The biggest news in my neck of the woods is Henri. The storm was expected to hit here hard on Sunday, but like that crazy relative who decided to drive rather than fly out to visit you and is stopping to see all the sights on the way, Henri made landfall and slowed significantly. He's ambling his way north-west and is expected to take a hard right and actually get here in the afternoon today. If you happen to be in Connecticut or southern New York, ( or Tennessee) my fingers are crossed for you keeping your power and not getting flooded while uncle Henri looks for New England's largest ball of twine.

That said, your Flash challenge this week is: Roadside Attractions! Give me a graphic or 100 words about the quirky locations and I will... tell you that you are awesome!

Big Buddy folk should be at 74% at the end of the day. How are you all doing?

Our long term challenge is Rare pair challenge, take some time and check out the prompts that will fill your creative brains with inspiration!

Sadly, I am not able to link all the wonderful prompts that have been posted in the last week as I cannot fine the mouse for my laptop and legitimately cannot figure out copy, paste or right click on this laptop without it. But if you need more inspiration just left button through the posts here and MAKE MORE WORDS!

Happy Monday to you all!!!

Hoping the storm isn't bad for anyone!
Given the way last week went, I'm not holding out much hope for today. I'm about 8k behind due to multiple circumstances beyond my control and it's irritating the heck out of me.
That said, I'm gonna eat breakfast and see if I can get some editing in before work starts. Boss will be out today and tomorrow, so maybe the day will be 'calm'...

*fingers crossed* for a calm day for you!

I may never get Weird Al's song, "The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota" out of my head now, thanks.

Anyway, I hope that you don't get too much blowback from Henri. I have a friend up in CT as well as one on Long Island and the storm's been all they can talk about. One more bonus to living in the desert, I suppose.

Hahaha - Mads gave me her Mac last night so I could pay her tuition and I couldn't figure out how to scroll down on a webpage. Apparently, you have to use TWO fingers and draaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. Like, how many drugs were they on when they thought that made sense? #notanappleperson

Anyway, I'm in a mood today so I'm going to peace on out of this post before I get nutty(er). <3

I am completely a Windows person, and the laptop is a chromebook and the pad does 'click' but there's no right click, and the address won't even copy for me and.... I was out of my tree after searching for the mouse and the charger and ALL THE THINGS!

IMAGINE if it was a Mac!?! I am so keyboard dependent, I only use the mouse when the program requires. Apple is a hard no for me.

I'm supposed to see rain from 6pm to 6am, and right now the winds are predicted to be pretty tame. I do feel back for the folks who got socked by this.

*hugs* for your moods. May your week get better!

Hahaha - I so totally feel you on this. My kids think I'm nuts because I still use a mouse. Sorry, guys, I'm old.

Yeah, I'm not an Apple person at all. Which brings great amusement to Taylor Tot.

Hoping that it doesn't hit you too hard. But the pics I saw of Nashville this morning were awful.

Hah, my mood isn't a bad one at least. Not super psycho giggly like I was last week, but I'm a little too happy for being at work on a Monday. Even if certain people in this office are doing their level best to wreck it. *super squeezes*

Oh boy, so with you on the computer thing.

I hope Henri either twirls himself out or flicks away before he reaches you! Sending all the vibes!

Me, I'm on the lockdown blues right now, and the allergy I have that affects my throat at this time of year has flared up again too, so I am not at my best.

However, tomorrow is another day, so here's hoping it's better!

I really am to old to learn new shortcuts! TOO OLD!

Henri was relatively uneventful here, it rained most of the night, and that's about all we had, unlike other's that it hit. So I'm grateful.

Lockdown will be over before you know it and my fingers are crossed for a quick allergy season.

Re: Icons for the Flash Challenge
Thank you! I had a lot of fun putting them together. And I'll probably have some more after the first week of October since we'll be road-tripping through a town that has a lot of the "world's largest" type of items.
