Freedom from any more emotional pain and strife.
The cackling hens offering advise and chocolate.
Secretly hoping Mary would put on some

called her a whore and some, crazy.
So what if she was married nine times!
She was now thinking of going
back to number seven!!
Her current husband was such a bore.
He was a cad and a lier.
It was time to develop a plan of attack!
If you have your own 55 go on over to visit the G-man and let him know...at Mr. Know-It-All!

They walked across the stage beaming
It took 14 months to get here, but was well
worth the struggle.
Every week night, sitting in the class, backs stiff, eyes dozing and
minds wandering...But certain words snapped them back to attention.
Here's to their better future...
Cash in their pockets...respect.
They finally made it!!
If you have your own celebratory 55 then go and check in with the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and have your own celebration!

the moon laughs and whispers,
'tis near Halloween.
HAVE A GREAT HALLOWEEN AND DON'T TAKE ANY APPLES!
It was time to go visit the Pumpkin Patch again,
but I didn't mind, because we would find some
large pumpkins and that meant PIE!
As my dad pulled the car out of the driveway
he informed us that this year we would wear
something special for our HUNT!
Thanks DAD...HuGE SkeLeTon HEADs!!
Go fly on over to see the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and tell him you have a 55...

Erotic thoughts danced in my head.
Walking back to my car he started a conversation.
Small talk...Lovely day - not many clouds in the sky.
Bye for now!
Erotic thoughts and fantasies bubbled forth...
Oh well, I thought, as I sucked on my vanilla shake!
If you have any words bubbling up inside your head, jot them down and go tell the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All.

or the Worst.
You kept us fed and clothed.
You made sure our environment
was clean and safe.
Although, I never heard "I Love You", I know you do.
You had a hard childhood
I understand your fragility...

She was old and cantankerous and really didn't want to be bothered by the whole affair.
She knew a promise made to her dying sister could not be broken.
Mrs. Tidwell peered inside the closet and didn't notice the smell of mothballs.

"Merde" he said, as he jumped up out of bed.
Over sleeping today was not a luxury he could afford.
Yvonne would be over at any minute.
Marcel scrambled to find a clean shirt to throw on his tired body.
"Merde", the future in-laws arrive today!

I am relieved to see the temperture drop.
I rejoice in bringing out my favorite lap blankets.
Open windows, turn off air-conditioner and enjoy the breezes.
I settle onto my spot on the couch and
cover up with blankie.
Oh no...now it begins... SNEEZE!

Everything had changed. The whole waterfront was now developed
with new high rises and flashy storefronts.
Young people paraded around without a clue of the historical past
that haunted this place.
Dana was sad to give up the past...but hopeful to see this revision.
If you have your own 55 please drop by the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and visit other 55ers...

Why? You are married, right? Yes, but that was arranged!
I tried a few times to love him, but it never worked.
Now, you do have a daughter...
At least you have the child to Love, I cried!

It was no use to waste any energy.
Night was falling fast and no one would see her now in this musty, leafy ditch.
She tried to move her legs,
but the lack of circulation made it impossible.
Luckily, she could lift up her head and move her fingers.
If you have your own 55 get out of the ditch and go tell the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All.

Why did she encourage this union?
Celia enjoyed her outings with Ben and was only being a confidant. Full of encouragement and understanding, as she herself was going through a divorce.
Ben longed for companionship and Celia was his beckon of light.
If you have your own 55 ...go and follow the light to Mr. Know-It-All and enlighten the G-Man.
Share your story with other weary travelers.

come over here and sit for awhile.
Although, the distance may be long
I can distract myself with a song.
Oh, little one you know, I'll be here for you in tow.
When you're feeling low, you'll always have a place to go.
So, come here and sit for awhile.
This is dedicated to my friends niece who lives in England and who is pregnant and just found out today that she is having a boy!
If you have your own 55 dedication jot it down and go visit the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All...

The crew below were excited to begin their journey.
The ship sailed past Devils Island and Rum Reef.
The sound of singing began with a familiar sea shanty.
Mary Read stood proud, for she was the famous
English, female pirate.
Ahoy, finally recognition!
Ahoy matie , if you have your own 55 shanty to sing let the G-Man hear about it over at Mr. Know-It-All.

He drifted into town with a guitar and a bad habit.
Traveling had made him weary. He longed for a hot shower, shave and a cold beer.
His only friend was the open road, but now he even grew weary of that companion.
Las Vegas had taken a toll on his senses. He had to refocus.
If you have your own 55 drift on over to the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and let him focus on your work...

Clubbing to death his enemy.
He then set his sights on the strange, female creature that stood before him dazed.
He will take her back to his cave dwelling and
make her part of the tribe.
She was afraid but also excited at the same time.
So he was Neanderthal!
If you have a 55 of your own...don't be a caveman...jot it down and go club the G-Man at

In 10 days these little seeds will sprout!
She was never a "green thumb", but decided
to try something new.
She never got the connection of human to plant.
But ever since that new neighbor Mr. Jones moved in

She got the urge!

"Don't use too much", she said.
As they both sprinkled the crystals unto their canned beans.
They were both unaware of the highly present sodium content.
Their blood pressure rising like an active volcano!
"I wonder if I'll fly today", she said.
"I wonder if we'll strike today!"
Today's 55 was a reflection of what's going on in todays news! Switch to Sea Salt, take a train and don't forget to tip the doorman!

This is my brief 55 interpretation of one of those dogs morning ride...
Yorgi waited on the platform for the 8:15 to Tverskaya.
Others gathered round, reading papers or just snoozing.
Yorgi kept calm as the train entered the station.
Doors opened, the humans embarked and at the last split second he dashed inside.
Yorgi was happy and looking forward to arriving in Tverskaya.
Today was shawarma day!

The smell of incense burned her nostrils.
"He has risen from the dead", she heard the priest exclaim.
Surely, this was a sign of a new beginning, a new horizon.
Life would be easier now that her abusive husband had passed on...
certainly to the depths of HELL!
This Easter Sunday she has RISEN again!!
If you have rise to write your own "55" please join us in celebration and make sure you visit the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and confess to our "55" father...

A red faced, creepy man was grinning and offering him a donut.
Timmy was hungry and really wanted the chocolate treat.
He caustiously lowered the car window just enough to let the donut slip through.
It fell to the floorboard.
The man laughed and turned away!
This story was inspired by a true story from a friend of mine. We were reliving our creepy moments from the past!
If you have a creepy or not so creepy tale to tell in "55" words, please do so and don't forget to check in with the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All!

Mrs. Tidwell sipped her Irish Breakfast tea and took her last bite of buttered toast.
As she gazed out her kitchen window, she noticed the birds chirping; the buds on the trees...
How fast Winter had slipped by her!
Work, home and sleep was all she knew.
Something inside of her longed for a change.

My ancestors were killers.
I was taken away from freedom
at an early age.
No wonder, I hold all this rage.
I'm in captivity...I want to swim free.
These beings watching over me, have no clue what I can do...
More than Jump....Spit....and Chew!
If you have a Flash Friday 55 story to tell...go check out the G-Man at Mr. KnowItAll and do tell!

Every night around the track.
Solid soles hitting the crushed gravel.
And so it goes with one step...I start the journey of discovery.
Finding insight in the heavens above; breathing in oxygen to cleanse the solid soul.
I continue to walk!

Sharp as a whip the cougar studied her prey.
Alone he sat watching from the shadows.
His heart started racing...he knew he was hypnotized.
He watched her approach.
Steadily she drew near her prey.
She could sense the tension.
Carefully, she stood next to him,
whilst sipping her MARTINI!
"Come here often, she asked"
