100 Word Wednesday: Week 28

Thanks Bikurgurl for this weeks 100 word challenge.

Peter couldn’t believe it and called the police straight away.
Even the ugly chicken seemed to wink knowingly at him from the window.
Stolen from his grandmother’s parlour dresser some three months before, it was all there, every last bowl, cup and plate.
It was a standing joke that they could look but not touch.
Gran had never used her wedding dinner service, but put it on show so that her friends knew she had one, having ‘married well’.
Turned out it was the great nephew of one of said ‘friends’ who’d nicked it.
Silly sod had fenced it locally.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Don’t you just know these characters!! My late Mother-in-law had a Willow dinner set which she rarely used, but after my husband’s dad passed away, she brought all the good stuff out and used it for everyday, Said life was too short.
    Well done.

    Life is too short to not use the good china! Interestingly found in a local shop, perhaps a cry for help? Thank you for joining us again this week ❤
