My friend, Flossie, was a flibbertigibbet, sure enough.  She was a’flutter with her latest bit of fault finding.  Her neighbor, Flora, was flaunting too much flesh.  The way Flossie tells it, she, herself, had been a fashionista back in the days when she was a flight attendant.  But that was just a foreshadow of things to come.  Now the floodgates were open, girls had forfeited their modest femininity and lived lives of fruitless froth – all fake, fizz, and foam.  Now floozy Flora claims “no fault” and stands aghast and dumbfounded when a purveyor surveys the display.


I’m tagging “humor” although I am well aware I am walking a wire!  😀  I’m old as Flossie but I still remember how much fun to fan a faint flame and that was many years before flaming flamingo and lurid, luscious, lilac lipstick.



Join the “wordle” challenge.  It is much fun and well organized.  Challenge today was to use at least ten of the following words.

Flight Attendant
Flibbertigibbet ((n.) a gossip)

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...

    Wonderfully done! Nothing makes me smile as much as a bit of alliteration — and this was a big bit!
