100years since day WW1 ended.

This year 11th of November the date 100years ago in 1918 that World War One ended, falls on a Sunday; therefore today is Remembrance Sunday. Like last year there will be 2 minute silences around the country. I’m wearing British legion poppy earrings.

Remembrance Sunday: 12th November 2017  

This week on Wonderwall360 instragram, I having been posting images of the poppy cascade and other poppy displays in Keswick.

For this week’s #6wordstory challenge for prompt darkness, I have written a story about the world wars. The world wars were times of blood shred, tragedy and therefore darkness. Theoretically, the darkness of WW1, ended 100years ago today, bringing hope: However, those who had died during the war; were still dead and therefore families still mourned. WW1 was meant to be the war to end all wars but, of course it was not.

Darkness:

1918:

Dawn.

Mourning.

History.

Repeated:

1939.

Loch Ness Monster! — witchlike

Just read on witchlike that, it was on this day 22nd August (several centuries ago in 565, that the Loch Ness monster was first spotted. I have just bought a t-shirt of Nessi with a Real Madrid top like Messi, so it was a big coincidence to read this.

“From ghoulies and ghosties And long-leggedy beasties And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us.” – Scottish Prayer Do you believe in Nessie, the legendary serpent that is said to dwell in the great loch of the Scottish Highlands? If so, you may owe your belief to an Irish monk […]
