An Afternoon With Jeanine And Toby

Larry’s take on the prompt!


Toby and Jeanine were taking their daily walk in the local park.

‘That exhibit,’ she said, ‘always reminds me of the Dylan and Hendrix song that refers to the joker and the thief.’

‘Yes,’ he said. I have been looking into the Catholic intellectual world lately. I read an interesting article about poverty, chastity, and obedience….Marx’s, Freud’s, and Nietsche’s main targets. This always reminds me of where Nietsche has spread his poison around.’

They then walked farther on down the road, and got some tuna and lox at the local kosher stand.

The sun was shining so brightly that afternoon that people were joyously taking photographs of all the sights. The happy couple quietly did some window shopping while awaiting the arrival of the bus they were supposed to take after their long day.

‘I have really enjoyed our day,’ he said.

Simply Six Minutes

Sharyl’s take on the prompt…Poor Joe? Maybe not.

The Bag Lady


Some people told Joe he was crazy to work for old man Jones, but Joe ignored them. With no degrees or diplomas and a big family to support, Joe took whatever job he could find. No matter what Mr. Jones asked him to do, Joe did it.

Joe’s work ethic is rarely seen in these “me me me” days, but—a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do—was his attitude. Of course old man Jones knew this and took full advantage of Joe, watching him struggle with his bike full of bricks.

Friday Fictioneers: Those Americans Again!

Rochelle is the host of Friday Fictioneers where we are asked to write a complete story in less than 100 words:

Those Americans! They don’t give a hoot about property, they only want to see what they want! 

For God’s sake, Fern, it isn’t that big of a deal. They didn’t park on anyone’s grass!

Not this time. But if someone would say something then maybe it wouldn’t be a problem. 

What are you going to do, really? Have a giant sign at the airport and border entries telling people to be respectful of our property? 

Well, yes, that would be a start!

Fern, no one is going to listen when they can get a clear image of that old castle.

My Fantasy: Compilation 08/05/2022

I carved my name in water or so I told myself
purporting it’s my bijoux, fine findings of an elf
a triangle in shape so explicitly pronounced
Like a lesson from my mother my view’s what really counts
the recorder of my exploit is only my old phone
and if you don’t believe me, well sorry now it’s gone.
