A sad prompt today . . .


Unfortunately, Jess’ beautiful Cavalier King Charles is still missing despite an all night search, ads on Gumtree, contacting vets, council etc.

Hopefully, the prompt will inspire stories with happy endings as we are still hoping for. Pet owners the world over will understand how it feels ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Lost Dog

Just in case anyone in the Gawler/Buchfelde/Two Wellsย area of South Australia is reading this –

My daughter has arrived home from work to find her beloved King Charles Cavalier missing.

His name is Clyde, he is about 6 years old, tan and white (Blenheim)

He is microchipped, desexed. A beautiful dog.

If anyone in the area has seen or found him please email me asap- ย

Thank you!

The morning after

Today’s prompt . . .

The morning after began like most days and it wasn’t until he was halfway through his first mug of coffee that he remembered . . .

I’ve had a couple of emails this morning asking if I will be extending the closing date for the Positive Words Short Story and Poetry Competition…in fairness to the other entrants I am unable to do this but for those who missed out there is still the monthly mini-competition – this month featuring the word KNITTING. And details for the next major competition will be announced soon.
