A Hot Summer Day

Posted 08-11-2011 at 11:18 AM by caninemom3

[B]It was August and what an August. It was so hot if you went outside it felt like you had stepped into an electric blanket turned up to a million degrees. Lawns were dying. There was little rain.

The somewhat young man had just had a birthday in June. He turned 31. He was going through a tough time. Down on his luck. He had lost his job. His wife had kicked him out. He had no other choice but to go and see if his parents would let him move back in. He and his dad never really got along but remarkably his father agreed that his son should come back home.

Every day after he lost his job even though it was Sahara Desert hot he arose early and walked, going from store to store, from business to business to see if anyone could give him employment. He was tired and feeling very down on himself.

His only joys that Summer were when he would occasionally go out with friends and and hang out. He felt embarrassed that he didn't even...

Why I love my family

Posted 08-02-2011 at 07:57 AM by elf bazaar

On Saturday my mum had the most awful accident at home. She fell top to bottom down the stairs knocked herself out, broke her hand and fractured her lower spine and hip, she banged her head and the blood went everywhere.
Thank god I was in the hall and saw her fall, within 3 minutes I had her in the car and up to the local hospital within the hour she was taken by ambulance to the big hospital in a town half an hour away.
I drove ahead of the ambulance and was there waiting for her when she arrived. I was by her side all the time and when they said she could leave I drove her home, I got her settled and comfortable.
Since then I have done everything in the house possible to make her long road to recovery comfortable.

For the past nine months a family have been living with us, the father had an "accident" and the bathroom floor flooded through to the kitchen below and did some damage. two days later when the loss adjuster had still not...

Reporting for Duty - LB - Elf 2nd Class!!!

Posted 07-27-2011 at 08:30 AM by lauriebear

I noticed I moved up in rank, I was an elf 3rd class now I am an elf 2nd class…. Now how much more responsibilities does this step up entail I ponder… Does it mean I get more cookies from Mrs. Claus? Or do I get to maintain the Christmas tree ornaments from the 2nd tier to the top tier??? Or maybe it means I get to have two choices of hot coco, regular and peppermint… Now I call that a step up! Who knew being an elf 2nd class had so many advantages… Did you? Well I didn’t! What a happy surprise I say, yes indeed it is… Now, maybe this means I need to prepare a speech and let everyone know how awesome their support of me was… I wonder what else is in store for me, if I have become and elf 2nd class what else can I do, the possibilities seem endless…. Here’s to me becoming the 2nd in command of the 2nd in command to the 2nd in command… WOW here I come elf success!!!

A sad day for Brecon, Heaven gained an Angel

Posted 07-26-2011 at 11:17 AM by elf bazaar

Today I write with a heavy heart. I write because I am not sure what else to do, I know probably only a hand full of people here would know where Brecon is let alone visit it. But yesterday we tragically lost our mayor.
He had only recently began his year as Mayor being sworn in at the end of May, within the few short months he became a very dear friend and ally in the daily humorous world which is small town politics.
He had quietly served as a town Councillor for many years and had waited patiently for his turn to play the role as mayor.
From the moment he was sworn in he became a pure breath of fresh air to the town, he set up a "mayors chance" lottery a local lottery with monies raised going to the local cancer hospice. He arranged with the local brewery to have a specially brewed beer to promote the town further afield.
He hosted the most wonderfully fun shindigs in the mayors parlour, cleverly inviting the big wigs from south Wales always...
