PRIDE TAKES A TUMBLE

 I am remembering the Limerick Challenge which was hosted by Rashmi.  I am reprinting one because it was so much fun and it is so appropriate for me today.  Does anyone know of someone else who is hosting limerick challenges or prompts?  I’d like to get in on it if so.

PRIDE TAKES A TUMBLE

 That dude had so much pride

He tossed all his clothing aside,

But to his chagrin

The laughter begin

He  quickly re-covered his hide!

Dear Blogging Friends, I guess the Lord is bringing something to my attention that I don’t really know how to handle except to stop.  It seems more than coincidence that I am just now wising up to the fact that I have been using pictures illegally.  I googled “free images” and really believed they were free, so I’ve used them.

Pixabay is not working today for some reason. I tried to find other sources for “a naked man in a barrel” and I see that I should have been paying for a license or something before they are really free.

I tried to do that this morning but it is all confusing to me, so I took a picture of piled clothing with my camera but I can’t send to e-mail.  The Lord must be pruning me!

So this delightful little limerick has no picture.  I am smarter, but I don’t know how to make it right.  So as I say, I just stop.  No more pictures until I can find out what to do about it.

************

My desperate attempt to get a picture.  I scanned my camera!  Well – – Can you see that pile of clothes?  But it won’t e-mail to me!   Alas, alas!  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Pixabay is down for some reason. It’ll no doubt come back. In the meantime, there are lots of free images available through various museums, like this one. Somewhere in my bookmarks I’ve got a bunch of free sites. I’ll see if I can find them. In the meantime, you can go to the WordPress support page and search using the term “free images” and they have several suggestions posted.

    By the way — if you ever want to check a website you can’t get into, go to Is It Down Right Now? You just type in the URL of the site, and it tells you what’s up. What’s not up right now is Pixabay. I checked their site, and they’re down for maintenance. So, they’ll be back shortly, I suspect.

      Thank you, Linda. You have helped me out so many times. I did go to the support and a few other places. Listed my possibilities in my file. Will try them out as I have opportunity. You are knowledgeable and kind. Thanks.
