    • Hey! Haiku noir! That’s a fine compliment – so I’m glad you interpreted it that way 🙂
      And reworded it could be an interesting intro to short noir fiction perhaps.
      Very eerie, these late-night televisions. [Bad shudder….!]

      • Well, you introduced me (and CDHK) to the concept, so if anyone’s the ‘mistress of haiku noir’ (or should that be the femme fatale?), it’s clearly you 😉

        • Mistress of Haiku Noir! Awesome! 🙂
          By the way, I’m hosting CDHK 16/17/18th — fingers crossed! Always a bit of a worry …. o.O

        • Oh you always post a fascinating prompt, with all sorts of trademark Paloma elements added to the mix – so I look forward to seeing what you come up with this time 😉

        • Thanks Blake — have my yearly oncology appointment tomorrow so I’m feeling a bit scattered and stressed — really hoping to make a good prompt despite that. o.O

          Your confidence means a lot —

        • All the best for tomorrow – I’ll be thinking about you 🙂 And hopefully you can use the prompt to distract yourself just a little from some of the stresses.

        • That’s entirely understandable, it must bring back so many memories you never want to revisit. But now you’ve passed the 5-year mark, so I think you should be proud of how much strength you’ve shown – more strength than I can even imagine, frankly, and I’m a fairly imaginative chap 🙂

        • Terrible memories … just the “hospital smell” in a doctor’s office makes me panic.
          But hopefully — this is six years — phew! The visits test a person’s strength though. 😛

          Thanks Blake — I needed the pep talk 🙂

    • Can you believe we hit almost 60 degrees today? Tonight the weatherman reminded us that it’s 50 degrees warmer than last week. Wow!

      And — thought of you this evening – do you remember (last year) our talking about the noisy flocks of grackles that invade every spring? THEY’RE BACK! Saw the first wave today. In a couple of weeks they’ll be screeching up a storm!
