A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart “C is for Cotton, Concentrators, and Christmas Card Bowl” by Linda Martin Andersen
This month I’m sharing photos and blog posts from A-Z. I’m excited about trying something new. I hope you’ll stop by often throughout the month.
Check out the participants for the April (2016) Challenge. There are plenty to choose from http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/
An ABC Find:
Yesterday, I discovered an ABC Find. While driving, I turned from Ann Street onto Bow Street, where our church sits on the corner. I like that the word “church” completed the ABC find. I never noticed this ABC Find until participating in the 2016 A-Z Blog Challenge; yet I’ve passed by these street signs all my life.
C is for Cotton
I live near cotton fields. I tease that it’s as close to snow-covered fields as southerners usually get. Squint and see if you can imagine snow.
Riddle: What do you call a cotton-picking good friend?
Answer: A cotton harvester.
C is for Concentrator
Two of my family members now require oxygen and concentrators provide it for home use. This model comes with a top attachment that refills small portable cylinders, often referred to as tanks. “E” cylinders, larger ones, are most often delivered by medical suppliers. Patients place these on carts for portable use. Smaller tanks are sometimes carried on the patient’s shoulder. Do you know anyone who requires supplemental oxygen? I’m thankful concentrators are a medical option available for patients who want to remain in their homes.
C is for Christmas Card Bowl
Years ago, when shopping in an antique/vintage shop, I spotted some reduced Christmas merchandise. I fell in love with a set of bowls made from Christmas cards and stitched together. Have you ever recycled cards? What did you make?
What “C” words come to mind for you? I hope you’ll share why they’re special to you.
