Jenny's Cruel Prompt
The Rogue Speaks:
I hate to actually say it, but Jenny Matlock has a mean streak as wide as a skunk's stripe! She has really done it this time! She has brought us to our knees for this Saturday Centus. Oh, the humiliation! Grown-ups composing little songs about fall to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star!!
Well, just suck it up, Centusians! Swallow your pride! We are all creative adults, and we can do this! In fact, I did a couple, neither of which I am particularly proud. But, what the heck! It's only one Saturday out of many, right?
I have hung back long enough, I guess. Please don't judge me too harshly.
In the autumn I am glad
Summer’s heat’s no longer bad.
Later comes the morning light!
Fall makes sleeping a delight!
The best news about autumn today is that Rod no longer has to sleep with one eye opened to make sure I don't sneak out of bed at night and turn the air conditioning down to "icy" so I can sleep without sticking to the sheets with sweat. No matter how quiet I am, 9 nights out of 10, he will hear me, and make an exaggerated sigh, indicating that the electric bill will be HUGE this month! Well, I don't care! Sleeping in comfort is extremely important to me!!!
That's it for today! Time to read all the other offerings!
The painting you see is by John William Godward (1861 - 1922)
