⌗AtoZ challenge, April 20th 2019, letter R

Here is my contribution to the A to Z Challenge of April 2019.
This is the first time I am participating in this challenge, so we'll see if I have the stamina to complete the whole month !

I am also, very ambitiously, writing for the April NaNoWriMo ! So the challenge is
twofold !! But I'm behind in the NaNoWrite, 1500 words out of 10 000 because I'm concentrating on research and building bridges with my contacts.

Hang on to your horse and enjoy the ride. And good luck to all my fellow participants.

If you would like to more more about the A to Z challenge or join in the future go here
In keeping with Jayden R. Vincente's post, I hope to catch up my Retardiness, Respond to more comments and Read more blogs this week. But I won't stop either after April 30th. I will not Rest from writing, blogging and Revisiting ! Hang on in there, 8 days to go.

R is for Robot

He was their son.
Why didn't they want
him anymore. They said
he needed to be repaired.

But his parents answered : 
" We want a new one,
the latest model ".
Why couldn't they keep two ?

They cast him aside.
Left him on a heap pile.
He felt sad and afraid.
Would nobody come to his aid ?

He met new friends.
They became his family.
They united and fought
the humans for their rights.

Brilliant sunshine today in Toulouse. Blue skies all round. The wind that had swept away the petals of my white and yellow tulips has given way to a soft breeze. The purple ones are still blooming and closing, asleep at night. My yellow roses are coming out one by one.
Tomorrow, I'm making a red fruit topping cheesecake in the morning. In the Afternoon, my husband and I are participating in a Clean-Up of the banks of the Garonne at Gagnac-sur-Garonne to prevent more trash from falling into the river and being carried 200 km West to the Atlantic.
The Canal du Midi 
that gets its waters from the Garonne and links the Mediterranean with the Atlantic : from Narbonne to Bordeaux. It flows through the heart of Toulouse, 
a few hundred yards from the Garonne.


  1. Hi Susan - thanks for coming over to Positive Letters - good to see you there, especially as I'm not doing the A-Z this year - it's fun and you'll meet lots of new blogging friends.

    It's lovely weather here too - and wonderful to read you're doing a clean-up of the River Garonne ... you might like to join #WAWTB - We are the World Blogfest ... here's a link to the start of it two years ago ... but Damyanti will add you to the list - perhaps for May, if you can't do Friday ... mine are an eclectic selection.

    Apologies for the length of this ... I tried to find your email - but am not that technical and flunked out! I also have followed you .. but for some reason Blogger has (long since!) dropped my image - why I've no idea.

    A peaceful Easter ... and enjoy the satisfaction of cleaning up the river tomorrow - cheers Hilary

    1. Hello Hilary, Happy Easter. Thank you for coming over. I think all my explanation paid off ! Thank you for the link. I have added it to my favorites and check it out tomorrow. Your photo appears ok here. Is it your google photo ? You can have a different one for blogger if you change it in your settings. Thanks to the AtoZ I am learning my way around Blogger and Wordpress and think I will be keeping both.
      Don’t worry about long comments here. I love writing letters and receiving them. So I guess blogs have replaced snail mail !
      All the best
      Susan B.

  2. Great that the Robots could get together!! That was a twist I did not expect!! Catching up with AtoZ reading as its a Sunday! Thank you so much! :-)

  3. Hello Susan. Thanks for coming by and reading my horror story.
    Oh sad robot story. I hope you’re enjoying your foray into the A to Z challenge. I used to do it but don’t blog enough these days.

    Toulouse eh. My husband and I want to do one of those boat hire trips down to the Med. Might come off.

    Best, Denise
