Short’s Shorts blog for January 7th, 2023

Hello everyone and Happy New Year,

I’m looking forward to a better year for all of us and I’m sure the chickens are breathing a sigh of relief right about now. With the hike in prices of chicken breasts, making it unrealistic for most of us to buy them, I’m sure that many chickens will live to see another sunrise.

The weather is cooperating, for now, lots of rain, but not much snow. But I maintain that the time for snow has passed. Christmas has come and gone. However, I am looking forward to St. Valentine’s Day in February. I’m a romantic at heart and apart from that, I love a reason to celebrate…something to anticipate. Send me your stories of heartbreak, unrequited love, holiday romance, wedding, etc. for a chance to be published.

I am joined this week by Teri-Lyn Smethurst and her story, titled “Comedy In Error”, about an unfortunate communication breakdown. Then a tale about superstition and how to blend it into your life, titled “A Midnight Discovery” by Dian Bowers. (Good wishes for a speedy recovery Dian).

Then Tammy Tipler-Priolo’s introspective, titled “I talk to myself”. Haven’t we all? (More good wishes for a speedy recovery Tammy) And then, the closing chapter of my Christmas story, titled “The Blessing”. Also, our local poet Mike Madill is featured on my home page, with his debut book of poems, titled “The Better Part of Some Time”.

Have a good week and don’t forget, your comments as always are appreciated.
