Microfiction Monday

Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters.

Susan over at stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday. I still can't believe that I can write something on my blog in under 140 words.

The rules are simple,to use Susan's picture she posts then compose a story up to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.
Then hop on over to Susan's and leave your name. She even has a brilliant gadget to help us count.
Design 215's character counter

As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun.

Here's this week's picture, and my story to go with it:

"Toto don't stand too close to that rainbow," Dorothy yelled to her dog.
Remember what happened the last time we took a ride over one!"


  1. Now my mind is wondering what happened last time. This was good, it left one thinking.

    Do you think maybe they met up with Smurfette?

    Oh to make the musical notes press the alt key and then type 13 or 14.

  2. Oh, I love it, Peggy! I've been thinking about it and just may have to join in the fun!

    Enjoy the holiday!


  3. Good for you for getting into this. I'm too gutless yet. Your story was such a great idea!

  4. Oh no! I laughed out loud. Some dogs never learn, and I'm glad mine's not the only one--

    But now you've got me thinking, what DID happen to those two a few years down the road? I imagine Kansas was never quite the same in their eyes!

    Thanks for playing, Peggy, I *loved* this!

  5. Love it! Did you know you can buy "ruby red slippers" from the Smithsonian gift shop? Just to be prepared, you know.

  6. LOL, very funny take on he photo! I agree with Susan, I wonder what happened with Dorothy and Toto when they got back.

  7. Barbara H;
    I wondered the same thing. I had a lot more! The trick was to put a tickler in just 140.
    Thanks Barbara H, and so nice to meet you!


    I havet that catalog, I'm going to find it and look!
    I do have a blue glass Cinderella slipper from childhood. It probably needs a red friend!
    Thank for stopping by today!

  8. Bill;

    No doubt Dorothy and smurfetts are meeting up somewhere. They may even make a movie together I hear.
    Thanks for the muisical note directions. Love that! :)

  9. Mama Zen;

  14. And I was just going to say "Thank heaven no one mentioned flying monkeys" and there goes Quilly. :)

    You suppose our childhoods are visiting here today? The more I read, the more I giggle.

    You're doing a GREAT job! Now see if you can convince Kay to come join our wacky fun. :)

  15. Hope;

    Rainbows always bring back childhood and The Wizard was on last night.

    Kay has mentioned doing one and so has Sylvia and Lin. So we'll see, you never know. Maybe if(when) i get better they will come on over!
    Have a great Thanksgiving my friend!

    Granny Sue;

    Thank you, I'm still a work in progress!
