How Much Farther

This was written for today’s FOWC With Fandango or Fandango’s One Word Challenge. Today’s word is “MAP”. 

My dad and I were traveling from Montreal to Los Angeles and I was the map reader. This was many years ago. When I think back now about it I have to laugh. Dad would ask how much farther to the next city and I’d look at the map and instead of answering him with the number of miles to go I would show him with my thumb and index finger and say about this far.



This is in response to Fandango’s FOWC Challenge: RAPID

FOWC with Fandango (Fandango’s One Word Challenge)

Today’s word is “suit”

I couldn’t believe my eyes

When I looked outside

There stood a dog in a suit

What a hoot

He even wore a tie

You know I wouldn’t lie

I wondered where his owner was

No reason just because



Food Lover – Poem

Gourmand is the word. 

FOWC with Fandango


The man was a gourmand

And, a poor man

When it came to food

He had to feed a brood


Hot dogs and Kraft Dinner

Was all always a winner


When invited out to eat

He would never miss a beat


He loved buffets

Because he could graze

Upon the food

Actually, he seemed quite rude


He loved Christmastime

His favorite time to dine

Eat and eat mainly all the meat

Once gone,  he’d look for all the sweets


The man was a glutton

Needed to wear a button

Explaining that he overate

Knowing that it was quite a mistake



Keep On Fighting

It doesn’t matter what, cancer to me is only a disease that I’ll always be able to overcome. You must keep a positive attitude and a positive outlook in order to beat it.  What do you have to lose, you fight you will hopefully win, you give in to it and it will more than likely take your life.

It’s not a pretty ride with all the testing, radiation and chemo but just keep saying to yourself I got this, I’m going to beat this, and carry on.

Sure, you’ll feel sick and exhausted and feel sorry for yourself, but you must fight this battle to win.

If you’d like to read my story I’ve included a link below.

This was written for a challenge over at Fandango’s. The word prompt is battle.

Dessert Anyone?

A 2 stanza haiku-style poem about turnovers

You glare at me with such hatred

Yet you tell others I am sacred


Your piercing eyes go right through me

Does this mean that you loathe me?


Your actions towards me show much scorn

It’s like you hate the day I was born


If you hate me so

Why not just let me go



This poem is for FOWC with Fandango

The word for this challenge is scorn.
