This week’s photo prompt is by Ron Pruitt, and I must say, for me, it has been one of the most challenging. But sometimes challenges bear new fruit, and my story this week is outside of my typical fare. And I must say I rather enjoyed this trip to the dark side. 🙂
Perhaps darkness struck me because this is Madison Woods‘ last week as our leader. As the creator of the Friday Fictioneers, she has given us all another reason to look forward to Fridays, as well as a means of inviting new visitors to read our works. Thank you, Madison. We’ll miss you, but I also know your future ventures will be every bit as successful!
And best wishes to our new leader, Rochelle Wishoff-Fields. With the combination of her writing talent and witty, enthusiastic personality, I know she’ll be a huge success!
The man in the cowboy hat snickered, listening to folks in line complain about the baby about to be swallowed by the bus.
“Nothing worse than a crying baby on a long road trip.”
“I have a headache just thinking about it.”
Heh-heh. Cowboy laughed to himself.
Them folks for dang sure don’t know what they’s getting themselves into on this trip. Baby’s just the appetizer. Buster’s appetite will be well-whetted and ready to swallow the main course by the time them folks board. And dessert? Well, that’ll be the fine, young filly buying cherry Chapstick in the bus station.
