Twittering Tales – Lo-cal Spirit #twitter-tales


Lou entered his kitchen planning to blow  his diet again with his routine nightly snack.  Vera and the kids were in bed.  The refrigerator slowly opened and a voice spoke.
“LOU, YOU’RE ON A DIET”. Lou rushed out not noticing the string tied to the refrigerator door or his daughter crouched in the dark.

SoCS~ The search for Fab #SoCS #themagicshop


For us chubby folks there’s this ongoing test

To lose that spare padding in looking our best

Every day we face obstacles from gluttonous temptations

Like easy, fast foods always topped with more bacon

Then there’s those sugary sweets that are always around

Just waiting for us to inhale them when no one’s around

We fight everyday to reduce our tummy flab

That continuous struggle in our quest to look fab
