Today’s stream of consciousness prompt is, “key.” We can use it any way we want and have fun!
My first thought went to Key Largo where we had our honeymoon seven years ago on 12/1/12. We were thinking about getting married on 12/12/12 which would’ve been my birthday, but it was a Wednesday. The number 12……. I hope we go back to Key Largo some day and the Hilton resort there was very natural with lots of trees and a beach. Maybe I have a picture….
While I was in the honeymoon folder I saw some other photos I like from The Wharf at Summerland Key:
And here’s another one from the place we stayed.
The water was a little cold in December, so when we go back, it will be in the spring. I’m going to Florida again for my reunion with my high school girlfriends in April. That will be exciting!
The other thing I thought about when I read the word, “key,” was that I have all these keys that go to who knows what. But I don’t want to throw them away, because keys are important, right? My father was the same way. I have inherited his big ring of about 30 keys, plus some on key chains….. There are a few skeleton keys. I’m sure there’s an art project in there one day. One of his keys which he will never use, nor will I, because he has passed on through the pearly gates where he did not need a key, cause he and Jesus were pretty close….
Where was I? Oh, there’s a key that belonged to my dad that has a plastic typed strip on a nursing home key chain that says, “explosives.” The other side says, “ammo.” Dad was a marine and didn’t throw much away including a few boxes of ammo which I have but they are not locked, so what does this ammo key go to? I’ve inherited ammo boxes, but they aren’t locked. Good strong storage boxes…
Oh, if keys could talk, the stories they would tell.
I don’t think my dad ever went to Key Largo, but he’d like this song. He could be pretty romantic when it came to my mom. I guess I’m missing them.

Here are the rules:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!
