Time flies… and memes…

My son turns nine years old this week! The time has flown by. He came into planet earth, right here in the United States, thanks to my good luck, right to me. He has not been a troublesome boy at all, others say, their kids are like him only in dreams! Some facts: He earned his Citizenship belt loop just last week in the scout pack meeting, purple happens to be his sister’s favorite color, he does not behind on his homework (most times), his latest interest – creatures that fly – birds!!, his fingers move like magic over the piano, eating healthy food and studying the nutrition contents on every package are things he does, he loves to play board games.
P.S. if you notice, my little post about my son also includes all the words from Sunday Whirl as well as the prompt from Sunday Scribblings.

This week’s challenge word: nimble and the photo along with my entry is below (138 characters – whew, made it!) 
Jack was nimble and quick as he jumped over the doorstep. He
said, “”Whew, made it” and with a tip of his hat, off he headed for

Note: As you can see in other meme entries, I was inspired by Jack and his nimbleness – I actually forgot the 140 characters rule and wanted to combine all the memes together and came up with the entry below

My entry towards Sunday Whirl, Sunday Scribblings, One Single Impression

“‘Jack be nimble, Jack be quick’, went the familiar words of the old rhyme”,
so Jack wrote into his journal, as he dipped his pen into the purple ink of his inkpot.
“I hope I will not happen into trouble again, I hope Lady Luck is with me this time.
Here on planet Dream, a light year away from my home Earth…”, a homesick tear made a blot,
as he continued to write, “where I did fly out to regain my health; I should not laze and lag,
– this trip that I won, from a hapless citizen, in a game of Scrambled States;
I should use it well, I should be able to brag,
“Jack is nimble, Jack is quick”, when I return to earth to play with my mates”
(inspired also by the photo at Succinctly Yours)

One more entry for Sunday Scribblings, One Single Impression
The inkpot lay forgotten, hidden in the dark corners of the shelf
“Will I not be dipped into? Will I not be of use anymore?”
Little did it know that its former owner,
He lay forgotten too, on his bed, ill-health having overtaken his self

She stood with a smile, hands folded, and calmly faced him. He sought a way out with words, an escape from her. She let him have his say, for little did he know, that as her folded hands embraced his shadow, her great aunt’s magic bound him to her forever.

  2. Very cute SY story. Your Jack is very spry. Happy, happy birthday to your son, turning 9. I loved the 9 and 10-year old stage of all of my boys–still innocent and carefree before the angst and raging hormones of the teen years hit hard.
