busy for a while... and that's appealing.

You're not ashamed of wanting the very best in life, and you'll probably get it.

Monday Music Memories November 1

Happy Monday Music Memories! Today, I want to know which song made you cry.

The first song I can remember that made me cry wasn't a love song in the traditional sense, but it was still very much a love song. And, even after nearly fifty years, it still makes me cry.

What about you? What song has made you cry?
