A Photo a Week Challenge: Flying

nancy merrill photography


I love flying. I love traveling and visit new places, and the fastest and easiest way to get somewhere far away is flying. I’ve flown around the world (almost literally). I’ve been to Korea and Europe, the South Pacific and Great Britain. I’ve flown across the United States multiple times. However, I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed flying as much as much sweet little subject for this great family photo shoot. She loves lying on her stomach and flying out her arms and legs. Her mom and grandmother were standing behind me, encouraging her. And I got to experience joy front and center.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

Joelle’s tales:  First Thursday of the month #TMAT120 #writing #prompt for May  

Two on a Rant

Please join in!  I’d love to hear from you!




Welcome to May 4 Today’s prompt is:  Your earliest memory

So that you don’t feel alone in your embarrassment, here’s the story of my earliest memory.


My earliest memory happened around the age of one, before the 2-lane street in front of our home morphed into an 8-lane highway. 

My sister walked with my mother to the local stores, but I was relegated to a stroller.  Later in my life, I’d know the trek spanned 5 blocks that totaled a half mile.   McCrory’s, Sears, and other larger stores were in shopping centers facing each other.  This is where my earliest memory begins.

I remember the sounds of their voices, but I was too young to understand the words.  I can still close my eyes and feel fear.  I still see the wheels…

#BlogTour! #Review – Dreaming of Venice by T.A.Williams (@TAWilliamsbooks) @canelo_co

The Writing Garnet


Find love, friendship and prosecco – in the magical city of Venice.
Life is tough for Penny. A dead end job in a London café, a boyfriend in Australia
(what could go wrong?) and an art career going nowhere. But then Penny is
approached with an extraordinary proposition.
It isn’t going to be easy but, if she can pull it off, she will turn her life around and at long last see the fulfilment of her dream – to visit Venice. And, just maybe, find true happiness with the handsome man of her dreams.

But can dreams come true?

What does TWG think?

Omg, that prologue!!!!! I assumed at the start that ‘Dreaming of Venice’, based on the cover, was going to be a bit candyfloss; soft natured & sweet. How wrong was I! I’ll say it again, omg that prologue!!!!

What an unbelievable way to begin a novel! Williams certainly…

The Blood Detective by Dan Waddell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blood Detective is a British police murder mystery with a genealogy theme, set in London.

Detective Chief Inspector Grant Foster is called to the crime scene of a gruesome murder. The victim had been stabbed through the heart and had his hands severed. During the autopsy a mark on the victim’s chest appeared to be a genealogy search reference number. The police call in Nigel Barnes, genealogist, to help trawl through ancestry data in search of clues.

Barnes uncovers historical evidence in old newspapers of a triple murder trail which mirrors today’s victims, as body number three is found. With the media demanding answers, a suspect is arrested, but Foster believes they have the wrong man, as Barnes digs deeper into the case and the clock counts down for the next victim.

This was a well written and…
