Oh, heavenly! What a gorgeous shop! My annual Ladies’ High Tea is coming up. They always came in lacy dresses and fancy hats, and admired my decoration before finding their seats.
I’m the third generation who inherited this exquisite Vintage Royal Albert Heirloom Bone China Tea Cups & Saucers, plus serving plates, and cream and sugar set. It’s delightful to look at them in my China cabinet. It’s equally thrilling to keep them alive by using them annually.
Ah, I spotted a center piece! The ladies will enjoy the Tea Party! After all, it’s a fund raising activity for the missionaries.

Daily Prompt: Tea
“Cities are getting better in designating areas for skateboarding, and mountain biking. Clubs could organize competitions.”
“Yeah, I remember the days when No Skateboarding signs were everywhere.”
“True, I remember those signs! Some kids rode their skateboards and looped up and down on my driveway.”
“Mountain biking has the same problem! City kids are not close to the biking trails. It’s hard for them to practice!”
“It’s dangerous for them to ride the bikes and hop around on the streets.”
“I was so please that the city council listened and open this mountain biking park! My daughter is in competition!”

I grew up in Hong Kong
Islands surrounded by water
Taking the ferries was a daily matter
Vehicles went through tunnel under sea
When I came to Portland, Oregon
I lived by Willamette River
Crossing bridges was a must when going places
Then I came to Seattle, Washington
University was near Peugeot Sound
Walking on waterfront was always pleasant
Taking a trip to Floating Bridge was a treat
Now I live in Southern California
Live by a lake within walking distance
Beaches are just thirty minutes’ drive away
I am thankful to live close to the water all my life
I love to go rowing boat
Weather is not the matter
May the day be sunny or cloudy
Windy or even stormy
Having you in the same boat
I can go anywhere, everywhere
We had a rough day at the sea
Almost dangerous to manage
Our hearts were in touch
Our hands were in synch
Same spirit and same strength
Your encouraging words to me
Mine to you, all the way through
We strived until the storm passed
A day I will forever remember
The storm brought us closer
I love to go rowing boat
When you are with me

“Hey Mike, do you see that small island?”
“Yea, I flew over these Pacific islands last year, but didn’t see this small one.”
“The earth crust must be itchy and made a wiggling twist. The flat bottom of the sea bulged up a little belly.”
“The edge around the island is green. The coral and algae must have grown. I heard that the Marine Biologists are interested in studying this newest volcano and the marine life under the sea. To raise funds for this project, they bring in tourist for diving tours.”
“Oh, yeah! Is that house a tour center?”

Where is he? We are supposed to meet at six this evening.
I went to his nephew’s birthday party at his house last night. His mom was there. His five siblings, spouses, and their kids; aunts, uncles and friends were all over the house.
They were laughing and talking with each other. I was the only stranger. No one came to talk to me. I didn’t know how to break the ice.
My family has mom, pop, little brother and I. How should I have mingled with large family?
I want to talk about what his family expects of me!

I still remember the day I came home from the war. Being in the Navy for five years, there was no day that I didn’t think of my Mama and my darling Elsie. I looked at their pictures every time I got a moment, kissing them a thousand times. Never knew if I could make it home to see them again!
The Almighty is good. The war ended, and we came back to California. Mama and Elsie were waiting for me on this dock. I couldn’t run fast enough to hold them.
That was the best day in my life!

Imagine 150 years ago, ships coming into this bay in a pitch-black night! They couldn’t see if they were hitting rocks or anything in shallow water. What happened if you lived in that house? A ship might have collided into it.
Well, a farmer lived in that house. He hung a kerosene lantern on the side of the barn to protect his farm house. Later the government put a lens lantern on top of a wooden post. Years have gone by, eventually the government owns that property, and changed it into a lighthouse.
Don’t you think that farmer was clever!

“It’s good! The wait wasn’t too long.”
“Yes, we got here in time to beat the crowd. The after work traffic is getting worse. Every minute counts, especially on Fridays.”
“I had a hectic week at work. Thank God the weekend is here!”
“I look forward to the weekend too.”
“I like the way you set your hair, now I can see more of your beautiful face!”
“Oh, thanks, just wanted to try something different! Did you notice that gentleman there? He used to come with his wife! He is here alone. I wonder what happened to his wife!”
