Microfiction Monday # 28

Welcome to Microfiction Monday,
where a picture paints 140 characters.
Susan over at Stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday

Here is this weeks picture and my story to go with

When I found out that Dad's one wish was to be IN a can of tuna
not ON a can of tuna, said Charley Jr.
I chose a different path!

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 character counter to help us count.
As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun!


  1. Good for Charley Jr. Glad he doesn't want to follow in the path of his Father's Fin Prints. Susan did make it harder this week. Nice one Peggy.

    The word verification is Perch, hmmm, sounds fishy.

  2. Thanks Bill, Susan likes to keep raising the bar!
    " Fin prints" very funny!
    Have a nice evening!

  3. Oh, fun one, Peggy! And, yes, good for Charley Jr.!! Have a great week, my friend!


  4. This shot of Charley Jr. must have been snapped after supper. He looks "stuffed"!

    Funneeee! Thanks for the laugh!

  5. Sparkle;

    He had a big dinner at the Lazy Dog fish fry!
    You are just sooooooooooo funny!
    Even your comments are funny

  6. Sylvia;

    Good ole Charley Sr, he never was accepted at Starkist. He died a broken fish!
    Have wonderful evening, it's kind of hot and humid here. Beats ice and snow!

  7. Oh, I remember Charley Tuna---good one...made me chuckle at the memory of that commercial!

  8. Pat;

    Poor Charley, he was just never good enough!
    Have a good week, Pat.
    Thanks for coming by.

  9. Absolutely hilarious, Peggy. I'm glad that's one guy not following in his father's footsteps (or chip off the old fin!) Have a great week--and thanks for the laugh!

  10. Very good, Peg! I thought this was a really hard photo to do a story for. Good job.

  11. Michael;

    Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
    I ;ove your "chip off the old fin" remark.
    Havea very good week ahead!

  12. Kay;

    I didn't have a lot of ideas on this one.
    Pretty much just the one theme.
    Been a busy week , so didn't stress to much.
    How are you feeling? I thought you were better then you said that you didn't feel well.

  13. LOL. Sometimes we just got to chose different paths. Have a wonderful week ahead.

  14. Rosidah;

    Can't always follow our parents.
    Thanks for your delightful comment .
    Have a very nice week.

  15. You have to have a dream. Mine is a homage to On the Waterfront this week and is here.
