Save the Whales

The Ady Gil was recently added to the protest fleet
of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
The vessel, which runs on low emission, renewable fuels
will be used to scare off Japan’s Antarctic whaling fleet.
When interviewed about what renewable fuel
will be available in the Antarctic,
the vessel’s skipper replied,
“Whale oil, of course.”


This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55.
If you want to know what the hell that means visit g-man.
The challenge is on.

While I am sure whale oil would work, I very much doubt the fine folks at the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society would even sniggle at my attempt to poke fun at them. Click on the Ady Gil link above for the whole story. Be sure to listen to the spooky music intended to scare the Japanese whaling fleet. Good luck to these people in their efforts to save the whales.

Spell Czech

During the coarse of righting, spell Czech can bee vary important. Know won likes two have a story published that is full of misspelled words. Eye pride myself on my spelling as eye am sure many of ewe due. That is why eye have carefully checked this document too make sure beyond a shadow of a doubt this peace was perfect.

Now that is knot to say that everything eye have written hasn't had a mistake now and then. After all, wee can't expect to catch every little detail. Eye mien any won can overlook sum small error and should bee forgiven.

Won should bee cautioned, however, on to much reliance on spell Czech. Many times eye have scene spell Czech sea a word that is spelled correctly, butt it isn't used in the proper context. Yew no watt eye mien. When ewe leave the "Y" off the end of "they" butt spell Czech still says it is all rite to use. Doesn't even sea it as a misspelling and their yew are with an embarrassment on you're hands.

Fortunately four me, eye have spell checked this story and know words were found too bee misspelled. Good news all. Thee system works.

Take Pause

Words rattle in the mind
like the tail of a coiled snake
waiting to strike.
It's the first defense,
this effort to lash out
with deadly swiftness.
The assault meant to bite deeply
and discharge the verbal toxin
upon its prey.
The rattle quickens,
sending surges
through the thoughts.
The coils tighten,
yearning for release.
The rattle warns,
but only one can hear.
Should the strike hit home,
the damage will be fatal.
Organize the words.
Relax the coils.
Let all survive.

in Jupiter Island, FL.
