Twofer One Liner – #1LinerWeds

One Liner Wednesday and JusJoJan always go together, but it’s a little more complicated today. Yesterday, WordPress sent me the image below. I’ve had long streaks before (during a book launch) but this time, it’s due to Linda’s other challenge – Just Jot January. Below the image is my One Liner for today.

I enjoy JusJoJan, but yesterday I reached a point where I needed a break in my blogging.

I couldn’t keep the posting streak alive. However, due to the loosey-goosey forgiving nature of Linda’s annual challenge, I think I can double up on my jots. Yesterday’s prompt was “Periwinkle” and was given to us by Maggie. I love Maggie’s blog and I hated to skip her prompt. I’m hoping she’s a good sport and accepts that late is better than never, well, maybe.

I was pretty sure Periwinkle was a character name. For some reason, I associated it with “Inspector” and was certain he was part of a crime drama. According to EveryCharacter.com,

“Periwinkle, better known as Peri, is Tinkerbell’s fraternal twin in the Disney Fairies franchise. They were born from the same first laugh of a baby and share many personality traits. She is a frost-talent fairy, living in the Winter Woods part of Pixie Hollow.”

I’m going to assume that she solves crimes there much like Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. And, given the time of the year, it’s also part of Just-Jot-January. If you have a one-liner, I encourage you to join in on the fun. You can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.

  1. I really like all the misty shots, particularly the one with raindrops on the branch and the sun in the background. The partially frozen pond is a beauty. But the misty shot of Old Glory with a streak of sunshine lighting her up is the winner!

    Happy Hump Day Dan. More rain on the way Friday….but we don’t have to shovel it!

    • Our flags are back at half staff due to a State Senator having been killed in an accident with a wrong-way driver on the highway. I didn’t want to feature another lowered flag. When I saw that scene on my way home, I decided to use it.

      More rain – ugh – but yes, easier to deal with than snow, and misty/foggy shots are filling my galleries this year.

      Have a great second half of the week, Ginger. Slide down easy.

  2. What a lovely gallery! Of course I love the trestle shots, but that one of a foggy morning is especially artful to me. I do like the way you find beauty in the daily. As for Periwinkle, I had no idea! Thanks for the continuing education, and congrats on the streak!

    • Thanks Maureen. The streak is now back at one. I’m OK with that. Periwinkle threw me for a loop, but it wasn’t a homework assignment. I think you might like that trestle as much as I do. These foggy mornings have been good for photographs.

  3. Congratulations on that writing streak, Dan. 😉 I do like the idea of an Inspector Periwinkle, but the description of Tinkerbell’s twin is equally satisfying. Lovely gallery as always. Is that first image of a baseball field? It is a beautiful image. Community sports fields are so American.

    • Thanks Maggie. I reset the streak at one, but I have managed to write about all the JusJoJot prompts. The is a baseball field. It looks a little lonely in winter, but I liked that photo. You gave us a hard prompt, but I like that we can have fun with them.

  4. Oh, I love the image you titled Foggy Morning, and the Moon over the Trestle bridge.

    I didn’t know Tinkerbell had a twin!! She’s my favorite fairy. I love that she’s the frost twin and lives in the winter woods. I’ve never seen a pin while shopping for pins while at Disney parks. I’m going to see if there are any somewhere.

  5. Oh! Those photos are so beautiful every single one of them . Well done on the blogging streak! And food for thought on your findings for Tinkerbell’s twin sister Periwinkle!
    ( Hope she is more cooth than my interpretation 🤩🤩🤩🤣🤣🤣)

  6. Lots of atmospheric photos here. I love the shot of that hazy baseball field. I do agree the road minus guardrails on a foggy day is best left un-navigated. We have a couple of trestle bridges nearby, and a local business park is called Trestle Bridge. They are very cool.
