Six Word Saturday

my Six Words:
Only one is the birthday girl

 [click on any picture for larger size viewing]
Mrs. Jim's birthday was on January 1st.  KP and her daddy made the nice chocolate cake for her.  The three of them, KP, Billy, and Karen, stayed in our home and the other grandparents' home for almost three weeks.

On January 2nd Mrs. Jim had her right foot operated on for bunion surgery.  This involved straightening her big toe and shortening the second toe.  A week later, she had a cast put on.  You might notice that the colors are her purple and yellow LSU school colors.

But the bandage was rubbing her suture area so this Friday we returned for the cast to be removed and refitted.  The second one fits much better.  It is colored all purple with no yellow. 

Her cast is to remain on for three weeks, starting Wednesday this week.  So it will come off the 29th of January.  While there at the ortho doctor she also rented a scooter to help her become more mobile.  I may show it here at a later date..

Personal Challenge Poem -- A limerick, "Bad day at the golf course"


Bad day at the golf course;
a limerick

Somebody had borrowed his wedge
Fine golfer he, chaos did edge
His keen direction had winged
Spoil his day, putter he flinged**
Subtle end, club's on his car ledge

I'm linked today with Real Toads, The Personal Challenge # 1 for 2014
My challenge was to use these ten words from D.H. Lawrence's The Song of a Man Who Came Through (I could have used only nine but I may have fudged on one [which?]):
*direction, *wedge, *chaos, *winged, *fine, *spoil, *borrowed, *subtle, *somebody, *keen *

**Note: Poet's license here, "flung" would be grammatically correct.  I also would have liked to use "spoilt" instead of "spoil" at the beginning of this same line.

Succinctly-Yours 146

Elv was in trouble. He had promised in exchange for guitar lessons that he would sing "Hound Dog" song for his master. Dratted music theory.
