A to Z Challenge: Letter D

I'm playing catch up for a couple of days since my computer had a mind of its own for a day or so. For the month of April, I'll be posting retro facts from the 70s and 80s, organizational helps, a bit of Cherokee trivia, and some fun for those who pass this way on their A to Z journey. I'll be posting a writing prompt, either a word or a picture for anyone willing to participate.

Go retro - DIRTY DANCING

The all time favorite 80s dance movie. It was The Time of Our Lives. With 142,638,038 hits, this video is a must! 

Organize - DIY
Do it yourself! There are so many great sites out there to find exactly what you need to make your life a more pleasant place. Check out Life With 4 Boys for 10 great DIY organizing tips. 

Cherokee Trivia - The DEER Clan. One of the 7 clans in the Echota Tribe

Want to know more about the Deer Clan? Journey to Native American Antiquity. Great site. 

Writing Prompt - DECEPTION
Write three sentences using the theme of deception and use the word only once. Here's mine.....

Deception came easy for her. She enjoyed lying, and knowing he would always wonder what happened to her, she got on the train. Her note had simply stated, I am dead. 

Your turn!

  1. I dated a girl in the 80's who wanted to watch that movie every time we were together. I got pretty sick of it.

    Dropping in from A to Z Challenge. It's my first year participating.
