Saturday Centus -

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to week sixty-three of Saturday Centus.

And...

...I'm crabby. This whole no-internet debacle has made me mean (er)...

So...

...it's gonna be a shake up week.

I'm sorry.

If Momma ain't happy, ain't...

Okay. Never mind.

The prompt this week is:

"...I'm not getting any younger..."

Cheerful, right?

And to make it even cheerier, let's try a serious word slashing. Yeah. That will be perfect.

For this weeks challenge, in addition to the five words of the prompt, you can use UP TO 25 additional words. Any style of writing...but no pictures. Tell the tale with your vast word allowance only.

Hello?

Are you still there?

Can you hear me now?

Yes. I said 25 words PLUS the 5 words of the prompt.

And...

Please try to visit as many of the other links as possible. If you get a chance, perhaps you can visit the last five or so from last weeks challenge as well.

Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

E-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

Love these short ones! I already had a post ready for the Ice Cream Socials and added Centus to the beginning. Sorry for breaking the rules:@)

Yeowee, you are downright scary when you're crabby and for a word count hog like me, this is challenging and tough !

Feel better and watch out Mr. Jenny !

Yeah, well I hate the electronic stuff too, when it craps out, but that's no reason to take it out on us! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Bring it on, sister! WE can handle anything!!

There is enough in the world to make us all cranky...add tech issues and it can push us over the edge!!!!

I have to admit that I was happy to see it was a quick one this week cause I'm on the run... not from the law or anything... just to a housewarming party:-) Wanted to get this in cause I try to blog once a day & participation in this challenge is usually my Sat post:-)
I'll be back to read some later, hopefully a lot since they will be short!!

Sue said...

Not only am late, but I screwed up!

Sorry....

I'll do better next time.

Hi Jenny,
I wanted to enter this weeks because it so fit in with what I'd written but, I couldn't tell it all in those few words 25 +
I put a link to you at the bottom so that anyone interested in reading your Centus can join in, too.

Love taking part in it, but, inner soul speak inspiration couldn't stick to the plan this week LOL

Bren (entered it as you advised in email) thank you so much.
