Ragtag Daily Prompt: Jive

20191119_185850“Hey, you! Wake up!” Said King GarGar.  He reached out and gave his wife, Queen Pirouette a gentle nudge.  With her back to him, she curled herself into a tight ball in a sorry attempt to stay asleep.

“I’m sleeping,” she muttered. “Go away.”

“I’m hungry!” His Majesty announced. Slapping Pirouette on the rump, he said, “Fix me some eggs!”

“What’s this jive?” She responded, her voice tinged with anger. “Fix your own damn eggs!”

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.
