Driving, I noticed the leaves are almost off the trees...
Why is it still warm outside?
I suppose it's Global Warming!
Ah, it's out of my control...
Just like the changes in the Seasons.
The changes in my life...
I run to grab it and it slips away...
I give up and drive on alone!

FLASH 55 FICTION FRIDAY - "Young Innocent Fools"

" Hey kids, come here."
"You want to make some money?"

"Sure Mista...what do we have to do?"

"Just put these flyers on all the cars in the parking lot...
I'll meet you all back here."

We dashed and darted...and slapped hundreds of windsheilds.

"Hey, where is that guy?"
Ah, young innocent fools!
If you have a 55 park it and shout out to the g-man at Mr. Know-It-All!

Last Thursday evening my best friends cousin past away, her name was Mickey. She lost the battle with the Big C. It was heredity, bad luck and I suppose faith that took her away...she was only 44! She leaves behind a loving husband, one son, one daughter, a father, brothers, sisters and many relatives and friends.

This weekend some of her ashes will be taken to be released at the beach in Myrtle Beach, SC.
She loved the beach, ocean and good times with friends and family. Since I can not be there to participate in the service I dedicate this 55 to her memory.

"In Memory"

"Oh, Mickey you're so fine...Oh Mickey."
We sang this to you many times at the Girl's Parties.

Your smile was infectious. You were happy all the time;
or so it seemed...

You knew your life was to end soon.

After the senseless suffering, you are now at rest.
Ashes to scatter...we all smile.

If you have a 55 story please check in with the g-man at Mr. Know-It-All.
