Microfiction Monday # 47




Welcome to Microfiction Monday.
     Where a picture paints 140 characters.

Susan over at Stonyriver hosts Microfiction Monday The rules are simple,to use Susan's picture she posts then compose a story up to 140 characters including spaces and punctuation.

I wish all of my friends from Microfiction Monday a joyous Holiday.
I have enjoyed meeting all of you so much and look forward to 2011 for even more great stories.

So here is this weeks picture and my story to go with.


















We're never going to get to Grandma's house for Christmas.
We asked the train conductor for the "Forest Park" station
 not the FOREST!


Now leap on over to Susan's place and leave your name.
She even has a brilliant counter to help us count
As Susan promises, it's fast, it's fiction, it's fun!

    They sure don't listen very well.
    I have gotten off the train at the wrong station for just that reason.

  18. Oh how cute, Peg. I've got to go check this out. Love your outtake on the pic. To cute. Do you know every time I write a comment to you it comes back to me as bad mail. When I get it again I'll try e-mailing it to you. I'm going to do it this time too. I have wrote you every-time you've stopped by me on Monday's Music Moves Me. I don't know what's going on. Let me know if you get this please. Thanks hon.

  21. Forest, I get it... They sure don't look dressed for too much walking-LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, I've seen traveler's get on the wrong train, but never have the conductor lead them astray by getting off at the wrong station! I sure hope they get to Gramma's safe and the B.B.Wolf doesn't get them!
    Have a wonderful and warm Christmas holiday!

  27. We have a couple of metro stops like that -- you have to be a local to really understand which one you need! It's the revenge on the tourists for blocking up the sidewalks. (Of course we need them for our income, but small matter, right?)

    Merry Christmas!
