Friday Plot Swap~Characters wanted

Friday Plot Swap

Dawn's Plot Swap
Have a plot? Leave one
Need a plot ? Take one
Characters Wanted
Where do you get your characters? From people in your life? People at the grocery story? Movies and television?
For this week's plot swap, I found some people who I think would make interesting characters. 
An elderly Italian artist took out a full-page ad in Italy's leading newspaper Wednesday to mourn the death of her beloved 15-year-old cat, Sky, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.

An 11-year-old boy in Brazil's northeastern city of Mossoro is drawing attention with his purportedly magnet-like qualities...forks, knives, scissors, cooking pans, cameras and other metal objects seem drawn to his body and remain stuck on his chest, stomach and back.

Police in Strongsville, Ohio, were on the lookout Saturday for someone disguised as a banana who attacked an advertising mascot in a gorilla costume before splitting, WJW-TV reported.

Swap with me!

These are hilarious! Where do you find such things? I have nothing to equal those ha-ha's!

I spent a couple of hours last night listening to my lumberjacks (okay, the guy up the street, who's cutting down trees for me, and his brothers) tell stories about all the fights they were in during their misspent youths...very, very interesting.

Even if only half the stories are true, there is some good imagination stimulation there (and hey...lumberjacks).

Jessica~ I found these in the "ODD NEWS" tab of my local new website.

Teri~ I bet Lumberjacks tell good stories. I don't think we have lumberjacks in Texas.
