Ragtag Daily Prompts: Mend, October 28, 2019

Windmill with vinesMonica slammed her hand, palm-opened on the table top where her husband Karl Snapjaw was drinking his coffee. The bang! she made caused him to jump. Karl tried not to react but when the hot liquid he’d been nursing spilled on his white pant leg, burning his flesh in the process of staining his new garment, he shouted.

“Look what you made me do!”

“That will be the least of your worries, if you don’t pick yourself up and mend that damned windmill on the north forty!” Her voice was so shrill that it made Karl’s ears hurt.

Maxwell just blinked at the couple. “What fools,” he thought absently. Tuning them out, he decided to clean a paw.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
