and I went through a few pics I keep on the side,
just in case,
What looks like temporary lodging,
a few men making merry with music and booze;
a nice way to kick off the new year!!
My response is this,
a house seen here in 1903 in what I think was the "Faubourg a M'lasse",
a poor district of Montreal back then.
The wood planks,
the roof incline reminds me of the photo prompt.
But nothing so joyous can have happened there,
though it is merely a judgement on my part.
The men worked hard,
the women did their best to provide the best life possible for their family with what little they had.
Montreal had its fair share of fires
and you'll not be surprised to learn such districts suffered total damages
burning to the ground absolutely everything.
While this is a sad affair,
let it be known that districts,
much like a phoenix,
are reborn from their ashes.
I currently live in South Central,
pretty much the same district,
and it is thriving nowadays,
or trying to.
And the only molasses you can find around here is at your local market,
not like in the old days
when it was unloaded by the barrel!!
I guess I could go on with this topic but...
Would I rather dress up and dazzle you?!?
Would I rather be the hit of the day with a song and a dance number?
Would I rather stay home and gossip about boyz over the phone?
I would rather hug my pillows
and stay in bed!!
But I do still answer my [e]mails and comments!!
Since I feel this lazy,
let me redirect you right away to
where other contributors will entertain you.
I'd like to thank my friend Marilyn for standing in for me for those pics.
let me go back to bed...
This bear needs to hibernate for a [little] while...
That's my ONLY resolution this year.
