Nfinity x 3 Security

Hello Visitors from the Blogging from A to Z April 2018 Challenge. This post is for the weekly ABC Wednesday. You can find the letter J post for the April Challenge here.

Their giggles burst into guffaws and laughs straight from their guts.

"Oh my, oh my, oh my," Agathe the Aardvark said, tears running down her face as she stomped her front right paw. Judge Jennifer the Jack Rabbit bounced about the meadow while Bingo Byrd, Edwina the Egret, and Filemon the Flying Squirrel fluttered and soared above them. It was a wonder they didn't bump into each other and fall into one symphony of joy.

Finally the friends hiccupped their madness into happy sighs, as they situated themselves in blissfully relaxed poses on the grass.

"What do you think about them for Winnie's and Thomas' wedding?" asked Agathe. The aardvark was the wedding organizer and today she had the help of several of her friends to decide the matter of security. She read the brochure out loud again, "Nfinity x 3 Security. We offer guard, personal protection, private investigation, and bail bond services. No job too small, but only so big."

"They look too cute to halt an animal with a don't-you-dare command or a sweet jab to the left," said Bingo, eyeing the photo on the brochure.

"Let me see that photo again," Judge Jennifer said, leaning closer to the brochure. "A narwhal, a nyala, and a Napoleon mastiff.

"A bar joke without even trying," said Filemon. "Don't even need a punchline!"

The friends peeled into laughter again.

"I like the looks of them," said Edwina. "Honest smiles. Bingo's right. They look like they can't hurt a flea."

"These guys are good. I've seen them in action. Mellow, easy-going on the outside, but they put and keep everything and everyone in place that needs to be." Agathe pointed to the narwhal. "His name is Nehemiah. Look at that horn of his."

"Nobody would want to mess with him," said Filemon. Judge Jennifer whistled. "No M'am!" piped Bingo. Edwina added, "No Sir!"

Agathe continued. "This is Noah the Nyala. His horns are nothing to kid around either. And this sleepy looking Napoleon mastiff is Nalia. Toughest girl around. And, smart! The three are equal partners, but the other two let Nalia do the heavy thinking."

Agathe looked questioningly at each of her friends. Each nodded in answer.

"All right. It's agreed," said Agathe. "Nfinity x 3 Security will provide security services at the wedding."

"I wonder if they all have sweethearts," said Bingo. Her friends all giggled.

Jane Austen, Jellyfish Expert?


"Are not these jellyfish simply darling?" asked Jane Austen, Action Doll, of her audience. Some
nodded in agreement while others looked doubtful.

"We only began calling these lovely things jellyfish in 1796, but they have been around for at least 500 million years," The Jellyfish Expert said. "Some of my colleagues believe that they are as old as the dinosaurs, possibly older. Imagine that!"

Jane Austen, Industrial Inspector?



Jane Austen, Action Doll, writes:
Industrial inspector is merely another name for quality assurance inspector. I shall not be one for long. All this climbing in long dresses is rather cumbersome. Not to say quite dangerous.
This job, however, is better than the alternative—an ichthyologist. Imagine me with icky fish. No thank you.

Jane Austen, Hula Dancer?


As you know by now, I am not shy about trying different forms of dancing," said Jane Austen, Action Doll. "Exotic dancing was well and good, but after awhile I found no joy in it. Hula dancing of the Sandwich Islands is more to my liking. I do love wearing the fragrant flowers."

A Painted Chair

Hello Visitors from the Blogging from A to Z April 2018 Challenge. This post is for the weekly All Seasons. You can find my posts for the April Challenge here.
I'm pooped. Happily, though.

I just came inside from painting that chair you see in the photo. I've been wanting to paint an artsy chair ever since I saw a bunch of painted chairs done by artists for a local fundraiser in town. That was over 10 years ago. By the time I mustered the confidence to consider painting a chair, the  group hosting the fundraiser stopped it.

Last night I decided if it didn't rain today, I would paint the old broken redwood chair against the fence that has been wearing the fake evergreen bough since last Christmas. So, I did.

Today is gorgeous. Sunny. A  bit of a breeze. Warm enough to peel off hat and sweater as the painting progressed. I hoped that Molly the Cat would hang out with me, but the rocking chair claimed her. That's okay, every so often a bee buzzed by to see what was what.

I haven't decided if the chair is done. I'm wondering whether to paint polka dots or decoupage fabric to the frame. I do want to find a spot for the chair in the "meadow". Any suggestions—where to put it or whether it needs polka dots or something else?
