What Do You See? — Knockers

I’m sitting on the pier looking out at the orange sky of the setting sun and wondering where my muse has gone.

The low, dark clouds in front of me remind me of the fact that I haven’t been able to construct a decent sentence, much less an entire post, using the combination of daily prompt words — even my own — that have been offered up over the past week or so.

I try to beseech my muse to inspire me, to grant me a festival of ideas and the words to express them, but she is silent, just as a lamp with no oil left to burn has lost its flame.

I think back and suddenly recall my all time favorite movie, “Young Frankenstein” and that great scene about the door with enormous knockers. A smile comes to my face. An idea enters my brain. I’ll post that scene from the movie!

Yeah, that’s the ticket!

    I have to say I must be in the minority when first seeing this word or I am a lowlife, one or the other, maybe both. I had to smile and not going to respond.

      My post took both the high road (door knockers) and the, well, other road. 😉

    That is such a funny scene. There was a service dog in the supermarket today when I want shopping and I said, “Hey cutie” and this blond turned around and looked at me. I told her I was talking to the dog and she smiled at me and said she knew that.
