panama canal survivor
prickly ole fart
ninety eight years old
in neighborhood bar
bet you I can drink more than you
a wet behind the ear youngster
taken to hospital
don’t want to die here
kicked out the hospital due to rebel rousing
want to die in my own house
did just that
with a smile on his face

Photo taken at 7:15pm this past Sunday.
In the month of April I participated in the marathon A to Z Challenge which I absolutely enjoyed. It gave me the opportunity to get rid of some of these characters running around in my head. Most of them I didn’t even know were there. I just followed where they took me. To all who stopped by, commented and decided to stick around, I thank you. I really do appreciate your support.
As for suggestions for improvement, I have none, it was a great experience all around.
A special thanks to Alex J. Cavnaugh
and cohosts and helpers.
Especially to those who helped when my brain was fried from working 12 hour shifts and I couldn’t remember the rules of the challenge in the beginning. Which is why my ‘B’ entry came way down the line. A special thanks to
Danny D of
Evelyne of http://evelyneholingue.com/
for their continued support and encouragement. I did not get to as many blogs as I would have liked but I do plan to plod on.
Again thanks to all.
