Truthful Tuesday — The New Year

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know about our outlook for the new year. He’s asking us…

Now that the holidays and last year are over, are you filled with a renewed sense of hope at the coming year, or something else? Please explain.

I’m assuming that not much will change, at least through the first half of 2021. That said, I’m cautiously optimistic that, if we make it through the next 15 days — until Biden’s inauguration on January 20th — without the total collapse of democracy in the United States, there is hope for a better year.

Tuesday Story #5 — Burgers and Flamingos

I had a hankering for a big, juicy burger and fries.So I hopped into my car and drove to my favorite burger joint. Unfortunately, it was the beginning of rush hour, and traffic was brutal.Rather than driving all the way home, I decided to stop at a local park to enjoy my burger.Apparently the aroma of the burger and fries are irresistible to pink flamingos and soon I was overrun by them. I only escaped alive by sacrificing the rest of my burger and fries to the horde of hungry birds.

FOWC with Fandango — Overhaul

FOWCWelcome to January 5, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “overhaul.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
