Play the day away (and Succinctly Yours!)

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! There were some slight disagreements with my kids over the break, but overall the holiday was a wonderful way to reconnect with my family. The weather even cooperated for the last part of the weekend and we spent the majority of our time outside. Nice...

The kids are still off tomorrow, but it's back to school for me (my school district lost spring break and most of our Easter due to the snow storms this winter, but at least I will go back with a smile on my face!)

Now it's time for Succinctly Yours, another writing meme that piggy backs on the idea of Susan of the Stony River Blog. Grandma Goulash posts a picture each Monday and you are to write a 140 character or word story about it. You can also use the word of the day in your post if you wish. This week's word is quaint. Here's this week's picture and my story:


Bessie stared hard, daring me to come closer while the others looked on, and I knew what she was thinking-one false move and you’re mine!  (137 characters)

I'm in such a good mood today that I couldn't resist some humor of my own this evening. I can't wait to read what everyone else came up with!

  3. Haha---being challenged by Bessie. Is the protagonist human or bovine? I wonder if there is a bull out there about be dragged into a relationship. LOL

  4. At first I thought you were Susan of Stony River--and I've been trying to connect. But HEY...this Succinct place is comfortable. it doesn't sport 2,576 entries like some of the poetry One-Shots.

    About you and Bessie: Yep, they were ALL watching you, which should convince you once and forever--it IS all about you--or, in my case...ME! (insert grinning and LOL's here!!)
    PEACE!

  5. Bessie does have that Don't mess with me look in her eyes. I like all these cow-with-attitude SY stories! Good one.

  6. My childhood recollections of playing in cow pastures assure me that they are very docile creatures. They didn't even mind when we shared their salt block. Still, you have a point. Bessie does have that "don't mess with me" look.

  11. Funny, my grands weren't off for Easter. They call is spring break, but it used to coincide with Easter celebration. We keep wandering farther and farther from church and Christianity in schools. Sad

    Loved the shot you caught of the children. Excellent job catching them in motion.

  12. Bessie does look rather menacing doesn't she? :0

    Love the action shot of your children. :)

  14. Now that's mad cow disease. Very funny.
