My Take – Fandango’s FOWC and FDDA

Fandango’s One Word Challenge today is, “hunter.” And Fandango’s Dog Days of August (the last one) is “your plans for September are…” (I bet we all write the same thing.

Picture Hunters capture moments

Here is a flower I captured.

My plans for September are the same as they have been for March, April, May, June, July, and August. Order what we need/want online and have it delivered or pick it up at the curb. Drive and escort Auntie to her doctor appointments (mostly normal checkups) – She will be 100 in two months. And drive myself to doctors. If I didn’t have doctors to see I would not be out at all it seems. Occasionally we go to the Braums drive-thru and get an ice-cream cone. Or one time we (just hubby and me) went to Sonic and ate our hamburgers in the drive up spot. We hope to get a few more driving trips in, but can’t stay out too long, because we will only use public restrooms if there is an emergency.

As time goes on, and the curve is flattened, I hope to be going out and have actual coffee with friends? I hate to walk stores and it’s too hot still. But I will keep writing my 750 words, hopefully blogging and continuing my anti-racism education and action.


Week 35, 2020 52Frames- Common Object

Week 35’s challenge was to photograph a common object. #52frames_commonobject

TITLE: Coffee

DESCRIPTION: What better common object than the can of ground coffee that gets me going in the morning. I tried editing more than crop and auto adjust color and it just didn’t work. It’s better like this, “like Folgers in a cup.” I used my canon this time. My steadiness is getting better. Still needs work.


My Take – Fandango’s FOWC and FDDA

I’ve only recently given into two of Fandango’s prompts. It started after I was told about . The goal is to just write freely about what is on your mind or what you want to say. Some days I had no problem, but 750 words is a lot for me. So then I decided that maybe some prompts would help and remembered that Fandango had a word prompt. So it takes me a while to type 750 words, but I can also be creative at the same time. But that didn’t work so well today. ;D

The #FOWC word is “covered” and the #FDDA muse is “your best job ever.” So I decided I would combine the two.


My best job ever was working for Aesbus. It is a family owned business. I was a full time employee of Aesbus with benefits etc, and we were assigned to projects as contractors for other companies. I worked there for eight years before I retired.

My employment covered a lot of different responsibilities. I was assigned to work with the technical writers for the server division at Hewlett Packard. (I was there when we transitioned from Compaq to HP, and Carly Fiorina came and walked down the halls and everyone was given clappers or some such to greet her.)

I love troubleshooting and I was also the technical point person between the client (HP), our contract writers, and other company’s contract writers. Yes, there were lots of issues working as a contractor, but I (mostly) succeeded in getting everyone to respect my work.

I was the software expert (MS Word, and a single sourcing program called AuthorIT). I created the templates, managed the database, edited the books, and trained the writers.  It was fun, until it wasn’t any more and time to retire!
