Frank Rizzo

Frank Rizzo was the a mayor of Philadelphia from 1972 – 1980.  From what I remember you either loved him or hated him and this was divided mainly on race lines. Click here for an article in the NY Times or his Facebook page that is providing some history or this larger than life man.

While at a stop sign I saw this man sizing up Mr. Rizzo.

Eternal

For last weeks WP Photo Challenge Twinkle I posted a picture of some candles and offered Georgette who blogs at “A Walk on the Bright Side” to use the picture for one of her poems.

Georgetteann created “Eternal” for my Twinkle.

Make sure you go and visit A Walk on the Bright Side.

The Monster I love

I was 34 when I was first introduced to this monster.  I was not ready to meet him yet.  I am too young; I have 6 more years to mentally prepare myself for this predestined meeting.

 I heard all the agonizing stories of the women who went before me and none of it was good.

You see this monster hurts every women that it touches.   Regardless of our history we all dread having to see this monster.  It takes us and squeezes and squeezes to the point that we feel that we will POP.  I still do not know why we don’t. 

And to make matters worse a woman is the one that makes it squeeze even harder. She lines you up for the kill shot time and time again.   

My Monster
My Monster

Although I fear this monster I am equally grateful for it too.  My monster detected breast cancer in me twice.  As a result I have now been cancer free for over 10 years.   

I had to visit my monster yesterday for my annual mammogram and luckily I only needed to endure 2 images.   No tears today “ALL IS GOOD”!!
