Edit: I must have clicked on something without realizing it, because I didn’t intentionally reblog. But hey, it’s advertisement for the Fabulous Friday Fictioneers, so I’ll just leave it here.

Oh, great story, Rochelle. My grandpa had a VW like that, and I was in that back-back as a kid. Loved it. VW is still not the most ethical of companies, but that shouldn’t prevent us from loving the beetle.

            Most people I know have fond memories of their first automobile. Mine was a used 1971 royal blue Volkswagen Beetle. Fun size—like me.

            My father hated it. “A Jew has no business driving a Nazi-mobile.”

New Project – Elephant Expedition

I’m so horribly busy right now that I can’t write. I can, however, sort elephants and other critters out of many ‘just vegetation’ pictures. This is a very cool, new Zooniverse project, and a great stress reliever. Check it out!

Daily Zooniverse

We have a brand new project that really needs your help – Elephant Expedition
Researchers have set up a network of hidden camera traps throughout the rainforests of Central Africa. They need your help to spot the elephants in the images. Along the way you’ll also run into other interesting rainforest animals like leopards, gorillas, chimpanzees, mandrills, buffalo, red river hogs, antelope, tropical birds, and some cute squirrels; so keep your eyes peeled!

Graveyard Shift

The graveyard shift is the hardest. You sit. You watch. You fight the enemy inside, the one that makes your eyelids droop. Only the hardest, only the best make it through this hour. But a woman’s gotta do what a woman’s gotta do. The reward will be worth it. Continue reading “Graveyard Shift – Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction”
