The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#1111]

I'm about 75% sure we are adopting a dog tomorrow that we just saw at the Animal Shelter.  He's part German Shepard and part Great Dane--about as big as that there horse.  Not the way I expected to spend my twilight years, looking after a small horse.  But sometimes life just sneaks up on you.

I don't know what it's like to live in a house without any sort of animal-buddy, be it a small horse or a big snail. This, life sneaking up on you, I think you're going to enjoy it. :)

We've had hermit crabs, a snake, 3 rats [sweetest things in the world but they don't live long enough]. I've never had a dog, so I figure it's about time. I'll let you know what happens.
