Full  prompt here

The 11th Possibility is the idea that, regardless of data to the contrary, something unexpected and outside the realm of ordinary thought is always potentially around the corner.

“A coin is flipped 10 times, and in each instance lands on either heads or tails.  But even after the normalcy displayed by the first 10 flips, the result of the next flip is still unknown.  The coin could turn into a bird and fly away.  The coin could land perfectly on its ridged edge.  The coin could dissolve upon landing.  It could defy gravity and remain stuck in the air.  This is the 11th Possibility.”

Ten times out of ten, he would have bent that foil case back and simply bitten into his pineapple tart. The 11th possibility was that the tart would shoot out of the case, describe a perfect parabola in the air and land, right side up, in his mug of coffee.

The text on that mug? Simply the icing on the 11th possibility cake!

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

La Cavalerie. We had been going to stay the night here, there’s both a cheese France Passion (we are in Roquefort country) and a CCP Aire. It’s a lovely little town. However with last night’s warning of tonight’s address from M. Macron… we are covering more ground in expectation of imminent travel restrictions. Just called… Continue reading October 28, 2020 at 12:31PM

Seeing some sensational autumn colours on this drive but finding it hard to capture what with all the bouncing, twisting and turning. Not to mention the crappy IG camera facility. #livereportingfromtheroad #france #autumn2020
