Unusual Pets


There’s still a little space left in the October PETS issue . . . I have lots of dog, cat and chook pieces but I’d love to include more stories and poems about unusual pets.

There’s still time to send your story or poem. I don’t have an official cut-off point but please post as soon as possible.

Noah’s Ark


I love this Noah’s Ark in the playground at Gumbuya Park ๐Ÿ™‚

Alas, my post box was empty ๐Ÿ˜ฆ yesterday when I was hoping it would be filled with my own Ark full of stories, poems and articles (and, of course, subscriptions!) for the October issue.

Please . . . send them in. Two by two, would be great ๐Ÿ™‚

In Hiding


The Koalas stayed in hiding, even when the attendants came to refresh their supply of gum leaves.

Ginger Cats


Don’t be fooled . . . my daughter’s ginger cat, Turner, is probably not getting ready for a snooze! He’s most likely waiting to pounce!

It must be the ginger fur, because he shares the ‘attack’ gene with my Bailey ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But . . . whether your cat is an attacker or a placid couch potato, send in your pet stories and poems. I’ll be featuring PETS in an upcoming issue. Work needs to be in hard copy and sent to Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.


Pet stories and poems wanted


Or cat, guinea pig, chicken, duck, snake, rock . . . whatever your preferred pet.

For an upcoming issue I will be featuring ‘pet’ stories, poems and articles. Good pets, bad pets, cheeky pets, lost, found, past, present etc

Submissionsย need be in hard copy (email copies requested on acceptance). Stories and articles should be up to 1000 words and poems up to one page. Send to PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia.ย  Or, email me for further information

You don’t have to be a subscriber (although subscriptions are always welcome and help to keep the magazine alive!)

Send them in asap ๐Ÿ™‚



I thought it fitting to follow the cows with some cute lambs we saw at a travelling animal show ๐Ÿ™‚


Today’s prompt…

This little fellow came to visit us soon after we bought our land back in 2006 and we saw him (although it could have been another one – it’s hard to tell ๐Ÿ™‚ ) one more time but although I’m always looking, we haven’t seen him recently.

When my children were young we took my Nan for a country drive one afternoon and spotted an Echidna beside the road. Nan’s excitement (she was in the early stages of Alzheimers) was pure joy to watch and seeing an Echidna always brings back wonderful memories for me ๐Ÿ™‚
