Flash Friday 55 - "Regards to Mom"

You weren't the Best Mother...

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

and times

were tough.

I understand your fragility...

Regards to you Mom...Happy 75th Birthday!

If you have your own 55 please go and check in with the G-man at Mr. Know-It-All...

Flash Friday 55 - "Wedding Day Blues"

Mrs. Tidwell had no clue as to what she would wear to her nephews wedding.
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.

If you have a 55 of your own go over the see the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All let him know you played and then go visit other 55 players as well.

Flash Friday 55 - "Merde"

Marcel awoke with the sun shining in his eyes.
"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!
If you have your own 55 to tell go jump on over to the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and let him know!

Flash Friday 55 - "The Nose Knows"

The weather is changing as I notice the fallen leaves.
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 it begins... SNEEZE!

If you have a 55 of your own go over to see the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All and let him know...

Flash Friday 55 - "Circus Time"

A memory from my past - When I was a kid and went to the circus this clown "Emmett Kelly" was performing and he came and sat right next to me...but he just turned to the little girl next to me and didn't even give me a 2nd glance...I was very disappointed!
"Circus Time"
JoJo's memory of the circus was filled with joy and excitement.
He could almost smell the popcorn and cotton candy.
He remembered the thundering sounds of the elephants as they circled the ring.
As he wheeled himself up to the window, searching for the Big Top, he smiled and thought
about all those crazy clowns.
If you have a 55 of your own stomp on over to see the G-Man at Mr. Know-It-All...
