MICROFICTION MONDAY # 48

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.


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

 
"Don't worry Gertrude, said Heathclif
ten more miles, we'll be in Atlantic City
eating Salt Water Taffy Wrappers...
WAIT UP!"
(My homage to the late, great Red Skleton!)


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!

  1. Heathcliff had better power up with more saltwater taffy if he wants to catch up with Gertrude on the home stretch. Good one, Peggy!

    Happy New Year (in 6 days)!

  24. Wait for me, too! (They can have the wrappers. I want the taffy!)

    I'm afraid they won't get my wrappers without rooting through the garbage for them. I never litter.
