It tires me out some these last few years, but I keep plugging away at keeping an eye out around our jurisdiction. Guess that would be the same as the neighborhood. But you just can’t keep an old soldier down. I spent too long as a sort of watcher for the law. Don’t want those hood-lums coming into our jurisdiction. Money is not what it once was for our local cops. Gets tighter and tighter, so I help as I can. Many of the “law” folks have suggested that I sit out a couple of years to rest up a bit, but I respond with a “not on my life, no, siree, not as long as you fellows and gals are having to look the bullets in the face. I can take a bit of surveillance over for you.”
In fact, while I was out on my motor scooter, I took note of the signs. Cow’s milk, the mother of all living (almost) is now over four dollars a gallon. Even at that she could hide her head in shame at the way the liberated hens have influenced the government. Wow! A hen now gets more than half a dollar per egg. Some of these women’s movements will make one take notice!
I was running lucky when I went to fill up. Only $8.64 for a topout on my tank. That’ll run my little SUV wannta-be for quite a while. Not sure where the oil is coming from, but it seems to be about the only bargain this week at least.
Oh, by the way, I chose to do this article based on a suggestion from Linda G. Hill for a SoCS topic. She suggested to use any word in which “dict” was used. Came out just right for me today seein’ as I had just came in from a surveillance watch around my jurisdiction. I was just supposed to sit down and write what comes out. So there. That was it.
Written for https://lindaghill.com/category/stream-of-consciousness-saturday/ Go to Linda’s and read more “dict” results.
And you wrote it yourself, instead of having someone else take dict-ation!
I accept your rebuke with all Christian charity. It would have been much better if I had called the little girl down the block and asked her to come help me. I could have told her my story and asked her to use her own words. I probably did not even need to dictate. But I could have shared the glory, so to speak.
My goodness! I didn’t mean my comment as a rebuke, but as an affirmation!
Oh, Linda, now I don’t know whether you are pulling my leg or I’m pulling yours! I was just trying to remain in my “character.” Sometimes I wind up and don’t come down gracefully. Now, speaking as me, you always affirm, educate, and aspire me. Thanks much.
Giggling, down here in Texas. Ain’t life in the cybr-world grand?
Two fifteen-year-olds could have come to fist-a-cuffs.
And your diction was perfect! So glad we have you there to back up the boys in blue!!
Thank you. I know they do appreciate my having their back.
Prices are going up everywhere. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your jurisdiction.
Thank you for the comment. I do have fun spoofing some subject. Give me a topic and let me spew. Smiling at you.
You are amazing, Oneta. I’m not far behind you in age, and I feel much the same. I may not have the strength or endurance I once did, but I’m not giving up what I believe in. I’d love a ride on that SUV wannabe. My husband tells me I’m crazy on wheels. Put me behind a grocery cart and I can do anything.
We can still handle our own jurisdictions, can’t we? Even if the sphere of our influence gets rather small. But one does have to have manners to remain in charge of the grocery cart.
I’ll try to remember that 😍
At least I didn’t need a dictionary. And I love your sense of humor.
Thanks, Hat. You don’t even need a dictionary to check on my diction. 😀
Stop! This could be addicting!
Ha. I give in. 😀
This all is very inspiration ….. thx !
It’s a spoof written in humor. No way am I serious!
Love it! It came out good – real good!
