Safety for all

I haven’t wrote anything in awhile. I guess because my mind was on other ventures and probably physical issues also. I will not continue grow as a writer, unless I write everyday. I will write something everyday and try to post a few times a week.

This article was published Friday September, 28 in the, Charles County newspaper, Maryland Independent. You can find it on page A9 in the ‘Letters to the editor’ section.

Hope my article, Safety for all, interests you. It’s about more direction needed in some of my prayers. Contact me if you can’t read it and I will send you a copy of what I sent to the editor.

Of course I was excited to see that my effort was published. I love being a budding writer and my baby steps in the photography field inspire my legs to be more active.

After it was printed, I noticed a mistake in the last paragraph. Let me know if you see it.

 A poll just for you

A poll just for you

I’m one of the people that will stop in the middle of the road, pick up a turtle and help it across the street. I know dead animals will feed other animals, but I still get a little grossed out, when I see them laying around.

The other day, I picked up a turtle and turned to carry it into the direction it was heading. I noticed, it was heading towards a barren field, with hardly any vegitation or shad. It was coming from a plush cool extremely bountiful menu of food for the turtle.

Which side of the road would you set him down on.

 

* barren field

or

* turn it around

Random thoughts: Saturday’s Ice Cream

Saturday’s Ice Cream

 

Saturday was not a day of rest and relaxation, but it was a day of fun and friends.

 

For close to a year now, I’ve been a member of a Charles County, MD. writers group called, Life Journeys Writers Guild (LJWG). From 2pm to 5pm on Saturday, July the 29th, close to sixty LJWG members were in attendance to our Big Quarterly meeting.

It was held at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf, MD., which houses our Independent League baseball team, the Blue Crabs. We occupied the luxurious Legends Club, overlooking the field; with laughter, good finger food and two great speakers. By the way, we are always looking for new members.

The Blue Crabs had a game after our meeting and those who wanted to watch it were given free tickets. About a dozen of us stayed and enjoyed the game.

It was a Star Wars theme, and we enjoyed all the characters that were prodded out for our amusement. Our fearless leader, Yvonne Medley, was full of laughter as she guided us to a great day. You can see her hiding behind our collection of writers, next to the big blue and white critter called, Pinch.

Pinch and the group

 

Around the fourth inning, I set out on a very important mission. I braved the crowds by myself in search of the perfect ice cream cone. My first stop was the rest room, then I walked past the alcohol vendor, but I was distracted by an image of immense satisfaction and missed the first ice cream spot.

The distraction, six Redskinnets ‘The First Ladies of Football’.

 

I’m a Washington Redskin fan, so the colors of burgundy, white and gold stand out. The unexpected vision of beauty momentarily froze me in place. However, it didn’t take long to move my feet and get a closer look at those colors.

 

As usual I like to get right in the middle of things, confirmed by the photo below. I might be old, but I ain’t dead yet. Can you tell by my grin? I hung out and flirted with these scantily clad young ladies, till I ran out of lies to tell them about my greatness.

After I bought their personally signed calendar, I turned and went back to the group. The guys were secretly giving me kudos, while the women of the group ribbed me about my purchase. Needless to say, I forgot all about the ice cream and had to go back later to get it.

Lately, I’ve been wondering why I haven’t got a like or comment from any of my Facebook post lately. Nothing from the past three weeks, specifically on my personal Facebook page. Somehow, by accident, I set my privacy settings to one person. Big mistake and they never liked or commented anyway. Too funny.

 

As I try to get my writing career off the ground, a few people, who know more about this business than me, suggested I take few steps.

 

• First: start a blog – I did that a year and a half ago. In April of 2017, I turned my blog into my website called, ‘From my Head to Yours’ jfmcdonaldjr.com

 

• Second: write and post at least once a week. I do that also. However, in April when I published my book of poetry, ‘Twilight to Son Shine’, I slid away from writing. I was trying to promote my book and of course myself to gain sales and notoriety. Lately, I’ve got back into writing about my ‘hats’ and ‘three words’ among other categories. While doing that, I try to write and post in one of these categories five times a week.

 

• Third: start a Facebook business page – that was accomplished a month or so ago. I’m gathering more friends, so I can add more likes to my page. Again, I’m trying to brand myself as a writer.

 

Please remember I’m new to the writing field, and I love it immensely. I’m anxious to learn and I relate all these suggestions as gold to my newly chosen career. So if I overload your inbox with a high number of post and it bums you out, I apologize. Please bare with me, oh and please buy my book at the link below.
